Another new month is upon us, meaning it’s the time when I would normally go into a long-winded spiel about the kinds of movies you can expect over the next few weeks, but I think we all know the drill:…
You try and tell a Hollywood actress she can't play a high schooler any more. Go ahead, we dare you. Yeah, we didn't think so. And thus we get Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp: The Series.
In her second requested review, Sofie takes on Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, starring Michael Cera as a dorky adult-olescent whose life resembles old Nintendo games. You probably think her review will be much different than the dreaded Mr. Mendo review of the same movie, but will it? You gotta watch and find out!
Ursa reviews the movie, while Mendo unleashes a torrent of mindless self-indulgence, complete with cameos from Johnny Oldschool, the Unusual Suspect, Liam AKA Cheapus, Joey Tedesco as Dr. Rockso, a musical interlude from Full of Questions, and a special appearance by Robert Million as the Log Lady. Yes, all of this happens during the review. Honest to blog.
It's a special series where Mr. Mendo reads fan-fiction about him sent in by the fans! This episode features a story inspired by his Scott Pilgrim vs. the World review, wherein Mr. Mendo encounters Michael Cera, and all sorts of homoerotic, disgusting, violent events ensue. Seriously, this story is NSFW.
“Michael Cera plays a 20 something slacker (shocker!) living in Toronto, who falls in love with a girl with seven evil exes, among them Superman and Captain America. Scott has to do battle with each ex in a series of Nintendo-inspired fight scenes, while writer-director Edgar Wright shamelessly attempts to create a new cult classic by stuffing in the maximum amount of video game in-jokes possible.”
