has published its own personal list of the ten best films based on or inspired by a TV series and 2005's Firefly-based Serenity is on the list.
For each ten movies on the list, the author of the article has included a photo, a paragraph explaning its choice and a video of the original tv show.
I've never seen a single episode of "Firefly", but Serenity was one hell of a sci-fi western that never got the attention I believe it deserved. unfortunately some things just don't capture the audience attention or Universal was unable to bring the audience in with its marketing campaign. Either way, Serenity served as what I consider to be my official introduction to Joss Whedon considering I didn't watch "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" or "Angel" and wasn't rushing to see who was responsible for Alien: Resurrection.However, now he's a filmmaker that's big on my radar and the main reason I'm looking forward to The Cabin in the Woods and The Avengers.
