The 50 Best Comic Book Movies

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

Director: Edgar Wright
Year: 2010
Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World is a landmark achievement: the first comic adaptation to not only successfully translate the look and visual cues of a comic (especially one inspired by video games), but also the pacing, the tone, the energy, and the personality. This is not a movie based on a comic, it is a comic come to life. A killer soundtrack and terrific performances by Michael Cera as Scott and supporting actors Kieran Culkin, Chris Evans, and Brandon Routh are just gravy. Amazing fight choreography and sexy ladies Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Ellen Wong are even more gravy on top of the first gravy. This is the rare movie that takes awesome source material and makes it even more awesome.
