Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World directed by Edgar Wright and based on the graphic novel written by Bryan Lee O'Malley hit theaters with a visually spellbinding bang! Its nerd meets video game in a battle of the bands bollywood number with martial arts that would make a ninja envious.

This fun action-comedy stars Michael Cera, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Kieran Culkin and Anna (Jessica from Twilight!) Kendrick. These young Hollywood actors may not have been the "best" this movie could have found, but they did a decent acting job making the movie work overall. :)

Plot Summary:
Scott Pilgrim's life is so awesome. He's 23 years old, in a rock band, "between jobs," and dating a cute high school girl. Everything's fantastic until a seriously mind-blowing, dangerously fashionable, roller blading delivery girl named Ramona Flowers starts cruising through his dreams and sailing by him at parties. But the path to Ms. Flowers isn't covered in rose petals. Ramona's seven evil exes stand between Scott and true happiness. Can Scott defeat all seven of the bad guys and get the girl without turning his precious little life upside-down, before the game is over?

The film definitely appeals to a certain demographic, not the mass public, but that set audience will adore this movie. I could easily see this one becoming a cult classic, watch out DVD release I have a feeling this film will be beloved for years to come. Opening 1980's video game music was a riot and sets the pace of whats to come in the film, had me smiling within the first 30 seconds. Must find that ringtone!

I do have to point out, for me, the film was a tad too long. A good 15 minutes could have easily been cut from the storyline. Felt a little forced in parts, but does make up for it in many other ways. I think we would all like to defeat our arch nemesis and collect some coins. :) And watch out vegans, the police will come for you should you choose to slip up! Be warned, the Punisher

Best part of seeing this film was going with 2 of my good friends who just so happen to be geeks, therefor appreciating the various aspects in this movie. :)
