It's been a while since I last posted an entry here.

This is sorta of a cross-post from my LJ. Also, this is coming from someone who hasn't read the Scott Pilgrim comics yet, but only played the PSN video game.
I've watched Scott Pilgrim vs The World and I loved it!!♥♥♥ *___*
The style, music and energy of this film was great! All the references and sound effects to old skool video games used throughout the film had me in glee! (Zelda, Mario, Street Fighter, and Sonic are the ones I identified. And correct me if I'm wrong, but did they make a NES Duck Tales reference?) Heck, Scott even wore an Astro Boy t-shirt! And I love the humor! XD From the moment that Matthew Patel enters the scene, the film got crazy and exuberant, and a lot of things didn't make a lot of sense from there on, but the film just embraced the craziness.
The cast of characters where also brilliant! Those who stood out to me and I became fond of was Knives Chau, Scott's young high school girlfriend whose character I normally would have found annoying, but she actually came across rather endearing thanks to the actress who played her, and Wallace Wells, Scott's suave, laidback and level-headed gay roommate.
My gripe with the movie is that we don't get to know all too much Katayanagi Twins, how did Ramona met and split up with them (They didn't speak at all!). Perhaps, provide more build up for Gideon, and have slightly more insight on Scott's past relationship with Envy. My other compliant would have to do with all the craziness; how does Scott know how to fight and why no one seems to have a scratch on them after getting pummelled so much? But then again, I had to chalk this up to the video game aspect of this movie's theme, so perhaps my complaint here is invalid.
But other than that, it was a very enjoyable film.
Most definitely recommend people to watch this film, especially to fellow old skool gamers! d*^o^*b

Okay. I'm worried. I haven't received any submissions at all for my online Black Jack anthology project: www.maiyeng.co.uk/bjdoujinshi/
And there's only 2 more months until the deadline. @@
I guess I should have started this project sooner when the anime was still be subbed cause I have noticed that slight fall in interest and inactivity with Black Jack around some communities.

Arh, I still need to go on LiveJournal! >.< *runs off* Oooh! That sounds awesome! I'd love to get out with some friends and see a movie, so maybe I'll consider going to see it! :'D He wore an Astro Boy shirt?! :'D Awesome! :dance:

No submissions? D: I could *try* so see if I could do something, but it depends on my health and how much time I have with school n' stuff. I'll try to remember! :3

If you're looking for a free webjournal, then livejournal is a great place to get one.
Oh, it is a fun movie! One that you do have to switch your brain off to enjoy though. XD; (So glad I was in the right frame of mind to enjoy it!)

Thanks! It's alright if you don’t have time.

I actually made an account a while ago and went on a little last night. It looks like there's all sorts of communities so I'll see if I can hang around on there. ^^

The computers were down in my web design class, so I had time to sketch ideas. XD I'll still see if I can do something. ^^

LJ does require as much attention as you do when going onto DA. XD Yes, it's great when it comes to communities, which is why I hang out at LJ far more than I do on DA.

Cool! ^^

I'm glad that you enjoyed the Scott Pilgrim movie! The amount of video game references in the film make the geek in me happy! I do agree the actress playing Knives did a very good job of playing her.

Yes! Also forgot to mention the awesome battle between Scott and the exes and how each battle is different from the other.

I've been wanting to go see "Scott Pilgrim." I flipped through the comics at the bookstore and liked what I read a lot.. :)

Ahhh---

Hope other people get interested in it. There are definitely people out there, rare as they may be... : /

I highly recommend it! ^^b The fight scenes are very well done since it involves Jackie Chan's stunt team! *_*

Thank you! Anything will do, so long as it follows the submission requirements! XD;;
Yes, I know. I just hope it hasn't completely slipped their minds...
