Scott Pilgrim Vs The World is a film that is divided into two camps: Those who get it and love it, and those who think it is a crappy, angry, misguided look at the male obsession with manic pixie dream girls. Jim and Teal found themselves stuck in the second camp. Were they simply too old for the movie’s target audience back in 2010? Or was this a case of a movie that is better upon re-evaluation?
These days many regard Scott Pilgrim as Edgar Wright’s 2010 cult classic, so Jim and Teal decided they needed to give this movie a second look. So, for their second Netflix watch party experience (which is now called teleparty) they opted for Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World.
So, get your streamers ready, and when Jim and Teal tell you to, hit play and follow along with their commentary.
Please Note: Unlike the majority of Stuff We’ve Seen podcasts, this episode is designed to be played in synch with Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World. You may notice some gaps with silence when Jim and Teal are watching and not saying anything poignant or smug. Also, at the start of the first fight scene Jim and Teal had an internet drop out. They paused the movie and got things back on track. That stuff is edited out, but if you notice things go slightly out of synch, you may need to pause and adjust to get it right. We apologize for this.
Let us know what you think of Scott Pilgrim Vs The World, and tell us what you think our next teleparty Netflix movie should be.
