You will not watch a finer sci-fi movie than Serenity. As a geek, I felt pressure from my peers to like the TV series, but it never took hold with me. It never felt compelling as a story, but I liked the Western meets Blade Runner synergy.
The movie, however, blew my socks off--smart and funny, with a solid plot and the best bad guy I've seen in years. It had a disappointing run at the box office, which probably killed any future for the canceled TV series, but I purchased it to sit alongside my other favorite sci-fi flicks.Posted by tat at January 28, 2006 11:03 PM
