There are a few reasons why the movie version of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World did not work as well as the comic books, most of which make it into this Honest Trailer send-up. Even the Screen Junkies' jokesters have to admit that this movie's fun, though, provided you fit within its extremely niche target demographic.Read More

What if Harry Potter had been adapted from a Bryan Lee O'Malley graphic novel instead of J.K. Rowling's epic saga? We'd probably have gotten a series of films that look something like this. I'm in Lovegoods with this trailer.Read More
Hey, it's that one guy! Maybe you should follow him.

That person is Scott Pilgrim creator, author, and artist Bryan Lee O'Malley, because he's still writing comics and being hilarious, and you can get in on it.Read More

I'm in lesbians with this news.
Whether or not you actually like the movie Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World (side note, if you don't like it then you're totally wrong), you have to admit that the soundtrack is frickin' amazing. Now, after being completely sold out and impossible to get since the movie was first released, they're starting to reprint it on vinyl again.Read More
This little girl, captured here adorably yelling "We are Sex Bob-Omb!" apparently wants to be Kim Pine when she grows up.
Unsure of what little girls want to be when they grow up, Geekosystem jumped into the field and surveyed a four-year-old girl, who shed light on the subject by telling us she wants to be either a mommy, a teacher, or a Christmas tree when she grows up. Really. She's awesome.

With a weekend box office of $10.5 million, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, which cost about $60 million to make, had the alarmingly bad opening that fans feared it would. While a few (generally older) critics slammed it, it was really a stellar movie, and one needn't have read the graphic novels it's based on (I didn't) to appreciate it.
There are plenty of theories as to why such a buzzed-about, well-marketed, solid movie performed as weakly at the box office as it did: CinemaBlend surmises that it existed in a no-man's land, with people above 30 not 'getting' it, but people too far below 30 not 'getting' the retro gaming references either; it being a geek movie that most geeks don't actually relate to ("This is a movie about a slacker musician whose biggest problem is choosing which of the two hot girls he's dating he most wants to sleep with"); and, lastly, the 'everyone hates Michael Cera' hypothesis, which I don't entirely buy, but which is widespread enough that it has to be based on some reality.
In some respects, it doesn't matter why; what matters is the aftermath. Hollywood's backlash against 'geek' properties without a hit-you-over-the-head mainstream hook could be just as bad as we fear.Read More
