Serenity Now (Finally!)Dec 05
Can I ask y’all a question?
Y’all are my friends, right? And y’all don’t mind that I’m hittin’ y’all with lots of “y’all” cause I been watchin’ too much Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders on CMT, right, y’all?
Why didn’t y’all kick my ass and make me watch Serenity a long time ago?! Y’all, that movie’s awesome, y’all!
I’m a Whedonite, full tilt. And yet…and yet lately, when I stumble on Buffy or Angel on my cable box dial, I feel somehow distant from it. Like it’s a relic of my early twenties, like the dialogue feels too on-the-nose, like Whedon’s style isn’t really speaking to me as it once did.
Serenity…well, it SPOKE to me. It takes Whedon’s tropes and style and elevates it to a level that deserves to stand on its own alongside any of the great sci-fi films of the past year, the past decade, maybe further back, I dunno.
It’s not a movie you “may like if you like Buffy,” it’s just a GOOD fucking movie, y’all.
