Watch 'Scott Pilgrim vs. The World' With MoPOP + Special Guest Glenn Case!
For our "Grow Up!" film series, we're exploring adolescence in all its lusty, zitty, complicated glory. Through December 2020, we'll be celebrating movies from all over the genre map that show just how joyful and confounding being a teenager can be.
You're invited to join us at 6 p.m. PT this Thursday, December 17, as MoPOP Production Associate Kasi Gaarenstroom and special guest Glenn Case lead an online watchalong and virtual discussion of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World.
Special guest Glenn Case, a self-proclaimed "internet geek musician" who has written and recorded hundreds of songs, says, "I have seen Scott Pilgrim vs. the World in theaters more times than any other film. My friend Baer asked if I was going to have 'Seven evil viewings' and I told him, 'Well, I am now!' I was obsessed with all things Scott Pilgrim for a while, whichled to Scott Pilgrim theme parties (complete with Vegan Shepard’s Pie), creating custom Sex Bob-Ombkaraoke files, and being able to conduct areally coolradio interview with Carla and Lynette [Gillis] from Plumtree. Additionally, I have been a fan of the webcomic Diesel Sweeties for years before seeing the film, so buying the Pixel Skull t-shirt was a given. Beck wrote the songs for Sex Bob-Ombin the film, which helps to explain why the compositions are so damn catchy."
