I am a sci-fi film fan. On Sunday evening, our local cinema put on "Serenity". This showing was an opportunity too good to miss.

Following his successes with "Buffy" and "Angel", in 2003 Joss Whedon made a television series "Firefly". This was a sci-fi / western series about a spaceship, "Firefly", owned and captained by Mal, the Nathan Fillion character. A second series was not commissioned but the producers thought there was sufficient interest for a feature film, "Serenity", released in 2005.

We have both the tv series and the film on dvd, but this was the first time we had seen the film on a cinema screen. We just loved it, for us this is a 5-star film. Seeing a film on a big screen really does make a big difference to the film experience. It also gives the nerds a chance to dress up, in this case half a dozen came as a group wearing hand knitted, sort of Peruvian headwarmers, in orange and yellow and brown, as the crew's gun-obsessed muscle Jayne (Adam Baldwin) receives one in a package from his mother.

A great night out.
