Scott Pilgrim vs. The World 
"Scott Pilgrim Vs The World" by Yojimbo
2/4 stars

A wannabe rock star slacker living in Toronto meets the woman of his dreams but finds he has to defeat her 7 evil exes to win her heart. To a videogame playing comic book nerd with a love of ironic humour such as myself, Scott Pilgrim (on paper at least) seems like the perfect movie. Essentially Chasing Amy dressed up with Matrix style visuals, it's a comedy that actually fails to deliver much in the way of laughs. The US sitcom characters were all rather unlikeable and annoying (Michael Cera in particular really needs to start turning the record over) and it's trying SO HARD to be self-consciously cool it's nearly giving itself an aneurysm. The plot is also next to non-existent, the big "growing as a person" revelation is Cera admitting that cheating on his ex and dumping her was a bit of a douchey thing to do (no shit) and really it's just like watching an "ironic" Mortal Kombat with fancy window dressing. The sugar frosted visuals themselves are also a bit like eating a triple chocolate, chocolate chip cookie; delicious at first, but after a while you realise your teeth are hurting and you feel a little bit sick. It's the kind of idea that would've been great as a half hour skit on Spaced, but drawn out to nearly 2 hours it just wore on my nerves. Kick Ass kicks its ass, basically.
