The Academy Awards air tonight, so I’m kind of forced to finish this now. Well, that and the fact that a couple days ago I finally saw all the films I wanted to see before I made this list. So, without further ado here are what I believe to be the best films of last year.
Oh Scott Pilgrim, how you have fallen from grace. What started as a fantastic geek-centric graphic novel series about a 20-something slacker whose world is ruled by video games references and adoring characters has become a bit of a mess both on the page and on the screen. However, just because Scott Pilgrim isn’t what he SHOULD be, doesn’t make him worthless to experience at least once…does it?
Last night a 4-minute animated short ripped straight out of the book Scott Pilgrim vs. the World aired on Adult Swim. I just did a quick comparison and the scenes in the animation look exactly the same and have the same dialogue as the book. The only difference is color and voices. Check it out below the cut.

This movie looks SO good. I will see this at midnight if there is a midnight release, and I suggest you do too. But first, watch the international trailer below.
After Gamepro debuted the first screen shots, last night on a GTTV special they debuted the first gameplay footage. This looks like a pretty fun beat-em-up. Check it out below.
Here are Ramona Flowers’ seven evil exes on six posters. If you don’t know why there’s only six posters, it’s because she dated twins(yeah, it’s weird).
Yes I fully intend to get these. Yes I’m totally ashamed of myself. Yes I will get them anyway.
Coming somewhere between July and August are the Scott Pilgrim plush figures, which I have to say look pretty nice. I mean, they could have been worse. The only problem I find is that I will now get swept into wanting to get all of the Scott Pilgrim merchandise that comes out. And following that, the only problem is that with a franchise like Scott Pilgrim, some God-forsaken store chain will grab a hold of it and “Nightmare Before Christmas” the life out of it until everyone and their whorish mother has something with Scott Pilgrim on it.
Finally, after a weekend worth of waiting and “liking” its Facebook fan page(the trailer was released once they hit 100k fans), the second trailer for Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World has been released. Check it out under the cut.
The beginning of the end begins and ends here where the end becomes the beginning. Again.
Oh my God, I can’t wait for volume six of Scott Pilgrim. Scott Pilgrim’s Finest Hour was revealed yesterday as the final book in the series, wherein we’ll mainly be expecting Scott to finally take on Gideon in the final ultimate battle of supreme finality until one of them is a dead deceased corpse. We’re apparently looking at a July 20th, 2010 release, which I’m not sure if I can sit patiently for. Too much needs to happen, and I’m way too excited. Will Scott wind up with Ramona? Is Stephen Stills going to stop being a dick? And when is Young Neil finally going to straighten up and deal with his problems?
