The only good thing about Scott Pilgrim (not the comics, which are brilliant, the film) is The Clash at Demonhead cover of “Black Sheep” because Brie Larson (please marry me) absolutely kills it. That and the entire soundtrack and Aubrey Plaza as Julie. Other than that… Yeah. I mean, nice try, but the comics did it all better, and didn’t age as poorly as the film did. It’s obvious that a lot of work went into making it, which is a shame, because that craft is used to serve a superficial story, with a superficial understanding of its source material.
Outside of the music aspect, there was nothing to add by adapting the comics into an easy-to-digest 2hrs movie that barely focuses on its characters, what Brian Lee O’Malley did best. Instead, the film decided to focus on the videogame-y aspect of the comics without the analysis of that presentation that goes with it in the comics, to appeal to a certain demographic that understood (and that’s partly because the film didn’t do a good job) that if you were a “nice” nerdy guy, you could get the girl, (never mind the whole “dating a high schooler” thing) also, kapow, and did you notice the Great Fairy Fountain music? Haha!
Except that’s superficial. It doesn’t tell us much about how shitty Scott Pilgrim is, as a person, to view things that way. It’s easy to just think, heh all these characters were kind of mean but look, that battle against the Katayanagi twins is just like in the video games! In the comics, these fights matter and are a vehicle for plot and character development, not just a pretext for whacky stylish action scenes, at least not only. The Katayanagi twins serve a narrative purpose other than just “they fight”, and their fighting at all is something the comics try to question
Style and presentation, which are central thematics in the comics, are left mostly unquestioned in the movie, which is a shame because Edgar Wright is far from stupid. Then again, how can you do that over two hours? So yeah, it’s not very good, especially in regards to the graphic novels.
The comics are great, and for the most part, they are still a good read today
The film is an awkward watch at best
The film bothers me so much. In the comics, Scott actually develops as a character, and acknowledges that he was acting like a twat. All of the other characters develop really well, too (aka knives moving on, ramona overcoming her past etc)
All of that development was left out the movie. I think thats shown best by the whole Negascott thing being boiled down from a fantastic narrative plotline to a cheap joke, and the girls just accepting that Scott cheated on them and he faces zero (0) consequences, and fact that the original ending was seventeen year old Knives taking Scott back
Im mad abt the scott pilgrim movie
pls appreciate my Scott rikkor
I’m too lazy to do an actual model for him so
not sure if I’m vibing with this greenb but whatever
Scott Pilgrim but every character is a worm on a string. that’s it. that’s the only difference. everything else stays the same.
Scott but he uses memes in the entirely wrong context
OK I HAVE SEVERAL DAYS WHERE NOTHING HAPPENS BUT I DECIDE TO SPEND *ONE DAY* ATTEMPTING TO SETUP FBT AND I GET 120 NOTES WHY ARE Y'ALL LIKE THIS
