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.
Scott Pilgrim is the shit.

This could be the first great hipster parable—or parody—depending on how you look at it. As a postmodern epic for the Nintendo generation, I think it's also a triumph of dizzying cinematic style with rapid fire visual witticisms and plenty of so-bad-that-they’re-good puns. It never misses a beat and kept me laughing from start to finish. It’s the funniest film of 2010.
I dont know why I held off with watching this movie until I did. It was flashy, fun, witty, entertaining, and I've probably never said this before, but Michael Cera was actually good.
After Efects, nivel experto.
Normally I don't really care for Michael Cera but I liked him in this (and also in This is the End). I like movies like this that are quirky and fun and have strange characters. I liked that every time the phone rang it would have RIIIING radiate off of it. I'm also a big fan of old Nintendo games so all of it is right up my ally.
Probably my actual favorite personal movie. Seen twice in the theater and countless times on Bluray (this film benefits immensely from an HD treatment). Edgar Wright's frantic brand of pacing in his editing, blocking, and camera work was a perfect match for a great little series of books.
This blend of comic book/video game/movie/rock show is really quite something, if that sounds like something you'd be interested in. Very fun graphically, quirky dialogue, funny characters and a very unique plot. It all adds up to something different and extremely enjoyable.
What a fun movie. Direction is second to none. My only criticism is that I felt it was made by 90's kids so not everything totally appeals to the current generation. (Tetris, DDR, some of the jokes). But, acting is rightly ridiculous and action is hilarious. Kieran Culkin's scenes are the highlights.
