Serenity rocks on toast!

lostsatyr and I went out with tarbis and im_a_woman to see Serenity yesterday afternoon.

Oh. Oh, WOW. It was incredible.

Seeing what really happened to River was a nice touch - it tied up some loose ends from the series and also proved a fine introduction to people who hadn't seen the TV show (like im_a_woman).

It was very sad to lose both Book and Wash, though. I'll miss both of them.

I really liked the line from River to the injured Simon - "You've always taken care of me." Pause. "My turn."

And River - our little girl certainly has grown up. The scene of her standing behind the blast doors with all the dead Reavers - so effing cool. :D

This is definitely one to see again (perhaps even at full price, definitely at the second-run show), and add to the DVD library when it comes out.

The scene of River standing over her little pile of bodies is the moment I stopped hating her. She'd always been a broken, fragile plot device masquerading as a character to me, but.. damn. She kicks some major ass.
I love it that the fight was choregraphed to look as much like she's dancing as anything else.

Book, I expected.
Wash.. surprised me. The shocked silence of the theater the first time I saw it? Amazing.

Apparently Summer Glau (who plays River) is a ballerina, so perhaps that explains the fight coreography.

I'm realy going to miss Wash, just letting the characters living in my head a little longer I can imagine how much Zoe will miss him, and the rest of the crew.

On the subway this weekend we saw a shirt that said "I am a leaf in the wind. Watch how I soar." It was not one of these but I'm on the hunt.

I think I need a t-shirt with them in the mule being run down by the reavers with the line "I swallowed a bug." on it.

I think I have to get Bill something to wear from serenity, because I want too. ;)
