In Passing...Serenity and floppies

Finally, Joss Whedon's Serenity made its debut in theaters today amid a buzz of great reviews. I saw a matinee because I just couldn't wait. I don't want to say too much about the movie, but God, is it awesome. Whether you're a fan of the show or not, you miss this, you miss out.

Okay, so comics I've read so far this week...
Ultimate Spider-man #83 - The "Warriors" storyline continues with the likes of Black Cat, Elektra, Iron Fist and Moon Knight making appearances, as well as more teen angst with MJ. I really like the direction that Bendis and Bagley are taking this in - great ending!

Kitty Pryde: Shadow and Flame #4 - Now, Kitty Pryde prejudices aside, this is one damn good comic mini-series. I don't remember an X-Men spin-off mini (in recent history) that has actually gotten a decent treatment, but this one breaks the streak.

New Avengers #11 - Kicking off a new story arc, we are finally introduced to Ronin, the mystery character who has appeared from the cover of the first issue (Marvel's marketing is positively ridiculous). Another great issue. There is just something really cool and fun about the villains who appear in this issue (and one female villain in particular).

I've played plenty of X-Men Legends 2 since I last posted about it (I'm about twelve hours into it), and have fought the likes of Lady Deathstrike, Deadpool, Garrok, Sauron, Omega Red, Abyss and Colossus' brother Mikhail. And I've interacted with Ka-Zar, Shanna the She-Devil, Pyro, the Blob, Angel, Vindicator and Guardian. I moved on from Genosha to the Savage Land to the Weapon X facility. It's fun, but I can really only play a few hours at a time before the fighting gets sort of tedious. It's a fun, twisty plot though. Posted by Picasa
