Both, incidentally, are sitting at 81% @ RT.

Scott Pilgrim
Piranha

Pirahna has a fun theater vibe. Scott Pilgrim, even though I didn't care for it, you'll appreciate it for what it is at either the theater or at home. So my vote would be Pirahna.

Re: Scott Pilgrim or Piranha --> which should I see tomorrow?

It's a toss up. I loved both of them - I do think Piranha is more fun in 3D than it will be at home (although a lot of people in the thread were hating on the 3D I thought it had some decent 'in your face' moments here and there which were effective), however Scott Pilgrim is my fave flick of the year. I'd say do both back to back and have a great time at the theatre... if you can only do 1, go with Scott Pilgrim since it'll probably be out of theatres sooner (with Piranha getting the boot shortly behind it) box office numbers be damned!

I don't get Piranha. A few people get eaten, everyone else, get the fuck out of the water. Movie over.

^That's pretty much it, but it becomes a clusterfuck when you have 400 people trying to get out of the water vs. 4,000 flesh hungry Piranha's. If you don't like B-movie dialogue which is so bad it's good, tons of tits and over the top gore, the movie isn't for you. If you like those things (which I do), the movie is a total blast.

I didn't like it, but at best Piranha 3D would be a silly B-movie lark you'd see for the splatter. Which do you think you have a better odds of reminiscing about seeing in theaters for the first time: Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, or Piranha 3D?

Piranha 3D since you won't be able to duplicate that experience at home.

I see I'm too late, but I voted Piranha because I loathed Pilgrim like no other.

Re: Scott Pilgrim or Piranha --> which should I see tomorrow?

well, i saw Pilgrim and Piranha...kinda.

went early and saw the beginning of Piranha, just happened to have 3D glasses with me, saw about an hour. really didn't like it or hate it. it was just meh. 3D was meh as well. i will see it on Blu when it comes out. the underwater ballet was inspired though.

saw all of Pilgrim and really enjoyed it. wasn't wowed, but it was fun and inventive and Cera wasn't too annoying and Winstead actually surprised me as i haven't liked her in much else.

You saw an hour? You know if you stayed 15 more minutes, the movie would've been over... right?

Can we get back to normal English? You don't hate on something. You hate something. You don't say you love on something do you?

hating on something is still leagues better than labeling it crap. "This is a crap movie", "This is a shit movie!" Just add the damn py or ty. That is all.

How do you JUST happen to have 3D glasses w/ you? Don't they give it to you when you get the ticket or did you walk in?

He might have them from other things. Not everyone dumps their glasses in the recycling bin.
