    Wish I could've seen this movie while it was in the theaters. Got it when it came out on Blu-ray/DVD and loved every minute of it. Guess my wife noticed, because she somehow managed to cram all six books into my stocking on Christmas morning.

    I somehow managed to get my DVD quite a few days ago, which I was quite happy about.

    So I've seen the DVD in places I wouldn't expect; two of my brothers each had it (they didn't know it was a comic, prior), and one of my friends here has it. At least they don't crucify me for taking issues with the movie.

    So yeah, I finished reading all six books and I watched all the deleted scenes last night.

    Wow.

    First off, I hated the alternate ending. So I'm glad they didn't use it. And while I think Mr. Wright made the right decision in cutting down the scenes where Ramona delivers the Amazon package as well as the date scene, I did get a little glee from the extended versions.

    Also, the books were excellent. I don't think either version dilutes the other. Two totally different things, when you really think about it. And the movie ending was perfect. Very...

    The Knives ending would of been much better.

    It would of shown that Scott can finally let go of his pasts mistakes (which Romona represents) and move forward with his life.

    the knives ending bothers me because scott treats knives like shit the entire movie and if she takes him back then she's really failed to grow as a character at all

    and also because ramona ends up completely getting the shaft for no good reason

    He keeps her at a distance when she's clearly interested in more. It's not necessarily poor treatment but it's not good treatment either.

    To be fair, I assumed one of the reasons he kept her at a distance was because he didn't want his ass hauled off to jail. Mind you, I have no idea what the age of consent is in Canada, how worked up Canadians are about this sort of thing (but then, the movie was made primarily with American audiences intended,) or how important statutory rape laws are in a universe where murder is so damn casual. But I assumed Knives bringing up her birthday right after Scott had to dump her was there for a reason.

    "My 'Secret Lair' is kinda one of those 'no girls allowed' type deals"

    it pretty clear right there that he's not actually interested in Knives, so much as the idea of having a girl interested inhim

    uhm...no I don't think so.

    it's because Scott likes the idea of being in a relationship but is not emotionally ready to do so, nor is he truly interested in Knives

    That's obviously Scott's treatment of the relationship, but i think the 17-year old aspect factored in as well. Certainly his friends wouldn't have freaked out as much if he kept on talking about the nineteen year old he was dating. I'd say it served as an excuse. He could say he's not really involved in the relationship because of her age, but in reality it's like you guys said; he didn't care about her so much as just being in a relationship in the first place.

    Yes but it's not because it's illegal.

    Saw this again Thursday night with 3 people who hadn't seen it. One of whom I was unsuccessful in convincing to go see it when it was out in theaters because he was really turned off by the trailer for whatever reason, and I all I had to go on for reasons was hype I'd absorbed from you guys.

    Having seen it once and armed with some knowledge (he was really impressed by the fact that they physically swapped the sets in the bathroom scene, he loves behind the scenes movie stuff) I was able to convince him to give it a chance. They all had a blast.

    http://www.cbc.ca/canada/story/2008/05/01/crime-bill.html

    For the record, age of consent in Canadia is 16, up from 14, where it was up until 2008 (well after the first few volumes of Scotty P. were written).

    Oh thank God, I've been waiting forever!

    Knives is really tough. Like, tougher than Kim, but not as tough as Stills. I figured she'd be the quickest out of all of them, but then again I haven't maxed out her stats yet so I guess we'll just wait and see.

    I'm also happy that I can enjoy this game without it freezing on me. Got to invite friends over sometime this week to play it with me.

    So I finally saw the original 'alternate' ending to Scott Pilgrim vs the World. I liked it.

    Personally I felt that the ending itself was more "put together" than the one they went with. The Stacy Pilgrim phone conversation voice over, the slow-mo final game of Ninja Ninja Revolution, Romana's admission that she admired Knives, etc. Plus with the way that Ramona was presented in the movie, I don't feel like it's too much of a stretch that Scott would chose Knives over her, especially after realizing how devoted Knives had been to him. Also, some of the stuff they removed was really great and I'd wished they'd kept it.

    * The 1-Up teleporting him back to him walking in on Wallace
    * Scott calling Gideon the second time around
    * Wallace's reaction to said phone conversation. Balls. Haha.

    That stuff was more for pacing than anything. Yeah it's good but audience fatigue sets in if you have the last 20 minutes you watched get replayed again.

    The bit where Scott explains the hero's journey was funny but it would have completely killed the movie for most people.

    I didn't dig as much even aside from the Knives bit at the end, myself.

    I mean, the Stacey conversation and the Hero's journey joke undermined one of my favorite things about Scott Pilgrim.

    All the crazy stuff is pretty much mundane. Sure, this is the biggest event in Scott's life, probably, but that's due to the relationship and the scale of the violence. The fact he kicked a dude in the head so hard he exploded is just another reason he's the best fighter in Ontario. Everyone being shocked works against that.

    I saw this a while ago, having almost no knowledge of what it was about, except that it had Michael Cera playing a different role than normal. It started off being a pretty decent comedy, but nothing new, although the editing was pretty good. Then Matthew Patel turns up, and what the fuuuuck.
    I've seen it around 5 times now in the last couple of weeks, and it is without a doubt my favourite movie of recent memory. Just ordered that big boxset of the comics, and the bluray, just need to grab the game now, but I think I'll leave that till after the comic.
    I've recommended it to a few people, but nobody else has seemed to care for it that much. I loved things like

    Same.

    Wait, no. I may have the box set. I may have the color special. But I still am missing the plush toys and several other items of merchandise.

    Need to get on that.
