Let's Go to the Movies: Joss Whedon's Much Ado About Nothing

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.

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. (c) Roadside Attractions

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.

      I'm sorry you couldn't make it. It was very enjoyable. I like the Living Room Theater. Send me an email if you have any movies you think the group should see there or at another theater.

    Really want to see this film. Won't know until Monday whether or not i can get free to come. How late can I send an RSVP?

      I think till Monday 9:30. Don't worry to much about having a RSVP. It's only really an issue for the shows at the headquarters since space is limited.

    I loved firefly and the movie, and Nathan Fillion. Sounds perfect.

      I think I have only met one person who didn't like Firefly and my wife would trade me for Nathan Fillion any day.

    I had a similar Joss Whedon revelation during a visit that coincided with Snowmageddon. We were snowed in. My son said let's watch Firefly. I asked, What's that? We watched all the episodes and what? wait? This can't be! There's no more?
    I was similarly devastated. ;-)
