EP. 407.4 — Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

Amy & Paul take on all comers for 2010’s Edgar Wright comic extravaganza Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World! They discuss Michael Cera’s unusual casting as a feckless player, learn about Scott’s original fate in the film’s first cut, and revisit the era of pop-culture hyperliteracy that birthed this story. Plus: comparing the film with Scott Pilgrim’s recent anime re-imagining.

 

Next week, Paul and Amy are talking about The Emperor’s New Groove! You can join the conversation on Paul’s Discord at https://discord.gg/ZwtygZGTa6
