Summary:

From genre-smashing director Edgar Wright ('Shaun of the Dead', 'Hot Fuzz',) the story of one slacker's epic battle to defeat 'the seven evil exes' and win the girl of his dreams.

Charmingly nerdy 22-year-old Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera) plays bass in a band but has never been lucky in love. When Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) rollerblades into his world, Scott believes he's met the girl of his dreams. However, he quickly finds there's a big and totally unexpected problem - Ramona's seven evil exes control her love life and will do whatever it takes to eliminate him as a suitor. As Scott gets closer to Ramona, he must face an increasingly vicious rogues' gallery from her past - from infamous skateboarders to vegan rock stars and fearsomely identical twins. And if he hopes to win his true love, he must vanquish them all before it really is 'game over'.

Review:

Scott Pilgrim reminded me as to why i love films, nowadays we have too much of the same being shoved down our throats. Thankfully this movie shoryuken's that out of theatre and from the 8 bit universal logo and music you are thrust into a sea of references memorable quotes and the most well shot and choreographed fight scenes in recent memory. Unfortuantly though many people will dismiss this movie and go see a unoriginal and gimmicky movie because it is the safer option. many people have said that the film is only appealing to one demographic. GOOD i would rather have a movie appeal to one group than to be a dreary grey appealathan for all.

The film is Filled with references that you have fun just finding so if you are a fan of video games comic books anime manga or geek culture in general you oh it to yourself to watch this movie. with its great action scenes, funniest and quotable lines, BRUTAL soundtrack, likable characters and references to other media. Scott Pilgrim VS The World is how comic book movies should be made and will be a classic for our generation.
