Insufficiently Random

The lonely musings of a loosely connected software developer.

I never go see movies in the movie theater. I always wait for them to come out on DVD, then I watch them at home in my home theater. I didn't see any of the Lord of the Rings trilogy in the theater; I waited for the director's edition DVD before watching any of them. I didn't see any of the Matrix trilogy in the theater; again I watched the DVDs. But I couldn't wait for Serenity.

So I went with a friend Friday night to see Serenity (aka the Big Damn Movie), even though I came to Firefly late, as I only saw the DVDs this summer. I have had a very mixed reaction to Serenity. On one hand I was very happy I went to go see it, as it was one of the best movies I have seen in a long time. On the other hand some of the plot twists taken by Joss really upset me and some of the charm that the show had just wasn't in the movie... but nothing translates from TV to the big screen without changes.

I'm glad I forked over $9.75 to see the BDM Friday night. It was worth it. And I will definately pick up the DVD when it comes out. Here's hoping that Joss and crew get a chance to make a sequel; assuming they can make it as good as Serenity itself was.
