  Has anybody seen Scott Pilgrim vs. The World? Thoughts?

  I'm totally in lesbians with it! Soundtrack, too.

Best of all was the meta-Canadian humour.

  I'm starting to wish that comic books were never made into films.

I was disappointed by

Watchmen
V for Vendetta
Ghost World
Spiderman 1-3
X-men 1-3
Anything with Superman in it

  hmm pressed post a little early there...

Also

Daredevil
Anything with the Punisher in it
Anything where Kevin smith does anything about Superheroes.


I did enjoy

Kick Ass (though i don't think it's as great as everyone says)
American Splendour (which I guess is cheating a little)


Anyway those movies ticked me off so much I will not watch any of them now, no Hulk, No Iron Man and probably no Scott Pilgrim.

I thought it was good but to me Hit Girl was why I liked it at all.

You'll probably be pissed off at it anyways. It did change pieces of the story and make some characters do things that they hadn't in the comics. That said I found it to be pretty awesome. Kieran Culkin as Wallace couldn't have been more perfectly cast. The same goes with really the whole cast.

Me too! :) Who is your favorite character from the movie or comic? Mine is a tie with Wallace and Kim from either book or movie. I would have liked it if they kept the whole Kim and Ramona thing in but I guess some stuff had to be cut due to time and plot simplicity.

:D I loved Gideon's line about Scott's complaint over his club. XD

Hmmm i was sucked into it all when Dark Night came out but i would never watch any of them again. Maybe the first Michael Keaton one from the 90s, but i never even liked that as a kid.

Truth be told, i hate batman as a character fullstop, I never understood why he's so interesting, also I'm not a big fan of these super heroes without powers, the power is half the fun.

That said i do love the Adam West show, but you'd need a comic book gland full of bile not to like that.

A Bat fan i see!!

I don't really have a favourite hero, i used to like Wolverine as a kid but ultimately he ends up being as repetitive as a run of Harrison Ford movies where his family get kidnapped.

I always wanted shape shifting as my power, when i was a kid I even invented a storyline about a character called Pitch an immensely powerful shapeshifter who pissed off all the heroes who knew of his existence by using his power to party hard and be deliberately ellusive when he was needed for something. someone big in the superhero was going to call him a coward and he was going to kick their asses in an instance and give them a ticking off for encouraging him to become a super vigilante or a government operative. I never did anything with it though.


I like John Constantine (and by that i mean tine as in sounds like time not teen, I'm all about the Sting version and not the Keanu one)

Also Morpheus from the Sandman

They're not real superheroes i guess.

  My fave comic book superhero was always Thor.
I expect the movie is gonna suck.
