Scott and I went to the second annual Can't Stop the Serenity screening Saturday hosted and founded by the local Firefly/Serenity fan group PDX Browncoats. We really enjoyed last year's event which introduced me to Joss Whedon's sci-fi/western creation.

It felt a little silly waiting outside in line for a half hour and then another hour inside during the pre-show raffle in anticipation of seeing a movie that we've already seen. However, Scott and I agree that Serenity is one of the best movies ever and it is fun watching it with fellow fans. It has a good pace, thoughtful story and entertaining dialogue.

The charity screening benefits Equality Now, an international group that advocates equality for women and girls. Before the movie, a clip of Joss Whedon's powerful speech at an Equality Now event was shown. It's a little long, but entertaining and worth hearing:

I can't wait for next year's event.
