I love Scott Pilgrim vs the World! Okay, it wasn't a huge box office success, but it's now a cult favorite! Edgar Wright, the same brilliant man who did Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, made this film based on the graphic novel series by Bryan Lee O'Malley. I saw the film on cable one late night, fell in love, then bought it on Blu Ray. I then got the set of graphic novels. Unbelievably, the film follows the stories quite accurately, even if it spans more than one book.
I think what makes the film so full of win is the music, the adorable actors and the overall style. The friggin' thing looks like a video game and music video at the same time!
And truthfully, the whole idea of having to fight 7 evil exes is pretty awesome. Scott is just a regular guy, dating a girl who's probably too young for him, and meets the lovely Ramona Flowers. Who wouldn't fall in love with Mary Elizabeth Winstead, especially with her blue, pink or green hair, though I don't condone him breaking poor Knives' heart! But it's okay if you're bad at him for that, because Scott gets his ass kicked...a bunch.
