Flickchart Ranking: #2641
What do your fellow Flickcharters think?
soysauce – “The toughest decision of this summer. I loved both. Scott Pilgrim was visual treat, hilarious, and wonderfully entertaining. Inception was a smart sci-fi actioner built around an emotional core. In the end, Inception wins out for me, at least for now. Pilgrim’s presentation was a whole lot more fun, but Inception has a more fleshed out backbone.”
admiralpiett – “Sorry Nolan, but Scott Pilgrim was more visually inventive, and had a metric ton more fun and excitement to it.”
PCNewsOne – “Scott Pilgrim has been accused of having nothing at stake. The motivation at the heart of Inception would appear to be the cathartic letting-go of the guilt surrounding a loved-one’s suicide. Major stuff. So why is it that Inception feels empty while Scott Pilgrim dances delicately around the subject of desire in dazzling 8-bit brashness? The clincher is that Scott Pilgrim’s soundtrack didn’t make me feel nauseous. Scott Pilgrim gets the extra life.”
The Expendables may have won the box office battle last week but when all is said and done, Scott Pilgrim will probably end up winning the Flickchart war. This week features no such compelling storylines, and is definitely a week of quantity over quality. There are five wide releases this week, and all of them are on the “terrible looking” end of the spectrum.
