Scott Pilgrim vs. the World ★★★★★


I watched Scott Pilgrim at the cinema a decade ago and, while I liked it a lot, I was a little put off about Michael Cera playing Scott. I’d just read the comics and imagined Scott to be more cartoonishly attractive. Ten years later and able to watch the movie without the overt influence of the comics, I now think Cera is great and the movie is one of those rare, faultless films. As I watched, I couldn’t find anything that was slow or unnecessary or padding. It moves with a pace and is vibrant to watch. It’s helped enormously by having a super-talented cast.
