Who doesnâ€™t enjoy a good flick every now and again? This one had everything needed to please my demographic including a cool soundtrack, Michael Cera, a video game theme, a hot chick with dyed hair and the coolest final boss I could imagine.
Welcome to â€œScott Pilgrim vs. The World,â€ a movie that blends elements of playing video games with, well a movie.
Pilgrim finds his dream girl and in order to win her he must defeat her seven evil exes.
Those who know Cera know he doesnâ€™t come off as the fighter type. In fact his quirky humor is almost as impressive as choreographed fight scenes that steal a page or two from â€œMortal Kombatâ€ and â€œStreet Fighter.â€
Add some RPG elements and bingo a hilarious movie catered to video game nerds.
Itâ€™s truly a dip into fantasy set in reality with laughs and actions. Just donâ€™t approach the movie with any stigmas or youâ€™ll probably walk away angry that you listened to me.
As per usual hereâ€™s the trailer.
SIDE NOTE OF IMPORTANCE: I am looking for some input or advice into some meaningful foreign movies or American films that capture the sense of auteur theory. Nothing on the level of this movie I just hyped up but some truly artistic films. Just a little something Iâ€™m working on.
