Doom (Dir. Andrzej Bartkowiak, 2005): Based on the hugely popular video game, Doom is an explosive action-packed thrill ride!

A frantic call for help from a remote research station on Mars sends a team of mercenary Marines into action. Led by The Rock and Karl Urban, they descend into the Olduvai Research Station, where they find a legion of nightmarish creatures, lurking in the darkness, killing at will. Once there, the Marines must use an arsenal of firepower to carry out their mission: nothing gets out alive.

Serenity (Dir. Joss Whedon, 2005): 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 and 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.

Many of the film's action sequences revolve around Summer Glau's martial arts skills in her portrayal of River. Glau prepared for her role with Hong Kong stuntwoman Ming Lu, as well as stunt coordinators Chad Stahelski and Hiro Koda, and as a result performed nearly all the stuntwork herself. 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.

Doom (2005) - **
Once again it is proven emphatically that good video games do not translate into good movies. How many more examples of this do we need? Lara Croft, Silent Hill, Resident Evil, bad, bad, bad. The most entertaining part of this film is where the camera slips into a first person shooter in an unexpectedly inspired sequence. Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Karl Urban put in half-decent performances, but are given very little to work with in terms of drama. The most comfortable they ever look is when they are being attacked. Beware however, of a truly atrocious ending.
Serenity (2005) - ****
Having never watched the TV series on which it was based, I went into Serenity devoid of expectations and was consistently impressed by Joss Whedon's vampire western in space. Serenity manages to present an impressive range of action sequences, from space dogfights to sword duels. The cast is also good, in particular the charming Nathan Fillion, an unsettling Summer Glau and a chilling Chiwetel Ejiofor. The film can't help but swagger, managing to be amusing, exciting and in parts, even scary.
