How can you possibly describe Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World? If it's not impossible, it's at least very difficult. Michael Cera plays a geeky kid (surprise, surprise) who falls for a punk girl. As soon as their romance starts up, he discovers she has seven evil ex-boyfriends with superpowers, who all want to kill him for touching the love of their lives. In order to stay with her, he must face them in battle and defeat them. This action-comedy spoofs- and is done in the style of- old pixelly video games from the '90s. If that doesn't make any sense, just watch the trailer, or better yet, go see the movie; it's one that must be experienced. The youthful and enthusiastic cast includes Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Live Free or Die Hard), Kieran Culkin (Macaulay's brother), Anna Kendrick (Up in the Air), and Chris Evans (Fantastic Four).
