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…
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.
"WE ARE SEX BOB-OMB! And we are here to watch Scott Pilgrim kick your teeth in! Onetwothreefour!"
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 -…
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.
Wright's frantic visual playfulness and ability to draw out unselfconsciously cartoonish performances works with Godrich's fuzzy rock-and-roll score to enliven an otherwise ironic, twee quest narrative about a hipster learning to respect himself before he tries to make it work with the next in a string of historically unfulfilling romantic relationships. Nobody got on my nerves, which is a feat for a film so fraught with feigned indifference and self-referentiality. A few too many endings spoils Wright's blazing pace, but Scott Pilgrim largely avoids the mistake of taking its casual dramatics seriously and was on the whole an enjoyable laser light show of adolescent angst-romance.
Os quadrinhos são tão bons
O filme até a metade é maravilhoso
Depois tenta espremer tudo de uma vez e retrata muita coisa de forma errada e eu odeio muito o final com aquela dancinha ridícula do Scott com a Knives, falo mermo
RAMONA EU TE AMO
"Scott Pilgrim vs the World" is weird, but in a good way. It was cute and funny and very unique. I enjoyed the music and loved how the movie was cut!
I'm in lesbians with this movie.
Scott Pilgrim must defeat his new girlfriend's seven evil exes in order to win her heart.
This movie is a blast and there is not a thing to dislike about it.
It looks and sounds incredible, the jokes/dialog are really playful and well written. It is perfectly cast, it's inventive and unique. It's ability to laugh at itself is the key to it's success.
I fucking love it!!!!
Visually impressive but lacking a connection either emotionally or character wise.
Scott Pilgrim(Michael Cera) is a 22 year old living in Canada. He is member of the band Sex Bob-omb. After meeting Ramona Flowers(Mary Elizabeth Winstead), he immediately falls for her. But as he pursues her, he discovers Ramona has seven evil exes that he must defeat before continuing his pursuit of Ramona.
Brilliantly executed and extremely funny, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is one of the best comedies I have ever seen. Edgar Wright's quick cut comedy style works very well, along with the various visual jokes. The world of the graphic novel on which the movie is based very much has a video game like feel, which is reflected very well in the film adaptation.
The action sequences are…
I watched this film not to long ago when my media teacher told me that it was a must see. I must say that I completely agree with him, it was one of favorite films of all time. I recommend this film to everyone who loves action, comedy and romance films.
Graphic novel adaptation. Good fun
