Do or Do Not.

Invested

without comments

I don’t want to say too much about it yet, because I have other articles coming later and I don’t want to blow my wad too early, but seeing the sneak preview of Serenity four months early in a theater with 700 other people who worship Joss Whedon as I do and care about those characters as much as I do…that was a pretty amazing experience, I’ve gotta say. The entire audience was emotionally invested in what happened from the outset, and their reactions to both the good and to the very, very bad were heartfelt.

That’s the power of strong writing and honest characterization, and that’s a major reason why those we Whedon fans love him the way we do–it’s the major reason for me, and it’s one of the qualities I most want to achieve with my own writing. More to come on the subject later, both here and in my official review at Moviegeekz (hopefully coming Friday night).
