My viewing of Serenity tonight. Tuesday Oct 11th *Spoilers!*
Tuesday, October 11, 2005

Okay, well I wanted to post about this viewing because I had high hopes for it and boy did they pay off.

It was my 8th time seeing Serenity. And I don't think I could ever get tired of it.

I saw it at 2 previews before it came out.

On Friday, opening night, I went twice in a row, to my local cineworld. There were about 20 people in there each time. But hey they all laughed and gasped in all the right places!

I wasn't too bothered. Friday isn't a big night for cinema-goers here. Its Tuesday, actually. Tuesday is bargain day. Its when all movies are half price. Thats when they take their most money. So I was looking forward to Tuesday.

Anyway I went again on Sunday, and there were a lot more people. More than I'd expect for a Sunday night. (I also saw it Saturday and Monday, but those were at different theatres, in different towns.)

So, I went to see it tonight. I was hoping it would be packed. We had been #1 on the weekend, its the busiest night. And hopefully, word of mouth from some people who saw it over the weekend had spread.

I got in there and it was packed! More packed than I'd ever seen the cinema! And they all laughed really hard, and a lot! And when they're laughing that much, and everyone else is laughing, you know you're having a damn good time.

And the reaction to Wash's death...there was of course the gasps, and the silence, but I heard other things. The lady in front of me went "Oh, no!" and some guy behind me went "What?!" and some other girl was like "NO!".

These people loved this film. And these were people of all ages.

GO Serenity!

Well, it's certainly been quiet afterwards... but maybe I've been to concentrated on the *moment* to notice the gasps...

Really Rel? Every single time I've gone theres always been a resident gasp followed by silence.

It's always good when the movie gets the audience responses it should do. I;ve yet to hear any real death-moment-gasps, though.
