Serenity in <2000 Words, by ronswartz. I should not need to say spoilery!1!1! at all, let alone in bold with extraneous numerals, but say it I do.

I snickered a lot. (Link snurched from milady1844)


ETA: Watching closing credits for Grosse Pointe Blank, which, yes, I'm seeing for the first time, shut up.

So... did John Cusack hire his entire family for this movie, or just the ones I'm going to Hell for 'shipping him with nearest and dearest to his heart?

Also, Mr. Trick is in this film. Huh.

I got a lot of Funny Looks, and couldn't even read the best parts out loud for fear of spoiling people.

But I did lose a lung out my nose. I will have to read that again sometime.

I know - I so want to make jokes about it in the comments, but half the taglines in it are spoilery in some way, shape or form.

Thanks for the link. I especially liked the bit where Mal says, 'You got some splaining to do' *g*

Bwaahaaa. Thanks for the link. :-)

You now only have 37 watchings of Grosse Pointe Blank left before it creeps into your skull.

The entire Cusack family was there. I think some people changed their name to Cusack, just to be in the film.

And the really sad part? My best friend and I have been wandering around going "Ten YEARS Man! Ten YEARS!" for almost 10 years now.

Which is about how long since my best friend and I graduated from college together.

OLD! I'm old! Wah.

GPB came out the week I graduated from college. I was still in Gainesville, kicking around and packing.

I saw the movie four times that week.

I'm old too :)

Not just Mr. Trick -- also, Ken/Richard/Dobson aka Carlos Jacott, Mr. hat trick, playing a guy named, "Ken". Bwahahahahahaha.


2005-10-11 04:12 pm (UTC) (Link)

D00d! The sad thing is that I didn't even twig to the hat trick, let alone the GPB appearance, though now I know which characters he played, I can picture that it's the same person.


2005-10-11 04:18 pm (UTC) (Link)

So, now that you know it is the same person, which of the three characters do you think he played best/most evilly? Which of the three is his signature Whedon role, in your opinion?


2005-10-11 04:36 pm (UTC) (Link)

I think Richard wins, not necessarily as most evil (that'd be Ken) but as most memorable. Granted this is because it's the last Doyle-centered episode before his death.


2005-10-11 04:42 pm (UTC) (Link)

Ken is definitely the most evil, but he is also more one-dimensional -- I never really understood his motivations. So I think I may agree -- Richard is memorable for being a more complex character, and really having some funny lines to boot. As for the Firefly character, I think Dobson actually gets more interesting in the Serenity comic books than he is on-screen.

Ahhhh, Doyle.

So freakyweird! I was just saying last night that I really wanted to watch GPB again. ("Let My Love Open the Door" came on the iPod.) John C. is SO FREAKING ADORABLE! And Joan, too.

I can only guess the family gets on really well together. Because me hiring *my* entire family to work with me? *So* not happening, ever!


2005-10-11 04:16 pm (UTC) (Link)

Ditto. Major, major ditto. *shudder*


2005-10-11 02:40 pm (UTC) (Link)

Hee! Thanks for that link.

"Listen... Seargent Pepper..." "You get dental with that?" "I killed the president of Paraguay with a fork. How've you been?"

Hee. I love that movie to pieces. I also love Joan & John to pieces. Both of 'em are the best evar. Joan is probably the main reason I've watched In & Out as many times as I have. ;)

*follows link*


2005-10-11 04:15 pm (UTC) (Link)

I love Joan. Which is why it's deeply scary that my first comment on seeing the film -- before Debi even appears, though I ended up liking her was "Ok, obviously John Cusack is seriously invested in me going to Hell, since this movie contains the requisite Awesome Girl Friday Character That I'm Destined To Want To Ship With The Male Lead More Than I Do The Female Lead, and THEY CAST HIS SISTER IN THE ROLE.


2005-10-11 09:03 pm (UTC) (Link)

There is only one feasible conclusion. John Cusack is out to get you.

Re: Girl Friday - what TV are you watching these days? Call it my need-to-know. It may warrant a post of its own, you know. *eyes you*


2005-10-11 09:42 pm (UTC) (Link)

Ok, but it's a pretty long list.



2005-10-11 09:44 pm (UTC) (Link)

And now that the punchline's out of the way, lemme qualify that with: I actually tape Bones too, just haven't yet watched the last couple eps, but it really takes something important/good/special to get me to watch tv that's not on dvd these days, because my PC is upstairs, and the tv is downstairs. I can't be online and watch tv at the same time.


2005-10-11 09:52 pm (UTC) (Link)

Hee. Fair enough. Me, I love the House and the Veronica Mars in addition to the Supernatural. Also, I am now and again watching Smallville, because JM is on it and I think this means they now have on that show the best collection of World's Prettiest Lips. Because Jensen Ackles was on it last season, and lemme just tell you: Lex, Clark and Jason in teh same room, with FIGHTING? Muh nuh guh.

In conclusion: DEAN!
