Serenity Review
Serenity Review
2005-10-01 01:05:02 by Andrew Hitchcock G+
Well, I finally saw Serenity. Cinerama did not show it, unfortunately, so we had to go to Meridian 16. Fortunately, there seemed to be lots of nerds in attendance. We arrived not long before it started, so we had to sit fairly close to the screen. The projection was good, but the sound was a little lacking (it didn't seem like a flat EQ). Also, we saw the Doom trailer. I was laughing when it first started because it was the cliche mars action/adventure opening. As soon as I saw the first FPS clips, I thought it was sweet, and then realized it was Doom. Hilarious. Finally, Serenity started. The rest of this message will be ROT-13ed to prevent spoilers. To read it, you have to break the encryption ;).
