richard kelly

I sort of hate that the second release from Richard Kelly is Domino - which looks pretty terrible. I guess it could be a quality action flick but from the look of it, I'd say probably not. But then again, everyone has been telling me that Serenity is worth seeing.. despite the fact that I just simply can not believe such a thing.


  • Serenity is awesome...definitely go check it is worth it. Domino looks really terrible and Tony Scott (who seems to have lost his mind) directed it, so I don't think a script from Richard Kelly will mean much in the hands of a madman.

  • Serenity is definately not worth seeing. I had sneak preview tickets, so it was free but I wouldn't pay $7-8 to see it. I had never watched the TV show before. There were some funny lines, but there was nothing really original at all about the story or the characters, and the production design looked really low budget. Came across as a TV show that was stretched out across 2 hours. I guess if you are a fan of the TV show you would enjoy it, but I wouldn't recommend it for anyone else.

  • Serenity was made because Joss felt it would be a disservice to fan of Firefly to just leave them hanging. Fox killed the show before it could get off the ground (namely airing the pilot episode as the last of 12 episodes aired) Seriously, what's up with that?

    Previously I didn't like anything that he made, but I'll call myself a fan of the show and of the movie. But I can also see how the movie wasn't "good" to the mass audience because it did feel like a TV show, because it was a TV show. He just wanted a way to wrap up the show and answer some questions that were left in the air at the end of the series.

    I would like to hear more opinions from people who hadn't seen the show.

  • The movie definitely served to wrap up the show, but I feel like they did a pretty good job of making it work as it's own movie and it's own story, even if it does seem low budget for a feature...I still give it my highest reccomendation.
