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.
I wish that the more i watch this, the more I will warm up to it. The opposite happens. I still adore the whole cast, but whenever there's a fight scene I completely tune out. And that brief dance number with Patel is rancid. But I still give props to Wright for still making a vivid, inventive and entertaining comedy-romance. Too bad it doesn't all work for me since I truly want it to. Moments make me giddy while others make me gag. Wright's energy and pitch-perfect editing is still unparrallel to any filmmaker making movies today.
A pretty exciting and unique approach at a comic book film. Still surprised at the lack of interest general audiences had in this. It seems right up the "mainstream zeitgeist's" alley.
I had a great time with this movie. Loved all the music and game references. Quite enjoyable.

They're soft." :)
I really think this movie should have ended with a treesome.
Love this movie more than anything.
I've re-watched it so many times, and I always find a new joke every time.
Huge fan of this film. It's the best video game movie that's not a video game movie. The creative camera shots, brilliant text overlays, funny pop culture references and terrific cast make this a very special flick everyone should see.
Thumbs Up: Awesome visuals, Wright's typically energetic direction, Michael Cera perfectly cast as Scott, Jason Schwartzman as the smarmy evil ex, solid performances from the rest of the cast, unique take on young adulthood (basically the antithesis of mumble-core), the fact that the enemies turn into coins when Scott kills them.
Thumbs Down: Feels like it's at 11 all the time so its easy to get lost in all the white noise, video-game style plot structure gets repetitive, Ramona is an obnoxious one-dimensional hipster - he totally should have gone with Knives.
Definitely on my list of favorite movies! It's kind of the classic nerdy/awkward guy who comes into his own type of film, but in a hilariously exaggerated way. I especially loved how they really tried to literally blend the movie and the comic together. Not to mention, who better for this role than Michael Cera. Cera portrays the character so naturally that he might as well really be Scott Pilgrim. All around, this was a great comedy to watch with friends or alone on a lazy day
