Just a small note:
I'd intended for this post to be a quick, let me get my initial impression out before I was influenced by others. It was supposed to go up late Friday night but didn't. I'm now posting it with some additions after I've seen the movie a second time and the weekend tally has come out.

That's it, I couldn't wait till Saturday so I took the afternoon off from work and drove to the nearest theater to see XF:IWTB on Friday.

I arrived 30 minutes before the day's second showing and I was immediately distressed. I was the only one there. On one hand that meant prime seating selection but on the other hand it felt like I was the only  one enthused about the movie. I immediately began texting my former college roommate to shake a metaphorical fist in the air over the injustice of people not giving Mulder and Scully the hearty welcome back they deserve.

I finished the first draft of my Forever Knight Schanke vid. Yay me! It clocks in at 3 minutes and 20 seconds although I see it fluctuating 10-15 seconds in either direction. I cut the song down from 5 minutes 56 seconds and while I'm OK with the way the song ends I'm gonna see if I can try splicing it so that I can incorporate the song's original ending. I really don't think it'll go well but I'll give it the ol' college try.

I've almost finished my second go at the Forever Knight Nick/Nat fic from [personal profile] oxoniensis' porn battle back in January. Hopefully this time I don't leave my betas scratching their heads like I did back in February. And hey, the July porn battle is almost among us.

I was going through the print outs of all my in-the-works fic and surprise of surprises, it turns out that I wrote out a good chunk of my Journalism! Clark Smallville story but never included the additions to my computer file of the fic. What a pleasant surprise. Maybe there's hope for that fic yet.

Spoilers for season 8 of Smallville sound very promising, especially on the Clark front

Aren't they awesome? The promo comes courtesy of philater

This isn't really fandom but apparently an almost complete version of Fritz Lang's Metropolis has been found in an archive in Buenos Aires. With the exception of one scene the film is in its entirety. That's absolutely amazing and a wonderful discovery for all cinephiles.

The DVD release date for Life has been set for September 2. This sucker is totally priced to own with a SRP of $29.98 so I'm figuring a store price of around $25. Perhaps the price per episode comes out a bit high but if I enjoy this show as much as I'm anticipating who cares. Hopefully all the music remains intact but with its low SRP I have my doubts.  Hopefully they're unfounded because one of the biggest selling points for me about Life is its killer soundtrack.

The DVD release date for Smallville season 7 has been set for the following week on September 9th. I'm both excited and scared for that release. There are certain episodes that I'm very excited to see but I'm really not looking forward to the Lois/Grant story arc that pretty much went no where and has given Lois naysayers yet another reason to trash her. I understand what it's purpose was for but from what I gather from other fans the execution was quite lacking.

~~~~~~~~

The season 2 DVDs of Torchwood have also been announced for September 16. Nice cover but way out of my price range. It's the same reason why I haven't even thought about purchasing the 1st season, which I've yet to watch. I've enjoyed the show but not enough to pay that much for 13 episodes.
