    I happened to just have gotten a copy just yesterday, watched it twice today. Man, such a cool movie!

    I hope they make a sequel soon.

    The comics were cool, too, and I heard they are making the second "book", so maybe there'll be a sequel in a year or so.

    I saw this movie a while ago on my DS (needless to say, not the best quality). I liked it, I didn't love it.

    If you like that go watch Scott Pilgrim vs The World. Both pretty awesome movies.

    It was a pretty good film, very funny and entertaining.
    I really liked the humour, it really made me laugh a lot.

    I have to watch the movie, but I think he was telling her what to do. Don't quote me on that though.

    Seriously? IMHO Chloe Moretz stole the whole film.

    EDIT: How dare I misquote the great hit-girl???

    This and Scott Pilgrim are my favourite movies of 2010. The movie just worked perfectly. I was expecting a parody of Super Hero movies but what I got was brutal, true and damned funny in places.

    Scott Pilgrim is fucking terrible.

    It's basically Twilight, for gamers instead of 12 year-old girls. Paper-thin plot drizzled on top of a spongey loaf of fan service.





    Kick Ass however was a pretty good adaptation of the graphic novel. I enjoyed it thoroughly.

    Whoops. You have a point.



    BTW...

    IMDB says they've announced the sequel. Cool, something out there to wait for.

    That distinction is not relevant to my point at all.

    I'm pretty sure Scoot Pilgrim doesn't mess up it's references though, unlike, say, sparkly vampires. And wasn't it made by like a big gamer/fan? That prob explains it. I will prob get this movie when I see a decent copy pop up.

    Sure it is. You don't mention a paper thin story if it's MEANT to be like that. But then again, I never saw the movie, I just read the graphic novels, so you could be right, and it could be an abomination like Twilight.

    Except for your argument to be valid, there would have to be something of value present as a substitute for plot, excusing it's absence.

    Having barely managed to churn through the first two novels, I can say with all confidence that there is nothing of value present in those pages.

    Are we seriously using spoilers for Kick-Ass? Shit, might as well use spoilers for the first Spider-Man film.

    Also, Scott Pilgrim is an amazing film, I'm a huge fan of Edgar Wright.

    Technically, video games are a creation of fiction too. Dracula is actually a bit more real than say, Mario, because he was based more-or-less on this crazy dude in Transylvania (Vlad teh Impaler). I can understand changing some of it if it is for the sake of continuity, but sparkling is just, I dunno, way too lame for a plot device, and more of a "look this is a non-threatening vampire, 15 year-olds" thing. I think the only time they used it for any effect was when he was gonna go out butt-naked (so I've heard) in the middle of some city somewhere, and he'll get punished for it.

    Anyway, that's not the point. I'm off to wait for the sequel (hopefully really soon) to kick-ass.

    Well, that's your opinion. I enjoyed all 6 (the first 2 are a bit slow, I do admit), and got all the references just fine, even the obscure onces like "THAC0", which most gamers wouldn't get.
