The Reel Deal - Scott Pilgrim vs. The World

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World

I had heard nothing but good things about this movie. Constant praise. Claims that this movie is the future of film-making and appeals to the generation very well.

I'd agree with that, this movie was awesome.

Everything worked in a weird and quirky way. All the characters had something you liked about them. The references to other texts (intertextuality - Media Studies YEAH!) was great. The idea is simple, if Scott Pilgrim wants to date this new girl, he must defeat her 7 Evil Exs. Yeah.

Michael Cera plays the awkward nerdy guy, only this time he's a bit more aware of himself, almost jerky. Not as helpless as his character in Superbad, etc.

Apparently this was based on comics, which I hadn't heard of before the film and haven't read, but I imagine it probably transfered quite well.

The only bad thing about this movie is that there aren't enough people going to see it, especially in America.

Awesome move, go see it :)
