Last night, in the midst of slacking off, I finally got around to watching Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World. I'd heard phenomenal praise of this film as being one of the best in a long time, but hadn't managed to go see it while it was still in theatres--which, it turns out, was actually a mistake.

If you haven't seen this movie yet, I'd recommend you do -- IF you're a gamer geek and/or movie fanatic. If you're not, this movie probably isn't for you. The film requires that you drop your suspension of disbelief to record lows as people calmly accept the fact that, apparently, everyone is some kind of kick-ass, ninja-like supernatural fighter with no explanation what so ever. There are some shots of utter disbelief from everyone at the beginning, then they just seem to forget that they ever objected to it. Despite this, the effects were amazing, the editing and direction was spectacular, and the actors were, for the most part, very well chosen.

TL;DR: Bitching about Love vs Lust confusion in movies. Very important stuff, I'm sure.
