If Scott Pilgrim approves it, it must be good.

Plus, we could only hijack the Avatar thread for so long.

Oh! AND!

in 2011 all 3 of them are collaborating with Spielberg and Peter Jackson on the TinTin series.

I guess I'll hop on this bandwagon sometime soon.

Must I really read Scott Pilgrim, fuck-o?

My friend has beene hasslin me to read Scott Pilgrim forever, but I have a strict post-film rule about reading books/comics. Usually because the source material is better than the film adaptation. As Tommy Wiseau says, "We'll seeeeeeee."

I think the one thing the Scott Pilgrim film has going for it is that it's a rather organic companion piece to the books, from everything I've read. Started production right after the first volume was published and evolved along with the written series. Supposed to follow the first two books rather faithfully, then sort of goes off in its own direction, incorporating just the big ideas from books 3-5 and ending the whole thing in a unique way. I read there was also a lot of creative exchange between O' Malley the author and Wright, some of Wright's ideas and dialog finding its way into the later books and such even. And hell, the last volume hasn't even been released yet, set to come out some time this year, not even sure if it's before the film or not. I think this might be one case where it couldn't hurt either way to read the series before the film, since this is a particularly unusual case of adaptation. Not that I necessarily disagree with your logic for reading stuff after the film. Makes plenty of sense.

If you find this even a little bit amusing... then yes, you really must.

Interesting. That really does change my outlook on reading the comic before the film comes out. Do you know if Matthew Vaughn approached Kick-Ass in a similar vein?

And who else would approve of Nick Frost as Harry Mudd if he were ever to make an appearance in a future Star Trek movie?

No idea, but I'd wager not. Haven't the Kick-Ass books been out for a while now? I have no idea regarding that either though.

Also, back in D.C. for my final semester. *unhappy*... mainly just because I'm back in D.C.

I want to say that they haven't all been released yet, but I'm probably wrong.
