(500) Days of Summer
I've been looking forward to seeing this movie for what seems like the longest time, and thankfully it didn't disappoint. As you can tell from the poster its not really of love story, but more of the story of a relationship with a girl named Summer. Even so there were still a lot of cute romantic type moments. Of course there were a some sad parts, but it managed to have quite a few laugh out loud moments as well. Several that clearly amused the boy, although I'm not sure he'll admit it.
One tricky thing about the movie was the lack of chronological scenes. While I do enjoy he feel of movies that do this and understand the need for it, it still makes parts of the movies hard to follow. I think its partly that I feel the need to be able to fit every scene together. And while most scenes are preference by what number day it is, its hard to remember where each scene is supposed to go relative to the others.
Of course I love most any movie that takes place in Los Angeles. Even the little things like the scenes in Ikea make me a tiny bit homesick. (Really, someone needs to open up an Ikea in Louisiana.) Los Angeles itself feels the at least slightly the same way since they gave Zoey Deschanel a key to the city.
I'm really glad I got a chance to see this film before it left theaters, and I'd tell you to do the same. Its a really cute movie, and even if the boy won't admit it I do think he enjoyed it at least a small bit.
