Libertarian Film Festival

I have yet to see Firefly, though it is in my Netflix queue. I would like to check it out before going to see Serenity, which is getting a great deal of buzz on SF and libertarian blogs.

Today an article about Serenity at Reason's Hit and Run led to some very interesting commentary about the libertarian themes in the original Firefly series. I am really getting psyched, and eagerly await the movie.

More fun than that, though, is this hilarious look at a fictional libertarian film festival, linked by Stevo Darkly in the comments there: Oscar Shrugged: The First Galt's Gulch Film Festival. You probably won't get it if you haven't read Atlas Shrugged.

If, however, you have. Click over there NOW. It is hilarious (and also led to me adding about 7 more movies to my queue).

I saw a couple of episodes of Firefly when it first came out, and it made no sense, so I gave up. Watched the first episode on SciFi Channel, and it made so much more sense. The trailers for Serenity look cool.

I haven't joined the Browncoats, though.

Firefly really should be watched and evaluated as a whole, all eleven hours; and of course in the proper sequence (as available on DVD). It's a great show.

We have a review of Firefly at Troynovant.
