(500) Days of Summer
(500) Days of Summer, first and foremost, belongs to its stars. The chemistry of Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel was beyond spectacular. Greeting card writer, Tom is introduced to his boss' assistant, Summer. He immediately falls in love with her looks and later learns that she isn't looking for anything serious but it doesn't stop him from going to any lengths to have Summer be his. This "romantic" comedy makes the concept of romantic comedies appealing again, for I have yet to see anything that matches the brilliance of this story as well as the exceptional writing and direction the film is taken in. In addition, the soundtrack for the movie is superb and matches what each of the characters are going through so perfectly. This is simply what a refreshingly honest comedy should be like. 4 out of 4 stars.
