Save Serenity for DVD

Tonight I saw a pre-screening of Serenity, a new movie, free just so I’d write about it. The corporate shills say I should quote some industry crap for my free swag. Yeah, and they also say that DRM (digital rights management) is good for me. Enough of that.

Serenity is a new sci-fi movie that can best be described as a cross between Unforgiven and Star Wars. With a futuristic world & space battle right out of Return of the Jedi and dialogue that would even make Kevin Costner in Dances with Wolves wince, futuristic space-folk still battled with old-school pistols, even Samurai swords, while trying to bring truth to the galaxy.

The psycho girl was fun, and there were very funny moments in the film, but for $35, the cost for two plus popcorn and drinks, I say save your dosh. A six-drink night at Wonderland will get you in her bed faster, with the DVD saved for a winter night at your place.

    What, you never watched Firefly?

    Speaking as a huge Joss Whedon fan, you’re probably more likely to like Serenity if you’re familiar with his other stuff.

    Ahh…another review by a blogger not interested in film, but only bedding the girl. Nicely done.

    Hey now, there are films worthy of the money – several of the Star Wars trilogy for example or even worth going alone to see, like Apocalypse Now.

    Just not this one.

    Jeez, you were willing to take them up on their free advanced movie but posting their one paragraph summary and website link in return is too much of a sacrifice for you? Nice ethics, Wayan.
