Whedon pulls off a stunning feat in bringing balance to this superhuman circus, engineered to charm the geek core and non-fans alike.
Whedon is dominating lately..

I'm sure I'll agree with most everything Mr. McCarthy states in this review. However, for him to berate Serenity as "middling" when it is now a beloved sci-fi classic that has an outstanding 7.9 rating on IMDB is insulting. I just had to put that out there.

Never take the IMDB ratings seriously. They are so flawed.
Apr 23 - 12:27 PM
Yeah, they really are strange sometimes. A high rating can either mean "this is truly a classic movie" or "this is a movie that is popular at the moment."
Apr 26 - 04:50 PM
Yeah, IMDB does not a classic make. But I agree with you about Serenity, although the Firefly season was even better.
Apr 23 - 04:38 PM
While I loved Firefly, Serenity is far from a "classic." Middling is pretty accurate, really.
Apr 23 - 11:27 PM
Well, 7.9/10 is a C+ in school, so I can imagine someone might interpret that as middling ...

Why is Don Cheadle listed for this movie on RT? I know people who have seen it and they say he is not even mentioned, let alone in it.
Apr 21 - 04:05 AM
Yeah, because one person made the whole movie, right?
Apr 21 - 01:51 PM
There was one director, yes.

As said, there is one director. Also, if the movie sucked, Whedon would also get the blame. It's like being the President. You get both credit and blame for things that aren't necessarily in your power to influence.

Good I like everything Joss has done basically, he should do Wonder Woman at some point

thats a dc comic so dont expect it to happen
Apr 25 - 04:15 PM
DC properties as a whole (with the giant exception of Batman) have had pretty bad luck in the last couple decades.

Can't wait to see Rex Reed's review. It should be either really stupid, really funny, really annoying, or all three combined.
Apr 24 - 12:09 PM
I'm voting for the combo pack.
Apr 24 - 02:05 PM
How about "surreal?" As in, the guy seems to live in his own reality.
Apr 26 - 05:46 PM
Agreed. I fully enjoyed the movie as well. Full of action and was hilarious. Recommended :)
