500 Days Of Summer Poster

I saw 500 days of Summer a couple of weeks ago and, as much as I usually like a lot stories about love, even those who fail and are not meant to be, I didn't enjoy the 500 Days of Summer experience.

Firstly I should say that the main character, Tom, played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, is the only credible one in the movie. All the others, were, in my opinion, totally crappy clichés. Including the woman he falls in love with, Summer played by Zooey Deschanel. I find this actress has poor talent and/or personality, but I might be biased here because I knew her older sister first, Emily Deschanel the main character in the TV show Bones. They look, talk, and act alike, which can be really annoying.

The music was not that bad but even though I like most of the songs individually, I think they didn't fit the scenes which they were attributed to.

All in all, I think the voluntary lack of chemistry between the characters put a distance between me and the film. In short, I was disappointed, which, truth be told, might also be because I was expecting something very good, along the lines of Juno or Garden State, two absolute must haves.

One very good song from the movie: The Temper Trap - Sweet Disposition. I first heard of it while playing it in Tap Tap Revenge on my iPhone (extreme mode, of course).
