Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)

Scott Pilgrim is a young man who plays in a rock band, and despite what his friends think he is dating a seventeen-year old high schooler named Knives Chau. Until an encounter at the library, when Scott sees the girl of his dreams with pink hair and falls in love almost instantly. He sees her again at a party and finds out her name is Ramona Flowers. Not long afterward he starts dating her while still going with Knives. But when Ramona's exes (seven in all) start popping up, Scott has to fight them for the girl he loves. A fast paced and unusual movie with some very funny jokes that is just like being inside a huge video-game. Michael Cera is great as the eccentric Scott, whose personality and insecurity resembles that of a Woody Allen character. Starring Michael Cera, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Kieran Culkin 7/10
