    [SIZE= 12pt]Scott Pilgrim vs. the World slayed critics of every generation with its highly stylized visuals. The New York Times’ A.O. Scott raves “You may want to see it again as soon as it’s over.” Jeremy Smith of “AintItCoolNews” calls the film “Wholly original. There’s never been a movie like it” and Rossiter Drake of the San Francisco Examiner pronounces it a “bold, brilliant spectacle.” Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is “far and away the funniest movie of the summer,” according to the Orlando Sentinel’s Roger Moore, and Peter Travers of Rolling Stone calls the film “a breathless rush of a movie that jumps off the screen, spins your head around and then stealthily works its way into your heart. It’s a game changer.”[/SIZE]

    [SIZE= 12pt]SYNOPSIS[/SIZE]


    [SIZE= 12pt]Meet charming and jobless Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera). A bass guitarist for totally average garage band Sex Bob-omb, the 22-year-old has just met the girl of his dreams...literally. The only catch to winning Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead)? Her seven evil exes are coming to kill him. Genre-smashing filmmaker Edgar Wright (Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead) tells the amazing story of one romantic slacker’s quest to power up with love in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. Scott Pilgrim has never had a problem getting a girlfriend. It’s getting rid of them that proves difficult. From the girl who kicked his heart’s ass—and now is back in town—to the teenage distraction he’s trying to shake when Ramona rollerblades into his world, love hasn’t been easy. He soon discovers, however, his new crush has the most unusual baggage of all: a nefarious league of exes controls 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.

    I meant to see this in the theaters as I heard only good things about it, but missed it. November is shaping up to be an expensive month with all the great titles being released! We just got a trailer for the DVD/BD release:

    This will be a definite buy for me. As the father of a hipster-ish teenage daughter and videogame-addicted teenage son, I took both to see this in theatres and they loved it. I loved it too.

    I meant to see this in theatres as well - but summer got so busy - I am a huge fan of the comics.

    I'm psyched about all of the commentaries, especially the Edgar Wright/Michael Bacall/Bryan Lee O’Malley. It'll be really interesting to hear O'Malley's thoughts on the film.

    Me too - do you follow Edgar on Twitter? He usually posts some cool Scott Pilgrim related stuff, as well as cool nerdy film things as well.
