Screen Shot 2015-10-17 at 3.02.07 PM

       Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is one of the most underrated films of this decade, proving what director Edgar Wright is capable when he’s not working with Frost and Pegg. Amassing a stellar cast including actors such as Brie Larson and Jason Schwartzman, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is endlessly quotable, hilarious, visually striking, and even a really compelling love story. Telling the tale of a guy having to defeat his girlfriend’s seven deadly exes in order to be with here, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is riveting from start to finish. Anchored by a really good performance from Cera, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is the best video game movie not based on a video game, implementing a unique, artistic style to it, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World manages to hearken back to those games we played as children while also using the concept in way that benefits the story, which also gives us some pretty awesome fight scenes. As to the humor aspect of it, we all know Wright’s a genius doing that, so the way he frames interactions between certain characters alongside great dialogue provides us with an endlessly re-watchable film.  In conclusion, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is a fantastic film more people should seek out, a film that I’ll rank at an 88 out of 100.
