I KNEW This Blogging Thing Would Eventually Pay Off!
I’ve mentioned Serenity here before. Specifically, I got the box-set DVDs of Firefly for Father’s Day last year, this EXCELLENT cartoon from May, and this post from April linking to the first trailer. (Just establishing my bona fides.)
Man, I can’t wait. This looks GOOD, unlike most of the dreck that Hollyweird’s kicked out this year.
Tagline of the year: “I aim to misbehave.”
UPDATE: Per the requirements to get into the advanced screening, the synopsis of the film:
Joss Whedon, the Oscar® – and Emmy – nominated writer/director responsible for the worldwide television phenomena of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE, ANGEL and FIREFLY, 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, Serenity. The film centers around Captain Malcolm Reynolds, a hardened veteran (on the losing side) of a galactic civil war, who now ekes out a living pulling off small 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.
IMHO, the ensemble acting is some of the best I’ve seen since M*A*S*H. Maybe better.
