Serenity review by Orson Scott Card

He likes it! A lot! He'll let Enders Game be made into a film if it's done this well!!

(Warning: He's careful not to reveal much and there are no spoilers, but he does say who or what the central story is about. If you don't want to know anything at all about the film, stop reading when you reach the para near the bottom starting with "For those of you who love the TV series, keep this in mind")

I'm a little disturbed that in the same review Orson Scott Card writes, "(...) Watch reruns of Full House. That was a really funny, heartwarming TV series and it's just a shame the kids have all grown up and now we can never have the feature film with the original cast."

I don't think he's being sarcastic.

Roger Ebert gave Serenity a solid review and I think reading Ebert gives a great perspective by a reviewer who isn't into SF.

Roll on 10 Nov! I've seen enough reviews, and I'm looking forward to seeing the movie itself.
