The promoters of the upcoming sci-fi flick, Serenity, want bloggers at their screenings, so any bloggers out there are invited to free previews across the country. You can sign up over at Townhall. (Oh, and there is no confirmation e-mail. I’ve gotten that question a few times, but you’re all set once you fill out the form at Townhall)
Serenity is a movie based on a short-lived but much-beloved TV series Firefly from Joss Whedon, the creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel.
I, for one, was not aware that there is such thing as a sci-fi Western, but I e-mailed Jay Tea and he clued me in on the whole thing. Since hearing from him, I’ve decided that any movie/TV show for which the catch phrase is, “Big damn heroes, sir,” sounds all right by me. Here’s the pertinent dialogue, courtesy of Jay:
MAL (Captain Malcolm Reynolds): Well, look at this! Appears we got here just in the nick of time. What does that make us?
ZOE (First Officer): Big damn heroes, sir.
If you happen not to be a blogger and you happen to be in the D.C. area, Townhall is hosting a screening for folks in the area next Thursday night (blogger or non-blogger). I’ll have more info on that later.
Jay, I hope you can make it to a showing in the Cow Hampshire vicinity. Thanks for your help on this. And, I know this is outside my SCOTUS area, but I wanted y’all to know about it.
