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.
Fkn loving this movie bruv
Slacker bassist Scott Pilgrim must defeat seven evil exes in order to win the girl of his dreams. An alternate reality comedy that feels like something Monty Python would have come up with if they’d been raised on video games and graphic novels instead of “The Goon Show” and Oscar Wilde.
Muito bom e diferente dos enredos atuais. Usa muito bem a idéia dos vídeos games.
Forgettable movie is different, has it's moments.
Edgar Wright's films are so clever and witty, they are too hard to ignore. 'Scott Pilgrim' hits all the right notes, and then some.
This was a fun kind of guilty pleasure movie. Has to be in anyone’s top 5 video game adaptations. Except I think it was based on a comic book. But the movie plays out like a video game, a very cool world that Edgar Wright owns, and opens up his own style of filmmaking to a new (excuse the pun) level. Michael Cera is not at all annoying, and he is supported by a finely assembled cast. John McClane's daughter was good, Chris Evans and Jason Schwartzman were fun to watch, but damn, did Brandon Routh deliver. He was hilarious, and played the vegan well. I hope we see more of him (since it's clear he's not going to be in Snyder's SUPERMAN re-boot).
Ich liebe diesen Film einfach.
Edgar Wright weiß einfach, das Publikum mit grandiosem Humor, gekonntem Einsatz von Grafischen Elementen, dem spielen mit Licht und Schatten, und verschiedenen Schnitttechniken zu begeistern.
Es gibt nur sehr wenige Filme dich ähnlich von der Machart sind und den Style so konsequent durchziehen, mir als Motiondesigner geht da das Herz auf und ich würde gerne noch einen weiteren Teil sehen.
Michael Cera und auch der ganze restliche Cast sind super unterhaltsam.
I'm always up for some spac humour.....I watched this with people who loved it and were cracking up all the way through.........i could tell it was a quality production.....everything was done well....it wasn't slapped together haphazardly.....can't fault the casting or acting (although Wallace the room mate was a big fail for me)......the music was a riot......it just didn't make me laugh.....it was totally a personal thing.............
