Watched the BDM again
Saturday, October 29, 2005

Well, I got to go to the BDM again today. I saw it opening weekend and then again the following week (on a Tuesday). I was excited to get another chance to go. The theater showing Serenity had dropped it from 2 screens to 1 and I started thinking time was getting short. When I got there I was pleasantly surprised to see way more people than I'd expected. I'd thought a 1:30 show on a Saturday a day short of a month after the movie was released would be pretty lightly attended. Boy, was I wrong!!

Needless to say, I enjoyed the movie just as much as I did opening weekend...without the tears. My chest got tight and my heart sped up and I jumped when Simon got shot, even though I knew it was going to happen. I was able to listen to the music more and pay more attention to exactly WHEN there was "sound in space" and when there wasn't (how well does sound carry in the thermosphere?). I can't wait for the video!

After the show I stayed for the credits and the lady two seats over from me stayed as well. I've no idea how old she was, though I'd guess in her late 60's. We started talking and it turns out she'd only seen a few Firefly episodes. I mentioned that I have the DVDs and we talked about them for a bit. (I mentioned libraries and Amazon.com.) She really enjoyed the BDM (of course!). This was the first time I've ever gotten to talk with a complete stranger about the movie or Firefly. What fun.
