On the 5th installment of our Missing Pieces series, Rico Albarracin joins me to talk about Edgar Wright’s 2010 comic book adaptation Scott Pilgrim Vs The World. A celebration of nerd culture, it’s become a cult hit over time, even if audiences didn’t immediately respond to the film or its soon to be hugely famous cast at the time. Puzzle pieces include Speed Racer, 500 Days Of Summer, Sin city and The Wizard.
As always, SPOILER ALERT for Scott Pilgrim Vs The World and the movies we discuss!
Writer / Director – Edgar Wright
Starring Michael Cera, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Kieran Culkin, Anna Kendrick, Brie Larson, Alison Pill, Aubrey Plaza, Jason Schwartman

MISSING PIECES is a side series of Piecing It Together where we look at a movie from the last 3-30 years so that we can cover some films that came out before the creation of our podcast. Unlike a regular episode, my guest gets to pick a movie, and we also look forward to any movies that came after that it may have itself inspired as well. We started this side series during the theater shut down of 2020 and will continue it as long as there is a lack of new theatrical releases to cover.
