Summary: Scott Pilgram has found the girl of his dreams in the form of Ramona V. Flowers, but before he can get to her he will have to get by her seven evil ex-boyfriends. An epic of Epieness. Scott pilgrim vs the world. this movie flop at the box office and I do not know why.this movie has good visual effect's and the people that just love video games are just going to love this movie.
Excerpt: Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World is a movie I don't really need to review, because user Yojimbo's review sums it all up. It's a movie I was interested to see, because Michael Cera's style is very understated and quiet and I love Edgar Wright. The outcome: a sloppy one-laugh premise, sugar-coated with annoying special effects and uninteresting characters. I think the main reason this film bombed at the box office is because it is very wrapped up in its own little world.
Summary: I know it might be wierd, but this is one of my favorite movies. It wasn't hard for it to catch me with the comic-like aspects, the fun rock music, the indie-romance between Cera and Phil, and of course the fight scenes. This movie plays out like an Indie-Video game. Very funny and fun. It is far from Cera's best work, but he still performed as expected, himself. This is a movie I feel everybody needs to watch with an open-mind as it is a little quirky.
Summary: This is the perfect movie with perfect cast. I don't even like Michael Cera much, although he was fortunate enough to be in one of the most clever TV shows ever. He's become typecast, but this is one movie which breaks the mold. (Or at least it ignores it and does its own thing.) Edgar Wright has also directed the great movies "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz," and he doesn't disappoint with this.
Summary: I absolutely loved this movie. The visuals were what stood out the most for me. I also thought that the cast was great, they really played their characters well. The plot was great, as well as everything about the movie.
Excerpt: I don't even know where to begin. First, I loved this movie. It was brilliant in its presentation and even under all of the effects, which there were many, the story didn't get lost. And in fact, they usually helped move the story along. Visually, this movie was stunning. If you are a fan of video games or comic books, this film is for you. I do have just a few questions though, SPOILER ALERT AHEAD: 1. Why did Gideon start the League of X's in the first place?
Excerpt: A wannabe rock star slacker living in Toronto meets the woman of his dreams but finds he has to defeat her 7 evil exes to win her heart. To a videogame playing comic book nerd with a love of ironic humour such as myself, Scott Pilgrim (on paper at least) seems like the perfect movie. Essentially Chasing Amy dressed up with Matrix style visuals, it's a comedy that actually fails to deliver much in the way of laughs.
Excerpt: One has to have an open mind in viewing this unique style of directing. This reviewer never expected the style and pace of the film. You have the geeky Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera), the bass guitarist for the band "Sex Bob-omb" who falls for Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) while being in a relationship with Knives Chau (Ellen Wong). Scott is tasked to battle the The League of Evil Exes to continuously date Ramona.
