⭐️⭐️⭐️ EDGAR WRIGHT ⭐️⭐️⭐️ Edgar Wright’s movies really speak to me, every choice he makes is brilliant and I absolutely love his work. It’s hard for me to pick a favourite !! What’s YOUR favourite????
Hi! Hello ! Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World is on netflix for the FIRST TIME. I wish I even had words to describe how important, amazing, and wonderful both @radiomaru and @edgarwright are ? Bryan Lee O’Malley created one of the first pieces I had read that made me LOVE graphic novels and comics in general. Everything from his simple art style to his ability to write a real and raw story about two people changing, growing and being not terrible makes me tear up each read through. The film that Edgar made... oh BOY. Everything from the soundtrack to the cinematography to the accurate stylization of this adaptation ! Not to mention Michael Cera, Alison Brie, Chris Evens, Anna Kendrick, Aubrey Plaza, Alison Pill, Ellen Wong, Kieran Culkin, Jason Schwartzman, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead made this film COME TO LIFE. all of them were perfect. Idk friends, this piece is utter perfection and so fun and it’s such a good look into how to not idealize your partner and not be shitty in general and it sucks that people misinterpret the story or hate the story because they’re just taking the manic pixie dream girl troupe and equating it to being a film that indulges in it as opposed to a commentary and story about not being THAT TROUPE. Idk i have lots of feelings but all of them good i love this story and this film! If you’ve never watched it, pls do 💞 #scottpilgrimvstheworld#scottpilgrim#comics#bryanleeomalley#ramonaflowers#imagecomics#edgarwright#film
Guess who is going on a huge solo adventure to Europe this weekend? Not only has Emily let me drag her to almost all my sketch adventures, but is a totally rad friend I 10/10 recommend. Thank you for not only celebrating my early b-day today, but drinking coffee at late open mics, taking me to hipster musical festivals, introducing me to @edgarwright films, and listening to me vent about the dumbest stuff. In just the short year we’ve been friends we’ve gone on the craziest sketch adventures. Seeing Reservoir Dogs in an opera house that got struck by lighting. A haunted pub crawl. An obnoxious amount of Body//Talk events. Thanks for being the Sergeant Angel friend to my Gary King side ✌️ see you in November!!!! #winterpark#edgarwright#edgarwrightplssupportourfriendship
Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)
Directed by Edgar Wright
Ahead of it's time and downright shimmering with it's own geekiness, this movie will be remembered as a pop culture icon for ages to come.
I genuinely had no idea how inventive and bold this movie was, and I was even less aware of how well it has aged. It reminds us of a time when we knew relatively nothing about Michael Cera, except that he played mild-mannered boys really well.
This also cemented Edgar Wright as a go-to artistic and comedic action director, and it makes me sad that we'll never be able to see his version of Ant-Man.
Scott Pilgrim VS The World is a criminally underrated action/comedy movie. Michael Cera plays Scott Pilgrim, a professional underachiever and bassist for the band "Sex Bob-Omb." Scott meets a beautiful, mysterious girl named Romana Flowers (played by Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and wants to date her. In order to do so Scott must defeat her seven, evil exes in battle. The movie is like a graphic novel, with comic book like settings, styles and narration. The movies sense of "norm" is often broken, particularly in the fight scenes but somehow, that adds to it. Familiar faces show up in this movie as well. Fans of Parks and Recreation will be pleased to see Aubrey Plaza playing Julie. Anna Kendrick also shows up from time to time as Scott's sister, Stacey Pilgrim and the soon to be household name, Brie Larson, (Captain Marvel) plays Envy Adam's. Chris Evan's as well makes an appearance as one of the ex's. Edgar Wright directs and I will most definitely be watching more of his movies. The special effects and cgi are great, and the comedy has something for everyone. Sataire, juvenile, observational, blink and you miss it, awkward and surreal are plastered everywhere in this movie. I absolutely recommend this movie to everyone and I'm sure other people will agree.
At the time of posting this you can watch it on Netflix
I’m not sure how many times I’ve seen this one, easily 10, probably closer to 15. This movie does everything right, it’s so smart and you can clearly see @edgarwright ’s love of the genres he’s sending up. A lesser director and it could’ve come off as mean-spirited. Every viewing I find another favorite line. This time it was “Couldn't see his face, could I? Not made of eyes!” Amazing.
“I know you play mysterious and aloof just to avoid getting hurt. I know you have reasons for not wanting to talk about your past. I want you to know I don’t care about any of that stuff because I’m in lesbians with you.”

SCOTT PILGRIM VS THE WORLD (2010)
Written by: Edgar Wright and Michael Bacall (Based on the Graphic Novels by Bryan Lee O'Malley)
Directed By: Edgar Wright.
One of my all time favourite films. Packed full of flawless humour, cool pop-culture references, exciting fights and epic visuals. Every single scene is guaranteed to make you laugh. There are epic fight scenes pared with an awesome soundtrack; and amazing Editing. This film solidifies Edgar Wright as one of the best director's ever. There are a few faults but these are either intentional or minor. There is also a deeper thematic meaning in this film- Don't fight purley on winning the respect of others, keep fighting for yourself. I couldn't reccomend this more (though it's not for everyone).
99/100 (AVALIABLE ON #Netflix IN THE USA)

“An awe-inspiring piece of filmmaking from Edgar Wright that plays out as a musical through the lens of an action thriller. Sweet, funny and utterly original — you won’t see a film like it this year.” – Terri White, Empire⠀
