I love Movie Bob and he's RIGHT on the goddamn money here.

For anyone who went to watch the shitty Fast and Furious sequel or The Expedables instead of genius films like Scott Pilgrim, all I can say is go **** off. It is your fault we're not getting an amazing big budget Cthulhu Mythos horror movie directed by Guillermo Del Toro. You should all be ashamed of yourselves.

And let's not forget the way the R rating is not only a death sentence for a movie but is batshit arbitrary at times. Big movie studio can squeeze NC-17 way easier than smaller studios. And off course naked normal bodies are way more offensive that dismemberment or gore explosions.

I mean, just look at the way most video games carry their M rating with a badge of honor these days. An M rating on a video game is far from a death sentence anymore.

The movie boards rating system is so goddamn archaic, its terrible.

And they wonder why movie attendance has been down lately..

I thought all three of those movies sucked. I also love how you attack people for their movie choices. I mean dude, not all movie goers are christians :p

I usually agree with MovieBob...and this was no different.

It's a shame we were cheated out of what could have possibly been a great movie, just because another did badly.

Yeah I'm ignoring you, you're specifically attempting to troll now.

Yeah you're right. I guess people just need a thicker skin eh? Anyway. All three of the movies you listed suck. It's to bad about this movie though. I hope del toro gets to make his video game.

Again, your own personal opinion.

I have a feeling you didnt "get" Scott Pilgrim. Its okay, I think the main problem is that not a lot of people did.

Scott Pilgrim isn't particularly deep, so there isn't anything to really "get." Well, except for some really obscure video game references.

You either like it or you don't. It's that simple.

HAHAHAH OMG you're one of those people. The type when you say like "I didn't like eva" you come back with BUT YOU DIDN'T GET IT. HAHAHAH..

Dude.... First of all thanks for telling me my personal opinion is mine. I wouldn't have known otherwise.

The next thing... Wow.. If you think Scott Pilgrim was some deep movie that people have to GET to enjoy... Wow....:p

Its actually a lot deeper than you think it is.

Its all about the coming of age and the realization that the self isnt as important as teenagers make it out to be.

I would like to go into all the little details of how each boss is a representation of different aspects of Scott's psyche and how the whole point of the Ramona isnt for fighting for the love but for fighting for maturity, but I'm honestly starving right now, so I'mma go get foods.

Needless to say, Scott Pilgrim is a goddamn Masterpiece and should be treated as such.

If there's something to "get" in a movie and you don't, that's probably a failing on the production side of things I would think for not presenting their ideas clearly enough.

Scott Pilgrim is like a musical, with fighting instead of dancing. Its shallow and sweet but so is every other stupid rom-com with Owen Wilson, Gwyneth Paltrow or the other gang of stock characters.

But it did have a pretty cool directorial style and great use of visual effects. It was certainly more inspired than The Expendables or Fast & Furious 4-but-not-titled-4. Whether you like it or not doesn't change the fact it was a risk and something unusual at the box office.
