    Scott Pilgrim vs. the World 2010

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 26 Jul, 2015

    Colourful comic book carnage. It’s loud, brash and full to the brim with cool references from computer games, comics, films and more. If anyone could step up to the plate to handle such a film… Edgar Wright could... and he did in a BIG way.
