Now that 'Scott Pilgrim vs. The World' is freshly arrived on DVD and Blu-ray, you can finally experience the movie that has already grown into a rabid cult hit. One of the most-talked-about aspects of 'Scott Pilgrim' was its dizzying mash-up of visual magic with pop culture influences from video games, comic books and rock & roll, under the visionary eye of director Edgar Wright. But in addition to his unique lens for filmmaking, Edgar Wright is also a hardcore fan of cinema and all of the crazy, creative ideas it has displayed.

As a special treat for the Moviefone audience, Edgar Wright took a trip to the seriously awesome New York Video -- located at 949 1st Avenue -- to shine the spotlight on five under-appreciated films that influenced the whirlwind madness of 'Scott Pilgrim.'

So if you're up for a few great movie recommendations -- a cornucopia of international action, rock & roll musical, superhero and much more -- sit back, watch and enjoy.
