Raffle Requirements
Josh 201604 KWP
I'm now requiring that if you wish to be my friend anymore,
you must send me a scan of your own Serenity movie-ticket stub.

You must scan more than just the text.

I have to see the edges all around.

If you lost your stub, you'll have to go again.

Duplicate entries will be disqualified.

Each valid and unique scan will be an entry into the raffle.

Raffle prize will be delivered in person or by US postal.

The current raffle prize is one blue, glitter, USB Lava(tm) lamp.

Hmmmm, I'll have to check with the man of the house, but I do believe we tossed those stubs. I would have liked that lamp, too.

Now, sit through that movie again or lose my friendship with Josh...hmmmmm......

sorry, Josh.

*grabs chest* Ahhh... Noo.

Ok ok, it wasn't that bad. :)

Just, not being a sci-fi girl, and having pretty much never seen a sci-fi movie or the show Firefly, I had a difficult time following. I did go into it open-minded too. I do give the movie credit for humor, though. Although I think I found some parts funny that weren't meant to be. :)

C'mon now, you know if it really comes down to it I'd sacrifice 2 more hours to remain friends. But it really won't come down to that, right?? :)

I dunno... maybe...


See, the fiction part is just a conduit for creative, unprovable ideas on science. The science part is just to give flash and conduit for the people part. The movie is/was REALLY about people, family, friends, interaction.

Having seen Firefly adds about 15% to the movie. It shows just how spooky, mysterious and abominable the reavers are. They tell how the characters met, and just how signifigant "crew" is...

I just think, "I'd love to have a spaceship" and "wow, cool technology" and 'wow, I'd love a wall of 23" LCD panels' and "oooo, that guy is SUCH a sociopath with sense of purpose.


Well, while I understand the whole people aspect (which really was what I was looking to take away from the movie), I had a difficult time relating and understanding because I did not understand the context of their interactions. I couldn't analyze the behaviors when I didn't know what they were a reaction to. I'd give examples but I don't want to spoil it for anyone, so I hope you get what I mean. I still don't know how long the reavers were around and why this crew specifically was after them (if that's what they were after). See? Total loss. :) But, I did get some of the more obvious interactions and humor, which made the movie "ok" for me.

As for the technological aspect, there was some cool stuff. I liked the visuals, and I could see it working in a general sense.

I SUPPOSE I can still talk to you...

Yah, from the series you get how esoteric the reavers were, but that they were growing as a presence. You get how docile River had been. You get better understanding of the interaction b/t Inara and Malcolm. Characters were a little less edgy and you got to see the "family" of it all grow. We have the set. Part of me says to let you borrow. Part says to send you copies. Part says "it's $30 on amazon..."

Speaking of, I need to finish watching the last episodes! :)

*glassy-eyed wandering off*

(Deleted comment)
I dunno, the bad guy wasn't ugly in this one. He WAS obviously at least neurotic, but possibly semi-psychotic. River is definitely psychotic. "This is just an object. It's not what you think it is." OOPS! That's not a twig, it's a 10mm, chrome plated, semi-automatic handgun.

I cannot currently find my stub. But I am thinking that I am going to go again when it comes to the cheap seats. I will enter then.

When is the raffle over?

12:30pm, Saturday, October 22.

Based on the fact that you were sitting next to me at said movie, I'm declaring myself exempt from the movie stub requirement (namely because I don't know what I did with it).

What if my so called geek of a husband hasn't hooked up the scanner yet?
And is this texas time?

I might make exemptions for those with a history of trustworthiness...

Ultimately, this was a ploy to get people to see it again. :)

Guess I'm not your friend anymore Josh. =/

I knew this was a danger of ultimatims... *sigh*

But Serenity isn't out here yet. :(

You'll be back here in a week, right? You still have time. :)

You can have an extension. :)

Ack! I don't know if I still have my stub, either. But you DO know that I already knew about that guy...and the other guy, of course. Typical Joss Whedon. :rolleyes:

I didn't know, but I also didn't go to the May prescreenings. I wasn't aware... not to say I wasn't sentient.

I've seen it twice now. I'd really like another movie, and I want people to see it alot. They need $50 mil domesitcally and/or $80 mil internationally to warrant a sequel.

I thought there was already a three movie contract?

I haven't heard anything about that. If you find something like that, let me know, but I thought they were on a trial run here.

Randomly googled link, I'm sure it would be easy to find a more official source with a bit more investigating.


But...now I have just learned that there's a comic book. /me grins and pulls out pocketbook

"option to do 3", not committment.

Joss info on firefly.net or browncoats.com or one of the fan sites said 50mil domestic, 80mil intl, or no sequel. The production costs were like $39mil.

I was hoping it'd have a trickle of $$, but aparently it's already dropped to #8.

I've gone three times, but I can't justify buying large blocks of tickets just to help ensure another installment.
