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…
"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 -…
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.
The only good video game movie ever made.
One of the extremely few good comic book movies ever made.
The analogy in this movie is just a tad more subtle than Snowpiercer, but much more convincing imo. Its maybe detrimental how much the film relies on the analogy to build the characters—so much has to be abstracted from it for the film to be convincing, and I can see why it doesn't work for everyone. Characters suffer for it.
For a film with such incredible editing during so many scenes, it really relies on convention in the scenes in-between.
The plot of the movie was very linear and repetitive, all the female characters except Scott's two girlfriends had the exact same angry personality, there was little explanation as to why some people had powers and what made everyone thing Ramona was "hardcore" or why Scott was so attracted to her, literally everything that happened was either so random it was boring or so mundane that it was boring. It's very odd that such a boring script would have such a good production, the soundtrack was good and the acting was good and the casting was good but I was so bored I nearly fell asleep several times. I kept waiting for it to get more complicated but then he fought most of the girl's exes and they decided not to have a relationship after all and then the credits rolled.
Of the papal DPs, which do you all prefer? Bill or Dick?
O filme combina a sensibilidade do indie/punk rock com a dinâmica visual da graphic novel em que foi inspirado, misturados à energia vibrante de um vídeo-game, humor peculiar e referências à cultura pop. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World é um filme que exibe uma energia contagiante desde o primeiro segundo de projeção. É diversão do começo ao fim.
once you were a vegone now you will be gone
Cool, smart, fun, cool.
im truly embarrassed with the feeling of unbridled joy this movie brings me everytime i see it.
Scott Pilgrim plays out like a live-action video game, sound effects, tokens, pee bar and all. It's a great rift off the all to typical teen comedy. It has angst, attitude and quirkiness thanks to Edgar Wright and it still finds time to be utterly hilarious. Michael Cera plays his typical awkward young man which is no surprise. However, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Anna Kendrick, Kieran Culkin, Aubrey Plaza, Chris Evans, Brandon Routh, Brie Larson and Jason Schwartzman bring a lot of wit. So much sass to go around; it's quite entertaining.
