First off, the title. There IS no other way to describe this movie.

I dont care if Im being biased. Scott Pilgrim vs The World is the best movie ever. No I didnt read the comics, Yes Im a gamer.
Im sure we all know the Story, but heres watered down version for the slow people. Scott pilgrim has to defeat his Girlfriends (Ramona Flowers) Seven evil Ex-boyfriends. Plain and Simple. Something about Micheal Ceras character in this movie reminded me of his role in "youth in Revolt" but still nontheless just as loveable and funny. The movie (if you havent seen already) is filled to the brim with tonnes of video games references,(Mortal Kombat, Arcade games, Zelda, Classic 8-bit Style games) and Anime action (self explanitory). So much so that you wont catch them all in your first watching.

Scott Pilgrim (movie) is Oozing with style and flair, on top of that like "The other guys" this movie is a laugh a minute, so you dont have to be a video game junkie to enjoy yourself. Oh Yeah and Lets not forget, THIS MOVIE WAS FILMED HERE IN TORONTO!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yeah!!!.

You would think a movie like this would have not so good as not all comic book movies are the greatest (Daredevil, Hulk 2003, The Punisher) but this movie turned out well. I remember seeing the comic books in store but never read them, Well now im gonna start. Scott Pilgrim VS The World is a fun, action packed and enjoyable movie. Buy a ticket and watch it today.
An Epic of Epic Epicness. An Epic of Epic Epicness. An Epic of Epic Epicness. An Epic of Epic Epicness. An Epic of Epic Epicness. An Epic of Epic Epicness.

Let THE EX-BATTLES Begin in This Zany, Bizarre, Action-Packed Romantic Comedy!
We’ve all had nightmares about our girlfriend’s ex-boyfriends; some make us feel insecure, some make us feel proud while some…well, makes us forget about the whole thing. But hopefully, none of us have experienced being assaulted by the hordes of ex-boyfriends of the person we are dating. Well, those who are familiar with the graphic novel series by Bryan Lee O’Malley may still have a hard time preparing for the film adaptation “SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD”. …

After 16 years of slamming Hollywood studios for never getting our video game movies right, we finally have one that gets it exactly right. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is a video game movie, even though it doesn't have a basis in any actual video games.     Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is more of a visual and cultural tribute to video games than anything. Every other element of the movie, including the plot, takes a backseat to the list of power bars, status updates, and special …

In terms of actors today, Michael Cera is kind of overrated. He plays the same character in every single movie he's in: the awkward, geeky teen who's either anxious to lose his virginity or just be generally geeky. That doesn't mean that every once in a while, he can turn in a good performance, and Scott Pilgrim is definitely one of them. This is an incredibly awesome movie, and epic of epic epicness indeed. It's also kind of hard to put into words unless the person you're talking …

This movie grabs your attention from the display of the Universal Logo.  The Universal theme music is like  the sound of an old video game.   Scott Pilgrim seems to drift from dream to reality and the scenes rapidly shift with written text to explain who the various characters are.       Scott is in a band with an ex-girlfriend and two other friends.  He lets them know that he is dating Knives, a 17 year old Chinese girl.  Everybody seems against …

Scott Pilgrim. This has got to be one of the funniest, most creative, most interesting, most entertaining movies I have seen in a while. I could probably think of many more adjectives to describe this wonderful film, but I'm afraid that you'll have to make do with this review. From the minute I saw the opening logo for this movie I knew it was going to be something special and when I finally saw this in theatres, I was not disappointed. It does have its problems, but it will most certainly …

I saw this movie on my friend's birthday. We talked it over and were picking between this, The Other Guys, and Vampires Suck. I'm so glad we picked this. Scott Pilgrim encapsulated the idle young adult generation so perfectly that I have no choice but to give this a 100%. Hell, if I hadn't seen Kick-Ass, How To Train Your Dragon, or any of the oscar bait movies, Scott Pilgrim easily could have taken the number one spot. This truly got robbed at the box office and I only hope its doing …

Just imagine for a second that your life is a video game.  One where the potential exist for you to beat up bad guys, live each new day of your life as though it were a level where you score points, get extra lives and pull off amazing stunts because you simply can.  This is exactly what Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is.  A movie that turns the life of one young man into a video game.  It's zany, it's over-the-top but it's a lot of fun.  If you don't like Scott …

Scott Pilgrim ROCKED my 8-bit world!
I heard about the Scott Pilgrim movie about 2ish years ago and my response was: No... no way.  How can they even begin to capture the pure epic awesomeness of Bryan Lee O’Malley’s comic book series Scott Pilgrim compressed into one movie?  It can't be done.  Wait?...  What is this you say ... Michael Cera's going to play Scott Pilgrim?  The cutie pie guy that fans the flames for geek girls everywhere?  Well that changes everything.      …

Spoiler-Free Sneak Preview: Scott Pilgrim vs. the World
One of my projects is watching Rotten Tomatoes' list of the worst movies of the last decade and, in doing so, I've pontificated at length on the misery that is movies based on video games. To recap: there are a bunch on the list, many are directed by Uwe Boll (perhaps the worst director of all time), the most critically-acclaimed video game movie ever is the not-so-great Mortal Kombat. Video game movies usually take themselves too seriously and fail by having to stick to story lines that …
