TV Guide On-Line has a short interview
with Joss "I am a genius" Whedon, discussing the best movie of 2005, Serenity
. For those of you who missed it, the movie comes out on DVD next Tuesday. I will be first in line to buy a copy of this fantastic film that I hope gains an even larger audience on DVD (in the same sort of way that the first Austin Powers
gained an audience on home video back in the day).
I must implore you to not rent but go out and buy this DVD. Why do you ask?
Let me quote Joss, when asked if there could be more Firefly
It's hard to say. I think the DVD sales will have a lot to say about that. Are there more stories to tell? You bet. Would I love to tell them and work with everyone again? The answer is also yup. Now, the movie did not get a huge amount of people out to see it. We'll need the DVD to make the money back. But I rule out nothing. I think it's the type of movie that can be discovered on DVD. It has definitely affected the people who have seen it.
So, basically, what I'm saying is go out and buy it Tuesday. Then buy it for everyone on your Christmas list. And then buy it for everyone you come into contact with and even buy it for people you don't like. Buy many, many copies so that we can have a sequel. Trust me...you'll love this movie.
