This one was a request from my niece, who is a big fan of the Scott Pilgrim comic series. Bryan Lee O'Malley must have done something right, because those comics and TPB's seem to have tapped into a demographic that mainstream comics have been unable to get the attention of. I had heard mixed reviews of the movie, and I had never read the series, so I watched it with an open mind. While visually very interesting and inventive, I felt that most of the humor fell flat and I didn't find Scott or Ramona to be all that likable. Fans of the comics will probably like it though, I know my niece has given it multiple viewings! BTW, the Batman image here is by the talented Ralph Cosentino.
