Let me tell you about a little movie called Serenity.
I haven’t been more excited about seeing a movie in years. For godssake, I saw the movie two hours ago and I’m even more excited about seeing it again than I was about seeing it in the first place.
It was a work print; although the special effects seemed to be in place, the image quality was bad, the sound mix was crude, and the music was all temporary. But I couldn’t have loved it more. The thought of seeing what I saw tonight in real THX digital surround with a color-matched print and a David Newman score gives me the shivers.
I can’t think of another movie I’ve seen that has as satisfying a blend of adventure, humor and heart. Suck it, Star Wars.

And then, just for good measure:
- SOME MORE BADASSERY.
