Scott Pilgrim vs. The World 
Not my cup of tea.
1.5/4 stars

Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World is a movie I don't really need to review, because user Yojimbo's review sums it all up.
It's a movie I was interested to see, because Michael Cera's style is very understated and quiet and I love Edgar Wright. The outcome: a sloppy one-laugh premise, sugar-coated with annoying special effects and uninteresting characters.
I think the main reason this film bombed at the box office is because it is very wrapped up in its own little world. This film is Strictly and Only targeted at retro gamers. I've played Mario Bros., I've owned a PlayStation 1 and while I don't consider myself a retro gamer, I understood the majority of the jokes and references to older games. But in today's society this film is so lost. That really took a lot away from the movie, because it is only relatable for retro gamers and no one else in particular.
Michael Cera and Mary Elizabeth Winstead are a disaster as a pair. They are two completely different people, Cera gets tiresome after ten minutes and Winstead is just plain annoying. Seriously. 'Teenage Facebook Girl' level Annoying.
The script is also pretty empty. The characters are forgettable and the infamous 7 Evil Exes are so overdone and stupid. So many interesting actors made out to be so silly in these irrational characters.
The only character that was legitimately funny was Kieran Culkin's character, but that isn't enough to save a movie.

Edgar Wright is of course very stylistic and has a lot of fun with different angles, but this just feels messy

It's a movie we didn't need. I can understand its cult following, but it doesn't include enough for all tastes. It's definitely not everyone's cup of tea, and it's certainly not my idea of a movie for everyone.
