Rewatched this movie after my friend recommended it to me.
500 Days of Summer starts by saying that this is “not a love story” which is true to a certain extent, it’s definitely not your typical romantic movie. And one of the major differences is that it’s mainly narrated from the guy’s perspective.
To be honest, I initially didn’t like it much, I more of hated it, I hated it because it was so easy to relate to it, but now it’s bittersweet, I won’t say “I love it” but it’s one of the memorable films that are hard to forget, it’s a movie that leaves me feeling unsure about how I feel about it.
I personally don’t recommend this movie to couples, unless your relationship is crack free, don’t watch this together, it will only break those cracks wide open.
I will leave you with a quote I liked from the movie:
“Next time you look back, I really think you should look again.”
Side note, one of my favorite onscreen pairings have to be Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel !
One of my favorite pastimes is watching movies, especially in the cinema, I am starting to enjoy the moments of shared laughs and tears amongst a crowd of -almost- like minded movie goers (The rest of you suck, you know who you are! You chair kickers/phone talkers you!)
Anyways…back on track, one of my favorite genres of all time is Animation Movies and I have rarely ever been disappointed by an animation movie (but it has occurred before).
I recently watched Big Hero 6 and wanted to share my quick review on it. The first thing I noticed is that it’s not one of the typical cliche Disney movies (Which I still unshamingly love to bits) where all the characters belt out songs as they dance in a perfectly choreographed manner. This movie has a coming of age feel to it, and an awsome soundtrack to boost that as well, it’s fun and carries a lot of life lessons and I would honestly recommend siblings to watch it together. But it’s not a sibling catered movie only, it’s fun for everyone, parents, kids, young adults etc.
There were laughs as there were tears (I tried my best to hold back the flood) but the movie’s main characters pull on your heart strings, especially Baymax the lovable robot character that might look like a huge marshmallow, but it’s only to contain his big heart. The movie has loss, success, grief, rage, compassion and everything else in between. I don’t want to give too much away but I do recommend you carry a few tissues with you!
For me it’s a 10/10 and a movie I would be definitely adding to my movie collection!
: It’s still a Marvel/Disney movie mix hence, I recommend you stick all the way to the end of the credits!
