…go see Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.

Scott Pilgrim vs the WorldIt is hyperbolic, lots of fun, a really great time.

I’m heading to Stratford tomorrow to see The Tempest – yes, I am also a theater geek, and I make no apologies for it. Besides, General Chang is in it, so I really need to see this play. But I digress….

I am serious about Scott Pilgrim, it’s an absolutely great film. Besides, do you really want the horrific Eat, Pray, Love to hit top spot this weekend?

Yes, the review is forthcoming. I promise. Just go see it, please? You won’t be disappointed.

Here’s the trailer:

Here’s the trailer faithfully recreated using the images from the graphic novel for all  you uber-geeks out there:

I’m really thinking I’m going to have to see this movie!

I love the comic book touches (“What are you doing? Getting a life.”)  and the fact that Edgar Wright (Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead) is directing it fills me with glee. Chris Evans lack of any acting ability however? Not so much.

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World opens August 13th.

PS. Nice Can-con touch with the CBC shirt. Could this movie make it cool to watch the CBC?
