Bloody loved it. Probably my favourite rom-com that i've seen, even if it is an anti-rom com.

It is kinda sad in a way, he hasn't learned anything, so his relationship with Autumn will just end the same way.

Part of me was worried that this was going to be a bit "gimmicky", and it kinda was in a way, but I'm such a big fan of the games that I didn't care Great soundtrack, great art, and....not-so-great voice acting on some parts. But all was good and I cried MANLY TEARS OF UNFATHOMABLE SADNESS.

Its not a spoiler, the first scene of the film tells you it's a sad ending.

Yeah, but you don't know there's light at the end of the tunnel with him finding someone new. At the start of the film he's a wreck.

When I first saw 500DOS I absolutely loved it, I still do. Just not as much.
It's not a chick flick, I dunno why people seem to think it is.
It IS a rom-com, but that doesn't necessarily mean chick flick.
See Manhattan and Annie Hall.
And High Fidelity for that matter, which is essentially a Annie Hall with musical references.

Last film I watched:



Yes, it's really dumb.
"Loom of fate"
"You're just a thug that can bend bullets."

Quite awful dialogue, but it's really fun and it has lots of great action sequences. Yes, it's style over substance. But I kind of like the style.
James McAvoy was great too, shame about Angelina.

It's definitley a chick-flick. Don't kid yourself to feel like a man.

I don't need to kid myself, to me there's a difference between a chick flick and a proper rom-com. Although they aren't mutually exclusive, chick flicks usually lack depth. (17 Again, She's The Man, 10 Things I Hate About You, John Tucker Must Die etc.)

Romantic Comedies (Annie Hall, The Apartment, Manhattan, Groundhog Day) to me have a lot more soul and aren't just popcorn flicks for idiot 14 year old girls.

I'd say 500 Days of Summer was more in the vein of the classic Romantic Comedy.
