    I'm debating if I want to read the book because after reading Wikipedia it doesn't seem they're too similar.

    I can't really respond to any of the posts in this thread yet since I won't be seeing the movie until next week, and Goddamnit if I'm going to spoil it for myself after a three-week self-imposed media embargo after Book 6 came out (I had pre-ordered it along with Kick-Ass on Blu-Ray thinking they would be at my house when I returned from summer school. I was WRONG).

    Once I finally got my hands on the book I burned through it in 35 minutes. :oops:

    However I did not know that the game was coming out so soon. Now that I do, I am going to go run and grab that motherfucker RIGHT NOW.

    The actress actually sang the lyrics, however.

    Metric just played the instruments.

    Hell yes. Given they really changed those two fights they did a fantastic job of it.

    Frankly I could do with an entire movie just about bands/musicians battling like that.

    A trilogy is a terrible idea. Just no.

    If this was originally a movie, you would just not have as many evil exes. You could knock it down to like four or five, one for each act.

    But given that it was an adaptation, I think it's inevitable that the pacing would be not as organic.

    EDIT:

    I need a Scott Pilgrim ring tone. Anyone know of any?

    Saw the movie today. Thought it was good, not great, but very good. Anyway as i am leaving out the parking lot i see this van park near the end of a parking strip. It probably was there promotional purposes but it was still awesome.
    Sorry for the bad shots. It was my camera phone and i was too lazy to park and get out of my truck.

    I literally just got back from seeing the movie, and for something that had to boil down six books' worth of material into a feature film it was really well done. Shame they had to truncate and jettison the real "meat" of the whole thing (the Envy subplot was rushed and everything about Scott & Kim was just glossed over), but as a distillation of everything Scott Pilgrim - the vibe, the humor, all that stuff - Wright and co. did great. I think Cera could've used a bit more bravado in his voice instead of the soft spoken schtick he does; otherwise, good stuff.

    Man, I really wish they did more with Kim in that movie. Allison Pill did a perfect job with her general snarkiness (and she really did look the part), but again, they didn't have much time to work with, so I'll take what I can get. She's friggin' cute, too. Consider my love of all things Kim Pine cemented.

    Edit: Holy crap I just saw that Adult Swim short and they should totally make an animated version of the whole thing for the fans like that and sell it on DVD and that would just make the whole thing even better!!!111!!! [/incoherent run-on sentence]

    Look, you guys who think that this movie should have been made into a trilogy are silly geese.

    The source material would not have lent itself well to a trilogy. I think nobody would've cared after the first movie. This isn't Lord of the Rings, it's an indie comic book about a 22 year old slacker and his band.

    To add to this, if you think Universal (or any major motion picture company) would have invested the amount of capital needed to make this a trilogy, you belong in an insane asylum. That would be what's called a Bad Investment, no matter how much faith you have in the director.

    In short, it had some pacing issues, but when you compare the source material and the canvas in which to work with, I think they did the comics as much justice as they could.

    I just saw it. I haven't read any of the books (I may correct this at some point but my backlog is already huge).

    I loved it. Not for everyone and while the pacing was off at times it didn't detract from the film and, not being familiar with the source material, didn't feel like anything was left out.

    Going into the last act I was predicting the rumored original ending and dreading it, but by the end I would have actually been fine going that way, or the way the actually went. I certainly wasn't expecting references as obscure as Clash at Demonhead (or the Universal logo at the beginning... I loved that!).

    it wouldn't have made sense financially at all but ultimately the source material didn't really lend itself well to being compacted into a single movie either.

    I enjoyed the movie far more than the books, to be honest. Movie!Scott I enjoyed, whereas book!Scott I just wanted to push down a flight of stairs over and over again.

    Spoiler:

    Having just sat through my 1st and a half viewing (see last thread, page 101 or so for an explanation), that's bull. I went with one friend who had read half the books, two people who only saw the trailers and thought it would be "No More Heroes the Movie," and myself, who had been reading teasers and basics in this thread for a bit, enough to get the jist. I was in a mixed theater of newbies and people who had read the comics.

    Everyone seemed to be thoroughly enjoying themselves, laughing their asses off, and digging the characters. I know my friends loved it.

    I keep hearing people call it shallow. Yeah, well, to most people, our generation (and I'm speaking as a 28 year old who gets called a 23 year old all the time) seems shallow. It's really not.. we just have our own thing, our own idols, so on. While I may hate the Hot Topic movement to commercialize it, the seed and genesis of that stuff is still there. I know that when I meet "the one," I'll have my own baggage to deal with, if it isn't already stopping me from meeting her. It doesn't mean I won't try.
