Its alot more then that.  I really think you should give it a shot and read the comic books. you will eather really love it or really hate it depending on what kind of person you are :) "
What more is there? It's references packed into an over-stylized two hours. "
Im talking about the comic book not the movie. The movie is a lot more enjoyable when your relating it back to the comic books and you are more familiar with the characters. Without the ability to relate back to the comic book I can see how someone could come to the conclusion that it is over stylized and "trying too hard"  
 
If you want to know if you will like Scott Pilgrim I would suggest reading the comic books instead of seeing the movie

" @Jamer91: Oh, I can find it fine, but then there is the question about money. I cannot justify purchasing comics when I barely got money for food and gas. I will buy the comics some day though, as I really want them. "
no no I mean look to read it online. im sure you can find a website online that has the series and if you cant find it you can allways download it in a torrent. You can find almost every kind of comic on torrent websites for example I read every single darkness comics by using torrents and a comic book reader application on my computer. it may seem complicated but it really isnt. :)

THIS  Also, I am not very impressed by the progress of consoles and games because I have been following them since I was conscious of their existence many a year ago, but I can see how it would be very impressive as an outsider.  In terms of how popular or mainstream they've become... Well, it's good because that means more money to further the technology and more pieces of the pie for more developers to get into the game. But it also makes me fear that the more hardcore games will fall into relative obscurity as the Call of Duty's and Halo's rise to power.  But maybe those fears are irrational, there's still people that consider their work an art or very special experience like Levine and we still have really hardcore games like Team Meat's flash-to-console Meat Boy. "
I think games like Call of Duty and Halo are necesary due to the fact that it helps hook new people into gaming and as a result they will have more exposure to games like super meat boy and limbo. there are so many things to hate about hardcore games that get everyones attention but the good thing about them is that it helps the industry grow and when the industry grows, indie developers get a larger audience.

" @Jamer91: Because finding any graphical novels at all in Norwegian libraries are rare. Normal comics are even rarer. Never heard of Chapters or Indigo, which means we don't have them at all. Norway is a small country, so we have some catching up to do when it comes to stuff like that. "
Have you tried looking it up online?

" Ha, you crack me up. You're impressed more by the obnoxious advertising than the games themselves. Taco Bell Halo is the pinnacle of success. "
Im not impressed by the advertising itself, just the fact that its getting done. Video games would never have gotten this much advertising 8-10 years ago and now they are given a lot of mainstream attention and I find that very impressive.
 
Im not necesarily talking about video games from a technological sense but more of a social sense. it goes without saying that the technological improvements of video games are impressive but many people did not want video games to be popular and it certainly was an uphill battle. The public impression on video games have gone through many highs and lows throughout its history but in the end it became a successful industry that makes alot of money and is very popular. that is what I am impressed by

The other day I was walking through my local mall and I noticed the large ammount of marketing towards games like Call of Duty Black Ops and Fable 3 and I was amazed by how far video games have come.
 
When I bought a Halo Reach themed taco bell meal it really amazed me on how popular video games have become and how much they are intigrated into the mainstream. 
 
has there been a single moment that has impressed you with the progress of video games? it could be anything from when you saw graphics that really impressed you, waiting in line for a game with tons of other people or even seeing a massive game advertisement.

I didnt like Ramona in the movie at all :S. She was really mean and she never made you think "oh thats why he's fighting so hard for her". she was also way too sarcastic. It would have been funny once or twice, but it seemed like she was sarcastic throughout the entire movie and did not match the character from the comic at all.

overall it looks pretty solid with a little bit of jankyness mixed in. its not something I would ever get though due to the fact that my TV is set up close to my bed
