Last night, I attended a screening of the new movie Serenity. I have to agree with Wayan in DC that you should wait for the DVD, but I will also say you should see the film. This film will be a cult classic in the near future even beyond the fans of the original tv show.

The film is based on Joss Whedon’s Firefly tv series. I vaguely remember the show as I think my younger brother used to watch it. I hear true fans really enjoy the film, so that could be something to consider before the movie.

I have not seriously laughed so hard in my life in while. The film was so tongue-in-cheek bad, so full of cliches that you enjoyed the fun. I even caught myself saying “I’d rent this” and then thinking, no actually I’d probably own it for the easy access to laughs. There are some serious moments that seem a tad contrived. Overall, a rousing good time.

PS. I saw this film at a bloggers screening in Atlanta. In exchange for seeing the film, you are suppose to blog about it. (Good marketing tool) So anyone ever done this in Detroit, because I haven’t heard of this there yet….

    Putting all the hokey-ness aside, the Serenity website is REALLY REALLY well-put together.

    Perhaps the writing/direction was subject to the typical destruction caused by “too-many cooks in the kitchen.”

    That’s why I stick to humor pieces – like “Curb your Enthusiasm” (by far the best you can find) – (find it on NETFLIX).
