Saw Scott Pilgrim Takes On The World with two of my boys last night. Going in, it had pretty much everything against it: my guys insisted we sit in the second row, so my vision was blurry and my neck was hurting before the trailers had concluded; the place was insanely packed with unfortunate tattoo/piercing decisions, due it being that half-price Tuesday night scam, and my well-documented misanthropy was therfore in fullest bloom; and I didn’t know diddley-squat about the movie, or what to expect. Zero, zippo, zilch.
But it was awesome. Awesome, Canada!
Martial arts, punk rock, quirky dialogue and a bizarro plot line: I mean, seriously, what more could you want? Well, how about it being proudly in, around and about Toronto? Now, that takes serious balls.
Anyway, I recommend it highly. It achieves the near-impossible, and makes Toronto cool. For that, it deserves the Order of Canada.
