And it’s painfully current – the kind of film that begs you to use the term “zeitgeist” (which I will NOT). Scott Pilgrim feels like a puree of 2010 (or, more specifically, being twentysomething in 2010) reduced over medium heat and injected directly into the aorta: irony, sincerity, nerdy hipsters, hip nerds, all turned on their heads and back again, all drenched in 8-bit nostalgia for a 1980s childhood.

This is why it is so unfortunate that the movie did so poorly: it is probably the movie that most reflect our times.

Scott Pilgrim is a purée of 2010: a portrait of nerdy hipsters that captures the zeitgeist. Not that I would EVER use that word – Telegraph Blogs
