Still obsessed with Shiny Things

August 26, 2006

I’m still obsessed with Firefly/Serenity. Sorry – but I am.

This review is one of the best ones I’ve read. It was written by a distinguished Sci-fi writer. Check it out. It brings back so many memories. I hope to have an experience like seeing that movie for the first time again some day.

I love this bit:

“I can enjoy the first Matrix and see it as a kind of magic sci-fi, but recognize that in the end, it’s all about the mystical quasi-religious ideas and the special effects, and not about human beings at all.

Because for me, a great film — sci-fi or otherwise — comes down to relationships and moral decisions. How people are with each other, how they build communities, what they sacrifice for the sake of others, what they mean when they think of a decision as right vs. wrong.”
