Scott Pilgrim or Bryan O’Malley and Edgar Wright genius team…

Standard

We talked a lot about this movie in these days on our radio show but it’s definitely for a reason…Scott Pilgrim versus the world is a fantastic epic movie. Indeed, it makes us smile and reminds us the old times when we where video games geeks (circa Pacman, Nintendo 8 Bit era ). Directed by Edgar Wright, the famous creator of Shaun of The Dead and Hot Fuzz, Scott Pilgrim relates the story of a guy who’s meeting the girl of his dreams but got to fight her evil exes to win her heart based on Bryan Lee O’Malley graphic novels. References to video games are obvious and it’s hard to get sleepy with all the action involved in the battle duels. Even the soundtrack is stronger than ever with the collaboration of the likes of Broken Social Scene, Beck, Metric and more. Music is really important as well in the movie as it’s portraying ”battle of the bands” where actors play the music for real (it’s not lip-synching). Michael Cera (Scott), Alison Pill (Kim) and Mark Webber (Stephen Stills) trained with Chris Murphy from Halifax band Sloan and the result was amazing. Scott Pilgrim versus the world is a ”must-see”.
