(500) Days of Summer or A side of my life I've never seen on Celluloid?

Now I can't really call this a review because it's more like kindred spirits. I know I know Sounds lame. GET OFF MY BACK! but anyway, if any one movie could tell the story of David West and it not be about me, It would be (500) Days of Summer. I'm sure the Film Connects with every Hopeless Romantic out there, but I see so much of my self in Joseph Gordon- Levitt's character, just only if he was a bit more Nerdy (even tho he did see him self as Han Solo) and I was thinner. But he even with him taking a job to just pay bills and it not being what he dreams of doing. To one day seeing life in a whole new way and opening his eyes to the world around him after he's had his heart broken. Not to Mention I'm in love with Zooey Deschanel as well

If anything it's just been motivational to no belief. I wish I could find words to describe how this film has made me feel, besides fantastic. I've been right where he is many times before. And Even from the looks of what going on in my life right now, I feel I'm closing in on the point in my life where Joseph's character ends up at the end of the film. I can't even begin to talk about all the parallels with this movie and my life. It's nuts, but ok I'm done creaming over this movie for now. I wanted to be able to write a review on it, but maybe after I watch it again I can do a proper one.

  1. I think I'm more like Tom, albeit slightly, by virtue of my music collection.
    And I'm the type of idiot who falls for a girl just because she likes the same stupid pop music I do.

    When I saw the film, during the opening sequence with him in his room, I was like, "Holy, fuck I own all those albums! No wonder I'm a such a sad bastard."

  2. I dont think he fell for her because of the music, he was already crushing on her before the elevator.

  3. But it was The Smiths that pushed into high gear! And his little sister berates him for falling for someone just because they're musical taste happens to overlap!

  4. there was still more it then that, with him not being able to get over her and move on, is just a parallel with him not being to leave the job he was at to fallow his dreams, until one day some fucking cats on really bad post cards makes him snap. Giving him the Chance to quit work or Life as I see. Like the cat card, he to was basically committing suicide, in order for him to start living again

  5. but I like I said there is alot everyone can take away from this film, thats what makes it great, so many people can connect with Tom's character on so many levels. This film talks to guys like us, to the guys that have never just fit in. So yeah we are all going to see our selves in His Character.

  6. I was just picking up on your comment that you wished he was nerdy. In one aspect I'm more like Tom (music taste) and you're more like Tom in other regards (personal life, job stuff).

    He's pretty relateable for us, given our histories. His sink into depression reminded me of my more down moments, though they were never as drawn out or down as his.
