This quick Popcorn Review was taken from the Top Ten Movies of 2010 List:
It took a 2nd viewing for me to really appreciate how great SPvtW (that doesn’t make it any easier) really is. I guess you could say my mind was too blown away from its awesomeness the first time to realize the originality that this movie brings to the table. Standing alone, a hipster, indie, high school love movie should never come close to qualifying for a list like this. But then comes the script and direction from Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead) with some help writing from Michael Bacall (21 Jumpstreet) and you have a movie that destroys its expectations. Much like Scott destroys many of his girlfriend Ramona’s ex’s in his indie rock/graphic-novelesque/ video games style mission to win her heart.
Large Popcorn with Butter.
