Movies Online review Slither. "Without a doubt, Slither is the most entertaining movie I've seen this year." Horror Channel say "(the director) is just taking bits and pieces of his favorite films and giving them a fresh spin and having a blast doing it". Cinema Blend say "Look for a mass Browncoat suicide after the debut of Slither."

Looks like it's going to be pretty damn good. I've got to check it out now after reading that review.
Well that's good news. Is this going to be a difficult movie to find in the theaters?
What he doesn't mention is that the only other movie he's seen this year is 'Stealth' on DVD ;).

war_machine, normally if you look towards the front of the theatre you'll find the film on the big flickery screen ;).

Been saying it for a while now but 'Slither' sounds like it's a little corker. Definitely going to see it and if it's half as good as 'Shaun of the Dead' then, err, it'll be twice as good as a film only a quarter the standard. Or something.
Sounds fun.

"Mass Browncoat suicide--" my Aunt Fanny. :-p

I hope it does give Nathan's career a kick. Hard to imagine him not wanting to do more 'verse regardless of his success, so I can afford to be magnanimous.
The person from Cinema-blend does not get it at all. Where is the expectation of jealousy coming from? All along Browncoats have been suggesting that one way a sequel might get made is if one of the Firefly cast makes it really big, and loves their character enough to help push for it.
Fillian? Are fact checkers out of vogue these days?
Why would Nathan's (well deserved) success cause Browncoats to commit suicide enmasse? *sigh* They just don't get us at all.
People picking on minorities? It's so very human.

As a million people (well, 2 -- something is making me exaggerate...) have said before - Nathan The Big Movie Star is not a bad thing.

Cause like any fandom, we apparently have no sense of humour and are incredibly insular.
Wait, you mean I should put the suicide kit away Simon? I spent four pound on that McDonalds McFat meal, you know!
I thought it was the new McBacon on Lardtoast, gossi.

I think its comparing us to a religious cult - wouldn't be the first time.
I was thought it was, you know, a joke.
gossi, put the burger down. Step away from the burger. The Kool-aid is probably fine though.

Definitely hit the Browncoat nail on the head. I hate Nathan for his success and soft hands. Forget suicide, if any of the so-called actors are even vaguely successful it's war. Really. I'm gonna find some small country and war them right to the brink of actually noticing me.

In fairness, it does have a 'Seriously though...' afterwards, reckon they're just kidding (and achieving major hits from us to boot), though I have a bridge picked out if not, just in case (seems slightly more spectacular than car exhaust).
Can't we go all X-Files and go on a bridge with Scully?

Please? She's really hot.

I don't think the review says that. I think they're saying browncoats are going to be miffed (in a big way) if Slither ends up making Nathan a star, while we would've rather have seen Serenity do just that.

Still, even that is not true. We'd love for Nathan to become a huge star (even if he decides he doesn't want to do another Serenity movie) and I don't think many people care about the movie that does it. Would we rather have seen Serenity more succesfull? Yes. Does this mean any movie featuring one of the BDHs can't be more succesfull than Serenity afterwards? No. And lets hope some of those movies are more succesfull. These actors deserve bigger hits to make them big ol' stars.

Well, I think the 'Seriously though' refers to: "What makes this one look like it might actually deliver is the cast, which does not include David Arquette. That's a good thing." And not the mass suicide thing.

Please? She's really hot.

And I understand she so wants you.
... to leave her alone and stop stalking her.
I am getting increasingly sure that Nathan is on the superstar track and will be very, very surprised if that does not redound to the Browncoats' benefit.

I've been posting about my cinema squeamishness elsewhere, and how I was going to see "Slither" anyway -- But now I find out it has (mild spoiler from one of the reviews)

Besides, she's too busy stalking me, and so if you stalk her, you'll just end up running into me, and then it will all become very, very messy indeed.
bobster - tongue in cheek. I think you'll be fine with it.

Scully is all MINE. Leave her be, peeps.
Okay, Nathan's gonna be a big movie star, make a lot of money, and possibly open the door for a Serenity sequel.

Somebody pass me the razors.

To paraphase Tweety Bird: "He don't know us vewee well, do he?"

If this person knew anything about Browncoats and just plain old fans o' Fillion and the rest of the BDHeroes, they'd know that there'll be no hatin' if Slither does well.
Hell, we want everything they do to be golden: big screen, little screen, stage, radio...whatever. Don't we?
Of course we do! : )
