No Joss Whedon for Buffy Movie?

Yes, I’m late to this particular party; and yes, it was Joss Whedon’s own decision… still.  Why precisely do they expect me to go watch it, without the cast OR the director?

Hey, fun game. Which was better: Once More, With Feeling, The Body, or Hush? I mean, obviously it was Once More, With Feeling – but I suppose that I should give other people a chance to justify their choice.
