A few months back, one of the best science fiction movies in recent history hit theaters, and didn't make as big a splash as it should have. It got a bit lost among the morass of sequels, romantic comedies and other sound and fury. As I said in my column at the time, "Serenity" is a movie that won't insult your intelligence. It's a thrill ride for grownups, with dialogue that crackles with intelligence and a plot more intricate than a half-season of "Lost."
And, if you missed it the first time, you've got another chance to see it on the big screen. This coming weekend, theaters all over the world are running a benefit screening of "Serenity" to raise money for Equality Now!, a group devoted to ending discrimination and violence against women and girls worldwide. So, you get to see a stunningly good movie and raise money for a good cause. Is there a better way to spend a Friday or Saturday evening?
Oh, and did I mention there'll be door prizes? I don't know about you, but door prizes are important when I make my entertainment choices.
