Now that you've seen it, what did you think? It's here, it's finally here, after so many years of waiting! Edgar Wright's epicly epic adaptation of Bryan Lee O'Malley's beloved comic book series Scott Pilgrim vs the World finally hits in theaters today! Was it everything you were hoping for and/or so much more? How was Michael Cera as Scott Pilgrim and Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Ramona Flowers? Were there any other highlights from the cast? How was director Edgar Wright on his third feature following Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead? If you've seen it, leave a comment and let us know what you thought of Scott Pilgrim!
To fuel the fire, I just got back from seeing Scott Pilgrim vs the World for my second time and it's SO damn good. I think it's Edgar Wright's best movie (although all of them are pretty much on par with each other). Even though I was quickly growing tired of Michael Cera, he does a great job playing an awesome character. The real highlights, however, were Kieran Culkin as Wallace Wells and Alison Pill as Kim (I loved her!), plus I thought Brandon Routh and Jason Schwartzman did a great job, too. My only complaint was that it felt a little slow in the downtimes between fights. They were so frickin' awesome to watch that that's all I wanted to see. That said, visually I think Edgar has defined a new style that we'll see imitated for years to come.
What did you think of Scott Pilgrim? Awesome comic book movie or nails on a chalk board?
