Just when you thought the Wachowski’s hit rock bottom with Speed Racer,the worst cartoon racing movie of all time, they manage to make Cloud Atlas, the worst Sci-Fi Film, the worst Pirate Movie, the worst Zany Geriatric Escape-Comedy, the worst Victorian Romance, the worst 70′s Blaxploitation flick, AND the worst Post-Apocalyptic Fantasy film ALL AT ONCE, smashing them into the most excruciatingly unbearable 3-hour marathon of audience abuse ever made.
But what did you think? Our review is on the way… which we weren’t going to bother with until it stole 3 hours of our lives away and we felt the deep responsibility to prevent it from happening to you, too.
You’d never know it from the opening weekend at the Box Office, but Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is one seriously ingenious film. Ingenious from the pacing, to the visuals, to the meta-data, which is to say nothing for the fact that Edgar Wright made an incredible adaptation of the source material at the same time! Whatever you do today, make sure that it includes checking this movie out!
As a film and as an adaptation of Stephanie Meyer’s bestselling tween romance novels, Eclipse’s director, David Slade, most certainly out-did either of his predecessors. While the love story remains intact to satisfy Nat’s need for any angsty werewolf/vampire/human love triangle, Matt appreciated the clear effort taken to attract a male audience by adding a dark and more violent visual style, that was clearly riffing on actual horror elements for the first time in the series.
