(500) Days of Summer ... Best Movie of the Year!

So the Friday before I went to Israel I went to see (500) Days of Summer down in San Jose after work with Michael. I'm not gonna get all analytical and such, cuz we all know I hate that crap, but the movie was amazing, and what I find more interesting is why I chose to watch it.

I went into the movie not really knowing much about it. I had never watched a preview, I didn't know who the actors were (well technically I had read their name, but I hadn't connected the names with any specific actors because I'm surprisingly terrible at remembering names and such ... kinda sad actually). Anyways, back to business ... So I was reading the Apple RSS feed and came across this article. So anyways, I read it and was really intruiged so I decided to go see the movie. I think it's one of the few movies I've actively pursued watching that I never searched for a preview of. Sometimes I obviously haven't been able to find the previews, but I didn't even go looking for it this time, and I still haven't watched it.

If you're intruiged in watching the preview, you can do so here.

I guess the best description of this film is that it's not a love story, it's a tale about love. So basically the main character is endlessly in love with a girl names Summer, and we get to see life through his eyes. But rather than just see life, we get little glimpses into his life, bouncing around from day 300+ to day 124, and is you watch the movie, you get to piece together what happened.

I definitely plan on rewatching this movie, possibly even in theaters (text me if you wanna). I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
