an epic of epic epicness
Demotivational poster / demotivator description: Fragment of "Scott Pilgrim vs The World" movie poster. An epic of epic epicness - Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera) playing on electric guitar. Watch Scott Pilgrim vs. The World trailer and go to the movie if you hadn't see it yet :) The film is just epic and made of awesome. It's even better than "Kick Ass". And moreover in can be treated as some kind of romantic comedy for geeks - perfect movie to go out to the cinema. However you should watch the movie first without any distractors, because it's really cool.

Some Scott Pilgrim vs. The World fun facts and inside jokes gathered from the Internet:
1. Scott's band is called Sex Bob-Omb. And of course it's an geek reference. A bob-omb is a wind-up walking bomb that made its debut in Super Mario Bros. It's no friend, but thanks to its timed explosive nature it can be used as an impromptu weapon against other enemies. We can call this killing outsourcing ;)
2. When Scott defeats Ramona's evil exes, they dissolve into coins. One of the earliest and most memorable video games to use the coin phenomenon is River City Ransom on the NES (to younger readers - it's a game console), where enemies would also comically yell "Barf!" upon defeat (and drop coins of course). However several recent games, like the over-the-top 'No More Heroes' series, combine coins with gore: chopping enemies in half results in a fountain of blood and cash. Yay! You know - greed is good ;)
3. Young Neil is Sex Bob-Omb's fill-in bassist, and also a Nintendo fanboy. A true fanboy - almost fanatic. He can be seen playing a Nintendo DS lite, wearing a Nintendo 64 t-shirt, and lists both Tetris (you know that it was originally made by a Russian programmer?) and The Legend of Zelda as his favorite games. Nintendo geek true form.
4. Scott's roommate Wallace Wells can be a bit of a jerk. Then again, he's often stuck sharing his bed with Scott - awkward, especially when he brings home a boyfriend. remember this when you will be grumble on your roommate next time ;) When first introduced, Wallace is given a rating of 7.5 out of 10. Many video game publications consider such a score "average." It's a roundabout way of saying he's not always the best roommate. But, hey - not always the worst ;)
