One of my favorite authors, Orson Scott Card saw and loved Serenity
. His ringing endorsement
of the film and why it works is over at his web site.
Card lavishes high praise upon Serenity
. Card won the Hugo and Nebula for Ender's Game
, which has been in development for years now due to Card's being extremely protective of the novel making the jump to the big-screen (and rightfully so since classic stories like I, Robot
and Starship Troopers
were no where near as great as the books and give the non-reading general audience a distorted view of why they are so beloved and well-respected). In his review, Card states if Ender's Game should make the jump to the silver screen, he'd hope it would be as good as Serenity turned out. If not, he'd rather not see Ender on the silver screen.
Now, I'll admit--I don't always agree with Card on some things. He had a post a few months ago celebrating the downfall of Star Trek
and he stated he's never liked the various shows. I didn't agree, but that's OK.
But I was glad to hear his glowing praise for Serenity
. And you know, there are worse directors I could see attached to Ender's Game
than Joss "I can do anything" Whedon.
