Movie Monday's

Hiya guys!



Everyone know's that Monday's are a horrible day to get up and go. After relaxation and family time all weekend it's hard to go back to the 9-5 job. Each Monday, I'm going to give you a movie to beat the Monday blues. So grab your hot chocolate (with all the marshmallows and whipped cream), your duvet, your comfy slippers and slip into a world that isn't your own for two hours. Trust me it'll make everything better!

500 Days of Summer

This charming little movie has become a gem in my collection ever since I bought it on offer about 2 years ago. At first, I got mixed reviews when I put it on my shelf but I decided that I would preserver and watch it as I'm a complete sucker for romance and the cover seemed to promise this. 

'This is a story of boy meets girl, but you should know upfront, this is not a love story.'

This movie, instead of focusing on the perfect happily ever after, focuses on the uncertainty of love. The confusion you can feel and the problems you face when someone doesn't love you back. 

The movie focus's on Tom (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) and his on/off relationship with Summer (Zooey Deschanel). Tom is a man who believes completely in love and Summer, is someone who believes true love cannot exist. It follows Tom, his relationship with Summer and his realization she will never love him back.


If you want a romance movie that isn't all about falling head over heels and everything going perfectly, this is for you. I love this movie and would recommend to all of you. Specially as it's Valentines Day soon and sometimes we need reminding that not everything ends up perfect (specially if you are single  ;) )

Have any of you watched this movie? What's your take on it?
