Interesting metaphor, what?

This probably wasn't what Joss had in mind: Mark Steyn saves the political analysis for the very end of his Serenity review, and as an added bonus, has some unkind things to say about the Viggo Mortenson vehicle A History of Violence. Steyn also has an excellent memorial to James Doohan, which is very much worth reading.

Via Ed Driscoll, who is largely indifferent to what may be the best SF movie this year.

Soooooo, forgive me, but what jumped up this guy's butt before he wrote that review? So far as I can tell it boils down to "Browncoats is a stupid name that has background I didn't pick up on. Also, the cast all have stupid real names. But I guess it's better than Star Wars. FARKING EUROPEAN UNION!" o.O

By Jove, I think that's the best summary of a Mark Steyn review I've ever seen. ^^

I got the impression he liked it, myself, or at least didn't hate it as enthusiastically as the last (thank God) Star Wars excrescence. Could be that Steyn's an acquired taste, kind of like P.J. O'Rourke except less drunken Irish and more expat Anglo-Canadian, heavy on the Anglo.
