This week at BuzzFeed, we learned what it is to be American: to believe in miracles, get hit by foul balls, and give people eating disorders. We met and shamed Mary Bale, cat-binner. Knocked Up made us laugh immaturely more than the first time and… Read More
Featuring new compositions and tracks by Beck, Broken Social Scene, and Metric, the soundtrack to new Michael Cera flick Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is almost as enticing as the film itself.
Beck penned the tracks for fictional band Sex Bob-Omb, which features Cera’s character on bass, while BSS took on the same duties for another of the film’s made-up groups, Crash and the Boys. Highlights include Metric’s “Black Sheep” and Beck’s own ballad to the movie’s heroine, “Ramona,” while old-school tracks from the Rolling Stones and T.Rex add classic-rock cred. … Read More
Over the weekend, the full-trailer for Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World was posted online with a relatively positive reception. The main criticism, as with almost all Michael Cera related content with the exception of Year One, which as Jezebel would say simply needed to “die in a fire”, was that Michael Cera was once again playing the role of awkward yet lovable teenage protagonist. And although it may be frustrating to see a young actor make so much money off of one trick, we must admit that we love this one trick and are becoming even more frustrated with having to feel ashamed of our Michael Cera… Read More
Earlier today, an angry M.I.A. tweeted out writer Lynn Hirschberg’s phone number in response to this upcoming New York Times Magazine cover story on her that she doesn’t like. While we love Hirschberg’s deadpan response to both the initial outburst (“It’s a fairly unethical thing to do, but I don’t think it’s surprising. She’s a provocateur, and provocateurs want to be provocative.”) and a followup tweet about an “unedited version” of the interview (“I have no idea what she’s talking about”), the entire thing has us thinking about what happens when celebrity/journalist relationships hit a bump in the road. Click through, and let’s explore! … Read More
What begins as standard indie romance fare (a brightly-hued wig and walk through the snow reeks more than a little of Clementine Kruczynski) but therein lies the comedy, friends. You see, Michael Cera’s typical lovable loser gets drop-kicked by one of his new lady’s “seven evil ex-boyfriends.” Can the mumbling protagonist defeat the evil exes and save the day in Scott Pilgrim vs. The World? One good sign: the movie was produced by the folks behind Hot Fuzz and Sean of the Dead, funny films that wholly touted the underdogs. Watch and see; full trailer after the… Read More
Ah, Michael Cera – the one who has put awkwardness, striped sweaters and virginity back on the map. This hipster has wooed the likes of Jules, Nora, and now Sheeni (even the names of the girls scream “Indie!”) in his trademarked shy whispers. Some of you may find his banter charming, while others may simply want to punch him around a little. Fair… Read More
