Scott Pilgrim vs. the World
Get the hot girl. Defeat her evil exes. Hit love where it hurts.
Scott Pilgrim is a film adaptation of the critically acclaimed, award-winning series of graphic novels of the same name by Canadian cartoonist Bryan Lee O’Malley. Scott Pilgrim is a 23 year old Canadian slacker and wannabe rockstar who falls in love with an American delivery girl, Ramona V. Flowers, and must defeat her seven "evil exes" to be able to date her.
This movie is like anime and videogame combined, and when you do it right, can you honestly think of a better combination..
The think I like the most about this movie is that the movie is so funny, entertaining and full of action and ultra-cool direction and cinematography but also can works its way into the heart with such a touching love story between two unforgettable characters.
Michael Cera and Mary Elizabeth Winstead are really amazing in their roles and the soundtrack is mesmerizing as well.
Edgar Wright gives us a movie that according to my wife is "too cool for me" as a 43year old man. A fantasy adventure that bristles with attitude and a cracking young cast including Michael Cera,Kieran Culkin, Anna Kendrick and the excellent Jason Schwartzman this was real fun. Mary Elizabeth Winstead is the object of the young Scott Pilgrim's affection as he is instantly smitten by her but unaware of his impending date with destiny.
As things progress with his new girl Scott is stunned to discover that he must defeat her seven evil exes for her love. Duelling with a variety of evil exes, from a skateboarding actor to a lesbian young Stevie Nicks lookalike Scott battles in a…

From the 8-bit Universal logo right at the start to the 'Continue?' screen at the end, this is just an hour and fifty minutes of surreal, hilarious, video game style, comic book awesomeness. I mean, how else do you describe a film that contains a fireball-throwing Bollywood pirate, characters picking up extra lives after fights, a sonic yeti versus a two-headed electro dragon, a bass battle and a De-Veganising Ray. Yes, all of that happens.
Then on top of the the visual overloads every ten minutes or so, there's what is basically one of the best soundtracks I've heard, a fantastic cast -…
"You once were a ve-gone, but now you will begone."
Right from the 8-bit Universal logo opening I knew I was in love with 'Scott Pilgrim vs. the World'. It is the most supreme sugar rush, visually styled to within an inch of its life but so steeped in video game history that it makes total sense. It also taps into the impressionable time of our youth, when being cool was the be all and end all of your existence. A time when if you weren't cool, you looked up to the cool kids, stalked the cool kids, tried to do anything to get the cool kids to notice you. It is also perfectly captures that feeling of young love,…
There have been moments lately when I've really felt my age. The creaking bones, the lethargy of a middle-aged man, even the grumpiness of 27 years of night-shift are starting to show. My wife, my dog, movies, and my LB friends keep me going as the hot weather saps what little energy I have left, but then it's time to kick back and enjoy some me time. First up, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.
There are movies that are so silly and so much fun that you can't help but lose yourself in them. Edgar Wright's first foray into Hollywood is just that, a film that indulges the weird and the wonderful without remorse. It's pure unadulterated joy as everyone's…
If Scott Pilgrim, or more specifically Michael Cera, wasn’t such an insufferable twat I might actually enjoy this film.
Edgar Wright brings the pages of the comic book to life with verve and originality yet so much of his good work is undone by such a horrible fuckwit for a protagonist. I can’t think of another film where nearly all the elements are spot on yet the lead makes it nearly impossible to enjoy. Although faithful to the source material it is a film that pushes and plays with the boundaries of the medium whilst packed with enough little throwaway details to make the film re-watchable despite Cera doing his best to ruin the whole experience.
I feel bad for not liking a film with this much energy, inventiveness and infectious spirit.
Ich liebe diesen Film einfach.
Edgar Wright weiß einfach, das Publikum mit grandiosem Humor, gekonntem Einsatz von Grafischen Elementen, dem spielen mit Licht und Schatten, und verschiedenen Schnitttechniken zu begeistern.
Es gibt nur sehr wenige Filme dich ähnlich von der Machart sind und den Style so konsequent durchziehen, mir als Motiondesigner geht da das Herz auf und ich würde gerne noch einen weiteren Teil sehen.
Michael Cera und auch der ganze restliche Cast sind super unterhaltsam.
I'm always up for some spac humour.....I watched this with people who loved it and were cracking up all the way through.........i could tell it was a quality production.....everything was done well....it wasn't slapped together haphazardly.....can't fault the casting or acting (although Wallace the room mate was a big fail for me)......the music was a riot......it just didn't make me laugh.....it was totally a personal thing.............
uhhhhhh hmmmm ive read the comics but this didnt live up to my expectations. thinking back neither did the comics. i think we all know who to blame on this one. michael cera.
Genuinely one of my favourite films of the last few years. Maybe it's Edgar Wright's direction, or Beck's musical contribution, or some of the amazing performances by minor characters like Chris Evans, or the videogame/comicbook themes and nods throughout the film... I can't say exactly, but whenever I watch Scott Pilgrim, I thoroughly enjoy it.

- Scott Pilgrim
This movie is a combination of anime + comic books + video games
You just can't expect when the laughter starts and ends . The story starts with Scott having a relationship with a high schooler then dumps her for Ramona but before he could have her , he must fight 7 evil exes .
Okay , so that's basically it .
I must include the content for this film contains
-The ' L '
- pg- 13 violence
- crazy evil exes including Scott's and Ramona's
and I'm too lazy to say anything else just watch it
I admire Edgar Wright, but this felt like his messiest. I don't think Michael Cera can carry a film the way a duo like Simon Pegg/Nick Frost can. The humor is good and snappy but I can't help but think this could have been a better film. I must also note that I don't really like the graphic stories this was adapted from so this probably just isn't really my thing.
Love this film a ton. Haven't watched in a while so it was great to see it again. One of my favorites of the 2010's. Or however this decade is referred to.
Your Movie Muse Says:
Without a doubt, one of my all time faves. This isn't just an awesome movie about an amazing anti-hero. No, this film is... more. The transitions blow my mind every time I watch it. Mixing technical camera movement with CGI imagery while ensuring neither impedes or feels forced is a true art. Not to mention the delicate balance of over-the-top fight scenes and random musical "conversations"... it's sheer genius. I could go on and on. Kudos to Edgar Wright. I watch this movie at least once a month. Never gets old. There is nothing I don't love about this flick. NOTHING.
