Serenity: Hell yeah!

I loved this movie and have no complaints....

Well....

I'm pretty pissed about Book and Wash but it made for a good movie. I'm glad Simon grew some balls; nice development.

The origin of the Reavers was great storytelling. I'm not sure how the story would look to someone who hadn't watched Firefly though. I half expected for them to discover that River was a Reaver. I miss the Hand of Blue guys but The Operative (Chiwetel Ejiofor) was awesome enough.

I actually feel like holding a candlelight vigil for Wash and Book. I guess we can't have it all.

I'm happy for Joss Whedon. He did a damned good job. Now if he doesn't do any half-assed prequels, he may stay on my good list.

Haven't seen the movie yet as we have a newborn at home now, but I did read the novelization the day after it came out and LOVED IT. I hated Wash and Book dying as well. For a bit there I thought that Simon and Kaylee were goners too.

Can't stop the Signal.

My husband and I have been to see the movie twice now and it was even better the second time around. I think Joss did a great job provding new viewers with background and the characters without boring those of us who already loved them.
I really hope it does well enough that Universal will be willling to make another one.
