Well, I just got back from the midnight show and I have mixed feelings about it. First of all, I really liked the movie as far as story, acting, progression and the action sequences. It's great to see the crew together again to further their tale. It's everything that you get from the series plus a higher production value that looks great. The audience was totally into it and I feel that it delivered. Which comes to my whole problem about the movie... I think that it delivered too much of the story too quick. On one hand I think it's great that they answered a lot of the questions that you had for the show, unlike X-Files where there was really nothing gained from the movie version. But on the other hand, I was hoping that they would leave me wanting more. At this point I'm pretty satisfied with the story of Firefly if it was to close with the movie they have now and I really have no desire for any sequels or the return of the series. My whole problem is that I WANT to want more. The story, as good as it is, doesn't give enough room for the whole cast to breathe. Each person gets their small scene, but ultimately this is Mal's and River's show. Hell the bad guy gets more lines than the rest of the crew... I know that this is the spoiler thread but let me warn you one last time... don't read further... I'm greatly disappointed that they killed off Book and Wash. I know it grounded you to reality but like I said I was hoping to see more of the rest of the crew, if not on this movie then maybe the next. But there's really no chance of that for those two characters. Maybe it seemed that their character isnt that important but on the show they were pretty significant. At this point I think that Simon is a character that is more dispensible. But oh well that's life isn't it, even though it's just make believe. I really have to give it to Joss Whedon though, these are pretty brave choices to make. The story is not less interesting, it's really a good movie. I just believe that it worked better as a series than it did as a movie. Stupid Fox!
