Soon, all of their lives hang in the balance as they draw closer to the truth and a chilling climactic moment in London's famous Royal Albert Hall.

My Thoughts:
I don't know, but this movie was rather boring (*waiting for Jon to put me right* :tease:).
Jon will probably want to strangle me, but I prefer to watch Bill Murrey's "The Man Who Knew Too Little" any day :laugh:
I like James Stewart, but I feel his acting range is not very wide. He always seems to be playing the same character.

My Thoughts:
This is great continuation of the franchise. I personally prefer the first one over this one... but it is close. They did kind of drop the jokes so there wasn't nearly as much to laugh at... but it is a very good story. I liked that they went to the village where Mr. Miyagi was raised. Making the main fight more real then in part one where it was a tournament for points instead of a real fight. I did miss seeing Elizabeth Shue as Ali in this one... but it is understandable since they had to open it up for a new romance in Okinawa.

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

Firefly Marathon, a review by Tom


06. Our Mrs Reynolds
Writer: Joss Whedon (Writer)
Director: Vondie Curtis Hall
Cast: Nathan Fillion (Mal), Gina Torres (Zoe), Alan Tudyk (Wash), Morena Baccarin (Inara), Adam Baldwin (Jayne), Jewel Staite (Kaylee), Sean Maher (Simon), Summer Glau (River), Ron Glass (Shepherd Book), Christina Hendricks (Saffron), Benito Martinez (Boss), Erik Passoja (Bree), Bob Fimiani (Elder Gommen), Alex Stemkovsky (Bandit #1)

My favorite Firefly episode. It is just a lot of fun. Like the reaction of the crew of finding out that Mal is married. The teasing. And of course Jayne trying to trade is favorite gun for Saffron. Also Inara insistance of having hit her head to hide the fact she kissed Mal's poisoneous lips.
