I went to the premiere of "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World" last week, and i have to say its Probably a close second in my favorite movies of 2010 so far, Its fuckin witty, adventurous, edgy, and pushes boundaries on tolerance with social issues, sex, homosexuality, but does it in a comedic way, that also make you comfortable. it makes a point without seeming preachy or even noticeable. Scott Pilgrim is a graphic novel series by Bryan Lee O'Malley, consisting of six digest size black-and-white volumes. i have not yet had a chance to read them, and its odd for me, cause I'm usually a reader before i am a watcher. The first volume was released in 2004 and, as of July 20, 2010, all six have been released, all published by a Portland, Oregon-based independent comic book publisher Oni Press. i was actually quite impressed by this because everything is so mainstream nowadays, The name "Scott Pilgrim" originates from a song by the all-girl, Halifax, Nova Scotia, '90s band Plumtree. "Pilgrim" was borrowed from local musician Philip Pilgrim.
The series is about 23-year-old Canadian Scott Pilgrim, a slacker (perfect for "Cera"), hero, and part-time bassist who is living in Toronto and plays bass guitar in the band "Sex Bob-Omb." He falls in love with American delivery girl Ramona V. Flowers, but must defeat her seven "evil ex's" not ex boyfriends ;) in order to date her.
This movie made me laugh from the first frame to the last, it does seem a little long, but its still pretty damn good, the cast is perfect, and it doesn't feel like anyone is trying to make you laugh. the visuals were amazingly fitting, and the music was fantastic. In 2005, O'Malley won the Doug Wright Award for Best Emerging Talent for the first volume of Scott Pilgrim and was nominated for three Harvey Awards (Best New Talent, Best Cartoonist and Best Graphic Album of Original Work). Scott Pilgrim vs. the World was planned as a film after the first issue of the comic was released. Director Edgar Wright became attached to program and began filming in March 2009 in Toronto, Ontario.
