FireflyFirefly - "Serenity" Movie - Theforce.net Review
Sunday 9 October 2005, by Webmaster
Bear with me as I put my Star Wars hat on backward for a few minutes and suggest you go see Serenity this weekend...
Universal Studios has taken an unusual step with Serenity the movie and put the entire first nine minutes of the movie online.
There aren’t many cowboys in space with humor thrown in for fun like this that come along. Which is to say, if you liked Star Wars, and even if you never watched the ill-fated series Firefly, you should take in Serenity this weekend. I saw the movie and immediately watched the series on DVD, then saw it again. It was great fun all around and I highly recommend it.
Note: Serenity was created, written and directed by Joss Whedon, of Buffy and Angel fame. Now, I never watched Buffy or Angel, though I sure know a lot of people who did, so if you didn’t either, don’t let that put you off the movie.
I bet if you watch it, you’ll go rent or buy Firefly on DVD right away. The movie is great, but there’s much in the TV show you’ll want to learn as well.
