Edgar Wright (of Shaun of the Dead, Spaced and Hot Fuzz fame) is a miracle man when it comes to shots and editing. But his best work (in this aspect) did not come until Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. The movie’s comedic approach is hit or miss (depending, honestly, on age), but the movie itself is a work of art.
Scott Pilgrim, 22, who is dating a high-schooler, meets Ramona Flowers, a New-Yorker in their Toronto suburb. He digs her, and she realizes that his awkwardness is something of an interest. When they connect, he realizes, the hard way, that he has to battle and defeat her 7 evil ex’s. Or else….
Best Aspects: Great acting, AMAZING filming (should be nominated for an Academy Award for editing and Cinematography), and a funny plot with great writing. Brilliant ending, as well.
Bottom Line: A. A great, funny movie.
