We saw Serenity this afternoon.

You don’t want to miss this. I’m not going to gush all over it. It deserves much more respect than that. There was a good story. There was intelligent dialouge. There were characters that you care about. If you weren’t a fan of Firefly then you don’t care quite as much, but I think you’ll still care. There was a LOT of action. The action made sense in context with the story. There is a depth here that is missing so much today.

This movie has love.

All the things that movies are missing these days.

My family and I laughed, and we cried, and we nodded grim-faced. There’s joy and sadness and resolution and retribution. There are “Big Damn Heroes.”

If I said anything else I’d start spoiling and nobody likes a spoiler.

But this is a movie that requires as much attention as we can give it. Hollywood wants to know why we’re not going to the movies. Give us more of this and less of the crap without any heart.
