Last night, at Vivienne’s place, Sarah, Viv, and I watched SERENITY – the movie which concludes the firefly series. Whoa whoa whoa. If you haven’t already seen it, don’t watch the movie without first watching the series – it won’t make much sense. That said, if you have seen the series then you will very strongly appreciate the intensity that is everything Serenity.
Mild spoilers after the break.
HOLY CRAP RIVER IS AWESOME. The Reavers? The assasin? Gaaaah!! I love the scene when the Captain gets his game face on and just glows with command. I felt that some of the hand-to-hand combat scenes were a bit contrived, and I was disappointed that we didn’t get more background with the Shepherd. The beginning felt a little slow, but they did such a great job of sewing up the loose story lines. And the final run from the planet might be the most awesome moment in movie history.
I was hoping that River might be able to use some mental force to annihilate everything. Kind of like a tsunami of mental crushing death. But, that didn’t happen. Although I wasn’t disappointed with the director’s method of her rocking the kasbah.
Bravo Joss Whedon! Bravo!
