Review: 'Scott Pilgrim' Is A Knock-Out Punch For Gamers & Comic Book Fans

August 11th, 2010 10:00am EDT
Scott Pilgrim
Movies that adapt video games and comic books for mainstream audiences usually attempt to make the plot more accessible to the average viewer. In grounding the experience so that people can relate to it, often these works abandon the light-hearted and fantastic aspects that appeal to their followers.

What’s so absolutely wonderful about “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World” though is that it does not attempt to dumb itself down. The director Edgar Wright, of “Shaun of the Dead” and “Hot Fuzz” fame, has created a film with uncompromising vision directed towards a very distinct target niche: gamers...

This past weekend, “The Other Guys,” starring Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg, unseated “Inception” for the top spot at the box office. Notorious for mediocre movies, August is typically the worst month of the year for any moviegoer who craves an inspired experience at the theater.

This August, however, may be different as “The Other Guys” has already gotten solid reviews from critics and a $35 million opening weekend. The re-teaming of Ferrell and writer/director Adam McKay has already spiced up the box office for the early part of August and several other titles makes one wonder if the re...

Anna Kendrick rocked the red carpet at the "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" premiere in Los Angeles on Tuesday. The "Twilight" star wore an asymmetrical black and blue strapless dress with bright yellow heels.

We've noticed a trend lately, and it's a really good one. Many stars are avoiding the tanning salons (and the oftentimes hideous artificial spray tan) to go more au natural. They're sending a message to America - be healthy and avoid skin cancer!

Ironically, Anna is starring in the upcoming film "I'm With Cancer" in which a young man struggles when he discovers he has the disease. Jos...
