 Change Crea for any other actor and this movie is an A .  Cera is the same guy in every film.  And not in the way people say Ryan Reynolds is the same.  His roles call for it.  Cera is a scrawny uncharasmatic kid.  And I totally didn't buy into him as Scott Pilgrim.  Everyone else maybe but I really just don't like this guy.

 Bryzarro, just out of curiousity, did you see the movie?

decepticons2 11/17/2010 9:13:30 PM

I have seen this movie. Unless the dvd adds something amazing I wouldn't recomend this to anyone. I just don't get it.

1)He is suppose to be some sort of ladies man? I don't mind Cera, i can't picture him getting one girl let alone multiples.

2)Are the superpower fights suppose to be some allegory or they really fighting. It makes no sense. Anytime its mentioned in any sort of way it is never answered

3)None of the chracters have any redeeming qualties. In fact they all seem so shallow they don't deserve for us to cheer for them.

Those are just three problems that stand out after seeing it in the theatre. I can't imagine paying for it a second time and watching it over and over. And there is so much fanboy love for this, I just don't see it. If its for the video game refrences are we that desperate to see are childhood imortalised in film we settle for this bad movie. Woohoo it looks like a 8bit fighting game. How about an honest review about the movie as a movie and not some geek culture refrence movie.

@theshanesaw 

Yes i did.  And really enjoyed the movie.  My only fault in the whole movie is the Character acting of Michael Cera.  He was okay in it but he was the same guy in Superbad, and Juno, and the brief scenes I saw in Year One.

I just wish for this movie there was a bit in the change of how he presented himself.  Like Decepticons said he's supposed to be able to have at least the 2 girls fawning over him.  Sorry not buying it.  I know some girls like a loveable loser but this guy aint it.  

That being said I would buy the DVD or ask someone to get it for me for XMas.  I just wish someone else was in the lead role.

I didn't care for the movie either.  I totally agree with Decepticons2.  I took several friends with me to see it thinking it would be good.  I apologized to them afterwards.

 Honestly, I hear all of your points, but I thought the movie raised the bar. Every part of it was dripping with real heartfelt metaphor, and the technical making of it (scene transitions, breaking the 4th wall, etc) were bold and well done.

It definitely has its flaws (really, why did those girls want him?) but I think there is a lot that the movie did to break conventions in a successful way. Though I agree it's not for everyone, for example: My girlfriend thought the Seinfeld laugh track was "funny," and a friend of mine thought it was "just a silly gimmick." When I saw it with a group of friends the first time I saw it as an interesting commentary on the fact that Scott's situation at the moment (like situation comedy) was troubling, I mean, he was CHEATING on both of them, and thought the banter between him and his room mate was funny, it was kind of cruel. 

The movie had me understanding the message behind it when Scott defeats the first boyfriend and he bursts into coins. Scott should be proud and it should have been a wake-up call for him, but instead he picks up the coins and says "This isn't even enough for the bus ride home." 

Thought it was brilliant, though I understand the criticisms. It's not for everyone, and some of it is flawed.

Well Knives is 17 and repressed...
and Romona only agreed to hang out with him to get him to sign for a package.

He's also apparently a decent muscian, which is like being a football player.

So the girls I understand..

in fact minus Cera's inability to deliver a line with out me wanting to smash a table over his head, I loved the movie.

I totally got this movie. It was so much fun and I had never read the comic.

I have recomended if to many people.

Cera... was fine in the role. I guess I havne't watched enough of his movies not to like him.

Can't wait to see the DVD extra's.

This movie has a veeeeeeeeeeeery specific audience, methinks. I was part of that audience. I saw it with three different sets of people of varying ages and tastes, and everyone had a different opinion.

I'm a sap so I loved the movie. I can see where it would wear on people though. I do think it was visually one of the best things to come out in a while.
