As an uber fan of the books, I couldn't face just buying the standard blu-ray release of this movie. Though upon research the special features were pretty much the same if not worse vs the standard disc.
The movie if you have not seen it is a fantastic conversion from the graphic novels. Michael Cera is the perfect Scott Pilgrim - there is in fact not a single mis-cast character in this movie.
The actual steelbook is really nice, its unusual to see a landscape depiction across the cover - and the image is actually embossed too so adds a bit extra to the quality.
The steelbook version is absolutely worth the extra money if you're a fan of the books or movie.. or just relate to the story of finding the literal girl of your dreams (then having to fight her ex-lovers for her)
Scott Pilgrim vs The World was not a film I was expecting to be able to sit through much less love. From the trailers, the cover of the Blu-ray disk and the premise of the movie I was not expecting what turned out to be a really enjoyable movie that was as unique as it was fun.
This is definitely not a movie for everyone and certainly not for someone who enjoys their films to be grounded in reality. There is so much in this movie that would be on most film makers 'do not do under any circumstances' list but for some reason it works here.
I could go into great detail about what was great about this ridiculous story of a young man who has to battle 'seven evil exes' in order to win over a young woman he is infatuated with, but instead I will ask you to simply take a chance on it. The film is highly surreal and bares little resemblance to reality but that only ads to its charm.
VIDEO AND AUDIO PRODUCTION
The picture and sound quality of this film is top notch.
It is a great film to watch in blu-ray because the hyper clarity of the world in which this movie is set. The action sequences are well filmed and look brilliant in high def and the ultra high contrast and vivid colours will give your TV a thorough testing.
The audio as well can't be faulted. The sound is immersive but not overwhelming and only ads to the quality of the film.
Overall this is a highly enjoyable film that succeeds as both an enjoyable movie and a great Blu-ray production. Again it is not for everyone but for people looking for something a little different I recommend giving this a try.
Where do you even start with this film? I know I'll start by saying it's frickin amazing! One of my all time favourites, it's just so hilariously stupid, silly, dumb etc... The cast do an absolutely brilliant job, some of the quotes and one liners still have me on the ground laughing even after the 100th or so watch of this film. Just the way in which the film was shot gives it that video game type feel to it which is very cool, the music is top notch. This is just one of those films you can watch over and over and over again and never get bored.
The characters in the Scott Pilgrim comics are inherently likable, because they are drawn cute. Comic characters can get away with things real actors can't. Bart Simpson or the South Park boys would be insufferable if they were portrayed by real children.
Maybe this is why, even though I enjoyed the SP comics, I found myself disinterested in Scott's and Ramona's movie romance. He's whiny, a jerk and has no charisma to make up for it. She's aloof and seems arrogant. What do they see in each other? I would have preferred to see the movie without these two in it. I liked Knives, Wallace and Scott's Band.
'Scott Pilgrim vs. The World' is an amazing story about a 22 year old who forms a band called 'Sex Bob-omd & Scott & his friends start becoming a group in big concerts. Scott (Michael Cera) has met the girl of his dreams 'Ramona Flowers' (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) but, theres one thing that Scott doesn't know is that she has seven evil exes. So Scott has to defeat all seven guys Ramona has dated but, the storyline is also the fights where it's happing in a video game.
Brilliant for anyone who is, or going to be, or has been a teenager! If you like superheroes &/or gaming add an extra star :-)
A well put together film the amazon ratings are as I'd expect: mostly loved with small amount who just didn't 'get it'- shame! No film will suit all tastes but this is a film that's worth a go imo: if you like it then its highly likely you'll love it. Wish they'd make a sequel to it!
Scott Pilgrim is in his early 20's and is dating a high schooler named Knives Chau. Things are innocent and sweet until Ramona Flowers comes along. Instantly lovestruck by Ramona, Scott begins to date her whilst cheating on Knives, what Scott didnt bargain on though was having to fight Ramona's 7 evil exes in order to date her. A hilarious rom-com with enough action for the dudes and enough romance for the ladies. Scott Pilgrim is the perfect family film.
