Pretty much the best movie ever in a very well made case with excellent picture and sound. Show it off to your lady dudes.

The movie has no real parallels. It is Napoleon Dynamite quirky, and slightly reminiscent of 60's acid films (which may be the best way to watch this movie.) Scott Pilgrim is in a band with Stephen Stills and a guy name Young Neil waiting in the wings. He is currently dating a 17 year old Chinese school girl who wears Catholic school uniforms. Her name is Knives. They play video games together. Scott has a dream about a girl, then meets her in real life. They start to date and now he finds out if they are to continue dating he must fight (literally) her 7 ex-boyfriends. These fights take on the characteristics of video game battles complete with Batman like "Zonk" words, special effects, and magical weapons. The humor is at times laugh out loud funny. The dialogue is extremely clever and witty. Scott also lives with (shares a bed with) a gay roommate (Wallace), although Scott is not gay. Wallace has the ability to immediately text message Scott's sister whenever something happens in Scott's life. He can even do it passed out drunk. If you liked this film you might also enjoy "Kick-Ass" which also boasts quirky humor and special fight effects.

No nudity. No foul language. Adult situations. WARNING: This film is not for everyone. You will either love it or turn it off after 20 minutes. Instant cult classic.

This is my go-to movie when I feel sad. It's just perfectly executed and one of the best graphic novel adaptions out there. One of the funniest movies for sure... Edgar Wright, I tip my hat to you sir.

People often read novels or comics before embarking onto their cinematic adaptations. And how often have I heard about "this part was missing" or "they screwed the whole character", etc.

The trick, my friends, is simple: should you wish to enjoy both, you would be better to watch the film first. THEN read the source material. Sure, sometimes people delve into it before it even becomes a film, but then it kinda defeats the purpose of my post :/ where to begin, then...

Just take your time. As much as possible, try and do it at least once: watch the movie and read its novel or graphic novel afterwards.

This is an example I'm happy to have done this because there are quite a load of changes and deletion that had to be done to condense 6 massive Scott Pilgrim volumes in one 2-hour long movie.

Does it hurt the result? Well, not really. From my experience, it takes a very gifted director and an even wittier writer to avoid such trappings, and luckily, Edgar Wright has everything in Aces here. Comedic timing, surrealistic moments, the gold was already there when Bryan Lee O'Maley crafted his ingenious graphic novel, but Edgar, with such limited screen time, managed to make the trip worthwhile. Fast paced, fun, funny, never dull, filled with colorful characters, quirky and witty dialogues galore... the list goes on. It is easily one of the best most satisfying experiences I had in a long time and I hesitate not one minute to recommend it to anyone and everyone who's curious about watching this.

Then, read the source material ^_^

As far as special features go, there's plenty to end your appetite. Hours upon hours of bonus truly give you the experience of filming it, writing it, meeting with the comic's creator, deleted scenes, outtakes, interviews, featurettes about the music, etc... Edgar Wright's movies never disappointed me in terms of features... and this is no exception.

Scott Pilgrim is just about one of Wright's absolute BEST (toe-to-toe with Hot Fuzz so far). Please watch it :D

Very nice movie, I had already seen it but it was so cheep that I bought it just to try amazon 2-days shipping. Beautiful metal case quality with cool graphic. Not much else to say of it. (Please take in note that I never bought any other metal case film or video game so I can't compare)

1 thing bad is the sticker of the price is directly on the box and difficult to remove in a clean way. I recommend olive oil or lighter's fuel.

What a ridiculously under appreciate film. I understand this is made for a certain generation and does not follow a standard movie format, but this is a wonderful adventure that has something for everyone. This action fighting adventure love story starts off in a mildly comic like world and by the end turns into a full fledged action packed comic book reality. Its amazing and sincere, but enough people did not give it a chance. This is deff worth a watch especially if you liked the comic books. This is witty, funny, and a different direction which can be a nice change of pace. Great garage band sounding soundtrack to the movie as well mixed with great indie rock music; which I don't even listen too, but can appreciate the world this movie created!

Give it a shot!

If you're from Toronto this is a must buy. Michael Cera plays an amazingly lame super hero.
Movies good, extra features are good, comes with concept art, deleted scenes worth watching
and steller movie stills. This movie will give you nerd chills, it will make you laugh, cry, scream well not scream
but you defeninetly will be in awe at what a good performance and quality CGI movie can bring. This movie has sound effects that will tantalize you. Look how much I'm writing about how good this movie is! MORE WORDS!!!

In lesbians with this movie, it's epic. A close friend of mine raved about this movie. I really wish I had seen it sooner. It was on tv not too long ago and I had my amazon order placed before it was over. Thanks for having it in stock and delivered quickly!!!
