When Mr 3CB told me the premise for this movie, I thought hmm … okay … so what can be so cool about a movie where you already know the ending? I mean, it’s Scott Pilgrim Vs The World. If The World had won, there wouldn’t be a movie, right?
But my Mr loved the movie, and I mostly trust his opinion. The movie starts with some ol’ school sound effects from Super Mario or something, and that really caught my attention. And then:
Not so long ago, in the mysterious land of Toronto, Canada, Scott Pilgrim was dating a High Schooler.
The little voice outside my head tapped Mr 3CB and said ‘Oh, I am so going to like this movie.” There were comic book captions with descriptions of the characters. They transitioned the scenes too. Interesting.
But about 5 minutes into the movie, the band plays. Their name is Sex Bomb Omb, and they were a lot better than I expected. That’s when I officially decided I like the movie.
Wait. I lie. I decided I liked the movie when I read the captions ‘Knives Chau – 17 years old’ and ‘Young Neil – 20 years old – lives here.’
The story is basically this. Scott meets the girl of his dreams, but in order to win her over, he has to defeat her seven evil exes. Also involved are Goth girls, ninjas, vegans, purple hair, and some really good bass.
It’s pretty safe to say I liked this movie. It had some cool effects, and throwbacks to old 8 bit videogames. Plus the geek guy kicks ass, which is a nice surprise. Very anti-cliché. Did I mention purple hair?
I like this film because it’s kind of silly, and kind of romantic, and kind of awesome. I question the leading boy’s taste, but it’s his lovelife, so yeah. Personally, I’d go with Knives, or Kim. Natalie and Ramona are kind of … you know … bad.
My favourite lines in the movie are:
Scott: amazon.ca … what’s the website for that?
Wallace: … amazon.ca …?!
My second favourite is by Scott’s sister, I forget her name.
You have to watch the film to understand. Wallace is my personal favourite by the way. Kim is a close second.
Others beautiful lines include:
Did you know Pacman was originally called Puckman? They changed the name because they were worried people would change the P to F … I’ll leave you alone forever now.
Hey Comeau, you know everyone, right? Do you know this one girl with hair like this?
We are Sex Bomb Omb and we’re here to make you think about death and get sad and stuff!
I think the coolest part in the movie comes about 30 minutes after it starts:
This song is called ‘I am so sad. I am so very, very sad.’ It goes a little something like this … ♫ *drums*guitars* ♫ sooooo sad! ♫ Thank you.
At that point, I *dead* went to funny-bone heaven, and came back to earth to *dead* again. You can forget about the buried part. That part of the movie will forever be etched in funny-bone history. I shall replay until the files gets scratched, then I’ll fix it with a patch and play it again. If you ever see me crying as I silently giggle myself to death, it will be because of that part of the movie.
I liked this movie so much that I watched it two days in a row, Totally worth it. I hear they made it an 8-bit videogame, and that there are comic books too. I’m not so much a comic book fan, but for this, I’ll make an exception. Plus, I finally have an excuse to break out the joysticks, so hurray for Scott Pilgrim!
That is all.
