The AV Club was kind enough to let me know that a Scott Pilgrim movie is in pre-production. I know it was supposed to be an awesome and quirky comic with hi-larious geek references, but all I got out of it is that Scott Pilgrim is a pathetic loser who I want to punch. Repeatedly. Also, it's lazy storytelling to just mention video games and expect the readers to say HEY I LIKE TO PLAY VIDEO GAMES TOO, THIS COMIC IS AWESOME. This, of course, just adds to my frustration with the lazy "hey, remember that thing that was funny/awesome that one time?" geek references that seem to be everywhere.

Maybe I can't complain too much since I only read the first volume of the comic, but it was so mediocre and frustrating that I didn't want to bother with the rest of it.

Just go read "Lost at Sea" instead. That had some high school angst in it but was done in a much more interesting and less self-absorbed way.


In more awesome film news: Coraline comes out on the 6th!
