First of all, Sasha and I are so very pleased and excited to receive our first blog comments! Thanks to you lovely commenters, we love all your blogs so much, and the comments definitely made our day, even week!!!
Now, to get to business. 500 Days of Summer. WOW.
This is one of those movies that really sticks with me, that makes me consider things in my life differently, and that makes me want to try new clothing styles. For instance, Zooey Deschanel's pants! I covet ever pair of wide-legged high waisted pants she wore, and I only dream of pulling them off like that.
But beyond the gorgeous and amazing Zooey, the movie as a whole was beyond what I expected. I didn't expect to fall so madly in love with Joseph Gordon Levitt, for one thing. I left the movie unable to stop thinking about him, especially his dance number to Hall and Oats!
One final bit of love for this movie is the soundtrack. It so typical to love the soundtrack of an indie movie, but it fits the film so well. And I love the use of full songs; it's like the movie is made up of many music videos that all make a story. I love Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette for the same reason.
Overall, 500 Days is both a style and life inspiration for me!
