Dreadful Nonsense

"I've read your blog. it's really funny. you should write a column." - Jon Ronson


I have never been so excited as I was during the first twenty minutes of this film. I was so happy I could cry, I kept inadvertently making squealing noises when near-misses occurred, and He Who Only... later told me that during fight scenes I was waving my hands around again, as if trying to push the bad guys away from the good guys. During the scarier moments (and no one does proper scary like El Whedon) I realised I was cutting off the circulation in He Who Only...'s hand.

It was so superb. Although every time I think about it (and I spent most of last night thinking about it, hence the over-tiredness of today), just one scene keeps coming back to me over and over again. In the interests of good, right thinking people like Anna (Hello Anna!) I'm not going to put up any spoilers whatsoever in this post, and a later post today will be written in white type so that if you want to read it, you can do so by highlighting it, and if you want to avoid it, you can do so by not highlighting it. See how good I am?

If anyone sees it over the next few weeks, please email me. I am absolutely DESPERATE to talk about every tiny detail.
