Like most people have been saying: Saw this the other day, it was fucking awesome. Might have to check out the comics. Also that Rickenbacker Cera/Scott plays. Oh god, I'd sell my left foot if it meant I could get the money to buy a bass that sexy. I wouldn't mind some of his t-shirts either.
Does anyone have that animated .gif of Scott diving through the window?
[QUOTE=evlbzltyr;27456681]I found that you forget about the fact it's in black and white after a while.[/QUOTE] You were right, I completely forgot about the B&Wness up until when Knives dyed her hair, then I noticed again, but it's cool.
trippiest shit i've ever seen

Biggest problem I had with the ending was [sp]Stephen Stills not being gay.[/sp] Comic book spoilers.
Everyone has been talking about this film, so I watched it. It was decent, what's the hype?
[QUOTE=HyperTails;27559491]Everyone has been talking about this film, so I watched it. It was decent, what's the hype?[/QUOTE] I tihnk the hype was probably caused by the comics. This scene alone is enough reason to read them: [IMG]http://i291.photobucket.com/albums/ll320/Mysterypegnuin/146-147.png[/IMG] [IMG]http://i291.photobucket.com/albums/ll320/Mysterypegnuin/150-151.png[/IMG]
[QUOTE=Yumyumbublegum;27526653]I honestly did not like the movie, I didn't watch it all the way through. I got about halfway through and stopped because I was bored.[/QUOTE] I guess you could say..... It sucks to be you
-Snip- Due to passive raters...
[QUOTE=Scientwist;27590520]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?[/QUOTE] absolutely not
The Katanyagi twins fight scene always gives me goosebumps hnnnngggg
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.

[QUOTE=Scientwist;27590520]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? Because if it was, then Garry and the community here has achieved real greatness.[/QUOTE] :what: Stop acting like FP is this huge well known group.
[QUOTE=venn177;27559158]Biggest problem I had with the ending was [sp]Stephen Stills not being gay.[/sp] Comic book spoilers.[/QUOTE] Well considering there was no [sp]Joseph[/sp] It wouldn't make much sense
I just read the comic, and watched the movie. Both are so good.
[QUOTE=lead_farmer;27596105]:what: Stop acting like FP is this huge well known group.[/QUOTE] 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. 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.
[QUOTE=Jrwiley;27611933]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.[/QUOTE] If they had, then there would have been [I]two [/I]flops, rather than one.
[QUOTE=evlbzltyr;27611980]If they had, then there would have been [I]two [/I]flops, rather than one.[/QUOTE] 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.
[QUOTE=Jrwiley;27612099]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.[/QUOTE] 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.
You do realize that the movie was being made during the creation of Volumes 5 & 6 right?

They at least could have had more people at the Chaos Theatre, but whatever.
[QUOTE=Pops;27594289]you have no soul[/QUOTE] No, I just don't like comics with terrible artwork and Marty Stu protagonists.

I know that's not possible but I can still dream.
I saw the film before I read the comic books... :ohdear:
