Watching the Joss Whedon movie made me elated in ways I haven't felt since the heights of Buffy and Angel. But it also makes me sad that I'm not regularly exposed to that humor and style any more. The movie was incredible. I am very happy with the results
Though, there was one thing of note. I had a hard time viewing the assassin as evil. That comes from the fact that I heard a story from one of the people I went to comiccon with who had been at a picnic with the actor and his wife and had overheard him being told "well you need to go take care of your daughter." It was kinda hard to see him as the bad ass alpha male after hearing that.
