Forget Star Wars…

I can’t believe I beat Kaveman to this one: The Serenity Trailer is out!!

Of course they make the movie look like any other big Sci-Fi blockbuster but we all know how misleading trailers can be, so I’m optimistic that under all the effects it will be the same quirky/funny/deep Joss Whedon mix we all know and love :)

  1. Hiya Birdlady, we are both on at the same time!

    And you have figured out how to make links, clever you… I fell shame… no, wait, she’s a grap[hic designer, of COURSE Bird Lady would have making links all figured out!

  2. It’s trying to force me to install iTunes before I can watch the trailer. We are not amused….

  3. No, you just need to install QuickTime…

  4. But…but…we already have quicktime….

  5. Anyone who doesn’t know that you two live a stone’s throw from each other might not appreciate just how sad that little exchange was… :-)

    And Homewrecker, I dunno how to say this, but…um…you don’t need to be a graphic designer to figure out the ‘link’ button… :-)

  6. OK, my favourite bit of the trailer:

    Wash: This is going to get pretty interesting.
    Mal: Define “interesting”.
    Wash: “Oh God, oh God, we’re all gonna die?”

    I’m still laughing while I’m typing it, too… :-)

  7. what??? I’m supposed to run down the road, knock on the door and say “you have to install quicktime”?.

  8. No, I’m saying you could yell out your window! :-)

    Although, truth to tell, I’m not sure which one would be funnier…

  9. Birdlady can’t yell out her window, her voice would be drowned out by buses, poor girl.

    Well apparently, Quicktime 6 was bundled with iTunes, and we had an older version of Quicktime, I guess, so we went through the entire boring download before we could see the trailer, and it took far longer than necessary… still worth it, though!

    PS Kaveman, I was trying to salvage what’s left of my damaged pride after Kamelot’s roasting in the Hitchhiker comments, but no, apparently you just want to rub my face in my technological ineptitude…

  10. Hey Birdlady, what happened to your avatar? ’tis no longer red-breated.

    Umm… whoops… OK boys, keep the rude comments to a minimum pleeze…

  11. I don’t have speakers on my computer :(

  12. C’mon, Homewrecker, you know I’m not going to pass up an opportunity for mockery!

    Now about that red breast… :-)

  13. yay for headphones!

  14. QuickTime suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuucks.

    What’s this movie all about?

  15. It’s Firefly, man! You can’t take the sky from me!

    BTW, QuickTime is actually pretty good tech, but the player sucks…someone needs to tell Apple that movies are much more immersive when you can switch into full-screen mode.
