Scott Pilgrim, Free Read
The Birth of Scott Pilgrim
In 1997 the Canadian band Plumtree releases the album “Predicts the Future.” The collection of songs include their biggest single, the track “Scott Pilgrim.” The song went on to inspire the pen of Bryan Lee O’Malley, who creates the 6 part manga-influenced comic series of the same name. With this, Scott Pilgrim, our favorite Canadian, was born. We realize this is high praise. Our apologies and honorable mention go to Michael Cera, Drake, The Weeknd, Gordon Lightfoot, Bryan Adams, and so many more.
O’Malley’s 6 part series later led to our favorite film of all time, “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.” The 2010 release is clever, entertaining and endlessly quotable. The cast includes many then up and coming stars including, Michael Cera, Anna Kendrick, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Brie Larson, and Chris Evans. The film successfully blends music, humor, video games with raw porno nudity. Ok, we kid – no nudity – but it is still impressive. If you haven’t seen it, find it, watch it and love it like we do. When it is over let us know what you think.
