SCOTT PILGRIM vs. THE WORLD
With Michael Cera, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Kieran Culkin, Jason Schwartzman, Ellen Wong, Kieran Culkin, Chris Evans
Written by Edgar Wright, Michael Bacall (based on the graphic novels by Bryan Lee O'Malley)
What an absolute fresh breath of cinematic air. The director of equally refreshing movies Shaun Of the Dead and Hot Fuzz takes a side-step from his fantastic homage pace and slaps this vibrant graphic novel adaptation of Bryan Lee O'Malley's work onto our screens. Bleeding many of the comic book styles into the film, our hero is the Canadian new-school slacker and band member Scott. He falls for a girl while his band prepares for a battle of the bands event. She comes with some baggage though. All of her evil exes come back to do battle with Scott. With a video game slant and incredible blending of reality and fantasy, this very unique movie is laden with so many cool bits & pieces you simply have to watch it to experience it.
Sera's typecasting is perfect as the cool nerd.
