If you haven’t read the graphic novel series of Scott Pilgrim by Brian Lee O’Malley, then you really should go and do that right now. If you have, then you probably have already seen this movie. It is a great movie if you have or haven’t read the books.
The movie is about a boy called Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera) who is a 22 year old, in a band, living with his gay roomate Wallace (Kieran Culkin), dating a high school girl called Kives Chau (Ellen Wong), but still getting over his last girlfriend. He’s a slacker. He then meets and falls in love with Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) who he starts to date too. Then he finds out that if he wants to date her, he has to defeat her seven evil ex-lovers (Many people including Chris Evans and Jason Schwartzman).
I can’t put into words how awesome this movie is. It really is. If you haven’t seen it yet then you should. Right now. Don’t even finish reading this.
Tomorrow (today) will be The American.
