Scott Pilgrim vs. the World
#1
Thumbs Up 
Yesterday we wanted to watch a "different" movie - not the "usual" sci-fi, horror, zombie, action etc.
So, took my 1€ Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and rewatch it after a lot of months...

A strange (in a good way) film... comedy, videogame, music, comics, everything melted together in a final product that is fun to watch and never boring; if you haven't watched it yet, you'll be amazed - and don't forget to watch also deleted/extended scenes, it may lead you to think about an extended restoration project!

There was an extended cut released a couple of years back.

Thanks for the link; unfortunately, it seems a not so high quality fanedit...

I love this movie. Saw it in theaters and I'll never forget when that pixelated Universal logo came up with the 8-bit music. This is the movie I watch when I need a pick me up (along with Monty Python and The Holy Grail). I think I'll be meeting the author of Scott Pilgrim--Brian Lee O'Malley in September. Smile

What an absolutely fantastic movie that should have done better at the box office! Edgar Wright is without a doubt the best comic director of the last 30 years or so. The attention to detail is fantastic, with not a dull stretch. I must say, I found the ending great even though others prefer the alternate.

This is actually one of my favourites of all time.

You should! That being said, it's understandable why one could fall asleep in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. It's a pretty high energy movie with a lot happening at once and Edgar Wright's kinetic style pushed to its ultimate extreme. Amazingly, though, everything is coherent and never overwhelming.

Lots of action movies, even good ones, are like that for me. Speaking of good action movies, I think I'll check on the Mad Max Fury Road thread...

The biggest flaw of the Scott Pilgrim movie is they were in a hurry to get it out and didn't want to wait until the comic series ended.
As a result they had to make it up themselves and it's weaker than the real ending.

Although any extended edit needs to include Scott Pilgrim vs. the Animation from Adult Swim. It is actually a segment from the comic and not some randomly made up publicity short.

Seconded! It's faithful to the original material, for the most part, and they both carry a strong message.
