The missus and I caught Serenity at the cinema last night, and it is a most excellent film. All round, witty, action packed, scary, adventurous, hilarious film.

And it's also a very interesting event.

You see, a long time ago there was a show called Firefly created by Joss Whedon of Buffy fame. Sadly the show got cancelled part way through it's first season for various reasons. But the show was very good - it took an episode or two for it to grow on myself- my wife took to it immediately - but the end result was the same - we were very quickly hooked.

So after the show gets cancelled, the "fan community" works and works to get the show returned - and after a few years of campaigning, cajoling, harassing, blackmailing-- they have succeeded, sort of - in the form of Serenity. Serenity continues where Firefly left off. But as Roger Ebert points out - the film is really good even if you haven't seen any Firefly episodes.

So now here I am peddling the film to my friends. Serenity has some very interesting marketing going on - and here's the challenge it's put out there - Watch the first 9 minutes of the film. It's free, and it's online. If you like it - go see it! I think you'll be glad you did. If you don't have 9 minutes, you can see the trailer on the website - it gives a more rounded idea of what the film is actually about.

    It look absolutely amazing. I'm still trying to figure out how to get out to see it.

    Never watched Firefly. But when I saw the Serenity trailers, I knew I had to see it. Now, if only I can convince my wife that this movie is worth seeing, instead of the typical documentaries she insists on watching. Sorry Penguins.

    Hey it's a film "pour femme" too. Charlote really enjoyed it, but she liked firefly even more.

    at least you can see the first 9 minutes !
