Serenity: A good sci-fi flick

A Scene from SerenityI’m probably a little late to the party on this, but I just watched Serenity last night and it was crazy entertaining. I’ve been hearing good things about it, and I ordered the Firefly DVD Set from Amazon, so hopefully it will be just as good.

I really like the way that the author decided to mix the dialects and languages, not so much that it was convoluted, but just enough to remind you that this is a different time and place.

The special effects aren’t anything to write home about, but they are convincing and do not distract from the story line.

The characters are well developed and you get a sense that you know them by the end of the movie.

Overall, I will probably watch the movie again several times and I’ll recommend it to my friends.

    cool.. i’ll have to check it out.

    with your previous post, it is odd how much churches (people in them that is) value their building. anytime they are given the opportunity to turn someone down, they love that high road. when mel and i got married, the church she was a part of held about 40 people or so. so we needed a new location. NO church would let us get married there. despite my own ”baptist ordination” they wouldn’t even let us use chapels that they had solely for weddings. it is strange, and i think it is something a church could really do to reach out to the community in a cool way. (what if we offered free or cheap location with deposit of course, tons of people could have exposure to our ministry).

    how’d the MGYC go? geekery is fun.

    I certainly agree that the church could use their facilities as more of a ministry than a guarded castle.

    The MGYC went really well. My technology in ministry class for workers/adults was very well attended and I think that we were able to just barely touch on enough stuff to thoroughly confuse people. Seriously though, I think the youth workers got a good bit out of it, at least enough to spark their interest and get them thinking.

    The session for the kids also went well. The room was full, but I think (know) some of them were there because their parents or youth workers made them come.

    I had a really good time doing both the sessions and have had good feedback on both of them.
