not like stupid/dull, but as in movies that are so insanely packed with things and ideas and visuals they become…
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…
I wonder how Marvel and DC feel knowing this is a better comic book movie than anything they'll ever make
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.
I forgot how totally awesome this movie is!
One of the most original unique movies I've ever seen. So glad I re-visited this, hadn't seen it since I saw it in theaters. Visually this is absolutely stunning. I'm having a nerdgasm right now.
It's actually hilarious.
Wasn't really paying attention but I've seen it probably more than most movies so it's okay
Who would have expected that the best video game movie would actually be a comic book adaptation?
Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is an innovative tour de force from fan-favorite director Edgar Wright. It's pure visual eye candy from start to finish, clipping along at a ferociously entertaining breakneck pace that masterfully never leaves the audience behind. I could re-watch this till the end of time.
a cinematic masterpiece.
Film #19 of Scavenger Hunt 14
17. A superhero film not based on any Marvel or DC characters
"He punched the highlights out of her hair!"
I don't know if Scott Pilgrim really counts as a superhero film but I do know it's the best film ever made so I don't care.
I tried watching this film when I was like thirteen but I didn't "get" it so I just turned it off. I "get" it now. The only thing I find weird is the fact that I'm convinced Michael Cera could kick my ass.
Also, I had this weird thing where I confused Brie Larson, Mae Whitman, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead so seeing all three of them in this film was a surreal experience.
O diretor Edgar Wright (The World’s End, 2013) consegue aqui uma façanha um tanto quanto impressionante: adaptar de modo muito bem feito a HQ de Scott Pilgrim. Abusando dos efeitos audiovisuais, a obra chama muita atenção por esse detalhe! Outro ponto que chama a atenção é a atuação de Michael Cera (This Is the End, 2013) que tem um excelente desenvolvimento como personagem principal na história. Um aspecto do filme que impressiona é a montagem, com cortes rápidos e muito dinâmicos!! A obra tem toda uma originalidade e personalidade única, própria, mas que não necessariamente irá agradar a todos. Uma grande quantidade de referências a cultura pop/nerd que o público ira pegar, mas com certeza eu não acho que a…
fuck michael cera man
I can't decide if this is the worst movie I've ever seen or the best??? All I know is that I love it.
Plus S/O to I ship It
I get why Mobert was so insistent I see it though, I mean, looook att iiiittttt
Based on Bryan Lee O Malley’s series of graphic novels the film centers on a 22 year old musician called Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera). He meets a girl named Ramona (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and falls for her despite already being in a relationship with a girl named Knives (Ellen Wong). But in order to date Ramona he must defeat her 7 evil exes.
The film is directed by Edgar Wright and this is another case where I’m the odd man out. I’m not a big fan of his work. The Cornetto Trilogy is decent but I don’t love them. And I’m not in love with this film either.
Scott as a character is whiny, indecisive and loathsome hipster cliche, and…
Movies that are slightly off.
(Working on organizing it by similar aesthetic.)
