Scott Pilgrim vs. The World – Review(?)
What to say about this movie? It’s not for everyone, but it’s probably got a little of something in it for everyone.
- A strange movie. For sure!
- A good movie? I’m not sure.
- Seriously oddly compelling? Definitely!
- s it a movie? A comic book? A video game? Yes, it’s all three at the same time…
Scott’s got a new girlfriend, but to move along in the relationship, he must defeat her seven ex-boyfriends exes. Although I’m not sure why he must defeat them, they’re just after him. She seems aware of it, but overall she doesn’t seem like “she” needs him to complete the task. You need to just accept this point and move along with the plot.
But it’s filled with many interesting scenes; I’m not saying they all make sense, but they’re interesting and have some cool effects.
In some bizarro way it made me think of what we leave in the wake of our old relationships… What perspective do the others have? What perspective do they have years later? Do they think “Gary who?” or “Gary, sigh…”? Hopefully somewhere in the middle and without too much anger or regret…
