Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World

I hate to post something just so I can say something negative. In fact, I'm not even sure if that's what I'm going to do. I'm simply going to post something to say that I don't get it. Maybe it's because I'm officially getting old and no longer understand what those kids are into anymore. But after hearing so much hype and enthusiasm for this upcoming film Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World (based upon a comic book I've never heard of), I finally saw the trailer yesterday before Predators. And boy does it look awful. It certainly looks like a well done intention to make whatever that movie is suppose to be, but to me, well, I don't get it. But here is the trailer so you can tell me what I'm missing:

At least it looks original and different, so I hope it makes a lot of money and attracts a lot of people, but I sure won't be one of them, because I think it looks terrible.

I read a few pages of one of the Scott Pilgrim trades once. Didn't get it at all. I thought it was dumb.

Maybe someday I'll actually read more and regret that I dissed it, but man...I just wasn't getting it.

In fairness, the way they made the movie looks different and interesting.
