Scott Pilgrim vs. Peter Von Brown
I'd probably known about the comic, but admittedly I'd never read it. And when I'd seen news of its release, I also admit that I dismissed it as something I need not see... because I mistakenly thought it would be along the lines of a "little wannabe rock hero climbs his way to the top into that all-important big competition" story.
I have to say, I am the target audience. I haven't had that much fun laughing with a film in the theater since Napoleon Dynamite. A special shout-out to the Legend of Zelda references. (The use of the 'Fairy Fountain' song is priceless!)
It's not a hyperbole when I say that it instantly moved into my top five favorite films of all time.
Needless to say, the series of graphic novels it's based on is now on my Wish List.
UPDATE: I have since read the books. Here's the post: Scott Pilgrim vs...Scott Pilgrim?
