Scott Pilgrim vs. the World
Scott Pilgrim, a hipster doofus, falls for Ramona Flowers, a crazy-colored-hair hipster goddess. But to be with her, he must first defeat her 7 evil exes -- videogame-style.
This movie was awesome. It's funny and cool and the music is awesome. It's just fun - and totally made for the Nintendo (and maybe even Atari) Generation. Everything is in a cool videogame/comic book style that's very surreal but somehow works. I mean, where else are you going to have Vegan Police show up and it makes sense?
Michael Cera plays the same character he always plays, but it works for him, so we let it happen. Kieran Culkin is awesome as the Gay Best Friend - he's officially my favorite Culkin.
The movie's just cute and fun and makes you feel like you just downed a Red Bull. And it makes me want to play Q*bert. Good times.
