Scott Pilgrim, a lovelorn musician, is an appealing fusion of nerdy, cheeky and vulnerable. So, who better to play him than Michael Cera?

This is a discouragingly limp movie in which nothing is at stake.

With Scott Pilgrim, Wright leaps over the line from chattery cleverness to all-out self-consciousness.

Scott Pilgrim...

By corina92101
P.S. For those of you who haven't seen the movie and are already giving bad reviews...you need to really shut it cuz Scott Pilgrim vs. The World was one of the most amazing movies ever >.< I was lucky to be able to watch the movie at Comic Con and the first 2 seconds of the movie was amazing. The movie was made in comic book/video game format and that probably sounds lame to some, but Edgar Wright pulled it off and the movie was truly amazingly epic. Each actor played their roles so well. If you've seen other Edgar Wright movies you would see some *emphasize on some* resemblance to his other movies, in a good way. :) This is a must see in the cinemas movie....
