That's all that went through my head when the credits rolled at the end of the movie. It was all the coherent thought I was capable of. I won't post any spoilers, but it was... surprising. And fun. And exciting. And scary as hell. I laughed, I cried, I nearly peed my pants.
Definitely the best film I've seen all year. I mean, it looked like it was going to be pretty good, and I had hopes, but I had no idea it was going to be this good. Completely puts to shame every single major action-adventure blockbuster that's come out this summer.
It's like, if you took all the best elements of the original Star Wars trilogy (minus the wooden acting and lame dialogue) and mixed them with a healthy dose of Buffy's trademark humor and heart (minus the absurd plot holes and awkward action sequences). It sounds like it might be a little derivative, and maybe it is, but Joss does such a great job of bringing all the elements together in a fresh and compelling story that I don't even mind. For the first time in years, I remember how I felt back when I first fell in love with Han Solo.
