    Did anyone else here think that when Kim said: "Scott, if your life had a face I'd punch it." was a reference to Facepunch?

    I absolutely hated the comic book, but I tried watching the movie.

    Didn't like it either. Michael Cera cannot act, and needs to stop trying.

    Biggest problem I had with the ending was    Stephen Stills not being gay.   

    Comic book spoilers.
    Well considering there was no    Joseph    It wouldn't make much sense

    Stop acting? What the hell are you talking about? It was one question, and a valid one too I think. The movie is chock full of references, so it's only fair that if you catch it to ask a question about it. It's not like I was definitively saying it was a reference.

    I felt like the video game references were kind of half assed. There was some zelda music a couple of times and a bunch of 8 bit noises but that's really it. I felt like it was stylized and matched the comic, but just not as good as I was expecting. Still worth a watch.

    I loved it. It was pretty awesome. Though I still don't believe that one movie can do the comic justice. I still don't know why they didn't split into AT LEAST two.

    If they had, then there would have been two flops, rather than one.

    I believe it would have been better. They wouldn't have had to forcibly shove and condense the entirety of the comic into one movie. Allowing them to incorporate more characters and situations from the comic.

    There was too much in the comics to have all of it in a single film, I agree, but the way I see it if they'd put everything into two films, it would have felt more drawn-out. In some aspects, shortening the story was a good thing - i.e. the Katayanagi Twins fight; in the books it went on for too long and was kind of boring, but in the film, that five or six minute BotB sequence was one of the best moments of all.

    Really, I think they did the film pretty well. There were references to the characters left out in the film, like Lisa (when Julie mentions her name at the party) and Gideon the Cat (on Scott's mug in the beginning), which meant that they could leave them out and have casual viewers not even really know they were there, making the film shorter, whilst simultaneously giving something for the fans to watch out for and smile knowingly to themselves when they spotted the references.

    If they'd made both films simultaneously, then maybe it could have been good. But the amount of money needed to do that would be far greater than what they had at their disposal - if they'd tried it, they probably could have, but you'd be kissing a lot of the more expensive SFX goodbye. No dragons vs. the yeti in the Katayanagi sequence, or anything like that. If they'd tried making the first, then used the money they got from that to make the second, then they ran the risk of only having one part of a film released, bombing at theatres, and not having the money available to make the second one - since Scott Pilgrim isn't exactly aimed towards a mainstream audience, they probably thought that the risk was too great (and rightly so, after how badly it did in the theatres).

    I think they did the right thing. I love the film.

    I agree with the Katayanagi Twins, but I really wish the Gideon Battle was more like the one in the comics. They at least could have had more people at the Chaos Theatre, but whatever.

    Yeah, I see what you mean now. Eh, I guess I'm just a fanboy who wants a movie exactly like the comic. I know that's not possible but I can still dream.

    Same here, but it was actually the movie that pushed my interest towards the comics, so I have the film to thank for that.

    I thoroughly enjoyed both the movie and the comics. I thought I wouldn't, considering that I don't really care for Michael Cera, but I think he did a pretty good job of portraying Scott.

    My only issue is that I don't remember Stephen Stills being so whiny in the comics as he was in the movies. He seemed to panic in the film... a lot. :raise:

    Perhaps they were trying to imply that Stephen was in fact secretly gay, since they couldn't fit the character of Joseph into the film, by over-exaggerating the more girly aspects of the character. I wouldn't be surprised at all if Edgar Wright had told him that Stephen was secretly gay, and to try to work that into his performance.

    Ya' know, I hadn't actually thought of that. If that's the case, then I suppose that's pretty clever right there.

    Except the part where Scott is shown to be a piece of shit slacker that will often alienate his friends for shitty reasons.

    Edited:

    As for the art, I guess that's more or less opinion.

    I thought Scott was a two-faced jerk to his friends and girlfriends who could never take responsiblility for his own mistakes or faults and lied constantly. He ran away from his problems and tried to forget them so often that they actually manifested themselves as a demonic version of him. That was sort of the whole point of the Negascott subplot in the comics. The whole thing is essentially a story about growing up and taking responsibility for yourself as an adult.

    The movie was definitely one of my favorites, and it was actually a rare instance in which I thought the movie was better than the books. I was able to visualize the fight scenes and retro video game effects a bit more easily in film form.
