Joss & Neil

To celebrate the opening of Serenity tomorrow, why not get a Joss Whedon fix? Here is an interview to check out: TIME talks with Neil Gaiman and Joss Whedon about Serenity, Mirrormask, the Buffy-verse, Sandman, genre-work, and pop culture.

I know it's wrong to have these feelings being the huge Buffy fan that I am but... i couldn't give a rats ass about Serenity.

Why did Whedon, sorry again, waste his directorial debut on this? Wouldn't it be better to make a brand new film in a brand new Whedon-verse that doesn't have the overriding stench of "oh, it's a movie about that axed tv show!"

It's sad. And now he's gonna do Wonder Woman of all things, which I suppose he could really excell considering his love for female heros.

Well, i hear you. but i don't know... he is a TV genius after all. so it might be the easiest way to transition. That said, if this is hugely successful (i'm about to say something very disloyal to Whedon) ... i don't thrill at the prospect of losing him to the cinema.

the way i see it. TV has far fewer geniuses. and even though i don't watch that many tv shows i like for there to be something on occassionally that's worth gettting obsessed over.

if Whedon moves to the cinema, well... he's no longer that giant fish in the small pond of quality.

Hey, anything that keeps him from writing a Spike movie . . .

In other news, I'm so incredibly ambivalent about the prospect of Neil Gaiman movies. Sandman and American Gods are two of the best things I've ever read. And yet . . . the possibility of ruining them by making them into crappy films is so substantial. Probably best to leave them alone.

I know it's just because I never saw Firefly (on at Midnight here and constantly taken off, yada yada) but, yeah, I can't feel anything for Serenity.

And I hear you on the losing Whedon to cinema thing. In the land of television he was different. He had grand visions and, despite only actually liking Buffy, I can see how others can love his other work.

The only guy that I can think who is like Whedon is J.J. Abrams but I don't like Alias or Lost and Felicity was only good for about 2.5 seasons.
