Firefly"Serenity" Movie at Seattle’s Only Film Section on Dec 28 - Jan 3, 2007
Sunday 31 December 2006, by Webmaster
Speaking as someone who never quite managed to keep up with the TV show Firefly, I’ll admit Joss Whedon may very well be a genius-albeit one possibly taken best in small doses.
Whedon’s concepts and riot grrrl tendencies are killer, but his hyperliterate, pop-slangy style wears thin after a while.
The film’s scenario makes only the barest effort to include those not already up on the characters: building on plot threads developed through the series, Whedon’s script catches up mid-quest with a ragtag bunch of outlaws searching for the origin of their youngest crewmember.
This six-gun space oddity comes recommended, but you may want to brush up on the series before venturing into the theater. For God’s sake, don’t let the hardcore fans smell virgin blood.
Egyptian, Fri-Sat midnight.
