Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World

-What now? I have no Inception. I have no Scott Pilgrim. Machete is fast approaching. What's left for me this year? What is a loser to do?

-This movie kicked so much ass. Not uncommon this very year might I add. Sure, a lot of movies sucked, but like anyone expected them not to suck. Meanwhile, the movies that I've been geeking out about have been spectacular, and really, what more could you want? A few really good movies that you knew were going to rock, and a shitton of really bad movies that you knew were going to suck. This year, I know where we stand.

-Anyway. Kieran Culkin should be in more things, I say. He, as the dour gay roommate of our eponymous (anti?)hero, is sarcastic and awesome and gets the best one-liners, and he's, like, a total slut, but that's cool, because he literally turned a straight guy gay by staring at him.

-Is it wrong that I love the line "And I'm a little bi-furious!", as said by Mae Whitman?

-Is this trying to be a comic book movie or a video game movie? I like to think both.

-Seriously, best cast ever. If I could change anything, friend, I would give Alison Pill and Anna Kendrick more to do.

-Michael Cera is fine, but that might be because I have no qualms with his mumbling. Mary Elizabeth Winstead is pretty good, getting the whole sardonic mystery of Ramona down. Ellen Wong is so unbearably adorable you're almost rooting for Scott and Ramona to fail.

-"She has a head start! I didn't even know there was good music until two months ago!"

-Good day.

I absolutely loved the bi-furious line. So good. I just loved the whole movie in general.

Loved. This. Movie. Made my Summer. I do not understand why it's not No. 1 (Oh...yeah..."The Expendables" opened...*sigh*)

"Bi-furious" didn't grab me. But "Les-been" did. Ha!

Tracking to be Best Sound for a movie, this year.

And one last line: "Do you see a future with this girl?" "You mean, like, with jet-packs?"
