I remember watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer for a few seasons back when it first aired on the WB. For whatever reason I didn’t feel invested enough to keep watching. It wasn’t until years later that my local pusher at Capital Comics told me that I needed to watch Firefly. After Jay harassed me about it a few hundred times I broke down and bought the dvd.
I don’t think I have ever been as devastated after watching a show with the knowledge that I would never see more of it than I was after watching Firefly. I wanted it more than I wanted more seasons of Freaks and Geeks, The Babylon 5 spinoff Crusade, Twin Peaks, or Deadwood. Needless to say I went back and rewatched Buffy and Angel and loved them both (It didn’t fill the hole in my heart left by Fox but it was a start). I’ve come to learn that if Joss Whedon’s name is on something it is worth checking out. If he decided to remake Hee Haw I would watch it. Thankfully that hasn’t happen yet so I will have to settle for Much Ado About Nothing.
Release Date: June, 14th 2013

Shakespeare's classic comedy is given a contemporary spin in Joss Whedon's film, "Much Ado About Nothing". Shot in just 12 days (and using the original text), the story of sparring lovers Beatrice and Benedick offers a dark, sexy and occasionally absurd view of the intricate game that is love.

We can vote on a place to meet up afterwards for some food and a causal discussion closer to the release date.
I am going to try and do a Let's Go to the Movies meetup every so often. I think it will be a nice change of pace to go to a theater to see a film every once in a while. If you would like to schedule a Let's Go to the Movies meetup click Suggest a New Meetup at the top of the homepage or you can email me a suggestion.
This is a group that involves watching a movie and discussing said movie afterwards. What kind of movies do you ask? It can be any genre. My main criterion is that the film can carry a discussion. I might have themes for certain months like Overlooked Films, French Crime Films, Great Movies with Misleading Names or Six Degrees of separation theme with a certain actor or director.
