We talk and talk and talk about it..

Bryan Lee O'Malley liked Speed Racer too!
I didn't need anyone to validate my opinion, but that makes me feel good.
Generally if both I and one of my close associates agree that something is good, I know we are correct. Someone you respect thinking the same way is then not unlike some kind of delicious opinion icing on which one is able to turn one's tongue blue.

I'm still not crazy about Michael Cera as Scott Pilgrim (though I've thoroughly enjoyed him in other things), but Mal has confirmed that he will be SP to the wonderful Mary Elizabeth Winstead's Ramona Flowers. I guess if he's good enough for Mr. O'Malley, he should be good enough for me. Speaking of the Ramona announcement, courtesy of Mal's LJ I found this article on FirstShowing that shares my joy over Ms. Winstead's casting.
To me, this casting is as perfect as Christian Bale as Batman, Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan Kenobi, or Keanu Reeves as a guy who can really convincingly say "Whoa" in that movie where he says "Whoa".
That article also lead me to this post that helps make me feel like Michael Cera might not be so bad after all.
