You Can't Take the Sky from Me

Firefly Rewind - Serenity (the motion picture) -

"Joss had worked in movies before as a screenwriter, but never had control over what the director would do with his ideas. ('Buffy' the series was in a way seven years of Joss giving a middle finger to Fran Rubel Kuzui, and I remember mentioning 'Alien: Resurrection' once to him and Joss wincing at what Jean-Pierre Jeunet had done to his script.) And he had directed episodes of his shows, but always on a TV schedule and (relatively low for the medium) budget. 'Serenity' wasn't a budget-buster for Universal or anything, but the scale of it was vastly bigger than anything Whedon had had full control over before, and his joy at getting to play with his new toys is palpable."

This review got starred in my twitter stream but got pushed down the list as I was adding new feeds and favoriting a bunch of tweets. (I use favorites just to hold on to stuff I want to read later, then un-favorite once I'm caught up.) If you haven't read it yet, it is an interesting take on the "does Serenity stand on it's own?" question. Better late than never.
