Black Sheep

5 07 2013

For the past little while, I’ve been super into Scott Pilgrim, if only because I read the first of the series of graphic novels by Bryan Lee O’Malley and loved it. I proceeded, naturally, to watch the movie again, and loved it even more than when I originally saw it. For some reason, the following day, with Scott Pilgrim still in my DVD player, I checked out the extras just for fun, watched the gag reel, and then was surprised that there were 4 different audio commentary tracks. One featured actors playing minor roles in the film: Anna Kendrick, Aubrey Plaza, Keiran Culkin, and Mark Webber. Curious, I selected it, thinking I was only going to to watch/listen to about ten minutes and then pop in Jane Eyre because it would be due soon at the library. Ten minutes became twenty, and then thirty, fourty-five– you get where I’m going with this.

I couldn’t help it! It just sort of happened, and I couldn’t stop the movie because they were so funny… and since then, I’ve been listening to the awesome soundtrack, particularly the Sex Bob-omb songs and this one, ”Black Sheep”, sung by Brie Larson (in the film) and Metric. I shall be reading the rest of the series when they arrive at the library for me, but in the meantime, here’s a kickass song from a kickass film.
