If there are two fundamental truths that life has taught us it’s: 1) Do good unto others, and you will be rewarded, and 2) Edgar Wright is a directing god. Wright is the director of the jaw-droppingly great Hot Fuzz, and this year’s just-as-good-if-not-better Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, set for a November 9th release on Blu-ray/DVD. And so we have a plethora of extras that more or less spotlight the innovative techniques used for the film’s unique style. While there’s not much in the form of Wright himself, the videos give us a sneak peek at what we can expect from the Blu-ray/DVD release. Check out the clips after the jump.
We are the heroes of our own lives and we view the world through our passions and our heartbreaks, our defeats and our triumphs. In Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Scott Pilgrim may be a dork/goof/slacker/quasi-jerk but he’s the hero of his life and willing to fight for the girl of his dreams as he traverses a world made of videogames, indie rock, kung-fu, romance, comedy, and Canada. Co-writer and director Edgar Wright has taken the tale of Scott Pilgrim and crafted a picture that is joyous, exciting, heartfelt, honest, blazingly original, and a work of pure brilliance that is easily one of the best films of the year.
If you can’t wait to see Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, but don’t want to be spoiled, then may I suggest giving the soundtrack and the score a listen? I suppose if you’re the most sensitive spoiler-wimp on the planet you won’t even want to listen to the film’s amazing music. But this article isn’t for you. It’s for all the awesome people who can enjoy these tunes right now and then re-experience them when they hear them in the context of the movie.
I’m probably going to buy the score and the soundtrack later today, but right now I’m enjoying it in all its streaming goodness over at Spinner [via Vulture]. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World opens this Friday.
