109. August 28, 2010 - Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)

This movie is like Juno and Kill Bill's messed-up love child turned into a video game. Michael Cera and Mary Elizabeth Winstead (who - fun fact - was the original Jessica Bennett on Passions) make an unbelievable couple at first, but the idea grows on you. The movie very easily could have fallen flat as nothing but a hipster movie aimed at graphic novel fanboys, but Edgar Wright takes it and makes it funny and delightful for a much wider audience. The visual effects aren't too over the top and the tongue-in-cheek banter with the audience that occurs outside the story makes for a very fun time.
My Netflix rating: 4 stars
