COMMENTARYCAST: Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World (2010 Blu-Ray)

Posted: June 24, 2015 in CommentaryCast, Oni Press, Scott Pilgrim

For those keeping track, this is the fifth CommentaryCast and also the fifth one to reference THE Matthew Stacey, he of myth and legend. At this point, I fear the inside jokes and shorthand between myself and Mr. Baer threaten to overtake regular discourse and comic-movie-based trivia. But, I don’t fear it enough to stop. Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World is the very definition of “cult classic”. It received great reviews but piss-poor box office receipts. And like any good cult classic, it’s found a vocal and passionate fanbase on home video. Directed by genre god Edgar Wright, you  may never see a comic book movie that is directed quite so beautifully.

NOTES:
-Recorded in January 2015
-Scott Pilgrin was created by Bryan Lee O’Malley and was published by Oni Press.
-Lucas Lee is one of Chris Evans’ many, many CBM roles.
-The original comic was published in black and white, but the entire series has recently been colorized for new hardcover editions.
-This is Edgar Wright’s first foray into comic book movies. I’d say it turned out better than his second attempt.
