Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: A Geek and Nerd References' Fest

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: A Geek and Nerd References' Fest

I went to see Scott Pilgrim vs. the World at the weekend and I was taken with the visual style of the whole movie. Eccentric humour aside, the movie was pretty simplistic as far as plot is concerned, but the aesthetic complexity displayed was pretty amazing. The use of augmented reality styling with major references to to the likes of the Tekken franchise were really interesting to see.

A major Hollywood action movie full of geeks, with amazing martial arts sequences pulling all sorts of super nerdy references, completed with a barrage of great VFX sequences to set the whole thing off. A very interesting departure from the run of the mill dross that fills our multiplexes, I'm not sure how well it's done at the box office, but for pure escapism I for one thoroughly enjoyed it and I hope we'll see more left field projects like this getting green lit. Now that there is a new nerdy brat pack in Hollywood the geek may very well inherit the earth!
