It ain’t happening.

Hi again guys.

This past weekend, I had a chance to see THREE films, two in theatre, and one that I should have seen a long time ago on DVD.

Let me tell you about the DVD one first: It was Serenity, the movie continuation of the FOX-network-canceled-but-became-a-huge-DVD-hit TV series, Firefly. If you haven’t given Firefly a real honest shot, you need to. It really is good, even if you don’t like Sci-Fi, although it’s just as easy to see it as a Western. Whatever your perspective, the show is brilliantly written and acted, and should never have been canceled, if the massive DVD and film sales have any say in the matter. Serenity more or less wraps up the outstanding plotlines that developed over Firefly’s abruptly ended single season, but still manages to feel very epic in the process, especially if you’ve seen the series. There’s not much in the way of “reintroduction” of everyone, but it’s enough to get you to understand who everyone is and their outstanding relationships. Still, you’ll get much more out of it having seen Firefly first. I recommend both.

The Incredible Hulk is Marvel Studio’s attempt at redoing the big Green Guy (they’re the film arm of Marvel Comics, creator of Hulk), and after the other recent Hulk film, which was directed by Ang Lee and starred Eric Bana, I had some reservations about this one. You might as well. I have a message for you all: DON’T. This film is LIGHT-YEARS beyond that first one. It stars Ed Norton and Liv Tyler, both of whom deliver great performances. The CGI of the Hulk and Abomination both look great, and their battle really feels visceral and brutal, like the animated character have real weight to them. There’s also plenty of references to the original show from back in the 70s, and lots of sly comic references for fans to spot. The ending appearance by…well, actually, not gonna say it, topped the proverbial cake. This film is good, and if you were a fan of Iron Man, check this one out too…it won’t disappoint.

Finally, I saw the newest M. Night Shyamalan film: The Happening.

It was atrocious. Really really bad. I am seriously warning you all not to waste your money

I could go on and on about how utterly STUPID this film’s plot was, how bad the acting was, and how horrible the direction looked, but I’m not. Because Christopher Orr of The New Republic has already done so. His review explains EXACTLY what is so awful about this film. It does have spoilers, but trust me, you WANT to read this if you’re thinking about seeing this film.

Aight guys, that’s all for now. I’ll see you around. Be well, blessed, and watched over. Love ya’ll

    Yep, your so right, that was the worst movie ever. Belongs on a no name cable channel at 3am. Josh, don’t do it. It’s 6.50 and two hours of your life you’ll never get back.
