Episode 29: Scott Pilgrim vs The World (2007)

This week we leap to another Edgar Wright film, this time through cinematographer Bill Pope. Will we love it as much as the last two Wright films we’ve watched? You may be surprised by the answer. And where will we leap to next? Will we pick another crew member to continue our Edgar Wright run, or move on to films that are not as great…?

Season 2, Episode 2

THE Leap

How did we leap here?

Cinematographer: Bill Pope

To: Scott Pilgrim vs The World

Chosen by:
Crew (Mike)
Film (Glenn)

Cinematographer Bill Pope allows us to jump to another Edgar Wright film, although he has also worked on many other great films. Hopefully we get to leap with him again in the future.

Where are we leaping to?

Actor: Mary Elizabeth Winstead

To: Die Hard 4.0

Chosen by:
Actor (Scott)
Film (Mike)

Mary Elizabeth Winstead plays a much bigger role in Scott Pilgrim vs The World – the love interest that inspires Scott to “vs the world” but as we move on to Die Hard 4.0 she is now the daughter of action hero John McClane in a smaller, but still significant role. At least we didn’t leap with her to Final Destination 3 which is nowhere near as good as Die Hard 4.0 (although would be a fun watch to discuss on the podcast… maybe one day…)
