Despite its disappointing performance at the box office, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World has become a cult film since its release back in 2010.
Few movies have ever managed to create such a unique tone, and much of this was down to Edgar Wright’s wonderful direction. The transitions between the scenes were particularly good, as nearly all of them helped give the film a retro, comic-book feel.
Such a tone was heightened still further by the terrific soundtrack, with many of the most memorable songs being highly reminiscent of the alternative-rock scene in the 1990s.
The casting was also spot on. Michael Cera and Mary Elizabeth Winstead were the perfect choices for Scott and Ramona, and Kieran Culkin was brilliantly funny as Wallace.
It’s no surprise, therefore, that Scott Pilgrim has now developed a cult following.
