    Chewy was also in "Dirty Pretty Things" with Audrey Tatou.

    the only thing i don't really like about the Firefly universe is the Ravers (Reevers? i forget) are supposed to be these wild psychotic animalistic creatures yet they still have the skill and discipline to pilot spacecraft [​IMG]

    Well, the spacecrafts are probably flesh free...reducing any risk of being distracted while flying [​IMG]

    Good point Malcolm. As much as I love Chewbacca, he wasn't exactly a civilized creature, but co-piloted the Millennium Falcon, fastest ship in the Galaxy!

    I've always assumed that the Reevers get into a shitload of accidents, kill themselves a lot in general, and only survive through sheer numbers.

    I can't recommend this movie enough. He may not be as cool in some of those other movies but THIS movie he screams cool. Not in an over-the-top way, but he holds the screen so well, it is very impressive. Very cool story, too, of London immigrant community and what they sometimes have to do to survive. Check it out.

    The Chewy movie you're thinking of "Kinky Boots." It was in theatres last spring, coming to DVD in September. I haven't seen it yet, but from the clips I've seen, it definitely looks like a *very* different role for him....

    Haven't seen "Dirty Pretty Things" yet, but have heard it's very good. Ditto "The Inside Man," which is coming out Tuesday.

    I think the commodant of Auschwitz thought he was doing a "greater good." Hitler definitely did.
    Anyway, now that the Operative has lost his faith in the Alliance, would he turn to the "Browncoat" side of the fight, bringing his ruthless tactics with him.

    From IGN FilmForce: "In spite of a groundswell of grassroots support amongst its fans, "Serenity" has failed to revive the science fiction-western Firefly franchise. Even with DVD sales, the movie reportedly failed to recoup its $40 million budget. And as anyone who's seen the film knows, the exit of certain characters and the resolution of key storylines makes it difficult — or impossible — to recapture the chemistry of the excellent-but-short-lived series.

    Joss Whedon himself, creator of both the TV show and the movie, broke the news to the Whedonesque.com website. He says, "There's no sequel, no secret project regarding Serenity or some such and I'm not even sure how anyone thought there was talk there."

    "I've seen [Firefly actors] Nathan and Tim (and Summer and Alan) recently because they're my friends because I'm so, yeah, awesome. So let's put that to bed and smother it with a pillow."

    That wasn't the full story, Whedon fully elaborated on Whedonesque:

    It's not suprising to me that there are no plans to revisit this franchise.
    A sci-fi film series with an overt western theme is a hard sell.
    Too hard apparantly.

    It's not. Serenity was one of the best movies I saw last year, but the fanboys wishful thinking and number inflation has gotten out of hand. I have never seen such a an attempt to spin box office numbers before. The harsh reality of this release's underperformance was always there for those who wanted to see it.
    But Tino, I know you've caught some flak earlier in this thread for it, but you just seem way too happy about this. Not really sure what you gain from it.

    It was my #2 film. I loved it. Not surprised there's no sequel. Perhaps a straight to video version [​IMG]
