Recently I was contemplating making a list of my favorite scenes in film, but I decided that instead of just…
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…
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.
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 -…
Absolutely loved it!
damn funny movie, most excellent...
this film is such a guilty pleasure ... the editing in this is remarkable and everything is so fun
a modern masterpiece
the most accurate depiction of life as a teenager
Ironically, 2010 was probably the last year this wouldn't have been able to be a hit. But in that dark, dreary, thankless summer that gave us some of the poorest Hollywood films of the century, (*glares at Iron Man 2 and Prince of Persia, doesn't even acknowledge Last Airbender) this was exactly the energetic, offbeat, geeky breath of fresh air we needed.
Besides the few problems that come with adapting six books into a two hour film, this is a great version of a great comic book series. So many good actors, so many good lines, such mind-boggling attention to detail and staging of every fight scene and visual gag... It's a crime that this film will unfortunately remain the most overlooked of the decade, but in coming years will be remembered better than both The Expendables AND Eat Pray Love, which both opened better than it.
I have been looking forward to this movie since I saw the first teaser trailer - and I haven’t even read the comics it’s based on! The reason? Edgar Wright. With recent films taking a different angle on the genre (Kick-Ass being the best example), I thought Edgar Wright would do a fantastic and interesting job playing with the genre - especially considering his previous films were also playing with their respective genres in very interesting ways. So to say that I was excited for the onslaught of ads and trailers to finish as I sat in the seventh row of the movie theater is an understatement. And as the beginning credits rolled I was already impressed - 8-bit graphics,…
Funny but it's not my cup of tea, I guess? I think I'll have to watch it again next time. I watched it during the wee hours of the night and that's probably why I didn't get to appreciate it that much.
