Movie: Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)

An Epic of Epic Epicness

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010) is a comedy movie based on the graphic novel series Scott Pilgrim. This movie is directed by Edgar Wright who also directed the famous 2004 zom-com (zombie comedy), Shaun of the Dead.

Synopsis: Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera) is the bass guitarist for the band "Sex Bob-omb" led by Stephen Stills (Mark Webber). Scott is dating Knives Chau (Ellen Wong), a high-school girl but he still hasn't recovered from being dumped by his ex-girlfriend, Envy (Brie Larson). One day, Scott meets Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead). He doesn't know Ramona's past - she has seven ex-lovers who have teamed up as the League of Evil Exes against him.

They are:
1. Matthew Patel (Satya Bhabha)
2. Lucas Lee (Chris Evans)
3. Todd Ingram (Brandon Routh),
who's also Envy's current boyfriend and her band's bass guitarist
4. Roxy (Mae Whitman), a lesbian
5 & 6. Kyle & Ken Katayanagi (Shota & Keita Saito)
7. Gideon (Jason Schwartzman),
the mastermind behind the League of Evil Exes.

Scott must battle these evil exes to the death to win Ramona to his side!

I find this movie very weird but its concept is refreshing. It's a teen flick, so you can expect tonnes of relationship-related issue. However, instead of focusing on the common boyfriend-girlfriend-gay-lesbian-sex stuff, this movie decides to take the fun-and-easy route to make every scene fun and entertaining to watch. The characters are not taking themselves too seriously; they maintain a certain level of cute goofiness that doesn't make you feel like a retard.

What I like best is the movie's approach. The story is presented like a video game, a metaphor. The characters - Scott, Ramona, Knives, and the evil exes - are the game's players, and their lives is the game itself. Of course, most of the scenes don't make any sense at all but that's besides the point. LOL!

Even a fun-and-light movie like this has its fair share of enlightenment about relationship issues. The story makes us think about how tough it is to make a relationship work when there's so much emotional baggage. The battles between Scott and the evil exes give a picturesque desciption about how far you are willing to stretch yourself.

Overall, do watch and feel young all overall again. :)
