Next on the chopping block: Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World and Harry Brown

Zok! Pow! Bamph! Cue video game music. It's time for another episode of Film Reviews From the Basement.

Few comedies are as clever and original as those directed by Edgar Wright. Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz are modern cult classics, so when word hit the reel world that Wright was adapting the comic series Scott Pilgrim as a feature film, the geek community clapped with glee. That's right, I said glee.

The resulting film, Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, received critical praise but bombed at the box office when it was released in theatres last summer. Did Wright get his hattrick, or is Scott Pilgrim his first failure? Shawn and I weigh in on the film tonight.

We're also taking aim at the British revenge thriller Harry Brown, which stars the legendary Michael Caine as an elderly widower who tires of youth crime in his community. Can old people still kick ass? Stick with us!

We've also got an assortment of music for your listening pleasure, a three-minute film rant by Radio NL's Matt Bellamy and the latest movie news to shake things up. Plus it's live radio, anything can happen!

Tune in tonight at 10 p.m. PST at 92.5FM CFBX Kamloops or go online to www.thex.ca. It's the best way to spend a snowy Friday night at home or wherever else you like to get your listen on!

And now, some previews:
