Best Movie About Summer this Summer

I was aware of emerging disparate opinions on 500 Days of Summer and wondered how the movie would go for me. Turns out I liked it, but there was a while where I didn't know what way I'd be going with it.

Important Bullet Points:
  • I still can't believe that Summer likes the Smiths. I never would have guessed it.
  • When did I know I was on board with this movie? If you've seen it, when Thomas checks his reflection. You know what I'm talking about. And if you haven't seen it, you'll see and you'll understand.
  • After he saw what he saw in his reflection I was like "Awesome! This is a movie for guys!"
  • Is that mysterious enough an incentive to get you to go out and see this movie? Made it worth it for me.
  • Sometimes I thought the soundtrack was whack, sometimes I thought the soundtrack was perfect.
  • I enjoyed many of the creative little conceits, particularly the Expectations/Reality sequence and the little French film. Which is odd, really I should have hated the little Film
  • All the actors were real good, I particularly liked Thomas's boss. What a good guy.
  • Doooood...Lyla Garrity.
  • I can't wait to see what kind of Cobra Commander that kid makes.

totally agree about cobra commander. i became a fan of this kid in lookout. and ever since then my opinion of him keeps getting better. kind of makes me want to see stop-loss.

The reflection = genius. Worth the price of admission.
