In Las Vegas, this chick was lucky enough to see Edgar Wright's SCOTT PILGRIM VS THE WORLD before all of us!

Hey folks, Harry here furious at not being in Las Vegas, on what is obviously the greatest night that Vegas has ever seen. Sure they've had many of the greatest boxing bouts and mixed martial arts bouts - but man... to see SCOTT PILGRIM VS THE WORLD? That's a whole new level of LET'S GET READY TO RUUUUUUUUUUMBLLLLLLEEEEEE!!!! Now - here's Maria Von Crapp with the nitty gritty details about this extremely rough incomplete work of genius...

Hey I am Maria Von Crapp. A report from the Rave theater/Las Vegas test screening of Scott Pilgrim. I think the biggest takeaway for me from seeing Scott Pilgrim tonight is how much comedy comes from the visuals in it. Every scene is packed with on-screen graphics that add comic-book flourishes or explain what's going on, cutaways that are for the most part really inventive and funny, or just over the top or out of the blue things that cause you to experience the film in a different way than you're used to. While it's not really like anything I've seen before, it's like some mash-up of elements from Fight Club, Kill Bill, Speed Racer, Natural Born Killers and a Michael Cera movie (take your pick). As schizophrenic as that sounds, Edgar Wright found a way to shake all that up and come out with something original and fun and fundamental. I'm not sure how closely the film follows the comic book source, but the plot is pretty simple until it goes totally crazy: Scott Pilgrim, played by Michael Cera doing Michael Cera, is a jobless kind of loser who's in a garage band with his friends in Toronto. He's just started dating an Asian high schooler named Knives who's nuts for him but he then falls for this alternative punk girl who he sees at a party named Ramona Flowers. That's when things start to get kind of bananas. To win Ramona, Scott has to defeat her "seven evil exes" in these insane video-game/anime style fights that basically follow the same kind of Looney Tunes physics as most wire-fu. But there's just something ridiculous about having guys someone like Michael Cera in those situations fighting these angry ex-boyfriends (and girlfriends) of Ramona. It's kind of like a John Hughes movie smashed into The Matrix. Ramona's exes include Chris Evans as a douchey action movie star and Brandon Routh as a douchey bass player in the band of Scott's ex-girlfriend. Routh's character gets his superpowers from being a vegan until he's stripped of them by the Vegan Police who show up because he's duped into drinking some half and half by Scott. Yeah, it's that kind of movie. You're either in for the absurdity or you're not. I thought that was pretty hilarious. One thing made me smile even before the movie began: they redid the Universal logo and theme song as an 8 bit video game version. Anyone who grew up playing those first generation Nintendo games will so get this. The video game references continue throughout the movie, with Scott getting on-screen ratings and earning bonus points in his fights and the villains turning into coins after they're defeated. They throw those visuals in at even the most random of times like when Scott goes to the bathroom to take a leak and a "pee bar" appears that goes from full to empty. The fights with the exes start from crazy and go from there. The first one to show up is an asian guy, and that fight turns into a full-on floating musical number with vampire/zombie back-up singers. There are the fights with Chris Evans and all of his stunt doubles shooting a stupid action movie in toronto, plus Brandon Routh's psychic vegan, a girl from Ramona's experimental phase who calls herself "bi-furious" (actually, that fight turns into one between the ex and Ramona wielding a giant sledgehammer and is one of the more awesome ones) and then two asian twins who fight Scott and his band as a double-headed Forbidden Planet/id-type-dragon. Like I said, you either go with it or you don't. Ultimately it all leads to the ultimate bad guy, Gideon, played with Jason Schwartzman and his usual smarminess, who's basically got his bad-guy lair that Scott has to infiltrate. Like he did in his other movies, Edgar Wright really pushes the genre into whole new areas. This has to be the world's first coming of age/romance/superhero/comic book adaptation/musical/comedy/whatever movie. It has some traces of things you've seen before but not blended together in this way. The cast is all pretty great. Michael Cera's definitely a love him or hate him kind of guy and he pretty much stays in his usual zone here. I didn't recognize everyone in it, and there are a ton of them, but did know Anna Kendrick as Scott's sister, Aubrey Plaza who is hilarious and angry all the time, and Kieran Culkin as Scott's gay roommate. The girl who plays Ramona is particularly great. There's a long way to go to finish it. Nearly everything looked pretty rough down to comp/green screen/wires still being visible. But there was enough going on that you could get a sense of where they're headed with it. I thought it was pretty awesome, all and all, and I really appreciated that it was completely unique. On originality alone it wins. But it also kept me laughing along with it, too, sometimes just at the plain audacity of what's going on the screen.

    by maelstrom_ZERO

    Until the reviewer got to the part where Cera was acting like Cera. Maybe I'm just getting old, but I don't recall Scott Pilgrim acting awkwardly shy and uncomfortable. Scott Pilgrim always came off as being primarily a geek, but filled with all the bluster of an endearing, yet arrogant idiot. Kind of like Fry from Futurama, actually.

    nor have I read the books, but Flowers is probably fighting with a mallet instead of a sledgehammer, the mallet being a ubiquitous weapon pulled from the ether in manga/anime (which I assume is commonly inspired by the mallet-wielding "giant" from Kurosawa's Yojimbo).

    by TehCreepyThinMan

    Look, I want this movie to be great. OH CEILING CAT DO I WANT THIS TO BE SOO FUCKING GREAT!!! I FUCKING LOVE SPACED (the first series) WITH ALL MY MOTHERFUCKING HEART!!! But the fact is that this is still, technically, only an adaptation of the first three books with, maybe, a little bit of part 4 and some input from O’Malley. Then there is the fact that Edgar Wright worked with some nobody on the script and it’s his first movie without Simon Pegg. Soo I am quite a bit apprehensive.<br> <br>Also, Wright is a hard core fucking geek, in the best way, like the rest of us and he knows how to play the publicity game by leaking early reviews on AICN. What we really need is a sneak preview at the Bloor Cinema right in Toronto, not from some expo in Las Vegas, which, in itself, is a place that sells false hope. Wright knows the Bloor well as he sponsored screenings of various double bills during the shooting of Scott Pilgrim.<br> <br>I truly hope that this will be a great movie and it has the potential as the SP comic series is that fucking good and, at it best, comes off as a cross between Kevin Smith and Stephen Chow while my dream is that the adaptation would come off as a mix of, and I’ve said this before, Kung Fu Hustle and Clerks 2.<br> <br>On a side note, Wright hired Bill Pope as his DP for this movie. Pope, in case you didn’t know, has been Sam Raimi’s DP of choice since Army of Darkness and also did the Matrix Trilogy. I, personally, am not a fan of his work as I find his style of cinematography a bit bland but the fact that he DID work on the first Matrix and Spider-man 2 is encouraging although he wasn’t able to save The Spirit.<br> <br>That’s all I’ve got now except that Wright would gain 5000+ bonus points if he used two songs in the movie; Southern Cross by 403 Forbiddena and Decepticon by LeTigre.

    That's EXACTLY what the character needed to be, not some stuttering gimp who looks like he weighs 95 pounds. A young Devon Sawa (Idle Hands, Final Destination) would have been ideal, especially given that he's Canadian. So is Cera but that's like bragging that Ellen Page is too and we don't want that getting out. I can't believe I'm the same age as Sawa AND he got to suck face with a 17 year old Jessica Alba. Lucky motherfucker >:(

    Except on The Quick and the Dead (Dante Spinotti), A Simple Plan (Alar Kivilo), For the Love of the Game (John Bailey), The Gift (Jamie Anderson), Spider-man (Don Burgess) and Drag Me To Hell which reunited Raimi with his Evil Dead 2 DP Peter Deming.<br> <br>Christ, now that I’ve actually went through Pope’s credits, he hasn’t actually worked with Raimi all that much except for a handful of flicks. It seems, to me, that Raimi was only able to get Pope on Spider-man 2 as a result of his work on the Matrix Trilogy which was the project that actually made Pope this coveted DP. Looking at it a bit more, it seems that Pope hasn’t had all that much to do with the quality of the moves he worked on. The Wachowski’s did perfectly fine with David Tattersall on Speed Racer while Drag Me To Hell didn’t suffer from Pope’s lack of participation.<br> <br>I now think Pope is highly overrated. Fuck him.

    by RockLobster800

    the actors arent playing teenagers-all the characters are 23-24, the actual age of the people playing them. They arent in school, or college, theyre young adults bumming around the world (theres a major point of Scott dating a high schooler who is a bit too young for him). Plus, its not emo at all-in the books Sex Bo-omb are an indie band. the fact that there are characters called Stephen Stills and Young Neil should indicate what the musical influences are really.So for anyone complaining, its not high school emo shit, its aimed at the mid 20s slacker much so, Im surprised Kevin Smith isnt attached to it

    Why can't actors fucking ACT, for fuck's sake??

    by spud mcspud

    When did Hollywood get so fucking BLAND that people just started turning up and getting paid for essentially playing THEMSELVES?? Matt Dillon can play a cheesy PI with seriously weird teeth in SOMETHING ABOUT MARY, and a druggie in DRUGSTOR COWBOY. Robert Downey Jr can play Charlie Chapling, Dweeb #2 in WEIRD SCIENCE, and Tony Stark in IRON MAN. Charlize Theron can play Eileen Wuornos in MONSTER, Mia Farrow's clone in THE ASTRONAUT'S WIFE (role is twinned with her role in DEVIL'S ADVOCATE) or an insanely hot cartoon character in AEON FLUX. All requiring these people to ACT, goddamn it!<P> Michael fucking Cera. Lemme guess... He mumbles a lot, looks at the ground, looks down but side to side, mumbles a lot, eventually gets one fucking line that makes the hot chick like him again, and smiles ONCE at the end of the movie. And mumbles.<P> I'm sick of Seth Rogen being a fucking stoned Fozzie Bear twat, Michael Cera being his usual boring incompetent loser self, Jonah Hill the fat ugly unfunny guy you want to fucking punch at a bar, Bill Hader and his Comedy fucking Hairstyle yet again playing the uncool loser adult figure in the massive range he has from ADVENTURELAND to FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL, Jon Heder playing fucking Napoleon Dynamite IN EVERYTHING HE FUCKING DOES - FUCK!!<P> LEARN TO FUCKING ACT, you fucking dipshit overpaid over-cossetted blow-smoke-up-your-ass sycophant-surrounded coccooned in a world of your own self important nancy fucking TWATS! YOU'RE PAID FUCKING MILLIONS, SO FUCKING LEARN TO ACT, AND THEN FUCKING ACT!!<p> Jesus, this fucking generation. John Hughes woldn't have had a hope in Hell of getting a decent performance out of these somnambulistic fucks these days. These fuckers should be forced to watch (500) DAYS OF SUMMER to first understand how the perfect rom-com should be made, then watch everything Joseph Gordon Levitt and Heath Ledger have done, from 10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU to IMAGNIARIUM OF DR PARNASSUS and GI JOE, to see how two top-of-their-game great young actors create great fucking PERFORMANCES, NOT these fucking cloned bored phoned-in tired performances with less passion in them than my last fucking SHIT!!<P> I'll watch SCOTT PILGRIM for all the pizzazz you know Edgar Wright will bring to the table, but Cera... LEARN TO FUCKING ACT!!

    But then, I think I've only seen him in Arrested Development (which was awesome), Superbad, and that movie he did with Kat Dennings (with the kinda long name I forget). Not a huge follower of these books, but it looks interesting. Least he's not Shia LeBoeff (or however you spell it, I'm not looking it up). Oh, and Juno. Almost forgot about him in that.

Watched Raw Deal last night, "Arnold is in a convertible Cadillac with a bigger arsenal than he had in Commando, blasting “Satisfaction” by the Stones, speeding around a heavily guarded inner-city stone quarry (???) and killing bad dudes by the metric ton" after reading that wanted to watch it again, havent seen it in like 10 years.

    Im more of a Commando man myself-if ever Im in the situation where I have a gun on someone Ill be fighting not to scream "Im not going to shoot you between the eyes-Im going to shoot you in the balls!"The world got brighter the day that was filmed. The Scott Pilgrim books are pretty enjoyable-silly and quite frivilous, but fun to read (even though you can tear through them in about 15 minutes and the art work is nothing to look at). The film should be just as fun and silly but better to look at, although I concur its a difficult one to market-I know people who will lap it up, but it might just be too "all over the place" for most people. Im not fussed as long as I get to see it myself, even if it bombs in america and goes straight to dvd here (which seems unlikely for a Wright film). If nothing else, it has Mary Elizabeth Winstead to look at. I'd watch that girl watch paint dry. Particulalrly in that blue wig she has in it

    Ya Commando rules. Its one of those movies anytime its on TV I watch it even though ive seen it a thousand times. They sure dont make bad guys like they used too. Bennett spends nearly the entire movie wearing the following outfit: * Leather pants * A black, sleeveless T-shirt * A chain mail vest * Fingerless leather gloves * A dog chain choker * A flat top * A push broom moustache * A leather belt that he wore around the chain mail vest, making it seem as if he were wearing a skirt. After coming to this and other movie sites almost everyday, I've been turned off on most of the movie fun. I'm very critical of movies now, but thats probably because hollywood are a bunch of suit fucks, who are all bout the $crilla couldnt give a damn about what most of us like.

    by Dingbatty

    a Japanese/manga thing. It doesn't necessarily have to be pulled out of the blue. A character, particularly a massive, dumb male wielding a wooden mallet who is reminiscent of that character in Yojimbo is iconic in manga, anime, and Japanese video games. Golden age Hollywood cartoon shorts characters whack each other with any manner of implements and weapons.
