5 Joss Whedon must watches
Share This Article:
Joss Whedon is a director who is inescapable in today’s Hollywood, but do you know some of his more obscure creations? In honour of the cult-classic director’s birthday on June 23rd, here’s a list of five picks from his catalogue of hits that you really need to catch up on. Now it goes without saying that I recommend Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Avengers: Assemble, but those are pretty obvious choices which you should really have already watched. Here are some less known watches. 1) Firefly Now this show may be beloved in certain communities, but there are still so many people who have yet to try it out. I’ve heard it described as Westworld in space, and aside from the robots that’s a pretty good summary. If you’re into gorgeous worlds and intriguing characters with hidden depths, and are okay with a slower pace then I’d really recommend it. The life of this little gem of a show was sadly cut short, but the next entry into this list more than made up for this fact. 2) Serenity After watching the entirety of Firefly, I was craving more of Mal and his crew so turned to the sequel that was released 3 years after the series aired. (Thank goodness this is possible in our binge-watching, TV streaming age.) I wasn’t disappointed by the silver screen reboot, and I even liked it more than its originator. Its scope was widened, now that it wasn’t restricted to a TV budget, and it managed to evoke everything the series had and more. Even if you haven’t watched the series I’d recommend this film, though the emotional connection I had with the characters was definitely forged through the hours I’d spent with them previously in Firefly.
