If I push the scope of my memory further into my past, I can recall sitting in the theatre eagerly waiting for Scott Pilgrim vs the World to begin. I'd devoured Bryan Lee O'Malley's comic book series about a Canadian ne'er-do-well, who plays in a band and has to defeat his girlfriend's seven evil exes and was curious about Edgar Wright's adaptation of the six-volume series into a two-hour film.
The film exceeded my expectations. Michael Cera wasn't my first choice in playing Scott Pilgrim but he soon grows on me; the rest of the supporting cast brought the comic book to life; the visuals evoked the fun and spirit of the comic book… and the coup de grace: the soundtrack.
Despite all that, Scott Pilgrim vs the World didn't do well at the box office when it first came out but over the years it gained a cult following. Recently most of the cast, along with Edgar Wright, Bryan Lee O'Malley and co-writer, Michael Bacall, got together for the 10th anniversary (Brie Larson and Kieran Culkin were absent) and to raise money for Water for People. Judging by the camaraderie, it's as though they had never left in the first place.
When you're done with that trip down nostalgia lane, get reacquainted with the film's soundtrack consisting of Beck; Frank Black; Metric and Plumtree, whose song, "Scott Pilgrim", became the basis of O'Malley's creation.
