Serenity Bounces Onto Blu-ray With Actually Awesome Cover and a Ton of New FeaturesGive me Malcolm Reynolds over any other bucket-o-bolts captain ever. Joss Whedon is a national treasure and Nathan Fillion is his greatest muse. Yes, I'm such a fanboy I totally won't mind buying Serenity for the third time, finally on Blu-ray, since it comes packed with a Firefly class ship's worth of new features (like a bonus four hours of Whedon weeping on camera, says Mark), BD-Live content, and a bump to lossless 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio. Perhaps the best feature though, is that the cover finally doesn't suck. Worth the $30 MSRP, though I'm sad it won't arrive until Dec. 30, weeks after the Firefly boxset.Here's the whole feature list:
* Alliance Database * U Control: Mr. Universe Compendium * U Control: Digital Tour of Serenity * U Control: Picture in Picture * U Control: Visual Commentary with Writer/Director Joss Whedon & Cast * BD Live: My Scenes Sharing * Feature Commentery with Writer / Director Joss Whedon * Feature Commentary with Writer / Director Joss Whedon & Cast Members Nathan Fillion, Adam Baldwin, Summer Glau and Ron Glass * Deleted Scenes with Optional Commentary by Director Joss Whedon * Future History - The Story of Earth That Was * What's In A Firefly * Re-Lighting The Firefly * A Filmmaker's Journey * We'll Have A Fruity Oaty Good Time! * Extended Scenes * Take A Walk On Serenity * The Green Clan * Session 416
Now if Universal will just bless with The Big Lebowski on Blu-ray, I can die happy. [The HD Room - Thanks Chris!]
