September 30th, 2005



Captain Malcolm Reynolds, a hardened veteran on the losing side of a galactic civil war, now ekes out a living pulling off small crimes and transport-for-hire aboard his ship, Serenity. He leads a small, eclectic crew who are the closest thing he has left to family - squabbling, insubordinate and undyingly loyal. When Mal takes on two new passengers - a young doctor and his unstable, telepathic sister - he gets much more than he bargained for. The pair are fugitives from the coalition dominating the universe, who will stop at nothing to reclaim the girl. The crew that was once used to skimming the outskirts of the galaxy unnoticed find themselves caught between the unstoppable military force of the Universal Alliance and the horrific, cannibalistic fury of the Reavers, savages who roam the very edge of space. Hunted by vastly different enemies, they begin to discover that the greatest danger to them may be on board Serenity herself. This is the feature film version of the late, lamented sci-fi cult TV series "Firefly."

4.) Batman Begins

5.) Kingdom Of Heaven

My top 3 would be:

1. Sin City (mainly cause of the kickass trailer + cast, haven't read/seen the 'comic'.)

2. Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of The Sith (I used to be a huge Star Wars fan when I was younger, not to that extent now though)

3. King Kong (It's got Adrien Brody, Jack Black and Andy Serkis, with peter Jackson directing. Should be great)

Guest UmpireAJS

Hitchikers guide to the Galaxy, loved everything of the Franchise so far, and I am eager to see whether the movie can do the same wonder for me.

I've lost much interest on Batman,Star Wars or Harry Potter in the recent years,if this was 2002-03,I would have went for one of them.

1)Batman Begins

Bale, Oldman, Caine, Freeman, Neeson...SOLID cast right there. I was a huge fan of the fist two Batmen, but the last bunch left quite a sour taste in my mouth. I'm also a huge fan of Christopher Nolan's directing, so this movie really has a bunch of elements working towards making it awesome. Hopefully, it lives up to that.

2)Kingdom of Heaven

Gladiator is one of my favourite movies, and Ridley Scott seems to know his historical epics, which I love. I also can't think of the last movie to come out set during the Crusades. I'm very excited about this movie, as it makes me think of braveheart, Gladiator (obviously), and The Messenger. Hoefully, it leans more towards those titles than, say, King Arthur or Troy, two movies that I wasn't too big a fan of.

3)Sin City

Again, an awesome cast and solid director. I've never read the graphic novel, but I really like the look and feel of both it and the movie.

Honorable mentions go to Chronicles of Narnia, just because I watched the British made-for-TV version when I was younger, and love that, War of the Worlds, just because it should be a solid Spielburg movie, especially with Fanning and Cruise, and Star Wars, just based solely on my like of the original trilogy.

I've never been much of a fan of the Harry Potter movies, but would see this one if it has Kenneth Branagh or Gary Oldman back.

I will probably see King Kong based just on everyone who is involved with it (was always more of a Godzilla man, myself...), and I don't have any opinion on Hitchhiker's guide, just beacuse I never read the book, and seriously don't even have the faintest idea what it is about (though I've pieced together the fact that there is a funny looking robot thing in it).

Batman and Star Wars are the two main ones, but I'll probably see some of the other ones. Hitchhiker should be good, if it's anything like the book.


Mere seconds before the Earth is to be demolished by an alien construction crew, journeyman Arthur Dent is swept off the planet by his friend Ford Prefect, a researcher penning a new edition of "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

Doesn't that make it a sequel to the book? I don't know the book, by the way, but the synopsis makes it sound like that.

I'm looking forward to every one of them, but I suppose none more than The Goblet of Fire. These films are a major step forward in adventure cinema, and since I consider GOF the best book in the series thus far, I look forward to seeing what Mike Newell does with it.
