/Yeah yeah, welcome to Fark

I have always hated that movie, the special effects are well done this is true but the whole basic premise of the movie is just dumb. Why would anyone strive so hard to be yet another boyfriend to someone who has such awful taste in other people?

Is he trying to rescue Ramona from her own for choices? Admittedly I haven't seen it since the one time it was shown to me at a friend's house years ago.

Michael J Faux: Michael Cera has great comic timing and I like him in a lot of things but Scott Pilgrim would have been better if the guy who played Young Neil was the lead. Most of the other casting was on-point and I liked the movie overall.

Oh Hollywood.


Michael Cera was the second youngest actor in the movie. He was twenty to twenty-one while filming, so he was actually playing older. Brie Larson was the youngest at nineteen and Brandon Routh was the oldest at twenty-nine. I only know this because I had just recently seen a YouTube video about Scott Pilgrim where they detail a lot of small details you don't notice.

I dunno, that feels like a trick question.

Do you mean more of the movie, which was a generic adventure flick about a child going on an adventure of mild self-improvement that makes him slightly more of an adult at the end?  I feel like we have more of that, that movie was literally every generic children's adventure movie ever made.

... or do you mean more of the comic, which was an utterly bleak, nihilistic black comedy about how everything is useless and anyone claiming otherwise is just being stupidly overdramatic, about a cast of characters that are uniformly genuinely horrible people and the ultimate "moral of the story" is that self-improvement is a malicious lie you tell yourself and no amount of life experience will ever make you any better... it makes you slightly worse, if anything?  Because we have more of that too, I can stream "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" while playing super mario whenever I want.

What's not to like about a mumbling hipster stalking a woman at her job so he can cheat on the underage girl he was trying to fark?

Book 3 was fantastic, and they mostly flubbed it in the movie. Book 4 was okay, book 5 kind of sucked, and that bore rotten fruit at the end of the movie. But Chris Evans and Brandon Routh farking nailed it. Envy was one of the most interesting characters in any of the books, and she was barely in the movie.
