SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD
2010, Universal, 112 min, USA/UK/Canada/Japan, Dir: Edgar Wright

When lanky, apathetic Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera) meets the literal girl of his dreams, the chromatically coifed Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), he doesn’t realize the lengths he’ll have to go to win her affections. Let the battle of the Seven Deadly X’s begin! Break-neck, deadpan humor and hyperbolically ADD action sequences decorate director Edgar Wright’s whirling dervish adaptation of the popular graphic novel by Bryan Lee O’Malley. With Jason Schwartzman, Anna Kendrick and Kieran Culkin.


SHAUN OF THE DEAD
2004, Focus Features, 99 min, UK / France / USA, Dir: Edgar Wright

Director Edgar Wright and star Simon Pegg cowrote this funny and bloody film, which breathed new life into both the zombie and romantic comedy genres. In a quaint British village, average guy Shaun (Pegg), fed up with his humdrum life, tries to convince his ex-girlfriend to take him back. Unfortunately, their reconciliation may have to take a back seat to … a zombie apocalypse!
