    Midnight is generally considered to be part of the night of the preceeding day, even though it's technically very really morning of the following day.

    Maybe the best adaptation of an entire comic franchise into a single movie I've ever seen

    (YES THAT IS A VERY NARROW PLAYING FIELD)

    Still though, that movie worked, and it worked well. Edgar Wright did incredible things with the timeframe he was alloted. Admittedly my brain is all twisted from it being more of a... well, more of a videogame than a movie...

    /edit that Fan review is wishing for gold. There is zero way that Wright could have done more with Scott Pilgrim and kept it a faithful adaption within the amount of time that movie had. Zero way.

    Eh, I thought it dragged on, the 12 or so endings irritated me. I guess it wasn't that bad, at it's core, but It wasn't more than mediocre for me.

    Hmm, I was worried that they wouldn't have time to deal with all the relationship with all the exes in one film.

    Have to tone down my foaming at the mouth a little bit.

    Just in case it might disappoint

    You talking about the stilted ending of the film?

    Cause...they changed the ending. I don't know when, perhaps it was during the drafting process, but a leaked draft was on the net for a while and it was a bit bizarre. I thought it was one of those fake drafts but the stuff that happens in it was confirmed as the original ending (gonna be on the DVD, as well) for the movie.

    It was written from a very feminist viewpoint, but I don't think it was bullshit at all. I think it had some very legitimate complaints about relationships and how women are treated in movies. In fact, some of her direct complaints about Ramona I've seen echoed directly in this thread previously.

    But she doesn't like the movie, so it must be feminist bullshit.

    So I played the game last night

    A few things of note: Playing it with a Rock Band Guitar is really hard, but doable. Using specials I couldn't figure out though.

    My fiancee and I played on the hardest setting because we thought we were baller

    Getting beaten by Patel was....embarassing

    re: Bionic Monkey

    I think the books do a pretty decent job of addressing most of her complaints.
    Ramona isn't a "cipher" there, IMO, and has a pretty clear personality. She also seems pretty fed up with the whole evil ex-boyfriend thing most of the time, and often regards the situation with some distance and disdain. She compels Scott to skip his fight "date" with Todd, for example.

    And in the books, Ramona does have to fight each of Scott's exes, excepting Kim. (But Lisa is sort of a cipher for Kim as far as the "high-school ex" thing goes, and while Ramona doesn't physically fight her there is definitely a conflict there.)

    And finally, book six does a really good job of demonstrating how Scott was being an asshole when he treated the women in his life as objects to be won or lost. (I.e. the revisionist history re: Simon Lee and his relationship with Envy, how he propositioned each of his exes in an effort to win them back). Scott had to give up those childish, misogynistic ideas of love and relationships before he could fight Gideon -- who, as a villain, is a great foil precisely because he clings so strongly to those childish, misogynistic ideas of love.

    I haven't seen the movie, though, and from I understand pretty much all of those story elements have been excised due to time constraints. So I guess I can see where she's coming from in describing the movie...?

    Saw the movie yesterday.


    SO GOOD


    Also, they apparently filmed a scene right outside my old girlfriend's apartment. And Michael Cera sat in my usual seat at the Pizza Pizza on Bloor and Bathurst. *fist pump*


    Definitely go see this movie if you live in Toronto. It was awesome seeing everything from Tortilla Flats and the Second Cup on Queen & Portland to the Green Beanery and Insomnia on Bloor. So goddamn cool.

    Hm, I'll have to see about the movie, but I thought the books did a decent job of making it clear that yeah, Scott was a bit of an oblivious dick much of the time.

    I can see disliking it, though. I mean my friend hated the books because he just personally disliked Scott too much to read them. I like how accurately useless Scott is.

    And I mean the heart of the thing to me is getting over your initial stupidity in a relationship and treating the other person like a person.

    This is pretty damn true. Scott often acts like a awkward jackass due to his inability to get out of the smitten stage in a relationship. Straddling the line between agoraphobic, socially-inept recluse and party-craving hipster is a tall glass of water.

    'Scott Pilgrim' Versus The Unfortunate Tendency To Review The Audience:
    But I have to say to those reviewing it: what's completely unnecessary is being hostile and condescending about the target audience — and I can say that, because I'm emphatically not part of it.

    After referring to the first part of the movie as a "dork-pandering assault," The Boston Phoenix reviewer goes on to say that Michael Cera's performance is "irritating" in part because of "the non-stop Pavlovian laugh track provided by the audience at the screening I attended." (As far as I know, that's a first: "You made the audience laugh, you irritating actor in a comedy, and that's what's wrong with you.")
    Hating Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is perfectly fine. It's got a style; you sort of embrace it and dig it or you don't. But when there's too much effort given to tut-tutting the people you imagine to be enjoying it, or declaring and promising that only narrow categories of losers and non-life-havers and other stupid annoying hipsters could possibly be having a good time when you're not, it sounds pinched and ungenerous. And, not to put too fine a point on it, a little bit jealous and fearful of obsolescence.

    Here's what I'm saying: I'm a woman, I'm in my late thirties, I can't handle first-person shooters, I'm afraid of Comic-Con, and I really, really liked Scott Pilgrim vs. The World.

    I hope I'm not, you know, blowing your mind.

    I find the movie, from the very start, almost forced you to give up any pretentiousness about the jokes, the target audience, the characters, etc. It was very unapologetiC, and it really pushed you to just let go and enjoy the damn movie. Really one of the best things I liked about the movie.

    This has already probably been shared:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P7Wu34McEGE

    But that trailer/preview has convinced me more than any of the others that the lead actor can convincingly pull off more than just his other (possibly type cast) characters in previous movies/entertainment he has been a part of. Why did they even have to only show the parts from the movie in the other trailers that seemed to only show the character from Superbad part deux?
