Movie: Serenity


Director: Joss Whedon

Ok, this is the movie of Firefly, originally deemed the conclusion, till the rumor mill started talking about several more being discussed.

I thought this movie was fantastic. It helped to close some holes in the original story, but the only big thing about it that I really didn't care for was that they ditched all the old-style firearms for more modern ones. How many times did we see a fully-automatic weapon in the TV series, versus lever-action, revolvers, or pump-action weapons...Vera aside. The movie's use of camera was dead on to the original show's usage. I liked the way they used the same CG as before, and they kept the "no sound in space" detail well and alive (I'd heard they were going to add effects to help appease the masses).

I think my opinion may be skewed consdering I was a fierce fan of the TV series.

Out of five stars, I give this movie 4 or 4.5
