Watch: Honest Trailer For 'Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World' Highlights The Film's Pure Nerd Wish Fulfillment

This week, the folks at Screen Junkies have decided to put Edgar Wright‘s “Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World” on the carving block with their latest Honest Trailer, and they certainly kick the movie around a bit.

I was under the impression that everyone thought ‘Scott Pilgrim’ was pretty rad, but Screen Junkies declare the movie to prioritize style over substance, to be filled with unlikeable characters, and to feel like you’re watching someone else playing a video game. Ouch. For me, as a slice of the moment of adolescence where you have to start thinking outside your own self-involved box funneled through indie rock, video games, and manga and realized with genuine passion, it’s pretty terrific. 

Give the Honest Trailer a look below, and let us know if Screen Junkies got it wrong this time in the comments section.
