Cinefantastique Podcast: Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

Posted: Updated:

This week's installment of the Cinefantastique Podcast takes a ringside seat for Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, director Edgar Wright's genre-spanning (and genre-erupting) adaptation of Bryan Lee O'Malley's graphic novels, starring Michael Cera as a conflicted but earnest Toronto slacker who must find love and personal balance, all while defeating his new girlfriend's seven evil exes. Candy-colored fight scenes and intense grunge rock ensue.

Dan Persons and Steve Biodrowski judge the bouts and offer the usual, insightful round-up of news, events, and home video releases.
