Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (Aug. 13)

At first, this movie seems like a typical "teen" or romantic comedy. Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera) meets a rollerblading delivery girl named Ramona Flowers. Only problem? In order to win her heart, he has to defeat her "seven evil exes" in all sorts of comic-book action and fighting.

Why geeks want to see it: What geek in us didn't want to secretly win the cool girl by "defeating" all of her ex-boyfriends? This film takes it up a level with comic-book style words like "THUD" and "KAPOW" much like the old Batman TV show.
