"Complete geek gasm"
That's how Edgar Wright describes Scott Pilgrim Vs The World which arrives in UK cinemas today. I don't have much to add to the barrage of press and hype that's engulfed the movie in recent months other than to say I enjoyed it very much. It is, as has been widely discussed elsewhere, hugely entertaining, with Wright cramming every single frame with more info, tasty tidbits and general cool stuff than can be enjoyed or even noted in a single viewing. His visual language and cinematic vocabulary is extraordinary, and quite unlike anyone else I can think of. Would I have liked a tad more story? Yes. But did that necessarily spoil my enjoyment? No. See it on the big screen before buying the DVD in a few months' time when you will be pouring over frame to see all the bits you missed.
