Here's a dude you can hate for having seen SCOTT PILGRIM VS THE WORLD last night! Now with Video Reviews!

Published at: Jan. 20, 2010, 7:48 a.m. CST

AAACKKKK!!! Jealousy thy name is Harry Knowles because that is what I am. This just sounds like such a great experience. The other day I got to see HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON in 3D and that was pretty cool. To see a rough print of a film in 3D no less... well, it's pretty damn cool, but to see a balls out crazy awesome Edgar Wright comedy action adventure romance early... to see Edgar's use of a whole host of new trickery... what a great experience, because in August when they see it again, they'll appreciate fully how far the film has come and how much work was put in... but they'll have the appreciation of seeing the film work, without all the expensive magic in place. Based more solidly on performances before everything is polished just so. This is our second look at tonight's screening and again... it is Gold!





My wife and I were lucky enough to attend the Las Vegas screening of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World tonight. She got passes through her work, and we made time to get down there in the pouring rain (WTF VEGAS!) and get great seats. When we signed in, we were told it was a mix between Juno and Mortal Kombat. Yes...that's right. Confused, a few attendees in my section thought it was either Scott Pilgrim, or Kick-Ass. Both exciting prospects. Finally, 7pm rolled around and some lady with a microphone went to the front and announced that it was Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. Exciting! She then proceeded to give us the usual 'test audience' disclaimers...early sound, FX work still not done, etc...but then we were sent away to the film. Right off the bat, I knew I was going to love it. The Universal Logo was rendered in 8 bit with the Universal theme a MIDI version. Awesome. I knew I was again going to love it when the familiar opening from The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past (triforce spinning) cued the opening shot, a tilt down to an exterior of a house. Awesome. From there, it was a mixture of Edgar Wright's usual frenetic camerawork with some unbelievably slick transitions, and while I knew nothing about the story behind the comics, I knew from the start it would be a fun ride. For those of you not in the know (like I was), I won't spill out each plot point in detail, but I will point out that Wright did some incredibly unique things to capture the spirit of a comic book. The film is a very well thought out mix of video game and comic books. Plot points about getting an 'extra life' and a 'Pee meter' as Michael Cera relieves himself add so much to the story. Now, usually we'd see Simon Pegg and Nick Frost on the screen, but neither of those two made this film. Instead we get Michael Cera (Scott Pilgrim) and his band and many girlfriends behind him. For starters, Cera is Michael Cera. He's always cute, charming, and you know exactly what you're going to get from him. That's not taking anything away from him, he's great in this...but still, he's Michael Cera. His gay room mate Kieran Culkin is hilarious in this, he steals virtually every scene he's in. Then we have his band, Kim (Alison Pill), Stills (Mark Webber) and Young Neil (Johnny Simmons), they are all a lot of fun to watch, if not a little under-utilized. I think the real show stoppers are the '7 exes', who Cera has to battle in order to win the heart of the always-coloring-her-hair-differently Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead). Cera always goes from girl to girl, but thinks Ms. Flowers is the girl of his dreams (technically, she is). She has a unique past with a series of ex boyfriends that are all, I guess, the jealous type. And while the film is usually based in reality (as much as most comic books are), when these 'exes' take the screen, everything changes. Starting with Matthew Patel (Satya Bhabha), we get to see just why Edgar Wright is, IMO, one of the most talented filmmakers out there. The fight scenes in this film are ludicrous. They are incredibly high energy, completely unique from one another, and a total riot. He has to fight through the aforementioned Patel, Lucas Lee (Played by Chris Evans who looks kind of like Wolverine, if Wolverine were hilarious), Todd Ingram (Brandon Routh, the metrosexual vegan), Roxy Richter (Mae Whitman, or as Arrested Development fans would know her as…"Her?"), twin asian keyboardists (sorry, can't remember their names) and finally Gideon (Jason Schwartzman). I know it doesn't come out until August 17th, but what they have right now (other than some rough audio patches and a lot of unfinished effects) is pretty damn remarkable. Edgar Wright has once again knocked it out of the park. I don't know how commercial this film can be, due to it's subject matter (it's basically for nerds only, my wife liked it, but not nearly as much as I did), but Goddamnit it's awesome. On a side note, the woman in front of me had her Blackberry out and was reading some e-mails about The Fast And The Furious 5's crew list, she had a link to the NEW ending of The Wolfman (which she responded, she would "watch it tomorrow", and a couple of other things that I can't remember). If you use this, call me ocelittle.

    Avid Zelda Fan?

    by Chorlton01

    Really? You admit that in public? I like Zelda as much as the next man, but you wouldn't catch me calling myself an "Avid Zelda fan." Thats sort of like saying that you don't think you can go on anymore unless John Waters makes a film of the day Liberace and Rock Hudson went to that Village People concert and met Judy Garland. Sort of.

    Sorry dude, but I am. I used to collect them, have almost all of the games in their US, UK and Japanese incarnations. There's a lot of Zelda music in this movie (only the opening shot uses it as soundtrack for the flick, the rest of it is just in the background as Young Neil plays his DS. And it's mostly LTTP music).

    I’M STILL NOT CONVINCED, HERE’S WHY…..

    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.

  • Jan. 20, 2010, 4:36 a.m. CST

    OOPS, RAIMI'S WORKED WITH POPE SINCE DARKMAN....

    by TehCreepyThinMan

    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.

    Cera is Charisma Vaccuum

    by Bileranter

    He's the on screen equivalent of "dead calm" which is a pity since I do think this film will be quite something. Never thought Cera wasa good choice for Scott. Edgar Wright probably got these review posted himself since he is a rather deft hand at the ol' internet marketing thing. Him, or the guy he pays to live on the internet and say nice things about him.

    by Yotz Von Frelnik

    I think I've only ever seen one Cera movie, but from what I see and hear he does play the meek lovable nerd in everything. He does it well, of course, but there's only so far you can go playing the same tone. This should probably be his last role in that mould.

Declaring your ignorance (Pilgrim has nothing to do with "emo," whatever you think that is) and proceeding to talk out your ass about something doesn't seem like the best use of time.

Well multiply that by 2 when you realize that you are seeing the film (albeit not completed) 8 months before everyone else. It bumps up the excitement. I enjoyed the ride, I wasn't sitting there thinking "Oh! Man, he's wearing an indie band t-shirt, what a try hard movie." It was enjoyable. It's fucking Edgar Wright!

    ...although I have to question why you're hanging around comic shops with underage Twilight fans yet apparently can't be bothered to pick up the comic in question. Maybe books aren't what you're looking to pick up, eh? Sounds like you're the one with the woody, buddy. <p>If you're so keen on my views, these are they: all of the casting seems spot-on except for the most important part: "Michael Cera playing Michael Cera" scares the shit out of me. The Pilgrim of the books is that special blend of ignorance and confidence, and the exact opposite of the shy bookish dork Cera always plays. In other words, I'm looking forward to a disappointing adaptation but an entertaining movie in and of itself.

    by anniesocial

    Anybody that thinks Cera isn't right for Scott Pilgrim needs to go back and read the books, especially the first one. Scott is a shy awkward guy lacking in any confidence. He isn't cool. He's a dork. I think people want Scott to be cool, but he never really is.

    Anniesocial - YOU go back and read the books

    by Merlox

    because you are dead fucking wrong if you think Scott was shy and awkward with no self confidence in the first(or ANY) of the books. Scott Pilgrim has TOO MUCH self confidence. So much that he can't even see what a loser he is mooching off of Wallace and dating high schoolers. Scott Pilgrim is an AWESOME Loser, not some shy kid who comes out of his shell. This is why Cera is wrong. He consistently plays a shy bumbling kid with little to no self esteem. I know he's an actor(and I really DO hope he pulls this off) but thus far in his career he hasn't shown the chops for one of the most ENERGETIC (shy? you think he's SHY? characters in recent comics.

    by anniesocial

    Read it again. Look at the first volume. He nervously stalks Ramona at a party and when he does try to talk to her, he is totally bumbling and lacking in self-confidence. He has so little self-confidence that he is sort of almost-dating a 17-year old. When asked why, he says because it "is easy". He is a shy bumbling kid. Read the part where he first asks out Ramona. It is a silly rambling scene. Even Ramona says he is lame. He doesn't even have the courage or confidence to properly tell Knives he is now dating Ramona. Or look at how he goes catatonic when his ex-girlfriend Envy calls him up. The only thing Scott has confidence in is his video game playing, his fighting, and his bass - which he isn't that good at anyway. The cool thing about the books is that the character grows. He does eventually become more confident and a better person, but he isn't really all that cool. Book 4 is where he gets some confidence and maturity. But he's still kind of a dick. He is completely clueless about how his behavior affects those around him. Book 5 is all about this and his growing empathy and awareness. I think people that think he is cool are kind of missing the point. Almost ever other character in the series is cooler than Scott.

And the clientele that likes this shit are just SO punchable. 'Fuckin ZELDA dude! Remember Zelda???' <P> Guh. I know you guys love the comics and all, but again I just want to throw in my two cents and say this shit sounds fucking retarded.

    Question for ocelittle:

    by The Garbage Man

    You mention an August 17 release date. Did you get this from Wikipedia or did they say that at the screening? I ask because IMDb doesn't have a date for it and who knows where Wiki got the info.

  • Jan. 20, 2010, 4:25 p.m. CST

    agree to disagree annie...

    by Merlox

    I never said Scott was cool. I said he was an awesome LOSER. I'll concede that he might be nervous and rambling in his encounter with Ramona but Scott is so over confident in everything else he does to over compensate. In THAT regard Cera doesn't have the chops. The last thing I want to watch is Micheal Cera being Micheal Cera. He was great in Arrested Development but 6 years later the awkward teen act is tired and boring. Going into it KNOWING he'll be doing the same old schtick is irritating and a bit of a let down. The rest of the cast is SUCH a win too. And Edgar Wright rocks my socks off...but too much of this rests on Cera's performance, which in recent movies has grown a bit stale.

    Loser protagonists = self hatred from us

    We as internet geeks and emo hipsters hate seeing ourselves portrayed as such in films and tv, because we want our heroes to be better than we are.

    Please, no more video reviews! Ever again!!!

    With geeks, the veil of the internet is everything. No one wants to actually see them. They usually end up looking like Screech inflated up to various sizes with an electric bike pump. How can you trust a review from someone who looks like that? I didn't even get past the first sentence before I clicked that red X like my life depended on it.<p> That being said, ever since Edgar Wright got on board, Scott Pilgrim has been the safest bet for movie of 2010 that cannot fail. I had a few doubts there with the casting of Cera (not that I don't like him, but Scott always struck me as BETTER looking than the chicks he was dating. Although it's hard to tell with the thick black line drawing style), but I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.

    I have to agree with Annie on this

    Anniesocial I think has been most accurate in describing the type of person Scott Pilgrim is. Yes Scott does act over confident but it's to hide the fact he is an awkward loser, and does whatever is easiest for him.<br> <br> Is Cera the best person to cast as Scott, I cant comment til I have seen the film, but the best person to ask about the character of Scott and if Cera is a good representation is Bryan Lee O'Malley

    because edgar wright has been money in the bank for me, and mary elizabeth winstead is one of those actresses who just mesmerizes me to the point that i will sit through ANYTHING she is in, in its entirety.
