In full disclosure, I hated this movie. Most of my friends loved it, and it is often a topic of divisive conversation. That being said, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World has gained a fairly huge cult following since its 2010 release, and this week it gets the Honest Trailer treatment from the gang at Screen Junkies. I had several issues with the film, and number one is Michael Cera. I’ll put it delicately. I’m not a fan of his work. He has essentially played the same character with the same traits in nearly every one of his films, so much so that This is the End did a hilarious riff on him as a drugged out version of himself, obsessed with excess so much that as he dies on screen he pines for his cell phone. Number two, I felt like I was watching a movie with ADD… first it was teenage rom com, then a music video, then a video game… and I quickly stopped caring. But my biggest issue is something that narrator Jon Bailey picks up on… so let’s get to it!
A clever YouTube user going by the handle ChiefBrodyRules (yes, he does) has taken this year’s Marvel-ous superhero blockbuster Captain America: The Winter Soldier and reconfigured it into an awesome fan trailer done in the style of a video preview for a 1980’s Cannon Films action flick.
You can watch the trailer in all its fuzzy glory here below.
