I really love this movie. I actually only watched it for the first time last year, when I rented it. I had avoided it for so long because I thought that it looked stupid. Many people recommended it to me, and I rented it, and greatly enjoyed it. Last week, I was very happy to buy it, so I watched it over two nights, split in half.
The film has some really awesome production values. The cinematography and the editing for the fight scenes are very good. I like how the video-game like graphics are shown on the screen throughout the film. The martial arts scenes are well-choreographed as well.
The film is also very well acted. Michael Cera and Mary Elizabeth Winstead do very well in their lead roles, making their characters feel realistic in a film that is very cartoonish (but in a good way) in nature. Jason Schwartzman, Chris Evans, and Brandon Routh are all funny in their roles as some of the evil exes. Brie Larson, Aubrey Plaza, and Anna Kendrick are also good in their supporting roles.
The writing of the film was very unique. It combined the best elements of three mediums: film, comic books, and video games, into an amazingly enjoyable movie. I was constantly laughing throughout the film at its humor, and t is consistently enjoyable.
So overall, "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" is a very enjoyable, must-see film for all film-lovers, comic book nerds, and video game lovers everywhere. You should definitely check it out.

I look at films as if through old red and blue 3D glasses— one lens is as art, one lens is as entertainment.
