I Wanna Be Ramona

Flowers, I mean.

As in Ramona V. Flowers from the comic book series Scott Pilgrim vs the World. No worries to the non-comic readers out there, it's being translated into a much-awaited movie so there's no need to slug through six volumes of black-and-white comic frames. The series is all about 23-year-old slacker hero - the eponymously named Scott Pilgrim - who falls in love with American delivery girl Ramona V. Flowers, but must defeat her seven evil superpowered exes in order to date her.

Princes Charming have it hard these days. Gone are the days when a distressed damsel comes complete with seven friendly dwarves.

So why would I want to be a dangerously fashionable, roller-blading delivery girl sending parcels for Amazon?

Well because two of her exes are played by Chris Evans and Brandon Routh respectively. Seriously. These two heavenly bodies in such close proximity would probably result in a spontaneous sexual supernova. And she dated them!

Evil alter ego aside, why would you dump him?

Why any sane heterosexual girl would dump them both in succession is simply beyond comprehension!

Review somewhere said that the movie trailer looks promising.

Had read the first volume right after watching the trailer. Supercool! :D
