Kanji Cameo

I just saw Scott Pilgrim vs the World  with Joe. It's a shame it didn't do better at the box office - though it wasn't perfect, it was jam-packed with nerdy references, had a good soundtrack, and was pretty funny (I thought) in its own right.

Anyhow, there's this one scene I wanted to point out to any of you who have seen or intent to see the movie - watch for this! During Scott's battle with two Japanese rockers, when it's time for them to get serious, they turn up the dial on their amps to 11. Great reference. Made even better by the fact that the dial's numerals are in kanji, so "11" is displayed as 十一.


  1. Haha, yes! This was one of my favorite movies in years. It comes out on DVD here next Tuesday.

  2. I love that they did this. Pure genius.
