What she watched: Scott Pilgrim

Being a bit of a Michael Cera fan*, I was really looking forward to Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, and it didn't disappoint. I'm not usually one for 'action' flicks, especially not ones based on the premise of characters having to defeat each other,** but the fighting was so stylised and accompanied by so many great one-liners, even I was fine with it. (I especially loved the vegan police, who reminded me of myself in my most militant-vegetarian phase.)

And I love a film that assumes there are grammar nerds in the audience...

*Yes, I know he can only play one character, but it's a character I like.
** Because usually 'defeat' = violence and Aimee is an uberwuss when it comes to violence, fictional or real.
