Scott Pilgrim Vs. The Box Office

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.
