Everything Wrong With Serenity In 16 Gorram Minutes Or Less
Serenity is the film version of the TV show Firefly, which had a cult following enough in the early aughts to get a movie made, but today might have been able to use Twitter to get the show picked up by another outlet.
Regardless, it's a fine movie. Entertaining for the most part, largely derivative of the show. Shrug.

    I liked Firefly and Serenity, the only thing I wasn't buying was the Kaylee and Simon relationship

  • housekilla457

    How do reavers clean their spears? They put them through the Wash! Jokes aside, I really liked Wash’s death. There was no five minute farewell, or the “Go on, I’ll slow them down.” stuff. Just a boom and that moment of “Oh shit, did they just?” before everyone had to run.

    I could never get past the unlikely idea that Human interstellar civilization would take its inspiration from the old west. So... in the 2500's, all of humanity will be heavily culturally influenced by a period of American history that ended in 1920 and has almost no influence right now... Seems plausible. I mean, everything we do these days has a heavy 1400's feel, right? Especially our fashion and weapon designs, right? Dollhouse was 300% better.

    "As noble as a grape" is not gibberish, maybe just a bit elitist. There are six grapes that winemakers consider "noble": Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling, and Sauvignon Blanc.

    im not sure if this is just a problem with youtube now or a problem with cinema sins, but seriously? i had an ad before the video started, four mid video ad breaks, and then an ad at the end. that is TOO MUCH

    Pax means peace. Also, the reason they are chasing River changed from "she is a weapon we were developing" to "MAYBE she knows a specific secret". And with that secret out, why would it be over? What other secrets does she know?

    @1:04 The movie couldn't be called Firefly, because Fox still controlled that name. It HAD to be named something else, and Serenity is an excellent alternate choice.

  • Qwiso

    many reasons that noble as a grape makes sense: because grapes have often been a depiction of status. having the land and workforce to operate a winery, having grapes from the vine fed to you etc. plus the color of concord grapes ...

    Never got the cult following for Firefly. Tried to watch it, wasn't for me, was a snooze fest in my opinion.

    I realize I am a couple months late to the comments but no sins for the blatant rip off of an episode of Sea Quest DSV? I know I was one of just a handful of people that watched that show but come on, Joss Whedon even stole "Miranda".

    the characters are fictional, my anger is real.

    Although I loved the series, My biggest complaint is the use of "old west" guns in a futuristic outer space movie. ( Dark Tower did the same )

    • Eleda Towle

      Joss created the show to be a hybrid Western/Sci Fi show. Check out most of the architecture on the planets they visit (very Western) and in the first episode, they're riding in a covered wagon wearing period clothes... Leading to one of the best lines ever uttered in Hollywood history: "I swear by my pretty floral bonnet, I will end you."

  • Codedawg1212

    Both Firefly and Serenity sucked. It took a few drooling idiots to make them a cult series.

    I enjoyed the movie, but yes, i thought it was a very weird movie filled with contradiction and awkward moments. But hey, i also remember there was not many sci-fi movie around to watch at the time. Damn, they aren't that much sci-fi movie to watch anytime! So when one come out, we just flock to it. At least i do! ;)

  • raptorms773

    You know I never knew Firefly and this movie where based on the same thing, just thought it was a coincidence they all had the same names as well as the ship. Damn I can seriously overlook things

    The mandarin-speaking Browncoats don't know what they are saying either because it sure ain't mandarin, or any chinese dialect.

    • Eleda Towle
      Eleda Towle

      It actually was supposed to be Mandarin - They had a Chinese consultant on the show who wrote the phrases and tried to teach the cast pronunciation. However, as she said in the "Extra Features" on the series DVD set, they failed terribly at pronouncing them. Most of the Mandarin was supposed to be creative cursing, like "three-balled, monkey headed vomit face." She said she often had to call friends to see which words made the most sense together, since those were phrases probably no one in China has ever actually spoken, LOL

    It wasn't called Firefly because Fox own the rights to that name and wouldn't release it.

    Bullet-proof glass you can break with the butt of a pistol - reminds me of the old George Reeves Superman show. He would stand still while the bad guy emptied his gun, bullets just bouncing off his chest, but after the bullets were all used up, the bad guy would throw his gun at Superman and Superman would duck. Maybe somebody told him guns were made out of Kryptonite.

    Miss the whole point of the movie, much? The Government creates the Reavers and tries to cover the fact up, leading them to hunt down the psychic girl (River) because she MAY have "heard" something in the mind of some governmental visitor. Reavers are not added just for the heck of it. It's the entire point of the movie, and where the series was to have been headed had it not been canceled.

  • wirelesmike73

    You must be a miserable sob if you think that there is anything wrong with this movie. Just how empty is your life? Get some help, man.

    Lol...you may have “poked a hibernating bear” with this one.

  • Bruce Burns

    Seriously?! The entire plot is revealing the conspiracy that created the Reavers, and you gave them a sin for including it quickly. That's just lazy. You even admitted that it worked into the story later.

  • Patrick Borunda
    Patrick Borunda

    Honestly I know you are an asshole, and you admit you are an asshole. But when you do things like complain that Mr. Universe should have know about the video he was sent and then complain that his setup is inefficient you loose all credibility. He doesn't know it happened because his shit is chaotic. Also River got the gun from the safes because Mal was messing with them. Do you actually watch the movies in their entirety or just pick a random frame and assume that nothing was done before that. I get you choose to dispend your disbelief for your job, but you have started to just complain about things without evidence to often now. Go back to being good at your job please, it is funnier when you do.
