Serenity

Went to see the movie last night -- was not too bad, in fact might well be one of the better sci-fi movies I got to see in the last few months (that after a total dissatisfaction from watching The Revenge of a Sith). It's also sort of nice to see a movie that does not only rely on CGI to get the effects. I wonder what the budget was -- sure does not look like it was huge -- that with the sort of so-twentieth-cenury cockpit and a high reliance on projectile weapons.

Can't say that the idea of the movie is all that great -- but it shines by having well-written dialogues, as well as by borrowing a bit from original Star Wars and Indiana Jones' movies (the whole Indiana Jones/Han Solo look of Mel -- pretty nostalgic...) in style and little magic.
