Joss Whedon directed this one and, honestly, I'm not sure how big a fan I am of Whedon's. He filled this low-budget production with his band of brothers / familiar Whedon-land actors. My only true excitement is to see Nathan Fillion on the big screen. I have quite a crush on Richard Castle; however, here Fillion has been cast in a smaller role, likely and essentially reducing him to comic relief and scene-stealing. Familiar territory to Fillion, but I believe he is capable of so much more. (See also: what great scenes he has performed in this season's rejuvenating Castle episodes.)
All this excitement has motivated me to do something I've pondered for a while. I have changed my blog's tagline. What do you think? "To most it's nothing but to me it's life." Get it? To most it's nothing because the play which inspired my blog-pun is called Much Ado About Nothing, haha. Also, Shakespeare, when penning this little story played upon the word "noting" (pronounced "nothing" but meaning idle gossip and meaningless diatribe). That's kind of most scholars' ideas of Much Ado...it's a light-hearted romantic comedy. You can make a big deal of its themes and character development. It really is in there. But it was more for enjoyment and entertainment. Like my blog!
I am thinking I'll conjure up my first blog giveaway in celebration of this film's release. Details to come at a later date. But make sure you are following me on Bloglovin' or some other feed because you do not want to miss a moment!
