I saw a movie called 500 days of summer this morning. To be honest, I had a lot of expectations from the movie. I thought it’ll be one of those movies that cheer you up and make you realize something great about life. Well, did it sort of make me realize something but..That was just…I didn’t need it. Anyway, what exactly this movie did to me was upset me, made me wanna murder the girl in it and even gave me a headache. The concept and the story and everything was fabulous but, I don’t know why I just don’t like the movie. Here’s a little idea of the story: Tom, the main character falls in love at first with a girl named Summer. And everything keeps going normal; she’s new administrative assistant at a greeting card company where he works. They become friends and she mentions about how she doesn’t believe in love, boyfriends or relationships and thinks that life will always come in between it. However, soon they become more than just friends and Tom realizes that he’s crazy in love with her BUT Summer, hah, is not. So basically the two characters are complete different from each other and the movie is about him looking back at the time he spent with Summer. I know the story sounds interesting and all but for some reason I kept getting irritated while watching the movie. I wanted to go inside the screen and grab the girl and shake her and like yell “what’s wrong with you?!” but…that’s just me. If you’ve been reading my blogs, you should know by now that I can be really weird.
Although the movie really annoyed me and made me really angry I also gained something from it. Well, sort of. The Smiths. Yes, the rock band. I knew about them and had a couple of their songs but never really paid much attention to their music, and after this movie I have started liking their songs a lot. So I’m going to download their songs and listen to them. I guess 500 days of summer wasn’t a bad idea, but seriously…I don’t like the girl in the movie one bit.
Alright now, I haven’t written anything in a while, I’m very busy…being confused I guess. It’s like…I don’t know what it is. I don’t feel like doing a lot of things. But I will definitely write more sometime soon.
