Game On for Love!

Meet Scott Pilgrim, 22-year-old slacker and bassist for Canadian rock band Sex Bob-omb. Scott's dating high schooler Knives Chau, but is really in love with punk rock delivery girl Ramona Flowers. But there's something Scott must do before he can date this girl of his dreams--besides ditching Knives with as little drama as possible. Scott's got to fight Ramona's Seven Evil Ex's, who include a famous skateboarder, a vegan rock star with super powers, identical twins, and a girl in need of some serious anger management therapy. And, of course, Scott must also own up to his own inner demons. Will Scott defeat the bad guys, win the girl, and save the day? Or will he be KO'd? Or worse, become an Evil Ex himself? 

Based on the gaphic novel series by Bryan O'Malley, Scott Pilgrim vs The World combines a great storyline, perfect casting, awesome special effects, and elements from old school video games. All this while remaining true to the books (as much as it's possible for a movie to do so, that is). But this movie can be enjouyed even if you're not familiar with the books. Exceptionally entertaining and highly recommended! --AJB
