{500} days of Summer

In honor of watching “{500} Days of Summer” last night with my sister, I’m posting my original review of the film from Wednesday, August 5, 2009 :

I went to see 500 days of Summer last night with my sister. I went primarily because Regina Spektor’s “Us” plays during the trailer. (The movie’s opening is remarkably similar to the trailer.)

It got bad reviews because it jumps around time. Sometimes looking at “good” days and sometimes jumping ahead to “bad” days. I don’t like movies like that because they get confusing. Quickly. It annoyed me during this movie also, but the story was good enough to keep me interested.

I started out the film really disliking the guy and his sister. As the movie progressed, my feeling towards him changed slightly.

I highly recommend* this movie to people who can follow a plot that is not as straightforward as the normal Hollywood plot.

* – Highly recommend. Think 7.5-8.5 out of 10!
