Scott Pilgrim VS the World

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo + Digital Copy)

Why we chose this movie: We have really been slacking on blogging, and well watching movies all together. We both wanted to see this and heard it was pretty good so we went for it.

Beeps:  I had heard from friends that if you've read the graphic novels, that you'll hate the movie, but if you haven't, then you will love the movie.  I did not read the graphic novels, but I also didn't love this movie.  I really liked the first hour or so, but then things started spiraling downward from there.  I felt that the first few fight scenes were pretty well done, there was plenty of movie between them.  However, as we approached the end of the film it felt very rushed.  The last few fight scenes were sort of just there, and really didn't seem like they put much effort into them.  All in all, I think that it's worthy of a viewing.  Especially if you're into video games, slacking, or chicks with different colored hair.  2 1/2 stars.

Apes: This movie was alright. It started off strong, but after the 2nd or 3rd evil ex it really lost a lot. The film sort of felt like an indie film trying to be big budget box-office, and I don't think it quite worked. The characters are poorly developed and quite frankly I don't give a damn about them! If you don't care about the characters then whats the point? *shrug* If some one really wanted me to watch this with them I would, but I'd be sure to have a craft project or my laptop out! I give it 2 1/2 stars... take it or leave it! 

Overall we give it 2 1/2 stars.

  3. I completely agree about the movie! I thought it was pretty slow and drawn out too. Had it's funny parts, but definitely slow.

  4. I went and saw it at the movies with one of my mates who has no interest in video games at all and about 15 minutes in all I could hear over the movie was his exclaim "what in the fuck is this!?".

    Haha.

  5. I kinda figured I wouldn't be missing much watching this movie. I admittedly refuse to watch it for the simple fact I don't want to even think about ex drama, lmao.

    I'm more than happy to add fuel to the fire of not seeing that movie :D

  10. i'm surprised you guys gave it 2.5 to be honest. i really enjoyed it (didn't read the graphic novel). it just seemed like a movie for people that love old school video games, but i agree some of the comedy was a rehash of what michael cera does in every movie he's in. Awkward teenager again, awesome! i still liked it, though. I do see your guys's points, nice review
