Juan Flo Evra The Cocu’s Nesta - 13 January 2011 07:53 PM

I saw Scott Pilgrim & thought it was throughly disappointing too. It seemed as if it was made for people with the attention span of about 0.2 seconds & just seemed very ‘throwaway’.

That was one of the points I think.  Well, in that it reflects the characters, as opposed to it being done aimed at the viewer.  I guess it wasn’t everyone’s cup of tea.

Here’s Edgar Wright talking about….

I first heard of Scott Pilgrim in 2004 when Bryan Lee O’Malley’s recently released first volume was pressed into my hands. Given that my previous work has strived to mix up the mundane with the insane, I was hooked immediately. I loved Bryan’s use of manga and video-game iconography to depict the emotions of these young characters.

Adapting these books was a gift as they are not only funny, charming and relatable, but have increasingly crazy diversions into the fantastical. To be able to do romance, comedy, action and fantasy in the feature was an intriguing challenge.

The best way to describe the world of Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World is that it’s a normal world of a normal young man filtered through his overactive imagination. Bryan Lee O’Malley describes Scot as the hero of the movie in his own head. My goal is to make that very movie.

The emotions and the interactions throughout the film are infused with the mass media that this generation has grown up with; not just in music, film and animation, but in over 30 years of video games. Our characters’ life experience is completely governed by the ridiculous amount of time they’ve spent with their Nintendo consoles. For twentysomething characters in the film, the incidental music for Zelda is as resonant as nursery rhymes.

In the world of Scott Pilgrim, minor disagreements are resolved in mortal combat. Our hero is thrown into a world of pain when he dates the girl of his dreams. The mysterious Ramona Flowers has something of a hex on her where her seven evil exes challenge her new boyfriend to a series of duels to the death. Many people have jumped through many hoops to pursue someone unobtainable. Scott must literally fight for his new relationship if he wants it to survive.

The increasingly crazy events of the film are the result of wild exaggeration. When teens of twentysomethings describe the events of a night out they are usually blown out of all proportion. My take on the fights in the film is that they are hugely amplified versions of the events. Someone might gossip about the ‘huge fight’ that broke out the night before. And here we see the huge version of the fight.

The fight sequences in Scott Pilgrim almost play out like big production numbers. In our film, people break out into fights the same way they explode into a dance number in a musical. When emotion is too great to convey in mere words, characters in a musical will sing out. In Scott Pilgrim, they throw down.

In the absence of a snappy phrase that can fully emcompass the overload of eye and ear candy that comprises the actions, I will instead leave you with a promise: “You will believe Michael Cera can fly.”

The film is set in a world of first apartments, crappy bands, thrift stores and coffee shops that we all know and love. It covers young love, loud music and big emotions. We see the world through a cast of young people who have a lot to give and a lot to learn. Oh, and people totally explode into coins.

My favourite film is Chinatown, gets better with every viewing.

Film of 2010m was The social newtwork. The acting, the direction, the cinemotography were supberb.

Sid anyone see Werner Herzogs Bad Lieutenant? I loved it, but mainly because it was just so ridiclously stupid and unhinged that i laughed at most of it. Not sure that was the point?

Probably the best film script ever written.

My top 3 Films of the year

3. Four Lions - in my eyes an almost perfect black comedy, great performances all round especially Nigel Lindsay
2. Inception - tried to avoid the hype as much as possible, overhyped maybe but still an excellent film
1. Toy Story 3 - speaks for itself

I loved Scott Pilgrim, although there is a lot going on.

One film I watched over Christmas that I adored was An Education; truly wonderful.

The other film starring Peter Saarsgard that I watched was Knight & Day (not by choice, may I add - ‘family film time’). Possibly the worst film I’ve ever seen. And I’ve seen Summer Holiday.

Scott Pilgrim was definitely a film which divided peoples opinions, I however thought it was awe-some.

Another film which people may think is dire but I very much enjoyed was Tron Legacy, the visual styles alone deserve at least some credit, and Jeff Bridges is beyond great.

I couldn’t put a list in order for my favourite films of last years but it would definitely include:

Inception, Toy Story 3, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (unfortunately the trilogy goes downhill from there), Of Gods and Men, The Social Network, Down Terrace and Dogtooth, off the top of my head.

All in all a good year for film, but this year hasn’t started off badly at all. True Grit, Black Swan, The Fighter, The King’s Speech and 127 Hours are all fantastic. Seriously fantastic. Especially Black Swan and The King’s Speech.

Worst films of last year, guys? Mine would be Unstoppable and Dinner For Schmucks.

I’m really looking forward to Movie 43 this year (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1333125/). It’s a film consisting on tons of little comedy segments, just take a look at the ridiculously large cast list. Oh and Fincher’s take on The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.

For all-time great films, that would include The Shawshank Redemption and 2001: A Space Odyssey.

That film is truly shit, though, from a critic’s point of view. And Colin Farrell’s acting was comical. I liked it for the over the top dialogues, costumes, and bad acting - something that as an Indian, I am both accustomed to, and encourage. The funniest scenes were when Colin Farrell is giving a pre-battle speech, and the camera pans away, and when he’s standing on top of a mountain in Asia berating Craetorus, and says “Because you have fallen in love with the things that destroy men”.

It is very entertaining, though.

I did too, and I can tell you from my experience at Columbia, that is exactly how a lot of Ivy Leaguers are - overambitious to the extent of giving up their friends and social lives for success. But you can’t deny that the film was entertaining, and very topical, seeing how facebook has exploded in the last year or so.

I thought it was a film about a story that is less than half completed to be fair.  I tried reading the book to get it, that wasn’t very good either.

It was well shot, but no substance IMO

Forgot to add Winter’s Bone, Animal Kingdom, Catfish, Rabbit Hole and the truely outstanding Enter The Void, Un Prophete and The Secret In Their Eyes to my earlier list. All in all a hell of a list.

On The Social Network, it’s much more about Sorkin’s script than anything else. The acting was good and the story interesting of course. It’s the deep irony between a socially awkward and pretty unlikeable bloke creating the biggest and most popular social networking tool with revenge, drama, legal battles, personal battles all thrown in. But Sorkin made that film. The same, to a slightly lesser extent, goes with True Grit aswell. The acting is great (in particular the unknown 14-year-old lead) but the best aspect of the film is the Coen Brothers’ script.

That’s my two cents anyways.

I’m ecstatic that this thread was created, and dumbfounded as to how I never had the idea. Anyway, here are some favorites:

-Garden State
-Clerks
-This Is England
-City Of God
-The Big Lebowski
-In The Loop
-Full Metal Jacket
-True Romance
-Sexy Beast
-Snatch
-Lost In Translation
-Children Of Men
-Pulp Fiction
-Dead Man’s Shoes
-Do The Right Thing

Now, these aren’t necessarily the films that I believe to be the.best, although some of them fit that description. Instead, they’re films that I can watch anytime, that I’ve grown to love on a personal level just from multiple viewings or characters that really hit home- that sort of thing.

Any recommendations based on my taste would be lovely.

I’m ecstatic that this thread was created, and dumbfounded as to how I never had the idea. Anyway, here are some favorites:

-Garden State
-Clerks
-This Is England
-City Of God
-The Big Lebowski
-In The Loop
-Full Metal Jacket
-True Romance
-Sexy Beast
-Snatch
-Lost In Translation
-Children Of Men
-Pulp Fiction
-Dead Man’s Shoes
-Do The Right Thing

Now, these aren’t necessarily the films that I believe to be the.best, although some of them fit that description. Instead, they’re films that I can watch anytime, that I’ve grown to love on a personal level just from multiple viewings or characters that really hit home- that sort of thing.

Any recommendations based on my taste would be lovely.

No Boogie Nights ?

Can’t believe it slipped my mind, so yes, Boogie Nights can undoubtedly be added to the list.

I despised The Losers… I actually have a fondness for ridiculous, over the top films (Crank is one of my favorites), but it disappointed to no end. Hope you enjoy it a little more than I did.

I don’t know why everyone loves This Is England. I thought it was awful.
