Tonight my brother took me out for my birthday, since I won’t be with him on Friday when it’s my birthday. We had dinner with two of his friends followed by the film “500 Days of Summer“. I’ve been wanting to see this film since I saw the trailer earlier this year, and I should know better than to go into a film with high expectations because I’m always let down. Don’t get me wrong it wasn’t a terrible movie but it was a little too real for me in a way that brought back old memories of a previous relationship. I found myself comparing myself to Tom (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) and the desperation of trying to win someone back, being blinded by the good memories of a person when deep down there were more bad memories than good, etc. I found myself wanting to slap Summer (Zooey Deschanel) and tell her to snap out of it and get her shit together. If only it was that simple in relationships. I guess it’s good that it engaged thoughts and memories but it’s leaving me a little melancholy.
I’m still unsure how I feel about the film but you should see it if it looked interesting to you. There are funny parts so it’s not completely a downer. I’ll probably see it again when it comes on dvd and give it another chance. Also I found a cool clip of my favorite scene from the movie. C’mon who doesn’t love when people break out into synchronized dancing in a movie? Especially when it’s Joseph Gordon-Levitt!
