Scott Pilgrim vs the World
I fell in love with the film Scott Pilgrim vs the World when the first trailer was released a few months ago. When the trailer ended, I was giggling, clapping my hands, and I believe I said (out loud to no one), "that was awesome!!" (yes, I'm over 50, deal with it) After seeing the movie today, a few kids sitting in front of me said the same thing. Scott Pilgrim meets Ramona Flowers, and in a simple desire to pursue boy meets girl, he is dragged into the world of the League of the 7 Evil Exes. He holds his own, with a lot of kicking and punching. Scott must make decisions, Scott has a lot going on, Scott must grow. The characters are interesting, from his friends to his enemies. All surprising, all fantastic. This film is creative, funny, sarcastic and races along to a satisfying end. I loved this film, and give a big round of applause to the acting and the music, just fantastic!!
