For those who have been questioning whether they should wait for a
confirmation email on the pre-screening of Serenity
to bloggers: I just
received my confirmation email. Others have suggested that there
may not be one. I'm looking forward to it. While Joss
Whedon never quite hit the level of genius displayed by Babylon 5, he's
been producing the best thing on television since the main arc of B5
If you're not familiar with the premise, here's the synopsis:
Joss Whedon, the Oscar® - and Emmy - nominated writer/director
for the worldwide television phenomena of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE, ANGEL and
now applies his trademark compassion and wit to a small band of galactic
outcasts 500 years in the future in his feature film directorial debut,
film centers around Captain Malcolm Reynolds, a hardened veteran (on
side) of a galactic civil war, who now ekes out a living pulling off
crimes and transport-for-hire aboard his ship, Serenity. He leads a
small, eclectic crew who are the closest thing he has left to family -- squabbling, insubordinate and undyingly loyal.
not sure how well the things that I like about the series will carry
over into the movie, but there's only one way to find out.
The only thing that makes me nervous is the great big sword and axe
prominently featured on some of the promotional graphics. It
looks too Buffyesque to me, however fond I am of swordplay in general;
it simply doesn't fit the scenario. I'll just have to wait and
see how they handle that.
I like the graphic below better.
