(SPOILER) White Noise: The Light--Firefly reference left in! A review at the White Noise fan site points out the reference. Also for myspacers, Nathan has a new blog up. "Station Identification."

Remember reading a long time ago about how thrilled Nathan was that his next movie "White Noise: The Light" had a Firefly reference in it. Well, according to a UK Browncoat, it is still in there. UK Theater Release date: Friday 01/05/2007

This comment was posted on Nathan Fillion's myspace page.

and glad to se the Firefly reference was left in.


Oh and she loved the movie and is going to see it again on Sunday to see what she missed.

I was clearly the only Browncoat in the cinema because I snorted at the reference and everybody just glared at me! Boo!
RachVG,

So how full was the cinema? Did people seem to like the movie?
It wasn't too full, maybe 20 people in one of the biggest screens, but it was before 5pm so that's not too bad. It was more people than I saw at a similar time of screening of Serenity on opening day.

I couldn't really tell what people were thinking - I had every intention of eavesdropping on the way out but it finished 10 minutes before my next bus and I would have had to wait for an hour, so I ran down the street instead!
I'm not going to see this movie (not my genre of preference.) Would someone please describe the Firefly reference in a spoiler tag?
Sure! Basically:


I like how the personality test on the page says he's kaylee
Is there a direct link to the comment as it'll no doubt disappear of that MySpace site very quickly.

Otherwise there won't be much point having this Whedonesque blog entry.

Blog entries don't disappear entirely. I think you just need to click on "View All Blog Entries" and scroll down.

Oh sorry, but those are kept as well. Click on "View All" just below "Nathan Fillion's Friends Comments".
Well to make it permanent, I switched the URL to the White Noise fan site. So everything is good.
OK, this is all well and good, but can somebody tell me WHAT THE (insert chinese profanity) is ZOMBOCOM??
Why, Zombo.com is the answer to all your questions, of course, VerseRoamer! ;-)

Also, I'm sure this goes without saying, but would our kind UK friends let us know on Monday how the box office earnings for White Noise 2 came out? Thanks! :-)
billz, figures normally become official here on Tuesday. I'll let you know how it does.

I just got back from seeing it at my local Odeon. 'bout 20 people there, didn't get much reaction, although the couple behind me jumped a few times. It was wonderful seeing Nathan and freakin' Starbuck together on the big screen at my local cinema, it has to be said.
ZOMBO.COM WELcome to zombo.com, welCOME to zombo.com... WELCOME to zombo.com....

*shakes out of it* Man how disturbing. Oh and I loved his rant about those damn logos on the stations running throughout the bloody program. I don't have any cable so I don't have to deal with it. And I can't afford it...
Thanks, gossi!
Zombo.com actually DOES have a purpose(besides that hypnotizing voice that makes you want to go around saying "The unatable is unkown at Zombo.com" in an overly excitable voice to everyone you meet). If you click on the Zombo Tees inbetween the messages, you get sent to a store where you can by Zombo.com t-shirts at.

hehe

Remember, Anything is possible at Zombo.com

Yeah, probably the right thing to change the link to, Simon, because Kev, as thrilling as it was to me, I doubt all the Whedonesquers really need to hear about my first driving lesson. ;)
Maddy/Bauer aka hockey_bauer has written an excellent and very honest, detailed, spoileriffic review on her MySpace blog (don't know if it's protected for viewing by friends-only, so the link is to her main page). Her score for WN2: 1.5 out of 5, but higher marks for the acting.
I doubt all the Whedonesquers really need to hear about my first driving lesson.

I dunno, I thought it was quite entertaining!
I loved the Firefly reference! I think I got my 5 worth from that alone (although I was the only one to laugh!) In my opinion the film isn't a classic - although I did enjoy seeing Nathan on the big screen.

I didn't think it was all that bad with a few jumps (though a lot of 'em were telegraphed/predictable), decent acting from all the main players and some scenes that resonated. That said, the plot was pretty nonsensical and the underlying mesage wasn't one i've much time for (I read it as ). That said, between Katee Sackhoff, Nathan Fillion and Teryl Rothery it was like a Firefly/BSG/Stargate love-in and three of my favourite fictional 'verses colliding can't be all bad.

Plus, dialling it down to caveman (cos it's where I live most of the time anyway) Ms. Sackhoff looked absolutely smokin' hot (and it was a bit of a novelty to see her wearing girl clothes and stuff ;).

(also for the super-SG1 nerds, the asylum guard played young General Hammond in the time-travel episode '1969'. Obviously I didn't notice him myself, not being a maniac or anything. Nope, it was, err, the real sci-fi geek in the row behind me that mentioned it. Yeah, that's it, definitely. Ahem ;)
So has anybody seen more than 20 people in the theater?
Sadly not, big screen too so it felt pretty empty (though it was a morning showing so not necessarily indicative).
There were 40 or so people in the cinema - quite good considering it was the earlier showing.
