Serenity (2005)

I'm a fan so unfortunately you can't take this review at its face value. Serenity rocks! Go see it. You'll enjoy it. We saw it this evening at the Crossroads Cinema in Redmond with Walt, Sherri, Richard and (absent) Tracy. I'm sure Richard will take Tracy to see it later on in the week.

You want more information? Ok. It's a character-driven space western. With flawed heroes, and bad guys with one or two admirable qualities. It has funny and witty dialog, and assumes you don't need everything explained for you. It's detailed.

It's not high drama, it's good fun. It's really better if you don't know more than that, going in, I think. Of course if you're a fan and know its heritage then, like me, you already saw it this weekend.
