As far as I am concerned Joss Wheden could write the ingredients to shampoo and I would be enthralled. A movie about grass growing, written by Joss Wheden?? Sweet! I’m in.
His television shows and movies have created some of the best heroines in modern movies. Case in point: Zoe, Buffy, Melinda May and I am sure the list goes on and on. If anyone were to bust the stereotype that female action stars can’t bring in the big bucks at the movie theaters, he would be the one to do it.
Another great thing about his movies that he creates a fantastic Anti-Hero (See Firefly or Doctor Horrible’s Sing Along for an example of this). His heroes are compelling and flawed and so very incredibly human that we can’t help but fall in love with them.
Whether it’s because he is a fanboy himself or that he just has a brilliant way of writing, I don’t care. He’s good and his style works.
What’s your favorite Joss Wheden creation?
