10 years later, Scott Pilgrim’s world is over



This week marks the 10th anniversary Scott pilgrim against the world, Edgar Wright’s adaptation of the popular comic book in which a skinny indie rocker has to fight his girlfriend’s evil exes (but it is not considered an attack as the story takes place in a world where raging male insecurity rebounds as a classic video game- Tropics manifested). Aside from the fact that Michael Cera looks like an asshole who can hold his own against Captain America …

… the most impressive achievement of the film is the meticulously faithful replica of the comic, which was filmed in many locations that inspired the original work of art.

But only a decade later that couldn’t be done. Scott Pilgrims Toronto has practically disappeared. Sure, Scott’s crappy apartment is still there – though it’s not a real apartment, just a shed that somehow hasn’t been converted into an uncomfortable Airbnb for die-hard fans.

But other locations have changed completely. The Goodwill store that Scott and Knives frequent, for example, is now a much less ironically hip gym.

Then there is Honest Ed’s, the mammoth discount store and the Toronto landmark that often lurks in the background of the film:
