On Friday night Viper and I went to see the new Joss Whedon movie, Serenity, at our local cinema. It was opening night, and we had been waiting to see it since we first heard a movie was in the works. The film is based on Whedon’s TV series Firefly. The series was cancelled (by Fox) without even airing all the episodes, but developed a strong following after the DVD release. Firefly has been described as a sort of “space western,” and that does give you an idea of what it’s like.
We really loved the film, as did Viper’s two friends who were not familiar with the TV series. It also got two “Thumbs Up” from Ebert and Roeper, so don’t miss it.
