Running Dialogue #14: SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD and THE EXPENDABLES

This week in our on-going podcast, Curt, Russ, and I discussed two of this weekend’s big movies, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and The Expendables.  It was fun talking Scott Pilgrim because each of us came at our first viewing from a different place in relation to the books.  Curt hadn’t read the books, Russ had read all but the final volume, and I had read all six.  While the site has gone mad with Scott Pilgrim coverage, I think you’ll want to hear what Curt had to say since he was someone unfamiliar with the series going in.  We also talked Expendables, but that was a shorter conversation since only Russ and I had seen it (Curt went to see Eat, Pray, Love instead, and you can listen to his Creative Loafing podcast about here).
