my favorites that i love primarily because of visuals (colors, symmetry, overall cinematography) regardless of plot, characters and anything else…
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.
I wonder how Marvel and DC feel knowing this is a better comic book movie than anything they'll ever make
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.
A perfect comedy about teen angst and growing up socially awkward, Edgar Wright's Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is drenched in a relentlessly charming atmosphere that never insists on being taken seriously. This video game-comic book movie hybrid is fueled by an excellent screenplay from Wright and Michael Bacall, creating an endless stream of witty dialogue with a constant upbeat tempo and incredible musically-charged fight sequences. The action choreography is flawlessly executed, creating a stylized environment that completely embodies its video game-like aura.
For a story as straightforward as this, Wright's film takes no chances at letting the audience know where they're going next. Just when you think it couldn't get any more insane, Wright comes back around and punches…
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.
O filme se movimenta com tanta elegância e sutileza pra lá e pra cá, mesclando as diferentes linguagens que faz homenagem com o próprio cinema, brincando com o espaço-tempo e a expectativa. É impressionante como o Edgar Wright sabe fazer todos esses elementos se comunicarem tão bem de modo tão natural quanto o folhear de páginas.
The film moves with such elegance and subtlety back and forth,
mixing the different languages that pays homage with cinema itself, playing with space-time and expectation. It's impressive how Edgar Wright knows how to work all of these elements to communicate as well as naturally as flipping through pages.
I will never not associate this film with the beginning of my freshman year in high school. Just one of those movies that came along and I happened to see at the exact right time in my life. So damn good. So much fun. Gotta love it!
Never gets old. Segue sendo um dos meus filmes favoritos.
i can watch this movie everyday
YOUR BF'S ABOUT TO GET F'D IN THE B
I honestly still can't decide what my favorite quote from this is. Also, I didn't fully realize it when it came out, but this perfectly encapsulated the (my) life of the late teen/early-twenty-something at the turn of the decade. Dazed and Confused for those who experienced the great migration from MySpace and Livejournal to Twitter and Tumblr. 2010 was rad.
SO GOOD everything about this movie is amazing ughhhh
Hit me in all the right spots *heart heart*
Figured this is how I'm going to make a general comeback towards the Letterboxd community. For those who've written a…
