Looking back now, there was no shot Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World would NOT be a cult classic. It is quirky, funny, cringy and unforgettable. But the part of this movie that is the best is how confident it is. I think all credit has to go to director Edgar Wright for having a vision in mind and sticking to it.

Watching it now, years after I saw it for the first time, Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World has a bit more depth to it than I ever remembered. It is by no means gonna make you rethink your entire life and existence, but it may make you do a quick, guilty, double-look in the mirror.

  • The best ex fight is by far the one involving Todd Ingram (Brandon Routh), AKA the vegan. It has the funniest lines from any of the fights, and the prologue to it being Brie Larson acting the hell out of Envy Adams.
  • Sound track in Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World slaps, and everyone who has seen it gets it.
  • I really disliked Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera) for the first hour of this movie. God, he was such a dick.
  • I never put it together that Ramona is played by Mary Elizabeth Winstead, the same actor who appears in Death Proof (2007) and 10 Cloverfield Lane (2016).
