500 Days of Summer


In January I wrote a post called Just Believe where I talked about how one of my main beliefs is that everything happens for a reason. So it’s no surprise that I fell in love with the movie 500 Days of Summer.

Things I love about this movie:

– The basic meaning behind the whole thing. Everything happens for a reason, every place you are at any moment of the day. There’s a reason for it.

– The movie’s catch phrase “this is not a love story, this is a story about love”

– The soundtrack! I downloaded it as soon as I finished watching it & have been listening to it ever since.

– Joseph Gordon-Levitt. As if I didn’t love him enough from his younger acting days & then of course Inception, he was beyond amazing in this movie. At first I didn’t see him as the right person to play the part of Tom, but as the movie went on I realized that no one could have done it better. Also, he’s so darn cute.

– The way the movie goes back and forth between the earlier days and the later days and ties it all together slowly through the hour and a half.

– The ending. If you didn’t see this movie I don’t want to give it away, but you need to go watch it immediately. I can’t believe I waited this long to see it & now I can’t wait to go out and buy it!

  1. I adore this soundtrack but I haven’t gotten around to seeing the movie yet. Its in my netflix queue but I really do thing I am going to love it. Glad that you enjoyed it!

    • I tried watching it last year and couldn’t watch the whole thing either, but the second time I got really into it. The film is only an hour and a half long which isn’t too bad- you should definitely give it another shot! It’s worth it! 🙂
