I FUCKING LOVE COLOURING
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.
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 -…
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 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.
One of the most wildly inventive love stories I've seen and has more flair in a single frame than most films have in their entire arsenal. Edgar Wright makes the transition from Cornetto to comic with ease and is the star of the show despite a cast having a lot of fun with some excellent material. The fights are interesting, the computer game aesthetic is unrivalled and the one-liners dry and quotable.
But Scott is a douche you say? James Bond is still popular says I.
I don't know what was up my ass the first time I watched this that I didn't enjoy it, but man is this movie fun. Sure it can be a little hipstery at times, but its enjoyable. Love the little references that edgar wright brings to his film. Fun times
Didn't like it.
What started out as an imaginative and silly entertainment dragged into an endless video game battle that totally lost me in the ether. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World was just too much of a single thing. The novelty of video game sound effects and graphics just became tiresome after a while. And that boring grind-grind pseudo-punk music really got to me, too.
I keep thinking that a trimmed-down version of this movie might work better. Since I was losing interest in the last act, I feel as though twenty to thirty minutes edited from the running time could have firmed up this flabby picture. For all the zapping and bamming in the final fight scene, there was really no satisfying payoff... it just dragged and dragged, and then.... well, no spoilers here.
Not bad, but Scott Pilgrim weakened as the film wore on. Mileage may vary.
I remember feeling confused the whole time.
Reality is over-rated. Metaphor is much more revealing. Every one has to deal with his loved one's exes - they have to accept their existence, cope with their differences, acknowledge that they are in the past, and move on with the future. We do this in our heads, we do this in conversations, we do this in our subsequent dates - we build the wall that leaves them out.
Or, we can fight them to the death in epic mortal kombat style tournaments.
Which one makes a more interesting movie? They both deal with the same thing - coping and dealing with the past, IE your girl's exes and your own insecurity. Metaphor is real, it is honest, and it is revelatory. Reality is just real, and fine it its own right. They are equally true.
But one has cartoon sounds written in brilliant fonts.
I'd see this over the other version. The real-life version? I'm living that already.
