So I was not a big fan of the Scott Pilgrim movie. However I am a big fan of old school video games (I had an original nintendo - and it remained in good condition for a long time - no need to blow in to the cartridges or the cartridge slot...) but I digress.

Scott Pilgrim Punch Out Edition. So I was aware of this edit for a long time but just didn't have much interest in it. However, I didn't really know anything about the edit, I hadn't read the cutlist or intention. I really enjoyed That One Guy's Equation of Crime. I thought it was pretty inventive. So I decided to take a chance on this edit.

Nice DVD menus. I always like when an editor takes the time to create some decent looking DVD menus.

The narrative was good and I felt like I was watching a video game. The pacing was great, and I gotta say I don't mind a short running time!

Some of the transitions and fades were a bit abrupt. And I noticed a few rough spots in the audio (but I kinda purposefully listen for those when I watch edits - probably a bit unfair, but fanedit.org has changed me lol).

The audio and video quality were good.

Another creative and inventive edit! Nicely done That One Guy!

I really enjoyed this edit. The original movie fell down in many ways as it tried to cram as much of the six books into a feature-length film. That One Guy manages to do something different here, using footage from the video game to make an edit of Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, the narrative is of the fights and manages to do this pretty well.

The video game opening manages to avoid a lot of the early story and brings us up to speed wth the story at the start of the first battle. It does this comfortably and I really didn't feel like anything was missing.

There were a couple of moments where I wondered if there'd been a hard-edit or if it was like this originally. If I hadn't been watching in knowledge this was a fanedit, I certainly wouldn't have noticed. The audio editing was also subtle so even if there might have been issues, they were soft and mostly unnoticable.

The pacing of the edit was excellent, there was enough of the peripheral story to give it a real plot and I also enjoyed all of the bonuses included, including the alternate endings.

A thoroughly enjoyable edit.

I went into this having enjoyed the original but I hadn't watched it since I bought it five years ago. So I was a bit rusty on it though I remember really enjoying it but there being too much crammed into it.

What a clever edit this is. It paces this at a breakneck speed, with it feeling really like an old school game. Even more so than the original. I cannot recommend this enough; it was a really cool way to reimagine a cool movie.

Just a quick review, I enjoyed this immensely, I've seen scott pilgrim several times, with two extended edits on top of that, so logically it makes sense that this time I'd opt for a shorter cut.

I really liked the way this was carried out, skipping all the story to get to the fights with a little bit of this and that in between, the storyboard stills from the video game helped to flesh things out.

Like others have said the transitions sometimes seemed a bit... forced or abrupt and noticeable, but as this is one of those edits where the intention is not to make a better film, I am willing to overlook the obvious.

Its a faster paced sott pilgrim with more of a video game feel, that said I liked the inclusion of the other characters endings from the game, and the use of the game's soundtrack in the end credits.

very nice effort.

That was a really enjoyable edit. I already liked the original one, but this takes it to another level, more videogame so than the original.
It was really cool, great editing, sound and you don't feel the hours passing, it is just a good way to see it.
