The Katanyagi twins fight scene always gives me goosebumps
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.
I just read the comic, and watched the movie. Both are so good.
Ps: Passive raters not posting have no souls....
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.
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.
You do realize that the movie was being made during the creation of Volumes 5 & 6 right?
I saw the film before I read the comic books... :ohdear:
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.

Look in the Upper Right hand corner
As for the art, I guess that's more or less opinion.
This movie was charming. And Ramona reminded me a lot of my first girlfriend from her facial features.
I want Vegan COPS as a spinoff show.
Just finished reading the comics. I have no words to describe it.
I liked it.
Deal with it.
My cool new poster, Yes/No?
Would like one in color.
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.
Interesting note (that I totally forgot to mention) is that when I had Pascall draw my Derp Dergon avatar, that I had it based on Nega-Scott.
Here is where I got mine from and its a lot cheaper then that linked one. Does not seem to have the poster I bought on there though but has some new sexy ones I might get also.
Wait no I lied, here is where I got mine from.
I need this
Those are awesome. I'd totally get one if I had the money.
Bought the first book (Precious Little Life) It's so awesome to read the books, and seeing that the film resembles the books really good.
