500 Days of Summer Reviews
The soundtrack is fantastic and used perfectly throughout. Webb has good ear for music to compliment a keen eye for where it belongs.
What makes this film though is two excellent central performances. Deschanel is her usual geeky, quirky doe-eyed self and it fits perfectly in this film. She even manages to make you cast her as the 'bad guy' when most of her screen time she remains endlessly likable.
It is easy to see why Tom falls in love...
Levitt is also on fine form in this. He brings some neat comic touches to his character (we all know he can do comedy) but also manages a wide range of emotions as he moves through the rollercoaster that is being in love with Summer.
The film has an honest and realistic approach that sets it above your average love story. In a sense this is the anti-romcom, a film that deals with real love in all its brutal glory
Theres always an Autumn after the Summer.
I absolutely loved this movie. Brilliant performance by Joseph Gordon !!!
Sounds complicated? Yes, it does. It is what relationships and love can do to a person. Sometimes we see things that may be perfect for us that are actually imperfect. The story was good, but I feel like something else really made this film stronger. After watching it the second time or more, I noticed very subtle expressions from the male protagonist that really amazed me with his acting skills in this movie. You can almost feel how he felt during his moments whether it was during his attraction or anger. You could see it in his eyes and simple facial expressions how he truly reacted to every detailed moment or comment. The emotions felt so real and that is what made this movie even better. If you do not know what I mean, you must see it for yourself. Or if you have watched it already, watch it again and pay attention to the detail in the main character's expressions and how he reacts to every comment the lead female says.
