SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD... 'Nuff Said, Says The Enemy!!!

Published at: Aug. 4, 2010, 3:01 p.m. CST by merrick

Hey there people, Last week I had the opportunity to take in an early screening of this film. Instead of calling myself "press" and showing up about an hour and a half early, bypassing the folks who've been waiting all day, I switched things up. I joined a friend who'd invited me to wait nearly eleven hours for a free showing of the movie. The last movie for which I did such a thing? Spending the night waiting for THE PHANTOM MENACE when I was 5 years old. I despised that movie and asked my dad to take me home during the first Jedi Council sequence (he didn't). Though I didn't spend the night outside of the legendary Alamo Drafthouse on South Lamar (in Austin), an 8:30 AM arrival for a 7:30 PM screening of a movie I knew little about (not having read the comics) was still a daunting a notion . Here I'll cut to the chase and say that every second of SCOTT PILGRIM was worth the eleven hour wait. It was one of the most unexpected and completely satisfactory films I've seen in a while. Even at its worst, PILGRIM is filled with cinematic artistry and is brilliantly executed. Its smooth combination of romantic comedy, action/adventure, American/Japanese comic style, and its themes and story telling make for one hellava experience. The closet comparison would be KICK-ASS, if it were Asian made. Disappointingly enough, like KICK-ASS, this is a hard idea to sell to an audience. Both films are fantastic, but the trailers just don't do the deed; thus making it hard for either to succeed at the box office. That is why I fully encourage everyone who is going to see this movie to tell your friends, family, colleagues even your neighbor's dog. At its heart, SCOTT PILGRIM is a romantic comedy - there's no denying it. Boy (Michael Cera) meets girl (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and, as in many movies, boy attempts to get the girl. As shown in the commercials, she has "seven evil exes" who challenge the guy from Superbad to fights - action and adventure come into play during their frequent battles. These scenes vary from Street Fighter like combat to Scott Pilgrim's band fighting a two man DJ group (the soundwaves from their music makes animals that brawl with one another). All of these fights are unique in their own way, there's little repetition and a constant sense of organic-ness and freshness. Much of the movie is heavily influenced by the style we'd see in video games, comics and television from both North American and Asia. Characters are introduced with different graphical pieces of information - i.e. social statistics, personal rating, and skill level. Depending on the scene, even small things like knocking on a door will show up on-screen in word form. During intense battles, characters run towards each other amidst huge, flash like graphics. Other times you'll see 'life meters' and 'side scrolling' shots with the words "KO", "FIGHT", or "SUDDEN DEATH". If you're epileptic, I would avoid watching this - there are many bright colors and a lot of fast flashing throughout the film. But it's little details like this that allow director Edgar Wright (SHAUN OF THE DEAD, HOT FUZZ) to really immerse you in his style and vision - you feel you're in a video game or comic book for the duration of the movie. I counted a little less than two dozen characters in SCOTT PILGRIM, all of whom have some amount of dialogue. Obviously, some of them speak more than others, but all of the cast is at the top of its game - they feel as believable as they can considering the craziness surrounding them. Even Michael Cera, who doesn't stray too far from the 'nerdy kid trying to get a chick' gag, is still enjoyable to watch. What he does with his Scott Pilgrim character helps him to stand out more here than in his previous films. Mary Elizabeth Winstead is exceptional as Ramona Flowers - she's a very intimate, mysterious, yet comedic person with connections to many of the other characters. The score is one of coolest in recent memory, and is as badass the movie itself (the Universal Studios logo has an 8-bit introduction for example). Small things like the baseline from SEINFELD make a musical cameo, and Scott Pilgrim's band "Sex Bob-Omb" plays a vital and entertaining roll in the movie - you'll hear their original work, and (as mentioned above) the group is critical in Scott's smackdown against Evil Exes. The skillful use of (and understanding of) music in this film is as important as the movie's propulsive visual style. Creatively, this movie worships many, many of the things that are cool about being young, or being tuned in to pop culture in general. It does this well, and makes Geekiness not only something to be proud of…it makes it seem exciting. So there you have it. An eleven hour wait in the Texas Summer heat, through about five or six rain showers and a disastrous donut run. Absolutely worth it. This is definitely worth seeing several times over. With THE EXPENDABLES releasing on the same day, it'll be a decidedly rare and awesome weekend at the movies. In a cinematic abyss of cookie cutter unoriginality, SCOTT PILGRIM truly does stand out from the crowd, amidst only a small handful of other noteworthy titles this year (TOY STORY, KICK-ASS, INCEPTION, and hopeful TRON LEGACY and EXPENDABLES). I've said this several times before in this review and I'll end by saying it again: go see this film.

    by mukhtabi

    Twas a sneak preview last Monday night in Indianapolis. It did not change too many details, rather truncated and sped up things so it all takes place in one season in Toronto. I think it's every bit as awesome a film as The Enemy contends it to be. And I'm not a sixteen yr old.

    Sorry, but I can't take a review from a 16 year old seriously

    by Rob0729

    I can still remember the crap I liked at 16 and think back to what a moron I was. I loved every crappy horror, teen comedy, and b-movie action movie no matter how bad the acting, direction, or script was. Heck, if he was making movies when I was 16, I might think Michael Bay was a genius director. <br><br> No offense to the reviewer, but I question the tastes in movie by any 16 year old.

    by Traumnovelle

    Everyone judges every movie before they see it. You don't have an idea in your head of what a movie is after you see the trailer? I said it 'looks like' it's tailor-made for 16 year-olds (Side note: I don't see how that can be refuted). I didn't make a definitive declamation. To me, it looks like that. <P> You know what else is 'nifty'? How pissy Scott Pilgrim fans get when anyone says that the movie doesn't look that great.

    My bull shitometer is going into hyper drive. You mean to say that at the age of FIVE you HATED PM and asked your dad to take you home? You are either a) incredibly smart and have a MENSA level IQ or 2) trying too hard to impress and have been caught with your pants down telling porkies.

    by Traumnovelle

    I thought Ray Liotta's 'No Escape' was the greatest movie ever when I was sixteen. Literally, I came home from the theater and told my friends it was the best movie I had ever seen. 16 year-olds are fucking morons.

    The ads for this are TERRIBLE!

    by D.Vader

    Fire the ad men! Hire the Mad Men! The commercials fucking BLOW! <p> The ONLY one I thought was decent was the one that features Chris Evans hitting Scott Pilgrim. He says something like "You don't know about the League of Evil Exes?... Coming to kill you? To control Ramona's love life... ?" <p> Scott's like "No," and then Chris Evans is all apologetic- "Oh! Then here, let me help you up..." <p> Then BOOM! He punches him before Scott has gotten to his feet. Heheh. That's funny. <p> Then they TOTALLY ruin the joke and the great pacing of the ad by throwing up the title card and ending it with this retarded spin-towards-the-camera shot of Scott turning and saying quickly under his breath "I want to take them apart", and I swear the screen is already fading to black in preparation for the next advertisement before he's even finished his sentence. <p> Its so fucking amateurish and goofy, like a college student threw it together at the last second (and maybe that's who did it, so the studio would save money). <p> But really, its bad bad bad.

    All of my points are still valid. I wouldn't care if it was Scorsese's son, if he's sixteen he doesn't know a lot. It's just a fact. AND if he actually demanded to go home 15 minutes into Phantom Menace he's a bratty shithead. Maybe it was actually Merrick that demanded to go home..

    It's annoyingly verbose AND the whole review reads like he just cherry-picked from OTHER reviews, possibly of different movies entirely. When I say sixteen year-olds are dumb as shit, I don't mean they 'can't write good'. I mean they plain ol' don't have the life experience to give sound advice, on films or anything else. Maybe Pokemon or something, I don't know. <P> Also, I think Scott Pilgrim looks like a two-hour migraine put to film.

    Why do you have to be some kind of douchnozzle and cry out 'fag'? at the guy who wrote the review? It just makes you look lame to people who don't know you, and confirms your jackassery to those that do. Congrats. And, just 'cause someone's young who reads this site, or posts a review, don't think he doesn't have the chops to do so. Come on, haven't you seen ALMOST FAMOUS? And... if he reviews it as paramount to existence and worth standing around all day and night to get in, who are you to tell him he's wrong? I can't stand all the assholeyness simply for the sake of oneupsmanship. I hope that Wright and Co see this, and feel that they've done what they set out to do... make an entertaining film from a good comic series.

And short story. <P> D.Vader, it IS petty and snide. My main thing is I really, really don't think Scott Pilgrim looks any good. I shouldn't have lambasted the kid just for his age. But still, I'm sure you loved many classic movies as a 16 year-old, but are you really prepared to say you didn't like ANY movies that you look back on now with shame? I bet you did. I loved tons of great, quality movies as a kid but I also loved tons of bullshit too.

Because if you just sit down and ask "wait, why is the band name Clash At Demonhead which was also the title of an obscure shitty NES game funny?" then you'll realize that there's nothing badass about making things in an 8bit style "just because". I really wish the nerd set would accept that old pixellated graphics were a byproduct of technical limitations, not an intentional and desired "art style".

    target audience. That's good to know. And if this is Merrick's kid, he's probably seen a shit ton more movies than the average 16-year-old. Still ... a critical response from a 16-year-old?

    Sorry, but a 16 year old knows shit

    by BP_drills_america_a_new_asshole

    Fact. When I was sixteen I thought I knew it all. I thought Independence Day was greater than Star Wars. I thought everyone over 20 was old and jaded and knew jack shit about life. You grow some hairs and voila you think you've seen and done it all. The advice I'd take from a 16 year old is whether I should order the luchtime special deal at my burger joint.

    I don't think Scott Pilgrim looks good either...

    by D.Vader

    But every review here on AICN has been positive. I think we could find other reasons to trash the review other than the fact that the guy is 16.

    I had great taste in movies when I was 16, too....

    by ClayG

    ...still..I was 6 years old when A New Hope came out, and it takes more than a movie that tries to look like a videogame, and has a plotline about some teenage schmuck trying to battles some girl's exes so he can date her, to impress me. In fact, take away the video-game gimmick, and this sounds like just any other teen movie. I might be more interested were this animated. Some of the 'edginess' of the comic book comes from the pseudo-realism of the situations juxtaposed with the complete lack of realism of the art. Michael Cera is the everyteen of the moment. I'm going to see this, but I'm not getting my hopes up--new or otherwise.

    As for my favorite movie when I was 16

    by D.Vader

    It was JAWS. And I'm not meaning to insult everyone. I just find it funny that a website full of movie geeks and most are admitting they had shit taste when they were 16. I've thought I always had good taste in movies, as subjective a thought as that might be.

    When I was 16

    by originalmemflix

    I thought Benny and Joon spoke to my inner angst. I thought Madonna's Body of Evidence was actually sexy. I thought Cliffhanger was better than Die Hard. Ghost in the Machine was actually scary. And I thought Hearts and Souls was affectual. But I did appreciate some amazing shit too in 93 - Groundhog Day, Dazed and Confused, and In the Line of Fire.

    ID4 sucked balls then and still sucks balls now. I saw it in the theater (because my girlfriend at the time wanted to). Between what they stole from "V" and what they stole from War of the Worlds, and what they stole from every bad action film made to that point in history, that was a gi-normous piece of shit. Maybe if you were in high school at the time. I was in grad school.

    "It was one of the most unexpected and completely satisfactory films I've seen in a while. EVEN AT ITS WORST, PILGRIM is filled with cinematic artistry and is brilliantly executed."<pr><pr> I don't think the reviewer's age has much to do with it. If you wait eleven hours on line, the Experience transcends the movie itself, and enduring the boredom of the wait has the side-effect of making ANY entertainment you recieve as your reward seem spectacular. But the reviewer does seem to be aware that flaws exist. But what were the "worst" parts, I wonder?

I'm not being snide. Just friendly advice. Oh--while I'm at it--THE ENEMY is a boring pseudonym imo. Choose a new one. <BR><BR>Otherwise, keep up the good work.

    You're right, Vader, there are lots of other reasons

    by WickedJacob

    to trash this review. It's boring to read. It provides very little information beyond what the ads already tell us. It's loaded with cliches. It's high on hyperbolic praise but very low on specific reasons for that praise. Basically, it lacks either new information or new perspective. Those are the main goals behind any review. Therefore it fails.

    Favorite films at 16...

    by ClayG

    My fave films at 16 were a mix of highbrow and lowbrow, and many have survived on the list to this day. Favorite film, then and now..The Rocky Horror Picture Show..I still say those who ridicule it don't know the difference between a bad film and a satire on them. Also loved Blade Runner (which I saw in the theater), The Thing, Metropolis (introduced to me by Forry Ackerman's Famous Monsters), The Godfather, Gone with the Wind...Fast Times at Ridgemont High...Labyrinth...the original Star Wars trilogy minus Jedi.. and the list goes on. I was always a reader, and never much for dumb comedies, then or now. So maybe the tastes were a little developed.

I'm having a hard time thinking of a movie I liked a lot back then that now I'm not so into but also know isn't great to begin with. <p> I think I'd have to marinate on that for awhile and say ID4 for now. Wasn't close to being a favorite but I enjoyed it a lot.

    I'm sure I would have loved Scott Pilgrim if I was 16...

    by Turd_Has_Risen_From_The_Grave

    Actually, I wouldn't...When I was 16, I was enjoying Commando and Robocop and all that good stuff, not this whiny hipster garbage that seems to have infected the youth of today and its spoiled culture. The Expendables will trounce Scott Pilgrim, which will bomb hard and hopefully teach AICN a lesson about their readership - that we will not be force-fed whatever nonsense we, as supposed 'geeks', are required to 'like'.<p>Also, this Enemy fellow...if he really is Merrick's son, then Merrick should be ashamed that the kid can write far better than he can, at least in prose, if not in substance, though he certainly seems to have acquired his old man's tiresome snarky attitude (which is laughable when you claim that you wanted to walk out of TPM at 5 years old). No, I'm not convinced - this is merely Merrick writing in character, much like Moriarty used to write reviews as 'Neil Cumpston', professing naivete when folks outed him.

    Maybe its just the crochety old man in me, but I really do feel this generation is spoiled and apathetic beyond even that - too many distractions, too much useless technology (ipods, ipads, games consoles, twitter social networking, etc.), disposable junk culture (reality shows, endless cinematic reboots). There's no attention span, considered opinion or just plain ol' damn passion anymore. The internet has ruined these kids - in my day you absorbed movies and art slowly, and it truly meant something. You could only discuss it with a small group of people - usually face to face. The online world has contributed to this - its all glib throwaway nonsense. Therefore, I can see why The Enemy and his ilk would go ga-ga for shallow nonsense like Scott Pilgrim - it's the perfect film for their throwaway generation.

Same thing happened with Kick-Ass. When that movie was constantly being advertised and hyped up, I got so sick of hearing about it that I couldn't be arsed to see the fucking thing.<p> Hollywood, if you want my dollars, keep producing original modern classics like Inception, instead of churning out crap because they're "geeky movies."<p> Hollywood: "Hey everybody we've got a 12 year old girl called 'Hit Girl' who says cunt a lot and kicks some ass! Plus, we've got a teenage geeky superhero who calls himself 'Kick-Ass' which is the same name as the movie! Plus we got that McLovin' guy too! Isn't that awesome???

I know the difference between a good movie and an enjoyable movie and I do not confuse the two. All that was just to say I liked ID4....lol As far as this review, I think a lot of people need to get off their high horse with discrediting a review due to the reviewers age. I've never read Scott Pilgrim and have mixed feelings about the previews.

    by Le Vicious Fishus

    But I do know one thing:<BR><BR>Michael Cera is so fucking ugly that I have a tough time looking at him let alone believing that attractive young girls/women would give him the time of day in any form of reality. Cera looks like a terribly homely, middle-aged, cross dressing lesbian trying to pass as a hip, teenage dude. I can only guess that the gorgeous Mary Winstead must've had a hard time filming make out/sex scenes with that hideous mug (which only a Jonah Hill could make look decent in relief).<BR><BR>Proviso: once girls/women mature, most grow out of their revulsion towards horribly ugly males as long as they have something else (e.g., brains; financial stability) to offer. <BR><BR>OTOH, we men--straight or gay--rarely grow out of our juvenile aversion to ugly folk.<BR><BR>And before you guys slam me for implying that I'm good looking myself, think again. I grew up into an awkward, rather unattractive teen and young adult. I look much better now and never hit Cera depths of hideousness, but--as a formerly ugly kid--I know that even many (even most) ugly boys/men have an aversion to ugly people in general. Hell, the guys I've known who have been pickiest about female looks have often been the ugliest.<BR><BR>Digression complete.

    by spaceherpe

    Geez, when I was 16 my favorite film's was A Clockwork Orange, well anything by Kubrick actually, Schindler's List, The Wicker Man, Apocalypse Now, and The Wild Bunch. Those are still on my top film list plus others of course. Don't tell me a teenager can't have a decent critical response to films. I do have to say kid, 5 when you saw that crap, man you do make me feel old.

    I agree, JMV

    by Le Vicious Fishus

    I call shenanigans about the 5 year old's alleged TPM "walk-out" request. If true, it's because most 5 year olds have the attention span of an ant. Who knows? Maybe he had to potty or maybe he just wanted his daddy to pay attention to him.<BR><BR>Again, this review is much better than I could've done at Merrick Jr's age, but it's hard to swallow that part of the review.

    Most people are barely cognizant at five years old

    by Turd_Has_Risen_From_The_Grave

    Some sugar filled candy is enough to content them, while they chatter excitedly throughout Star Wars and get their fathers to help read the subtitles for them. But no, The Enemy apparently was aware that TPM was an event decades in the anticipation, and actually camped out overnight, only to be disgusted at Lucas' leaden dialogue and the finer nuances of taxing trade routes. The kid must be a prodigy...

    When I was 3, I demanded to be taken home

    by Turd_Has_Risen_From_The_Grave

    from a screening of Barry Lyndon. I declared to my paternal guardians that Kubrick had sold out and that this represented a marked decline in the quality of his output, and also that his work was a mere bastardizaion of the original Thackeray novel (which I had read whilst still in the womb, along with the collected works of Tolstoy and Jmaes Joyce). To my pre-school eyes, the mis-en-scene was also a little lazy....

    Does it mean that I too am getting told, or does it seem ridiculous that we are getting movie reviews of a person who was 5 years old when Phantom Menance came out?

    1975 Le_Vicious

    by leo54304

    Monty Python Holy Grail was incredible in that it wasn't an american style movie. There wasn't the predictable pattern in mainstream movies. At first I was confused trying to make sense of it but I was laughing so hard, I stopped trying. Deathrace 2000? Drive in theatre and the perfect type of movie for that venue. Killing people for points-whoa. Stallone (unknown then) as an over the top 30s gangster style driver. Lots of 70s style explosions and violence. Rollerball? combining roller derby and spiked gloves. I thought football was vicious. ou know the 70s had a lot of fads but the movies really were original. The decay theme of society and the human spirit in movies such as warriors, death wish and other vigilante movies, straw dogs, network even cuckcoo nest all touched the theme of breaking of the human spirit. Another reason those movies hold good memories for me is seeing them in old theatres. Yeah they were dirty, hot and old but they had an ambience you don't get in todays sanitized version. Last, the 70s movies were gritty and not afraid to take chances on subject matter (Dog day afternoon, All the presidents men) unlike majority of todays play-it-safe movies where authority is not to be challenged or questioned.

    He gave a well written and thought review. If you didn't know he was 16 would be ripping what he wrote? By that I mean, do you think gave a credible critque of the movie? I think he did and feel that as he gets more experienced, we'll start paying attention to what he writes and not his age.

    by leo54304

    Ron Howard I think made it and had decent budget for its time and subject. Movies of that genre included: Krull, Jim Hensen Dark Crystal, Tom Cruise in Legend and the king of them all:EXCALIBUR!! Blew my mind with 2 rapes, nudity, real looking knights in combat, great cast and visuals. 2 rapes were at start of movie with Arthurs father and then I consider Arthur to be raped by his sister Morgana (played by a young Helen Mirren). If you go to IMDBB and look up the movie they have the original trailers for it.

Yes, not all 16 year olds have horrible taste, but most do. It is 16 year old boys that make movies like Transformers 2 monster hits.

    <p>to Enemy's. There is one crucial difference. I believe it's not a great assumption to say that YOUR parents aren't movie reviewers who spend most of their days watching movies. With his father being Merrick, I'm sure he sat through almost as many movies by the time he turned 16 that many of you have by the time you hit your 30's.</p> <p>The kid's got credentials and one thing that many of the other reviewers on this site DON'T have. He can actually form cohesive sentences!</p> <p>I believe he wanted to walk out of TPM when he said. The politics angle of the movie was boring as fuck. And I also believe that Scott Pilgrim, while not being on EVERYBODY'S "MUST SEE" list, looks like a great film that I'm looking forward to myself. (However, part of that is because it takes place here in Toronto AS Toronto and not as the backdrop to some US city.)</p> <p>In any case, another good review TE.

    A 5 year old walking out on a movie?

    by rogueleader66

    Bullshit, sorry don't buy it for a minute. 5 year old kids don't walk out on movies, it just doesn't happen. I have kids, I know. TPM is a kids dream, no scene lasts more than a few minutes, the "boring " stuff is never drawn out. But I am supposed to believe that a 5 year old wanted to walk out on it.....yeeeeahhhhh.

    What's with the generational hate?

    by NeverTalksBack

    Ok ok the kid is 16, does that really make his review null and void? I mean if he's Merrick's son than even at 5 years old he probably had a better idea of movies and structure and what not than the average 5 year old. BTW everyone saying that they didn't realize how terrible TPM was upon 1st viewing i call shenannigans on! I didn't admit how terrible I thought it was for a while, but I didn't have much positive to say when I walked out. So he could've, as a discerning lil 5 year old geek said, No man, this isn't for me, what the hell's a trade embargo? Also why do we have to lump a whole generation together? Not every 16 year old is a lame emo kid, a lot of'em, but not all. And finally, I thought the review was very well written and I am actually looking forward to this. Then again I actually like Michael Cera. And Kick Ass and any number of people & films that the heralded talkbackers at AICN say suck. Guess I'm not cool enough... who cares?! :p Oh yeah, I was 5 years old when ESB came out ;)

    Merrick and his wife are movie reviewers?<BR><BR>Do tell...<BR><BR>Fact: Merrick despises felines and fantasizes about killing and torturing them much like your common, run-of-the-mill redneck.<BR><BR>Fact: Merrick is a great believer in the supernatural like your common, run-of-the-mill teenage high school kid.<BR><BR>Fact: Merrick's work on AICN usually consists of cut and paste jobs regarding typically stale movie "news." They clock in at very few words per article. <BR><BR>How many actual movie reviews have you read by him and was he writing them professionally in '99? <BR><BR>But I'll give Merrick this: the couple of times I've read a REAL substantive article penned by him (like his ESB retrospective not long ago), I've been impressed by his writing ability. He should do it more often, even if I do think he's a superstitious, cat-killing redneck piece of shit. He's a good writer, and that's what counts.<BR><BR>And--to be fair--I do believe it's possible Merrick jr wanted out of TPM during the boring shit, but you and I both know the Enemy included that bit for one reason: so that 30-40 something fan boys like many of us here would feel a common indignation and sense of SW geek-betrayal at the oft perceived travesty and disappointment of the SW prequels. Sure, the kid might of been bored at times, but was he seething with fan boy wrath at Lucas at the tender age of 5? No.<BR><BR>It was a disingenuous move.<BR><BR>All that stated--I like the kid and think he's a pretty good writer. May be really something one day when he's older.

All these people in the theater laughed because it was kinda cold. I blame my faulty memory on the coronal mass ejection that hit Earth today.

    C'mon guys, inception was trash. Boring, boring boooooorwing Trash. <p>hey harry, you hated it right? don't put down your lack of interest and falling asleep to being anything other than BORED <p>And don't tell me it was 'intellectual' -- dreams within dreams within dreams within dreams, and considering the 'it was ALL a dream' in another fucking dream concept. this is what you fuckers are screaming for in modern film?? <p> at best, this film was a total missfire and you all know it. it has no rewatch value except to scrutinize the terrible direction, the horrible acting and the over trying to be a 'classic' <p>Ok, so you think you still like it...... lets hear why this film is so good? lets hear what makes this film a star above all the rest of the films it derived itself from. <p>I feel bad for hating watchmen so much now, at least that film looked good and had some killer performances. Inception was just a big wank <p>Nolan exposes himself for the poor marksman he is. <p>where's the inception talkback - i really need to let loose on it's scenes and outragous premise. and it's sheer neglect for people who actually DO THINK and not the ones who toke and then pose the question "wow, like, what if you could fall asleep in your dream and have another dream..... wooooooah"

    Nope, not even close...although actually trying to hit on why the loathing towards this project started early isn't your point, of course. You're just an easy sell, and hoping that if you belittle all the other folk who aren't, you'll feel better about being such a blatant target consumer.<p> Which is why all the eye-rolling and groaning. Both movies (and their related comics...but especially PILGRIM) reek of a desperate, pre-packaged "coolness" designed to appeal to the narcissistic youth market, who fancy themselves some sort of "interesting" outcast, even as they spend every extra dollar they have on trying to conform to what all their equally "interesting" outcast friends are doing.<p> You feel flattered by this movie's pandering, and are thus chomping at the bit to surrender your money to it. And upset at those of us who are immune to its wiles...we "social climbing insects", whatever the fuck that's supposed to mean. I suppose that refers to people who don't shop at Hot Topic for all their mavericky, outcast, "unique and special" needs...

    by shutupfanboy

    Still my personal favorite out of the bunch even though Empire is the best one followed by Sith. I really dug Sith since its basically what I thought would happen anyway. As for this review, I think opening up by saying you hated Phantom Menance in order to get some sorta nerd creed is weak. Also, any movie that has Cera as a bad ass is doomed to fail. Should have got the guy from Zombieland at least, he had some good action moments as opposed to Cera who was in an overrated TV show and in his biggest film, SuperBad, he was a closet homo. Nothing about this film interests me unless we actually see Roma bang the bi-furious chick straight up ass to ass. Plus, as offensive as Jar Jar was in Episode I, the gay roommate in this film looks worse.

    a problem with his movie

    by Potatino

    I think is that no non geeky type person is even vaguely interesting in this movie. Well none I know anyway. oh and the trailer just makes it look lame and try hard. I'm even having trouble getting interested in it myself. Oh and having a kid review it makes me think eh its just a kids movie.. I'm gonna feel like a creepy old man if i watch this.. sooo no sale. Oh and I was 5 before the 80s started ...yeah! I'm old.

    What The Enemy has taught us...

    by Lemure_v2

    With his boldly naive showing of age, he has prompted many other readers to reveal same. Looks like the average age on here is mid 30's to 40...none of whom want to see Scott Pilgrim but all of whom are bitching about it. And I thought whiny little fanboys grew out of that. Makes me glad I didn't catch SW till the special editions or I might have become one too.

    when i read the whole "wanted to walk out of phentom menace" i also stopped reading, that kid needs a lesson in humility.

    Very interesting article. Also very hilarious considering websites like AICN built their reputation on fear that they would expose a studio's secrets (ie Scott Pilgrim screening), consequently receiving perks and such from studios themselves so the websites would shut up and play nice.<p> Besides, I'd hardly call this blackmail. Its not like the studio lost anything or would have lost anything substantial here. "Ohs noes! Teh website wil1 expoze Scott Pilgrem screeneng! Must give ticket too him!" So people find out there's an advanced screening. So what? That's hardly a nuclear bomb in the movie industry.<p> If this were truly blackmail, then that's for Universal to deal with and none of Harry's or Drew's business.

    What would have been awesome is if Universal had done the following<p> "(reprint of Billingtons letter). We at Universal consider ourselves and the movie press to be professionals. However when some journalists try to do things that are clearly illegal, not fair to real fans, or blatantly childish, we will not participate. We did not want to ruin the surprise screening by cheating a fan out of a spot or opening ourselves to more demands, nor have the surprise ruined by Mr. Billington. Thus, todays surprise screening of Scott Pilgrim for everyone in Hall H has been cancelled because of Mr. Billingtons threat to ruin what we saw as a really great surprise. Apparently he did not agree. The screening will be rescheduled. Thank you." <p>I would have laughed as the rage of a million nerds descended upon Billington.

    by Zakari Paolon

    Hey, I'm 35, far from a teenager, and I saw this at the fantasia film festival in Montreal, surrounded with people from all ages, mine, older and younger. The crowd went insane for the movie. Insane. This movie will obviously please a lot of teenagers, but really it's aimed at that generation that grew up with videogames, that played Zelda and Mario when we were kids, and went to arcades to play Street Fighter. Before the big consoles were around. Edgar wright is around my age, so is the series creator Bryan Lee O'Malley (admittedly he's a bit younger then me, around 31 I think). I'm fairly certain this movie will speak to anyone around those ages. I hope so anyways, it's a great flick. Here is my review, if anyone's interested: http://robot-things.livejournal.com/4605.html

    I realize that I’m adding this long after everyone is now done with the subject, but when I was his age (back in the mid-80’s) I was into a wide range of movies, not just the stuff you’d expect. Along with the Star Wars Trilogy, Jaws, Alien and the rest of the usual teen movie suspects, some of my favorites were Herzog’s Fitzcarraldo and Auguirre The Wrath of God (hence the moniker) and Schlondorff’s The Tin Drum.

    without his hand. But you're right conspiracy on an important point, that outside fans of the comic no one has a clue who Scott Pilgrim is. I went to Kick Ass not because I knew of the comic but because the ads showed some girl kicking ass with Joan Jett song blaring in the background. And I went opening weekend to help movie open with $20 million. I'm not seeing this movie and a lot of the kick ass crowd won't either I bet. Think it'll take in $12 million tops.

Kate Winslet was someone a female could relate to and want to be while a purple haired geeky girl, well I'm no female over 16 fantasies herself as. The movie Titanic itself about doomed love on an epic scale with first rate production scale and Scott Pilgrim is about some battle of the bands. The music of Titanic vs garage rock band, nuff said.

    Scott Pilgrim vs The World gets best movie review ever by AICN!

    I've been thinking Cera was doing some free publicity

    on his own behalf. That WOULD be humorous,<P> and slightly retarded. But humorous nonethelass.

    I saw a screening of Scott Pilgrim last week...

    by Pteramandadactyl

    And it was a really fun movie. It's full of little geek references: At one part when Scott's dreaming, the "fountain" music from Zelda played. I remember thinking if it shows Ramona as a fairy from Zelda, it wins at everything, but alas, it did not. I loved the vegan police as well. That said, it was a shallow movie and could use character depth and development (and possibly a stronger lead). Definitely worth watching though. I give it an 8.5/10.

    And for the people that like bitching about everything....

    by Pteramandadactyl

    The "win at everything" line in my review was an exaggeration and was not meant to be an accurate reflection on the movie or scene itself. I've read AICN for a while now (although this is my first time posting), and I know how serious talkbackers take every little phrase.

    Age may or may not play a part in this

    by shutupfanboy

    It might have something to do with this new abortion of a generation that wants to play Jackass on YouTube while watching quick edit movies with bright shinny things around due to their ADD. Yet, I just think the casting is the wrong. Cera doesn't have that "It" factor to be an action hero or a hero on any level. He is better off being the gay roommate, which really did we need that to be advertised in the commercials. The girl playing Romana is cute in the girl next door kinda way, but not in the fight off the world way and I like the girl next door type, loved Willow from Buffy. The other problem I have with Romana is that she seems like a cocktease. Double standard, I know, but I am not sure I knew anyone in their early 20s that had seven exes. One Night stands sure, but seven somewhat serious relationships, I don't know she seems like a girl that will just dump Scott at the end of all of this anyway. One of those bitches, you do a lot of things for to the point where it ruins your relationship with other people then out of the blue, she dumps for no reason other then she is bored. I can just tell by the preview that I am going to hate both leads and the only person I am going to care about this the female drummer that will get fucked in the end.

    I was 5, but I didn't see ESB in the theatre.

    by Royston Lodge

    However, I did see ROTJ in the theatre when I was 8.<p> That might be why I'm one of the few people on Earth that doesn't hate Ewoks. I saw ROTJ before I saw ANH or ESB.

    RPLocke: The ending to The Black Hole never freaked me out.

    by Royston Lodge

    I just thought the ending was cool.<p> Maybe it's cuz I was raised in one of those weird relatively liberal-minded churchgoing families, so the idea of Hell in a sci-fi movie didn't seem that out of place.<p> Then again, I'm from Soviet Canuckistan, where David Cronenberg is a national treasure. Maybe we're just different...

    SCOTT PILGRIM VS THE NON-EXISTING INCEPTION REVIEW

    by AsimovLives

  • Aug. 6, 2010, 2:58 p.m. CST

    Scott Pilgrim is definitely a movie for boys.

    by Royston Lodge

    It's a post-teen male fantasy is ever I saw one.<p> The main character heroically defeats challengers who are objectively superior to him in nearly every way, thereby winning the girl even though she can clearly do better, just because he's a "nice guy"?<p> That sounds EXACTLY like the sort of retarded fantasies I had when I was still a virgin.<p> Luckily, I finally saved up enough money for a hooker a few months ago, so I'm a man now.<p> I'm not dissing Scott Pilgrim. I'm totally into this shit. But I acknowledge that it will likely appeal in no way to the average female human being.<p> Pilgrim's a whiny little bitch (like me!). Most girls don't dig whiny little bitches (like me!).

    THe ending of THE BLACK HOLE never scared me too because it's so out there and demented that it caused me suprise and disbelief at what I was i watching. I just couldn't believe it, so crazy and out of left field that was. But the thign that suprised me the most about THE DARK HOLE is that how dark the movie is, and not just about the cinematography. I can't believe that Disney, of all studios, made that movie. That in about the same timeframe Disney released THE BLACK HOLE, DRAGONSLAYER and TRON, those movies must represent the most daring moment in the whole history of Disney, when, in a rare moment intheir history, they actually dare take chances.

    Oh, girls can dig whiny litle buitches like you... as a friend. They always like the type as friend. "Let's us just be friends", "I like you as a friend","you are my best friend","i don't want a lover, i just want a friend", "you are like a brother to me", blablabla... bitches!
