Serenity


ISBN: 1416502882
813.54
Novelization of the film by the same name.

Where do you start when you go to write a novelization? Do you just stick to the script, or go off on little tangents of your own? How much can you make up, do you get to collaborate with the director, or talk to any of the actors? Must be pretty hard, imo, to get a good book out of a film, any film.

And I suppose, even more so with Serenity. After all, Joss is god, so how could anyone else do anything but struggle to reinterpret his ‘verse?

This is not a good read, too much of it is like bad fan fiction, only without the benefit of mad sidelines and impossible storylines. I suppose we all have our versions of what goes on inside the characters’ heads, but I rarely agreed with what DeCandido put there.

Who’s on first

Serenity that’s who. Top of the box office in the Uk, and in Ireland. So go us. In other news was listening to the radio on my way to work last week and heard this song that I just loved. Haven’t heard it since, but I was still humming it this evening. So took a […]

Repetition is the reality and the seriousness of life.

Yesterday was Serenity Day, as previews opened. Hence the non-posting, because I didn’t want to bore you all with my, “OMG! Serenity Now!”. But here I am posting about it again, and there is nothing you can do to stop me. Mwha Ha Ha, and other such noises. It was Screen One again, but hopefully […]

You know, apart from the storyline, characters and acting :) Because the film is coming out soon, or is already out depending on where you live, there is a shit load of reviews and interviews floating around the web. And in one super-long, 9,500 word long […]

Aiming to misbehave

Edited There is a new, and freaky, looking Australian poster for Serenity. Reminds me of the C4 freaky dancing Lost ads[1] click here to see for yourself. Chud don’t think much of the poster, saying to them it looks like a film about dance. Which I suppose ties in to my freaky Lost ad[2] theory. […]

I am overthrown

There are times in life when one really despairs of mankind[1] . Today I went to see The Dukes of Hazzard. In a way I was looking for a shite film. I mean, after Serenity any film was bound to suffer, but OMFG Dukes is the worst excuse for entertainment I have seen in a […]
