On year 2002, a little odd sci-fi show began showing on Fox… and as all worthy Fox shows, it got canceled. Sadly, I never saw this show when it was on the air because it was not showing in Peru in 2002, and when I got to Canada, it was already out of the air. I remember that when I returned to Lima, I saw a couple of commercials on tv, but never made anything out of it.

fireflyIt was not until my friend Nathan dragged me to the movies to watch Serenity… well, he didn’t drag me because I was more than willing to watch films, LOL’ – so when I watched the film, I was WOWed with it. And so… my friend lend me his pirated DVDs. HAHAHA. The DVD set was expensive back in the day, so I watched the whole show in less than a week and have been totally addicted to it. The same story can be told for a whole bunch of classmates, as the day arrived when the DVD set dropped in price thanks to a sale at HMV, and ALL of us went and bought it. Seriously, it’s like 6 of us went one day without knowing we did and bought the set. Like synchronized-buying.

The show is so unique that my sci-fi-fantasy-fiction-hating of a mother LOVED watching it. If you mention Lord of the Rings to my mother, she will tell you it’s well made… or Star Wars, she will tell you the story when she fell asleep during the film, a story similar to the one she will tell you when she watched Matrix. So my mother HATES this type of shows, but she LOVES Firefly – That’s how GOOD this show is… or was.

The show is set in the futuristic future (2517, to be exact), and we are screwed. LOL’ Earth is just the Earth that was, thus we were forced to search for somewhere else to live namely other planets and moons. Western culture has mashed up with Eastern culture, thus giving us great moments when our characters swear in unintelligible Chinese. Moreover, there is also The Alliance, which is very much like the Empire in Star Wars… and we have “the space cowboys”. The crew of our flying Firefly vessel, namely Serenity… including one of my favorite characters, Captain Mal Reynolds, ass-kicking 2nd in command Zoe, outrageous Wash the pilot, dense and gun lover Jayne, the sex-hungry mechanic Kaylee, love-daft Simon the doctor, crazy lunatic River mystery, and the sexy ‘companion’ Inara.

You’ll love the characters, you’ll love their bad moments, you’ll love their good moments. It’s not about the western, it’s not about the sci-fi, it’s about the people and their relations. I LUV it. I love the jokes, I love the mixing of Chinese and English… the gorram GORRAM! xD So you better WATCH it NOW, GORRAM it!

Just returned from watching The Incredible Hulk! Short review is that I enjoyed it a lot… maybe not as much as I did when watching Iron Man, even though I’m a fan of neither of them. LOL First things first, I did like Ang Lee’s version of The Hulk, and I thought Eric Bana was quite endearing on his Green Bana version. But I guess THAT’s not the point of Hulk, is it?

Just got back from watching a screening of the newest Narnia flick, and let me tell you, I enjoyed watching The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe, but this one is far more better than that. Sure, purist might be a little ticked off by switching lines from characters to characters, but I’m telling you that I enjoyed Caspian a whole lot more.

Just got back from a Press screen for Speed Racer (aka, Meteoro, in Spanish). What can I say? Words like FLASHBACKS, MOTION BLUR, and COLOR EXPLOSION come to mind. The Wachowski brothers have managed to Japanese-ized or should I say Asian-ized an English speaking film about Japan’s Mahha GoGoGo. I say Asian-ized because they managed to get Japan (Togo Igawa), Korea (Bi, Rain), and China (Yu Nan) to play family… LOL

But that’s a nitpick from me~~~ Let’s get to business, SPOILER ALERT! (maybe) Continue Reading…

Wonderfalls - Shows You Shoul\'ve Watched When They Were on the AirNot long ago, I got the opportunity to watch Wonderfalls. Some of the words that come to mind are “Brilliant!” or “Fudge you, Fox,” and “Buh-buh-buh buh-bye.” In these short couple of weeks, I have fallen in love with the now-canceled-Fox-show.

What’s the show about? It’s about Jaye Tyler. Now, if you LOVED watching Juno being Juno with all her Junoness, you’ll love Jaye because Jaye is the quintessential Juno. Many-a-times people find themselves in the extremes of loving/hating the puns, and the worldplay… but if you love it, you’ll enjoy Wonderfalls.

Jaye is a 24-year-old graduate from Brown University with a Psychology Degree, yet she finds herself over-educated and in a crappy job in a souvenir shop on the American side of Niagara Falls. She also finds herself working under the supervision of a mouth-breather who is still in high school… when one day inanimate objects shaped in the form of animals begin talking to her. Yes, Jaye is a crazy person… or maybe not?

Jaye, very much a la Joan of Arc, begins listening to these voices that tell her to do stuff in very cryptic messages, which often results in her getting into trouble or even helping people! She’s also joined by her not-not-a-sister (double negative there), her over-achiever-yet-living-at-home brother, her neurotic but caring mother, her nervous dad… Mahandra, her 1/8 Indian (native American) black woman friend, a cute-yet-heart-broken bartender, and a whole bunch of other funky and quirky characters that will surely make you snort throughout the 13 episodes.
