Firefly was fab, and I loved the first few seasons of Buffy before I realised it was mainly because I was obsessed with SMG. Then real girls and beer drew my attention.
I actually agree with most of those things, and I'm not a fan of war films generally so maybe that's why I was a little unimpressed. There are other reasons I'd go into when potential spoilers are fair game (although I don't really think anything that happens in it would be a huge surprise to anyone!)I thought it was rather good - not a jolly/kid-friendly/joyful kinda movie like TFA at all though. Dark, warfilm like.
Might be the best film of them all?
Point is, Joss Whedon is a great entertainer, but it's all window dressing. Characters and plot are reactionary rather than planned. That doesn't make them bad (I really enjoyed Firefly), but he misses a depth - much like Lucas does. Which seems odd considering the incredible world Lucas created and the tangled story. The problem was, he laid out the plan as a fantastic arc across the two trilogies, but then couldn't join the dots. I find Whedon is similar, he has a plan, but spends too much time on the "now" and then dealing with the consequences later with plot/character twists.^Uhm... yes.
Well, second only to Buffy.
Your point being?
Sorry, it's the same conversation. Unfortunately, I don't get a lot of time to post. So it isn't a time thing, it's just like the fourth turn in a conversation. Obviously you're living post to post rather than seeing the big picture - this explains thingsStill banging on about ESB huh? Thou dost protest too fervently, good sir. Insecure in your own judgment, you are.
Never a casual toss...I especially liked the way you just casually tossed in the 'Leia in bikini' thing right there, like, as if that was 'no big deal' or sumat.
