So I just watched (500) days of summer for the fourth time, and let me just say that it's as good as watching it the first time, if not better, and I wanted to talk about it just because my blog seems like a safe enough place to pour all my feelings out onto. Let me just say that if you haven't seen this film then WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN? It is actually one of my favourite films of all time, and if you haven't seen it, then I want you to pop down to blockbusters, or log onto lovefilm.com and watch this film. (also this post contains spoilers, so do watch the film before carrying on please)
|Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel being perfect as per usual|
So if you have already seen this film, then I don't really need to explain what it is about, however if you haven't and are still reading on *tut tut* then let me give you a quick overview without giving anything away. Tom is a young man who works in an office as someone who designs and writes greeting cards for people. Summer is the new girl in the offcie working as Tom's bosses assisstant. Throughout the film we see how Tom and Summers relationship progresses and eventually falls apart. But, (quoted from the film) "this is not a love story" and I suppose in some ways that is true.
Let me just take a step back without looking too analytical and look at the casting, which mind you, was amazing. Joseph Gordon-Levitt is certainly a very beautiful man, and Zooey Deschanel, an equally beautiful woman. I highly salute the person who put these two beautiful people together. Both of them played their characters amazingly and throughout the film I was just aching at how perfect they were together. Also, their actual characters, Tom and Summer were also beautiful, particularly Tom and his love for architecture. Both of them also loved music, and the amount of The Smiths and The Beatles references were the cutest. Hello, who doesn't like Ringo and Octopus' Garden? Okay, so basically this was just a flawless film and very RELEVANT. It showed that love doesn't always go perfectly, but it does work out in the end, one way or the other. Also, lets face it, the expectations vs reality scene was bloody brilliant.
|Take me here and i'll marry you okay?|
The only thing I could fault with this film is that we never got to see WHO Summer marries in the end, but I guess that was the whole point of the film, to leave us wondering who and what caused everything to go so perfectly wrong between Tom and Summer.
So i've been watching about one film a day for the past few days and will be doing so for a while (I even have a list go me) so hopefully I can talk more about the great films I'm watching! If I don't, then i'll blame my upcoming GCSE exams okay bye x
