An Epic of Epic Epicness


An Epic of Epic Epicness is the tag line for the film Scott Pilgrim vs. The World.  I took the day off work today to spend with my sons since one goes back to college this weekend and the other starts 11th grade on Monday. The younger kiddo decided he would just stay home with his music/guitar. So, older kiddo picks the place for lunch and the movie.  We went to one of my least favorite places on Earth to eat- Chili’s-  I had a chicken/ranch quesadilla.  For the life of me, I didn’t see or taste any ranch dressing. 

Then we went to the movie. The one I didn’t want to see and was counting myself lucky to have missed it yesterday when my 2 girlfriends went. Alas, I found that I was not to have dodged that bullet like I thought I had. Off we went to see Scott Pilgrim vs. The World.  It was actually kind of witty and cute.   I didn’t like some of the elements- such as the coins falling in certain parts. I liked the band- they were actually pretty good. Jason Schwartzman was excellent as was the guy that played the gay room mate of Michael Cera’s character. It was Kieran Culkin.  Hate to say it though, I’m still not a big fan of Michael Cera.  He just seems so blah. No personality.
Enjoyed the day off with the kid. We went to Target and Sam’s, too. And now he’s cooked dinner. He’s handy to have around.
