For those of you sci-fi fans who may have been living in a cave, the movie Serenity comes out this Friday. As I am sure you know, this film is based off of the wonderful, if short-lived television series Firefly. I am so excited for this movie. If it is even comparable to the TV series it will be worth the wait. The trailers for it have been kind of weak, but feedback from the advance screenings have been very positive.

I could have registered as a blogger and been able to attend one of the press screenings, but it was in Milwaukee and until I replace my car I am making no trips out of town. Ah, well I am still going to see it immediately upon opening, which is convenient because with my work schedule I’ll probably only get to see it this weekend if I go to a midnight show. So my attendance late on Thursday night is justified. :-)

If you haven’t figured it out yet, I am a huge dork. There was a time in my life where I could have quoted the entirety of the movie Real Genius to you on demand.

I just got back from the midnight showing of Serenity, and it kicked my ass. I really really enjoyed it. I was a bit worried going into it, and I hope that the emotional impact of the film is as significant for those who haven’t seen the series, but I think it turned into a great sci-fi flick.
“Why exactly do you own this again?”

Okay, I have an embarrassing confession to make. I actually own a copy of The Craft. Yes, that teen movie about the four witches. You must understand that it has sentimental value because my friend Dan and I saw that movie (in the theater no less) quite a few times in high school when we were going through our “dark” period.
