The reviews are starting to come in…
The Scotsman reviews Joss Whedon’s new film Serenity.
The film is the continuation (conclusion?) of Whedon’s 2003 series Firefly, which was infamously cancelled by Fox when it proved to be not Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Geesh. I recently netflixed the Firefly series, which is available on DVD with all the unaired episodes in the order that Whedon intended they be shown in (Fox aired episodes in a different order). Lo and behold, the series was actually easy to follow and the characters were better developed. And now it looks like early reviewers are liking the movie.
Serenity will open in the US on September 30.
