Scott Pilgrim vs. the World
Adapted from Bryan Lee O’Malley’s graphic novels, this film mines the oeuvres of video games and superhero movies, mixes in post-modern music and pop-culture references, and dashes on several coats of humor and flashy design. Director Edgar Wright gets the best from a good young cast in a fun romp that sometimes hints at deeper things. Astutely observes today’s culture. Enjoyable.
