I need to watch Spaced again too tongue

Since Melllvar and TNUK rate Scott Pilgrim so highly I ordered the DVD smile

Attack the Block is another genius film that captures a little of the Spaced feel... not much, but enough. It's got Nick Frost and Edgar Wright was one of the minds behind bringing it to the screen, so I suppose that's not surprising. Well worth going to see.

I love Scott Pilgrim. It is a really cool film and how they use it as  a computer game theme. Also I love Paul as well.

I am not sure about Attack The Block cos it full of Ghetto kids in it and I don't dig that. I might give it a try

I like how you said "ghetto kids" and used the phrase "dig that" in the same sentence.

I wanna see Attack The Block, because at least Joe Cornish has decided to portray hoodies in a positive light.  Which is remarkable, frankly.

And Nick Frost is in it!

Apparently it's an awesome film...SO RELEASE IT IN THE U.S. ALREADY!!! And don't put subtitles on it, we can understand British slang/accents, you Hollywood morons.

From wikipedia:

Quote
US distributors are concerned that American audiences might not understand the strong South London accents, and may even use subtitles if it is released in the United States. Cornish acknowledged this during the SXSW Q and A. When he asked the audience, "Can I ask you guys something? American distributors are nervous about language, the slang: could you understand it?" the audience "shot back a resounding yes."

SXSW is in Texas. If they could understand it in Texas...

For quite a long time I've been saying to myself "Why haven't you seen Spaced yet, Jezzem? You know you'd like it if you watched it."

So, I recently got over this Spaced-related laziness and ordered the DVD box set thingy and I am already in love with it.

Also, Scott Pilgrim is probably one of my favourite movies ever.

You won't regret it.  Honestly, best movie of last year.  Beating out some stiff competition too...


The DVD arrived yesterday and you were right about it being a good film; I'm not sure about it being the best film I've seen from last year but it was certainly a lot of fun and I'm sure I'll watch it many times smile

It is one of thos emovies which bares repeated viewings, there is stuff that you missed first time around.

For me, I loved Scott Pilgrim from the Universal Logo.... but I'm easily pleased.

I'm getting the general feeling that Scott Pilgrim is pretty good, if Edgar shoots it in the same way he did Shaun and Hot Fuzz then it's got to be watched.

Honestly I still don't see comparing Scott Pilgrim that closely to Spaced. I get what you mean obviously, with the visual gags and the pop culture references, but in my opinion Scott Pilgrim has a very different style of how it delivers those things. The visual special effect gags in Scott Pilgrim are far more over the top and pronounced than they are in Spaced. And the references are employed differently as well. As opposed to in Spaced where the majority of the references are verbal mentions or acted out homages by the characters themselves, the pop culture references in Scott Pilgrim are more infused into the events and what's going on...they're more subtle.

But the biggest reason I don't see the comparison as that striking is because for me the aspect that really defined Spaced was the way the characters interacted and talked to each other, and I don't feel that in any way carries over to Scott Pilgrim. I would say Shaun Of The Dead is the film that for me most captures the feeling of Spaced, because it has very similar character interaction. Most likely because it has most of the same actors from Spaced, but on the other hand Hot Fuzz feels very very different from Spaced because the characters (for the most part) act more seriously, and there's not the same relaxed, joking around interaction in a lot of the film.

I still agree however that if you enjoy Spaced you will most likely enjoy Scott Pilgrim.

I have revisited Spaced recently, and it still stands up.

Cool pic. Spaced house, Black Books store, where else have you pilgrimaged?

Hmm, I have picture evidence of doing all 12 pubs in The Golden Mile, from The Worlds End.   Over two towns (Welwyn and Letchworth), only 8 of them were actual pubs, and I had a drink in the first and last (non-alcoholic though)... 

Worlds End was my favourite movie of last year, and again, one which I thought got better the more you watched it.  Insofar as now I consider it my favourite in the Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy....  2nd is Shaun, and 3rd, Fuzz.  But it's all much of a muchness, it's very close.
