RV!: Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)

RV!: Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010) Dir: Edgar Wright Date Released: August 2010 Date Seen: November 6, 2010 Rating: 4/5

A more cogent piece on Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, one where even I convince even myself that the film is a major player of 2010 that unfortunately got dismissed because, gasp, it's about a geek! An unwelcome revival of the thoughtless, schizophrenic, self-flagellating party line that squeals that "fanboy"ishness and pop culture must be frequently stifled began an when Kick-Ass came out. And the blowback from that idiotic and largely unqualified argument crippled this freakishly well-realized fantasy. A shame. See my dvd review for Slant Magazine.
