Scott Pilgrim, 22, loves Ramona Flowers. However, if he is to date her, he must defeat her seven evil exes. Edgar Wright delivers a two hour sonic boom of pop-culture 8-bit hipsterism, smashing every genre in its wake. The dialog is crammed full of with wit and charm. The quick-fire editing is relentlessly sublime. Every performance is delivered with immense satisfaction. The effects constantly surprise with innovation and visual trickery. The sound design, flawless. The music, exceptional. No other movie of 2010 had me frothing coins from the mouth in anticipation of watching it a second time ‘round. K. O.
