Runaways / Scott Pilgrim

I went to the The Runaways last night. While it's a good film it's not quite as FUCK YEAH!!! as it could be. I don't know why that is, as I can't fault the look, the story or the acting (both leads are excellent - and sexy). Maybe it just lacked some of those cheesy music-biopic montage "OMG we're No.1!!!" moments. There was only one press-clippings/vinyls/chart-placings/glamorous photo-shoots montage in the entire film.

The award for most FUCK YEAH!!!" film of the summer must go to Scott Pilgrim vs The World. It's really excellent, despite being based on comics that were already excellent - Edgar Wright has done a bang-up job and has really come through with all the talent he showed on Spaced. I look forward to seeing what he does next. A super-hero movie maybe?

Surprisingly, both these films have been box office flops, but I reckon they will both find second lives on DVD and Blu-Ray.

Honourable mention also goes to Pirahna 3-D, and the one-off screening of the Human Centipede at the Cornerhouse.
