  • This post modern love story is never what we expect it to be -- It's thorny yet exhilarating, funny and sad, a twisted journey of highs and lows that doesn't quite go where we think it will.

500 Days of Summer Reviews

Guest Post: It is INDEED not a love story, but a story about LOVE.

If you’re reading this and you haven’t seen the movie, please GO AND WATCH IT.
If you want to see a REAL love story, this movie is for you.
I think that what I loved the most about this movie is that it makes you realize what other movies can’t about love :it shows you heartbreak and how bad it feels,and how blinded we are thinking sometimes that just because someone likes the same stuff as we do doesn’t mean they’re our “soulmate”.Sometimes love is not how other things make you want to see love like romantic movies and songs but how YOU feel it.
(500) Days of Summer is INDEED not a love story, but a story about love.
I think this movie overall gives us a refreshing look of what love really is. I felt that Tom was portraying the story of my life basically.
The movie has an amazing script, chemistry between the carachters and direction. Also amazing photography and soundtrack.
You’re going to laugh with this movie, you’re going to think about your own expieriences of love, you’re going to feel sad sometimes, you’re going to want to dance when the song “You Make My Dreams” comes up on the screen:you’re going to want to see this movie again.

  1. I can relate evvery bit of this move to my own life and seems as though I am seeing my own story..


    Wasting a lifetime
    Trying to find love
    Nothing happens
    No hope, no girl

    Suddenly see her
    But ten years before
    Can’t do anything
    Used to be friends, nothing more

    Now realized affection
    Can go no further
    Lost a lifetime
    And lost desire

    Try to forget
    But can’t
    Try to die
    But don’t

    Mind suddenly gone
    No end is near
    Nothing to do now
    But go on
