so the Scott Pilgrim movie is out

and getting murdered in the box office

it's a damn shame, because pretty much everyone who's seen it here has liked it, and you should probably see it too!

so let's keep talking about it

    I think this movie will pick up box office results as word of mouth gets around.
    I hope it does.

    Oh damn that kinda sucks.

    I read somewhere yesterday that Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz had similar rocky starts and the following weeks they picked up more. So that'll probably happen this time around maybe.

    Maybe they should have picked an actor who is not inherently boring.

    Michael Cera did absolutely fine in this

    He actually turned out to be pretty much as perfect as everyone else was for their respective roles

    Especially Brandon Routh, holy shit

    I think at one point someone who hadn't read it just said that and then it became a thing

    because that doesn't makes sense at all

    it's good animes

    Michael Cera did better than I thought he would. He wasn't reprising the role of himself as he usually does.

    have you actually seen the movie, or just the trailers?'

    yeah, sure the trailers were ehh for anyone that hasn't read all the books a billion times, but don't talk about it as though you've seen more than that

    You're right, I prefer to have my movies half-assed by a bunch of people pretending it's no big deal that millions of dollars are being invested in a commercial work of art.

    Also, I knew dick all about this franchise before watching the movie tonight. I also wish I could drown all hipsters ever. After watching it I have no idea how anybody could call it a product of hipsterdom.
    Especially since Scott spends the later part of the movie telling hipsters to go fuck themselves.
