I love Edgar Wright.  Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz are two of my all time favorites.  So, maybe I am a little biased or maybe, just maybe Scott Pilgrim is one of the most freshly original, hilarious action-romantic-comedies I have seen in years. 

Everything about this film feels new.  The premise.  The tone.  The theme.  The action.   (I never read the graphic novels and was able to enjoy it without any preconceived ideas and what a fun ride!)

This is definitely a multiple view movie and very, very quotable! “BREAD MAKES YOU FAT?!”  LOL–There are dozens of memorable moments–but also there is a lot of heart and that is what makes it more than just funny…it makes it EPIC!  🙂

About nediunedited

Who is nediunedited? A lover of cinema since the age of seven! All kinds–all genres. Films (TV and Books, too) have shaped my life–they were my escape, my inspiration and even my first role models. I do not rate my films in the traditional sense (no stars, grades, etc.)–instead I give you my opinion and my take on it–I do not give traditional plot summaries either, because I want you to go in clear–ready for your own experience. There is nothing better than discovering a fine film, without any other influence. (Personally, when I want to really see something I practice media shut out–I refuse to watch too many trailers, viral promos, reviews, etc–I have been known to cover my eyes and ears in the theater during trailers–LALALALA!) That’s me–hope you come by and visit! I will definitely make the rounds and find some of you out there, too.
