It was as funny, as innovative, as lovable, as heartfelt, and as humble as the books.
My favorite part of the books though, was that they were just really fun. I felt a smile on my face while I read it.
The movie version doesn't lose that.
Some characters are far gayer (weird, I expected to see a red line under that word), and some characters are far less.
Some lost face time and others gained, but I can't think of a single Book-to-Movie edit that was a bad call. (considering they had to cut about 75% of all character development/back stories)
It feels inappropriate to use the same old words and phrases to praise a movie that was slathered with completely new things I've never seen in a movie or script. I owe Edgar Wright and Brian Lee O'Malley an attempt though...
-Any one scene from this movie could be viral on YouTube on its own.
-My 'Love the Movie' to 'Hate the Wait til DVD' Ratio is equal at ' : '
-If there'd been a 15 ft tall facebook "Like" button at the end of the movie, I would've thrown my full weight against it.
-There were parts were I wanted to ignore the movie just to have something new to watch when I see it again in a few days.
-I'm dude-pregnant with the movie's baby.
This movie easily makes my Top 10.
If you haven't read the books, you'll only understand about 98% of the plot and 96% of the jokes.
I'll save a spolier-laden critique of the movie for at least a week or two after the movie.
What's important now is that you understand how hard this movie does all the undefinable things it does.
(How many reviews will have that in them? Over/Under: 249.5)

It was with very little fanfare that I went to see Scott Pilgrim vs. the World on opening night. The ads were never really appealing to me and I felt like Michael Cera was being typecast so I figured this movie would be a flop. Still, there was enough positive buzz that I agreed to come along when a friend wanted to go and I'm floored at how opposite of a reaction I had to this film. Not only is it probably the biggest surprises of my life as far as movies go (not plot-wise, just in my feelings about it), but it's hands down one of the most fun experiences I've ever had in a movie theater.
The plot of Scott Pilgrim is pretty much exactly what you'd expect from the trailers: Michael Cera is Scott Pilgrim, who has fallen in love with a very alluring girl who, as it so happens, has 7 evil exes who have banded together to ensure that no one dates her if they can't. You really have to go into the movie accepting that this is the plot because it's not anything deeper than that, and that's a big part of what I love about it. This is one of the few movies I've seen in a long while that understands exactly what it needs to do and really nails it. It focuses on a few things and blows them out of the park. So even though the romance story is never fully fleshed out, it's the first movie I've seen that has felt like a comic book and a video game have come to life, slept together, and produced a child on the big screen.
I don't know how true it is to the comic book, but that's irrelevant because it stands on its own as something really smart if you can appreciate the references and things it tries to parody.Read more ›
Scott, picking up a guitar: "I wrote a song about you."
(plays a tender, haunting song mostly repeating the name Ramona)
Ramona, after song ends: "That was nice, let me know when you've finished it."
Shot of Scott looking perplexed.
Ramona: "Back then I was bi-curious."
Female Evil-ex: "Now I'm BI-FURIOUS!"
I'm not going to get into the plot of the movie, which is mostly irrelevant anyway. This film is just an escapist roller coaster. Forget about anything making sense and enjoy the ride. It's a blast.
It's like a colorfully stylized musical, except instead of breaking into song when conflicts arise or emotions boil, they break out impossible kungfu moves, complete with colorful Batman-tv-era "kerplunks" and "pows" written onto the screen. I read a New York Times review from an unimpressed game critic who seemed to want it to mean something, or to better reflect the reality of contemporary video games. Maybe it doesn't do those things, but I don't think it needs to. My wife and I saw it and walked out enchanted and amused. (My only complaint is that I thought Scott Pilgrim and Knives Chow were in fact a far better match than he and the bright-haired Ramona Flowers. I just never saw the sparks between Michael Cera and Mary Elizabeth Winstead - so that in this unrealistic fantasy that was the one thing that really felt fake.) Hollywood will always be telling love stories - and I hope that every once in a while they get around to making them as inventive and funny as Edgar Wright managed to make this one.

I seriously doubt there will be a "Part 2". All six graphic novels were used in the adaptation of the screenplay and I haven't heard Bryan Lee O'Malley dsicussing the posssibility of more books. Besides, where would the story go? There is no need for a sequel. This film was just... Read More
