I finally beat that game last year.  I bought it when it came out. When I was 14.

I don't actually know what Scott Pilgrim is, and I wasn't even aware that the comic was so popular that it was actually getting made into a movie by the same guy who directed Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz.

But hey, there you go.

The early buzz on the movie is really damn good.  I have high hopes.

I'm not really a huge fan of TORONTO HIPSTER: THE (obviously Canadian Torontonian) COMIC BOOK, but it doesn't exactly make me rage.

Any particular reason why?

I don't like stories that mess with my vision of uncomplicated romance.

So basically you hate being challenged by works of art?

Also what do you do when life messes with your vision of uncomplicated romance?

And I call myself an artist. Hypocrisy of the lowest order.

No, the truth is, I don't think I'm particularly fond of the cuckolding that seems to be alluded to in the last two books. Cheating is one of my triggers.

Yea, I have a hard time watching and reading things that revolve around realistically bad relationships (even non-romantic relationships between characters).  It's depressing.

How is it realistic? He has has to have SUPER ENERGY COSMIC KUNG-FU FIGHTS with each of his girlfriend's ex-boyfriends. I want to know what kind of romances you've been having.

Note that I don't purchase the book, but then I'm not really for or against it. The silliness of SUPER KUNG FU HIPSTER FIGHTS has made me curious enough to think about maybe picking it up, but never got past the whole TORONTO HIPSTER ROMANCE COMIC bit enough to actually pick it up.

This is one of the reasons I hated A Serious Man. It's a lovingly rendered picture of someone getting fucked hard by circumstance in equisitely realistic detail, just like I have to watch happen to most people I know every day of my life.

I'll happily admit to enjoying my escapism in fiction. If I need a dose of reality, I'll just... go to work. Or stay home.

Actually I haven't read or watched or whatever this particular thing.  I already forgot what we were talking about.  I was just kind of agreeing in general.

I find it difficult to watch Nurse Jackie for example because the whole nurse addicted to drugs who cheats on her husband just hits a little too close to home for comfort. 

And when I read a Handmaid's Tale for the first time I ran away from home.  That was going to be another example but I just took some benadryl and am having trouble explaining myself or thinking in straight lines

I hope they adapt the Iron Man 2 trailer into a film like they did for the first trailer.

It's not. But seeing the cracks forming in a relationship - real or fictional - is a depressing and unpleasant experience for me, no matter how quirky the comic/movie/other is. This is why I couldn't watch Chasing Amy a second time.

It has a scene where a character tries to look intimidating and says "Release the kraken".  This seems familiar.

You probably remember it from the original Clash of the Titans.
