Cheapus reviews Serenity, the follow-up movie to Firefly, Joss Whedon's low-rated sci-fi western series that was quickly canceled. In the movie, the crew of Serenity, captained by Mal Reynolds (Nathan Fillion), try to evade an assassin (Chiwetel Ejiofor) who's out to neutralize River (Summer Glau) because she may have used her psychic abilities to learn secrets about the Alliance. It was a huge gamble making a big budget film based on a failed TV show. Did it pay off? Well... you probably already know the answer to that, but Cheapus will tell you anyway!
21 Jump Street (2012)
“21 Jump Street is a meta-film that laughs at its very existence.”Aeon Flux (2005)
“I guess they were going for the ‘making simple things as cryptic as possible’ motif of the series, not realizing that it didn’t really work all that well on the show, either.”Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)
“‘More of the same’, though I’d still say it was better overall than the previous Avengers movie and trumps it on most levels.”The Cabin in the Woods (2012): A loving hate letter to horror
“It’s really amusing to watch each character get slowly dumbed down before our eyes. It’s like watching the history of slasher films itself, as each sequel becomes stupider, more clichéd, and less human and enjoyable.”Secret Avengers is what Agents of SHIELD should have been
“It feels distinctly like the beginning; that one day, the name Ales Kot will be associated with something huge and fantastic, and we’ll look back at early issues of Secret Avengers and recall how we knew he was destined for greatness all along.”2012 (2009): A masterwork of idiotic disaster porn
“Oh, the places you’ll be dragged, dear viewer.”
