A man decides to turn his moribund life around by winning back his ex-girlfriend, reconciling his relationship with his mother, and dealing with an entire community that has returned from the dead to eat the living.
A shy student trying to reach his family in Ohio, a gun-toting tough guy trying to find the last Twinkie, and a pair of sisters trying to get to an amusement park join forces to travel across a zombie-filled America.
Following Kick-Ass' heroics, other citizens are inspired to become masked crusaders. But Red Mist leads his own group of evil supervillains to get revenge, kill Kick-Ass and destroy everything he stands for.
Chloë Grace Moretz,
Scott Pilgrim plays in a band which aspires to success. He dates Knives Chau, a high-school girl five years younger, and he hasn't recovered from being dumped by his former girlfriend, now a success with her own band. When Scott falls for Ramona Flowers, he has trouble breaking up with Knives and tries to romance Ramona. As if juggling two women wasn't enough, Ramona comes with baggage: seven ex-lovers, with each of whom Scott must do battle to the death in order to win Ramona. Written by

Envy Adams' band, "The Clash at Demonhead", is named after a lesser known Nintendo Entertainment System game, "Clash at Demonhead", which was released in the US in 1990. The name is also a play on the influential punk band, The Clash. See more »
Scott tells the band that he has learned the bass line from Final Fantasy 2, then plays the battle scene from Final Fantasy 4. The game Final Fantasy IV was released as Final Fantasy 4 in Japan but re-titled as Final Fantasy 2 in the United States and Canada. See more »
The animation backgrounds in the opening credits feature symbols related to each actor's character as their names are shown. For example Alison Pill's flashes the numbers 1 2 3 4 in reference to Kim's trademark drum intros, Chris Evans flashes the symbol for Lucas Lee's skateboard company and the number 2 in reference to his position as the second evil ex, Kieran Culkin features a phone signal bar, etc. See more »
This is the perfect movie with perfect cast. I don't even like Michael Cera much, although he was fortunate enough to be in one of the most clever TV shows ever. He's become typecast, but this is one movie which breaks the mold. (Or at least it ignores it and does its own thing.) Edgar Wright has also directed the great movies "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz," and he doesn't disappoint with this. I haven't read the anime series this was based on, but I don't really want to, because this is so much better than it could ever be. To be completely honest, the only thing I don't like his how fast Scott's 'pee bar' empties. Nobody can pee that fast, geez.
But yeah, everyone should watch this, especially video game fans.
