    Sci-fi western… if Firefly couldn’t make it work, I don’t have high hopes for this either :( That being said, it still looks awesome so I’ll take my chances and check it out

      We’re out there – lol! Yul Brynner scared the crap out of me in the film when i was a kid. But then, to a little kid, I think Yul Brynner was kind of scary in general. LOL!

    Well I won’t be watching it, too much graphic sex scenes. Don’t really get why they need to throw that in.. dont need to see that.
