Nitpicky Nerds Have Nothing on 'Scott Pilgrim'

May 18, 2009

Edgar Wright has posted another video blog update on the progress of his Scott Pilgrim adaptation, and once again I'm astounded by the ridiculous detail he's gone through to accurately replicate the wardrobe, locations, and even exact panels from the graphic novel series. Like Sin City and Watchmen, this looks like it's going to be a movie where you'll want to make sure to read the comics beforehand so, later, you can experience the joy of smacking your friend's arms in the theater and shouting, "Holy shit, that's just like that part in the comic!" Except your friend doesn't even know what you're talking about; they've had The Dark Knight Returns borrowed for about a year-and-a-half and it's obvious they aren't going to read it or any of your other recommendations. What an asshole.
