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…
"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 -…
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.
This film is DRENCHED in style, flair and exuberance.
In typical Edgar Wright fashion Scott Pilgrim vs The World is jam-packed with action, humour and sheer awesomeness. It's almost like a love letter to idiosyncratic nerdy pop culture. An EXCELLENT adaptation, often recreating frames from the comic-book shot by shot. It captures the faith of the source material and puts it onto the silver screen in a fantastic blend of anime and video games. YouTube and Vimeo user 'Every Frame a Painting' dedicated a video to Edgar Wright that points out his excellent use of visual comedy, something (as the video mentions) is scarce in contemporary American comedies. Just about everything that makes up a film is terrific here, it looked like the actors & film crew would've had a lot of fun making Scott Pilgrim.
Visuals are pretty unique but the rest is pure filth with Michael Cera never deviating from his usual shtick.
can't stop watching...
Edgar Wright is a genius.
this film has everything. action, comedy, romance, an awesome soundtrack. it's pure frenetic, feel good, fantastic fun. it's a real shame that this movie bombed when it was released in theaters. it deserved better.
One of my personal favourites. I love this film, it's so indie that it's mainstream. It's a gem. It's beautiful in ways, it's hilarious and it's unbelievably entertaining.
As we all know, this movie is riddled with details in just about every aspect possible. For this particular viewing, I decided to focus my attention on the brilliant sound design.
It was neat, no regrets, would watch again.
Based off the beautiful and badass comics of Bryan Lee O'Malley, Edgar Wright has crafted one of the most visually imaginative films of all time. The story is streamlined as well as one can hope for, though certain nuances are lost in translation.
Easily one of the best films of all time.
