Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)

Director: Edgar Wright. Cast: Michael Cera, Kieran Culkin, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Anna Kendrick, Jason Schwartzmann, Chris Evans, Brandon Routh, Thomas Jane. 112 min. Rated PG-13. USA/UK/Canada. Comedy/Fantasy.

A Toronto twenty-something meets a new girl, and embarks to destroy her "seven evil exes" to win her heart. This youngter's perspective (literal) comic book homage to 90s video games and sitcoms comes to life by exhilarating visual treats, and Michael Cera's boyish charm - although not sure how many more times he can repeat the same nerdy introverted persona that made Juno and Superbad work. Wasn't a video game guru, so I probably didn't get a good grasp of the fun, but I predict this movie will achieve cult status. Would've worked better if it was shorter.
