Scott Pilgrim vs. the World
phry
Hey all,

Being a big fan of Edgar Wright (Spaced, Shaun of the Dead etc), I'm pretty excited about his next flick. It looks like a fun twist on young romance coupled with the logic of videogames as the hero must endure a series of 'boss battles' to defeat his love's exes to win her heart. Looks pretty mental but a lot of fun imo.

I've not read the comic but may have to give it a go too. Any one else looking forward to this one?

I've heard of Scott Pilgrim, but never read the series, and now there putting up a movie, I'll think about this when or if I may see it. Also, trendy use of Alpha/Zero 3's KO sound.

I don't know much about it, I have seen the movie. & I liked it, I love all the songs of that movie. Overall it was a nice one & worth watching. Smile
Some people claim that marriage interferes with romance. There's no doubt about it. Anytime you have a romance, your wife is bound to interfere.

i actually just saw this about 3 days ago. I think if you remember it's a comic it's pretty good because it has that comic feel to it. but i did think some of it fell slightly flat too. i havent read the comic but its obviously heavily inspired by video games.

i found some of the exs very funny especially the guy who got his powers because he was vegan.

No i watched the whole movie every night for a week I'm surprised it took me that long to get bored of it. Yes I'm kind of obsessive and a total nerd. Anyone played the game on XBLA?

I PLAYED THE DEMO ON PSN...
and liked it. I have an obsessive friend who watched the film, then got plushes, and comics, and the game... then proceeded to beat the game repeatedly. I told him to go play DD2 on the NES, as Pilgrim steals MUCH from that game, and rightly so Wink

I wasn't too keen on the size of the sprites if I were honest. A bit on the chunky side for me with a hint of SD about them. And, I'm not a fan of SD I'm afraid. Pocket Fighter is my limit. Seeing as the Double Dragon series (on the whole) is my fave beat em up series ever > Final Fight & SORage, I will definitely pick this up at some point... when it's cheapy cheap.

AS FOR THE MOVIE...
I absolutely adore it. Not only because it attempts to embody videogame elements and pay massive videogame homage to gaming eras passed, but because it is, in Lucas Lees own words "actually hilarious". The film connected with me 101% more than any film I had seen in many years, since the likes of Kiss Kiss Bang Bang & Iron Man, due to the dark, dry, sarcastic humour - as I'm similar to that myself in real life. Most of the film has me physically laughing out loud for the most part. I doubt I have time to list them, but the film REALLY sums up my sense of humour. Scott Pilgrim was one of those rare occasions where I watched the film and felt like, not only that the director 'gets it', but it was almost as though the films was made for me personally, as an individual, knowing all the kind of comments etc that I would find funny.

I'm currently obsessed with Lucas Lee as the stereotypically cool 90's action star <cue Lucas Lee's gravel> "The first click you hear is me hanging up. The second click is me pulling the trigger"... actual genius. Not forgetting Roxy Richters: "You're going to die obviously" and "Next time, I'll be deadly serious, next time".

I'd be here all day lamenting quotations to the genius of this film if I'm not careful Pfft

I must admit I was really disapointed, all my freinds said it was a film I must see knowing I'm an old school gamer but i think it fell short of the mark. There were some good moments in it but most of the time, meh.
I love all of Ed's other stuff tho.
Got a copy on Blue ray if anyone wants it, 3 LOL.

Have you tried the base comic? It even funnier and and has more classic gaming jokes.

Actually no I havnt but thats not a bad idea, i might relate to the comic more than the film. Will look out for it next time im looking at comics.
