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.
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…
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.

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 -…
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.
Scott Pilgrim should serve as the definition of 'awesome'. Few studio films these offer as much imagination, energy and creativity as Edgar Wright's adaptation.
From the 8-Bit Universal introduction to the closing 'Continue' countdown, this is an arcade-inspired nostalgia trip which thrills every time.

Very original, video game style movie. Maybe a bit more style than substance, but perhaps that was the point. Seeing this makes me wish things would have worked out with Wright & Marvel.
I'm so happy I've watched this movie. It's such a fun and weird experience because it has a comic-book vibe to it with all this odd comic-book characters. I don't know, it's just unique. You could compare it to Kick-Ass, but to be honest, Kick-Ass doesn't stand a chance. It's not nearly as singular or as funny as Mr. Pilgrim.
Tras una trama en apariencia muy chorras, Scott Pilgrim tiene que vencer a los 7 Evil Exes de Ramona Flowers para poder salir con ella, se esconde una reflexión sobre las parejas y como cada uno tiene un pasado que deberíamos asumir, vamos, que todo el mundo tiene Exes malvados que aunque no vengan a matarte si que saldrán tarde o temprano para joder en una conversación o te los vas a encontrar un día paseando por la calle y te los van a presentar (Fight!!).
Y hasta aquí la parte metafísica de la película. Que por otro lado tampoco es un mensaje tan complicado, ni original. Lo que hace especial a Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World es sin duda…
This movie is perfect. A timeless mix of teenage angst and game/comic themes makes this a wonderful experience.
I can be almost embarrassingly obvious in my choice of favourite films, especially given that I was a child of the 1980s and now a musician and lover of high comedy - The Godfather, Manhattan, The Empire Strikes Back, This is Spinal Tap, etc. Here is a film that might at least deviate a bit from everyone's favourites.
The first time I saw this in the theatre I could not believe Edgar Wright's style and design visually and sonically for this film which integrated both vintage video game aesthetics and indie-rock culture. Furthermore, it remains hilarious both in its script and the central performance by Michael Cera that was note-perfect and, in a subtle way, a send-up of his goody-two-shoes…
