Movie Review: Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

This is definitely one of the best movies I've seen this year. And I'm pretty sure this was Michael Cera's best film to date. While this movie may not appeal to everyone, if you like action, comic books, and/or video games, this one is not to be missed.

In general, I'm not a fan of comedies. And on the off-chance that I do see a comedy, I might snicker a couple of times, but rarely do I laugh out loud. I was laughing every 2-3 minutes, at least. So was everyone else in the theater. I also heard a few guys, in a group of teens, shout out "cool" or "awesome" a few times. Everyone was walking out of the theater laughing.

And I can honestly say that I haven't seen a movie quite like this one before. It was very unique, and the effects were fun!

Scott, Ramona, Young Neil, Knives, Kim, Stephen Stills

If you're a fan of the comics, I'm sure you'll love the movie just as much. They stayed true to the series. All 6 books were put into one movie. A lot of times that doesn't work so well, because so much is left out. But there was very little left out of this one. And there were very few changes. I read the entire series in the past week and a half. What little changes there were, were not very noticeable and didn't bother me at all.

And in case you've been living under a rock, and haven't seen the trailer, here it is!

Hmm maybe I SHOULD give this a try I've been very hesitant because it hasn't appealed to me but all the things you listed I do like. Ugh decisions decisions.

I think you'd like it Sandy. I wanted to go back and see it again Friday night, not 12 hours after I saw it.
