Movie Review: Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

Sunday, October 24, 2010
After hearing a bunch of good reviews, I finally had a chance to see Scott Pilgrim vs. the World at the St. Johns McMenamins theatre.

Check out the trailer:

So the levels of awesome in this film defy description. Imagine you're me: geeky, have played my fair share of video games (and probably yours, too), enjoy movies, sarcasm, dry humor, and witty remarks. The target demographic for this movie definitely included me, and I loved every minute of it.

The basic premise is that our titular character, Scott Pilgrim, is an emotionally guarded twenty-something slacker with a band, a gay roommate, and a judgmental sister. He's dating an obscenely young gal when he meets the woman of his dreams, Ramona. He likes her, she likes him, and all would be great except she has seven evil exes that need defeating. Scott helps lead his band through the battle of the bands while fighting these various villains.

This is not a movie to take seriously. This is not a movie for people who don't like movie-meta humor or for whom "weird" is a negative adjective. This is not a movie that, as far as I could tell, had a point other than "be excellent". And it was.

Final word on Scott Pilgrim vs. The World? If you're anything like me, see it a dozen times.
