(2010) dir Edgar Wright w/Michael Cera, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Kieran Culkin, Anna Kendrick, Alison Pill, Mark Webber, Ellen Wong, Johnny Simmons, Jason Schwartzman [112 min]
While many critics shortchanged Edgar Wright’s gleefully manic version of Bryan Lee O’Malley’s comic saga or just flatout refused to “get it,” SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD is an exhilarating pop-culture extravaganza and mash-up of geekculture influences that creates a coming-of-age story for the 21st century. Scott (Cera) is a bass-playing slacker who is smitten when he catches a glimpse of Ramona Flowers, the ultimate manic-pixie-dream-girl. Unfortunately for Scott, Romana has a cadre of evil exes that Scott must defeat in video-gamestyle combat to win her affections.
