Saw an ad for the Firefly movie – “Serenity”
. So… should I get out my Firefly DVD’s and finally watch all of them? I only have 2 weeks before the movie comes out.
Hmmmm… and is that mystery girl a vampire slayer? He wouldn’t do that? Would he?
It would certainly be a lot better than watching Billy Zane as The Phantom… (I think his costume is way too purple…)… and poor Kristy Swanson semi-reprising her role as Buffy — though under the alias “Diana Palmer”…
Or maybe… Buffy is her great-granddaughter?
No way!!!! The Phantom’s horse is keeping up with an airplane and the Phantom and Diana are jumping onto it seperately… 30 seconds apart… fast horse…(Diana – “I can’t believe we just did that” — and neither can I….)
Best line of the movie –> “Don’t smoke in the Skull Cave!”
Okay… so we’re flying 1000 miles in a 1930′s seaplane… with the masked man hanging onto one of the pontoons… and we don’t notice how that affects the plane’s stability in the air?
“Us girls should stick together.” (Having a Buffy-Faith moment? Catherine Zata-Jones (the bad girl) to Kristy Swanson (the Good Girl) when the evil pirates capture them… subtext? In a Hollywood B movie? Inconceivable! )
And the bad (white) guy? Kind of overblown pathetic…
So… I’m the evil head pirate (who looks like the evil guy from the “Mortal Kombat” movie). This guy in a purple suit grabs a rope on the OTHER side of my cave/hideout (several hundred feet away) and swings on it towards me… and I can’t get out of the way
in the 30 seconds it takes him to get there? Or maybe just shoot him?
And who designed the pirate’s lair? Certainly not them…
Ooh… duel to the death with little skull-like artifacts… with laser beams coming out of their eyes… powerful enough to destroy the island hideout…
Will he tell Diana his real name? Looks like she guessed all on her own… will she forget
again by the sequel? So we can have lots of mistaken identity bits? Oh wait… there never was a sequel…
Okay… it really is just barely a B movie… the eye candy doesn’t make up for the bad writing and semi-expensive corny special effects. But it has that something special… there is a kind of “heart” to it… and that is something “Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow” really lacked – Even though they are set during the same approximate time period.
