Serenity (2005)

One of the best movies in a long time...., 8 October 2005
10/10

I have no words to describe what I just saw. As Whedon's first production for the Movie Screen, it does more justice to what a movie should be than some that experienced directors have made. Despite having to make it appeal to a greater audience than when it was a brief television show, he stuck to his original ideas, and brought them forth in an amazing ending to an already epic story.

Throughout the movie, you will be laughing; the dialogue is very witty and the characters feel alive. It has a darker element within it that will probably shock you at least once during the length. Finally there are very touching, very sad scenes that will make you want to cry. If no reviews have swayed you, if you are still unsure about this movie, just see it. It will cost you 10 bucks which you won't miss in the long run, and once you have, 99.9% of you will think it was more than worth it.

This show had a good message!, 6 July 2004

I don't understand you people. This show was meant for children to teach them to respect the environment. You christians who claim that it offends you, get over it. Be accepting of other peoples beliefs, even if they are different. There is already more than enough Christian shows out there.

This show taught me valuable lessons, and as a kid, I never saw any underlying themes, other than to help the planet. It may not have been the best cartoon, but it was one of the few that had a great message, and one of my favorites.

As for political aspects, do you people spend your every waking moment searching cartoons for secret agendas? Get a life! This show may have other agendas, I don't know and I doubt that if it did, anyone who watched it, being a young child, would even notice. This show tried to unite different beliefs, different backgrounds and to show us that we can work together and make a difference. I admit that as an adult, I now see the cliché-ness of the villains, but as a kid I never noticed and I doubt any child would. The message of saving the earth won't even reach every watcher (though it will reach some), let alone all this other junk you are reading into it.

All in all, this was a good show, and I think kids need more shows like it. I wish that all those who disliked it for whatever reason, could at least try to see the good it was trying to do.
