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.
honestly, dont know what film to watch? scott pilgrim. already watched it? scott pilgrim. dont want to watch it? scott pilgrim. hate it? not possible. watch scott pilgrim.
ALSO I READ THE BOOKS AND STEPHEN IS GAY KEEP YALL INFORMED
I'm impressed with how much Wright can pack in to a frame or a cut but I still found it way too forced in script and performance.
Pretty solid cast, and the special effects were great. I would give it a higher score, but it really dragged on in the 2nd half.
my sis and man
Love this movie! So much fun. Such great music but this time I watched while listening to this:
I love diy commentaries and this one is done by a friend of mine and a friend of his. Check out their website at comicbookmedia.com!
Reflection is an interesting thing. I wasn't a huge fan of this film when it was first released but enjoyed it far more upon this second viewing.
Once the over-the-top aspects of the movie are expected one can simply enjoy the ride. And how can one not relish the meshing of music, video games, Seinfeld, hair styles, love, life, death and rebirth?
Aunque es original, al final resulta algo repetitiva. Eso y que el prota es Michael Cera.
This was a really fun movie. Good action, great dialogue and even better visual effects. There's just enough random jokes and asides in this movie to make it a film you want to watch over and over again. The original music is wonderful and the director convinces you that the world of Scott pilgrim is a magical and fun would you can get lost in. Michael cera is great as the affable hero. Mary Elizabeth Winstead is more than just a princess locked away in a castle she holds her own and kicks much ass when needed. The plot is video game goodness and doesn't take its self too seriously. The graphic novels are a great companion piece and fill out the work of Scott pilgrim a little more. In short I will always sit and watch this movie if it's ever on TV.
A good sign of a good movie is when you’re super tired and you’ve got some free time before you go to bed and you figure, “Oh, I’ll just watch 30 minutes of this movie before hittin’ the sack” and you end up watching the whole movie. OK, this isn’t exactly what happened to me but almost… Two days ago, I watched about 40 min. of this movie. It wasn’t my first viewing. I saw this movie first near when it came out back in 2011. Anyway, tonight, I though, “I’ll just watch a little more before bed.” and as it turns out, I watched all of it and managed, in exhaustion, to get my contacts lenses out; skipped flossing…
