Serenity launches Friday

Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon's sci-fi film Serenity opens on Friday. It's being discussed over at the TPMCafe:

The primacy of character, story, and theme, as opposed to special effects, also distinguish the Serenity ambience from what's found in so much science fiction, horror, and fantasy. The carefully woven sense of another reality and its fascinating inhabitants provide a context rich enough to inspire feelings of care and, if my experience is typical, a general sense of being more alive. This work is thoughtful in its messages, beautiful in its recognition of struggle and contingency, and deeply invigorating.
That sounds very much like what made Whedon's BtVS such a great work of television. The official site for Serenity is here.

I'm also looking forward to this tremendously - I was never a huge Buffy (the series) fan, but I am a recent and devout convert to Firefly, even if the Sci-Fi channel bleeps out all the rude words (the English ones - they leave the Chinese cursing untouched).

I am currently watching the entire season on DVD and loving it. Gotta hurry before the movie comes out.
