Which was done with permission and approval of Bryan Lee O'Malley, in case anyone was wondering.

I'm super stoked for this film. Edgar Wright has yet to make a movie that I have not loved with every fiber of my soul, and this may in fact be a Crowning Moment Of Awesome for everyone involved.

Time shall tell...

Bought it. It's ludicrously fantastic.

It's shipping to my house as we speak. Very excited for both things.

This is the first I've heard that the last three volumes wouldn't be included, but I'm not sad; I was wondering how the heck they were going to fit in all the stuff that happens in them. Other than the mystery of Ramona's glowing face and that glimpse Scott gets of her in subspace, they feel less story-driven and more "lots of crazy stuff happens".

Probably the moment I'm looking forward to the most is the fight between Knives and Ramona in the Toronto Reference Library.waii

EDIT: Okay, it came! And wow... it's huge. O_o Probably 1.5 times the size of any of the others. Sweet.

Hmm... the sixth book kind of left me a bit cold. Maybe it's because it uses so much symbolism. I think I read it too fast, I need to do a re-read.

Do tell, Roundy. I'm beating myself up for not going back this year, just because of Scott Pilgrim.

Part of me wants to degrade this as an indie movie trying to be good based entirely on "uniqueness" BUT MOST OF ME JUST WANTS IT TO BE AMAZING SO BADLY BECAUSE IT LOOKS SO AWESOME.

Also apparently they finally made a way to make Michael Cera cute without taking away the awkward, yay. Next step: put in non-awkward role, keep awkward appearance. PROGRESS.

First, sorry for not telling earlier, but I've been at Comic Con the whole day and the internet is crap. Also, the fight scenes will blow your goddamn face right the hell off.

The Evil Scott subplot was resolved in the greatest way possible. (I don't know how it worked out in the book, but in the movie at least it was hilarious)

The acting is spot-on and the editing perfectly translates the fast-paced nature of the comics.

It isn't very faithful to the books except for the first one, however. This is excusable for 4-6 since they weren't written when the script was being done, but books 2 and 3 have no excuse. (But you will not care because it is so epic.)

And yes, it is as funny as the trailers have led you to beleive.

I swear, Comic Con really loves me this year.

First, I become one of the select few who get to see the World Premiere for the Epicest film in the history of the Universe, and then the day after that Dave Gibbons signs a piece of FREE software that I got just because they liked what I did at the demo booth.

I'm excited about this movie and I've never even read the comic, seeing as none of my local libraries have Volume 1 as far as I know.

Every time my dad and I go to the movies, I point out the Scott Pilgrim poster near the ticket counter and tell him it's (hopefully) going to be really good, but I always get cut off and all he ever says is something to the effect of "Oh great, another Michael Cera movie..."

Just saw an ad for the movie on AMC that amusingly tried to pretend that it was a romantic comedy and not at all a whimsical piece of Crazy Awesome that runs on video game physics.

Finishing the last volume restored my faith in storytelling. I loved it.

Absolutely can not wait for the film.
