Serenity-A jewel in the crown of film-making
It's not very often at all when a show will move me to tears. I mean seriously, tears were forming in my eyes. The first few moments in that theater were spectacular, I immediately knew I was among friends and fans who knew how I felt about this series. I was so tense and excited watching it that I hushed Brandon from talking so I can take in every second of it.
People laughed, they gasped, the shouted at the bad guys with hatred. I did too. I never felt more sad than at some of the most heartbreaking moments in this movie. And I've never felt more happy watching the most exciting parts in the movie. There was a certain part where literally every single person in the audience the fans and the normal viewers gasped at what they saw. And yet when everything was so bad, and it was just hopeless, and for the first time in a film I really wondered if the good guys would make it through. I truly feared that they would fail and the damn Feds would win but they did it, they pulled through and gosh I really hoped that they would take back some of the things that happened in that film. But I knew they couldn't, the movie was emotionally real at it's heart and sacrifices were made. At the end, there was cheering and clapping and I shouted at the top of my lungs, " Bring back Firefly!" Which made some people laugh and cheer louder.
God bless Joss Wheden, and everyone who was a part of this very special experiment in film-making. Firefly belonged to the fans, it was ours, it never belonged to Fox. Just like the Serenity itself, the Firefly franchise was a long shot and a long shot it will always be. In all honesty, there really is true comfort in knowing the Serenity is still out there, flying in the blackness of space, it's like the echo of a whisper and the faintest glimmer of light, just waiting to be reached out for and caught.

Fantastic Four (2005)
Excellent . . .wait . . .I mean Fantastic! That's a pun!
I'm going to be short and to the point. This movie was excellent, I'm going to say excellent, since everyone is going to say fantastic. Anyway, the story differs a little from the original storyline but the characterization of the characters was just perfect. The plot is straight forward with few surprises and it was always nice to a see a nod or two to the hardcore fans with cameos by stan lee and mentions of Latveria. Dr. Doom was just awesome, I've never been able to imagine what his voice would sound like but the way his voice was so menacing beneath the mask in this movie was chilling. Doom is probably the best portrayed Marvel villain as of yet. Reed and Sue were both well portrayed and there was a great number of invisible woman jokes to get a good chuckle out of. The hands down BEST part of this movie was Chris Evans and Michael Chicklis. They banter and go back and forth so much as Human Torch and Thing that it was just like reading a comic of Fantastic Four. That was the real gem of the movie. And who doesn't like a bad ass hot head like Johnny Storm? This movie is definitely an 8 of out 10. I know I know I said I wouldn't be cheesy but come on, it's the freaking fantastic four. So I say. Flame On!
