On Revisiting "Big Hero 6" and "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World"

"From where I’m standing, I can’t see either movie having 'lingered in our cinematic lexicon' to an extraordinary degree. While Scott Pilgrim may have had a short-lived afterglow in the form of Sucker Punch, the kind of game it plays with post-production gimmicks – split screen, on-screen narrative text, visualised sound effects, and so on – hasn’t really caught on. Big Hero 6, meanwhile, hasn’t been able to make its mark on the superhero genre, all but disappearing in the past decade’s abundance of similarly-themed movies. By the logic of cinematic functionalism, this would suggest that neither work is worthy of being included in the canon."
