Movie night...

Ah... today was cool. Buffy in syndication, Neverwhere on video, and Iron Monkey at the movie theatre. For the record

a)Its hard to believe that a show with such a seemingly goofy plot can be so damn entertaining and intelligent. Joss Whedon is just damn cool.

b)Despite (or perhaps because of) not having significant special effects, the Neverwhere miniseries was very cool. Its one of maybe 2 or 3 movie/book adaptations that I think is actually at least as entertaining as the book. They each have their own strengths, but I thoroughly enjoyed the miniseries. If you ever get a chance, you really must see it.

c)Iron Monkey = WOW! It might not appeal to everyone, but if you can appreciate a good chinese/hong-kong movie, it will not disappoint. The action scenes are amazing, and the sappier/humorous parts are not overdone, so its actually a very enjoyable movie to watch. If nothing else, I think this is movie would be a great way to introduce someone to the whole hong kong action movie genre (esp considering how many of the notable movies of this type revolve around Wong Fei Hong).

This was a good night.
