Mental froth...After avoiding any critical fictional-crushes for this long, my expectations for an ideal partner, or my “type”, have finally been completely smashed apart by Willow… this doesn’t bode well considering I’m only 2 seasons into the series.
I should really back off before I do permanent damage to myself O_o
OMG SHE’S SO PERFECT THOUGH
I am embarrassed by how badly this show is kicking my ass with how awesome it is anyway, every episode so far is giving me shakes. And the ones I skipped originally like the Pack and Angel were fucking amazing in contrast. Love this show, especially when I need something to stop me tearing myself apart with my own thoughts :D As for the Willow thing… >n<
Season 9 Journal DumpI'm hoping for the best. Meaning I'm hoping the Reds and Blues will have their own strong plot to follow alongside the Freelancer scenes. What I'm worried about is having all the Reds and Blues story contain the value of Recreation's, and simply be there for frickin comic relief, then dumping all the plot on Freelancers. I really think the best quality product has to see the same amount of plot and comedy on both sides of the season's stories. I know, very optimistic.
The film adaption of the Scott Pilgrim series is probably the best film adaption I've seen of anything ever. I think I liked Tomorrow When the War Began's film a decent amount, but this is on a whole different level. The cast of this film is fantastic, the story works well enough in the new format it's told in, but perhaps the thing that makes the film work so well is that the style is brilliantly applied from the books to the film.
And speaking of style, Ramona Flowers being portrayed by Mary Elizibeth Winstead, is beautiful in this film. Every time she came on screen, I was constantly nomnomnoming in my mind; then came the almost-sex scene. My head basically exploded at that point.
Forgetting that anyway, I'd say if you love Art films like I do, there's a very high chance you'd enjoy this film. Almost every scene is intercut with imaginative and unique transitions, which both take the audience away from the film world, and make them marvel at the amazing imagery. I'll say that anyone who's read the books before seeing this film should be prepared for a bit of a dip towards the end as well.
While I won't give spoilers, actually never-mind I will. You should be prepared to endure Gideon as a much more lighthearted character, and not as much of the total badass he was in Volume 6, the final book. That said, he works well enough here.
I found this film inspiring; and it taught me that, anything is possible in the world of film. The guy who came up with the idea of making a film look like a comic may have been considered insane at the time, but with persistance, it was achieved with fantastic results. Edgar Wright was one of my idols before this film, and will continue to be after it.
I doubt it's in cinema's any longer, but it comes out soon on disc, so I'd highly recommend anyone who wants to watch a different type of movie at least rent this out, though I'd strongly recommend a purchase instead.
