Finally, I’ve managed to see Serenity. I hadn’t seen it until now because I don’t like going to the theaters by myself, and I have been restricted to public transportation ever since coming out here (which makes getting to a theater hard), but tonight I finally called up Rick and had him pick me up and bring me to a theater to see Serenity. I had to do it now because it’s no longer in theaters starting friday, and there was no way I was going to miss seeing the movie.
Anyway, it was great. All the characters from Firefly we know and love, although I wish it actually resolved the mysteries surrounding Shepherd Book, and I really wish that something else hadn’t happened (but for sake of spoilers I won’t say what). The visuals were amazing, and the character development was just as in-depth as it was in Firefly. Basically, it’s a must-see movie for any Firefly fan, and even for people who haven’t seen Firefly but simply like a good Sci-Fi movie. Unfortunately, as it’s going out of theaters, if you haven’t seen it yet you’ll probably have to wait for the DVD.

Last week my older brother came home for a few days (to attend a friend’s wedding) and finally gave me my birthday present (only almost 6 months late). It turned out to be the DVD boxed set of Firefly, a TV series created by Joss Wheadon (creator of Buffy and Angel) and basis for the movie Serenity. I’d heard great things about this series, but had never seen it.
On saturday, I ended up going to bed really early (around 7:30 PM, dunno why I was so tired) and slept for something like 14 hours). Needless to say, I wasn’t tired at all that night, so I started watching Firefly with my brother David. After 7 episodes (each one is about 45 minutes long) he went to bed, but I still wasn’t tired. I also knew that since I had work at 12:30 PM today, if I went to bed at the time I knew I would finally be able to fall asleep, I wouldn’t be able to get up for work today, so I continued watching Firefly.
I ended up watching all 14 episodes, plus most of the extra features. The entire Firefly series. In one sitting. It was fantastic. Firefly is really amazing - it is truly a great loss for everyone that Fox mismanaged the series so badly (and cancelled it). I take solace in the fact that I still have the movie Serenity to look forward to.
If you haven’t seen Firefly yet, I highly recommend seeing it as soon as possible.
