Movie synopsis
This double feature contains the following two sci-fi fantasy features: SERENITY: Beloved television cult director Joss Whedon (BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER, ANGEL) makes a spectacular first foray onto the big screen with SERENITY, the cinematic adaptation of his wildly popular but short-lived sci-fi series, FIREFLY. A mix of space western, comedy, and drama, SERENITY follows Captain Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds (Nathan Fillion) and his ragtag crew as they trade their way around the edges of civilized society. Of particular interest are two passengers they take on, Simon and River Tam (Sean Maher, Summer Glau), a brother and his telepathic sister on the run from the corrupt governing Alliance. As notorious former members of the anti-Alliance opposition, Mal and his crew make it difficult for Simon and River to stay hidden. Everything goes completely awry when a government assassin is sent to retrieve River. As Mal is forced to choose between his close-knit crew and the brother and sister newcomers, it becomes apparent that River harbors both a dangerous secret and astounding fighting powers, and Mal decides that discovering the truth about what she knows might just be worth his time. In addition to the stellar stunts, realistic graphics, and an often haunting score, the film's actors display a rare chemistry that brings viewers both into their lives and into a possible version of humanity's future.CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK: The sequel to cult sci-fi hit PITCH BLACK sees Vin Diesel enthusiastically returning to his role as Richard B. Riddick. Director-writer David Twohy is on board again, building on themes established in the first movie, and expanding his vision with some amazing special effects work. As the movie opens, Riddick is on the run from a group of bounty hunters. He escapes them with ease, then seeks information from an old friend named Inam (Keith David). Inam informs Riddick that he has been singled out by an Air Elemental, Aereon (Judi Dench), as the one man who can stop the evil Necromongers from taking over the Universe. Suddenly, the Necromongers arrive on the planet, causing mayhem and destruction. They capture Riddick. He soon escapes, only to fall into the hands of the bounty hunters he so deftly eluded at the start of the movie. They take Riddick to a rogue prison planet where he is met by scorching heat, an underground penitentiary, and his female companion from PITCH BLACK, Jack (who is now called Kyra, and played by a different actress, Alexa Davalos). They plan their escape from the planet, and vow to bring down the Necromongers. Things don't go according to plan however, and the film builds to a suspense-filled climax and an eyebrow-raising ending that suggests Twohy may have plans for further installments in the story.

Great Double Movie Deal

Double Movie Combo DVD

1. Serenity: From the television show FIREFLY

The crew of the Serenity lead by Captain Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds (Nathan Fillion) pick up Simon and River Tam (Sean Maher, Summer Glau) and soon discover River's unique abilities and that everyone in the universe is looking for her. They also discover that River knows secrets that the Alliance will kill to keep anyone else from finding out.

This movie is basically a short explanation of the television series with a few added bonuses.

Very good even if you have never seen the television show.

2. Chronicles of Riddick: Vin Diesel stars in this sequel to Pitch Black.

In the film Riddick is being chased by bounty hunters. After defeating the bounty hunters he takes their craft and sets out to find out who put the bounty on his head. During the search he discovers that he is the one chosen to defeat the Necromongers who are trying to take over the galaxy by converting everyone to their 'faith'.

This movie is full of fast paced action and Diesel continues to make this character one to watch.

If you have not seen Pitch Black be sure you get that one as well as this movie makes a lot more sense if you have seen Pitch Black first.
