If you like game which i assume you do if you're here you must see this movie. It has many references to video games especially the Nes system. it has a good story and a crazy asian. You must see it. If you have what was your favorite part?

I don't know. When I saw the trailers I wasn't really interested, mainly because when you put Michael Cera in it...I don't know...
 
Besides that, can anybody convince me that the movie is actually worth watching?

I'm hearing pretty good things about the movie but are the video game references subtle and well-delivered or just obvious and in your face?

I loved the graphic novels but I'll probably end up waiting for this to come out on DVD.  It doesn't seem to be nearly as story driven as the first couple books were.

Was that monolithic picture really better than typing out a text reply? Anyway, I like the books and want to see the movie. However, this thread is gonna be hijacked by the anti-Michael Cera Brigade any minute.

It was fucking amazing.  My favorite parts were the fight scenes, so fucking amazing.  Also anybody who doesnt see the movie just because of micheal cera is a fucking retard.

this movie was awesome, it's disappointing that people dont watch it because michael cera is in it, he really did a great job with this. The Edgar Wright dialogue shines through really well.
 
btw, hating something because its "hipster" is in itself FUCKING HIPSTER. Watch a movie because it seems interesting dont get turned off because it seems attached to a general social crowd or something, god modern subculture is just so annoying. I went to the movies this friday and my choices were the expendables, step up 3d, and scott pilgrim. I chose scott pilgrim and enjoyed it done and done

well the movie was directed and written by Edgar Wright, the guy behind Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, which are in my opinion gems so if you don't want to get goaded by all the seemingly "hipster" references to video game culture and stuff, which is rubbish in my opinion, watch it for that kind of writing if you enjoyed those other movies.

Basically this.
 
It seems quite hilarious that the people I know who are interested in seeing this are the same people who turn around and go "Family Guy is trash, too many pop-culture refeerences".

Also, see, the funny thing is the film really isn't this. The videogame aesthetic is just that... an aesthetic. Most of the humor comes from the character dialogue, not from over references to something. All of these videogame references are there just as a backdrop, a way to tell the story.
I haven't read the comic book and I wasn't really looking forward to seeing this film... but I enjoyed it. So take that for what it's worth. It's a good film.

This.  I was surprised that the video game humor wasn't as forced as I thought it would be.  Most of it came from the goofy dialog.  

People need to get past the fact that Michael Cera is in it.  He was pretty unconventional, and it was an awesome movie.  My favorite part was probably the Lucas Lee scene.  Chris Evans is such a gifted comedic actor.

I thought it was great, but it seemed way more anime/manga inspired than video game inspired to me.  The fight scenes were fantastic.  I don't know what they did but they were more intense and better choreographed and executed than fights scenes in movies that are way more serious.  It's one of the few times where I sneak into a second (in this case 3rd) movie and seriously contemplate buying a ticket when I leave just to show support.

I saw it yesterday, it is a blast of film. The video game references are there but not blatantly in your face for the most part. I highly recommend it.

Ugh. When I saw the trailer for this movie, which had Micheal Cera's face followed up by the tagline of "an epic of epic epicness", I swore I'd never see this movie after holding back some vomit. 
 
But it's kinda starting to sound interesting..

I didn't want to see this movie because of Michael Cera but I am *so* glad I did. I bought the soundtrack... I really liked the music in the film.

The part that almost made me hurt myself laughing: The Wheel in Scott's head landing between the options "I gotta pee" and "who her?", make him say out-loud "I GOTTA PEE ON HER"...it happened so fast, but it was damn funny....

I really had no desire to see this, but my friend dragged me to it and I must say I was pleasantly surprised. It was funny, full of action, and over all just a cool, unique feeling movie. Go see it!

I saw it tonight, it was pretty awesome. What helps the whole video game thing work out is that it's incredibly consistent, usually serious about it and very well done. Something I enjoyed a lot about it was how all the subtext was written out on-screen. There were tons of audio cues and stingers and action-texts for events; few of which I found to be jarring or out of place. Some with the sliding scene transitions and fast cuts. It all really helped sell the live-action comic vibe.
 
In regards to the aforementioned seriousness - This isn't a spoiler as you can see this in the trailers: When someone dies they explode into coins. That's it. This fact is not lingered on for longer than a few seconds if at all. The first time it happens Scott is happy to find coins as it meant he can pay his bus fare. There's no wink and nudge. There's no questioning it. They're not over-sized CGI coins. They're just coins and that's just what happens. It keeping a straight face about most of this keeps it from feeling like it's "trying to hard". It's all ridiculous, but it's acceptable as such as it doesn't come across as faking it.
 
I found it to be a lot like the Naked Gun films in that regard. Fast wit, dead pan delivery, ridiculous circumstances and ordinary people with super-human abilities at convenient times.
 
Anyways, it was good. :)

So i just looked up the definition of Hipster.... holy crap i am very close to being one... and i thought i was just retro... Being and 80's child and all.
Edit:  OK so.... Being naturally Retro is OK.... wanting to be Retro is Hipster.

All you have to do is watch the TANG videos to see that video game references do not a good movie make.

True but i could counter this by saying playing video-games does not a movie reviewer make.... or something.
