Dimitri McDowell & Leah Smith (@TripLee @ReachRecords) About The Author William Frantz 99 Comments Poisoned Lava Garden State was given to me at the age it was supposed to given to me and I was just overwhelmed by the message of 'don't take your meds' and the shallowness of Natalie Portman's characterization…. I think that was always just a bad movie. 500 days however, still has some salvageable elements at any age imo October 7, 2019 Reply The ABC Jug Band I think this is why Lucas changed elements of Star Wars. I’m guessing as he got older he regretted Han shooting first. I’m guessing that’s why the prequels have so much dialogue about politics and people. I think as he’s aged he wants to leave a positive influence in his legacy and not just a technical one. October 10, 2019 Reply G Listianto 10 years.

October 10, 2019 Reply TheCompleteGuitarist <<This dudes really not a very good actor>> my mouse is hovering over the SUBSCRIBED button October 10, 2019 Reply seyhan köseoğlu I was also 16 when i was the movie first time, the first time being 4 days ago. My friend who knows i have more free time then her told me to watch it before she does so i can tell her if its worth watching at all. Im thankfull for her laziness (?) because if it wasn't for her i'd have never seen this movie! This movie amazed me so much that i watched it multiple times in a 48 hour period. As i've mentioned before im 16 and i (want and like to) call myself a filmmaker, but i haven't made anything for a long time now. This movie revived my passion for filmmaking and encouraged me to start making shit again, anything. Hopefully, 10 years later, i can look back at this movie and say "this right here is my milestone" October 10, 2019 Reply Jesse Yules Film It's impressive that the directors of these movies are able to capture those youthful emotions effectively, even though they've probably outgrown them as well. October 11, 2019 Reply ɴᴇᴋᴏ ᴄʜᴀɴ I think Toy Story is the kind of movie that you've outgrown to in a really painful way October 11, 2019 Reply Mark Evans Rewatched this recently and was struck with the feeling that the film tried way too hard and on second viewing fell flat on its face. Didn't age well at all. But it did have a cool soundtrack. But the sort of soundtrack made by hipsters that would have been unrealistic at the time. The "hip" bands were virtually unknown before becoming mainstream. Hipsters weave them into films like this to raise the level of coolness — but it's pretty revisionistic.I used to watch the Smiths at smaller gigs in South East England before they broke through and became soundtrack fodder.

As I grew up, my perception of the story and characters change. I keep seeing a different view of the same movie. When I was young, i felt for Tom. The older I got, the more I understood Summer. And the more I understood that they were just bad for each other. October 15, 2019 Reply Aditya Pathania I too saw it when I was 17 and it had a huge impact upon me. I still remember it for cool soundtrack and beautiful cinematography. Although now i see that there are some flaws, i could never hate it due to nostalgia, and the place i was emotionally at 17. Also i had a crush on Zooey after this. Hope people see this movie for what it is, including its flaws. Still a great time.

PS ya made me cry with this one, thanks bud haha November 1, 2019 Reply diulikadikaday (500)DoS is an amazing work of art. Its a movie that has grown with its viewers. So many of us watched the movie and felt like it both described and glorified our frustrated, beautiful confusion. Like a sense of refreshment in a cold, dark rain. We identified with Tom and wondered why "good guys" like us and Tom seemed to finish last. In the 10 years since, I broke up with my manic pixie dream girl. It sounds stupid, but it really hurt…because we were never really a couple! But I felt like she owed me for those magical moments we shared. And I resented her and became bitter and misogynistic. I felt like girls were bitches and didn't know how to accept a gentleman like me. But thank God I found a way out of that self-entitled world. I purposely stayed single for 2 years (I know what you're thinking…"purposely"?). But it gave me a lot of time to reflect and realised I was a fuckboy. I somehow found a wonderful wife (our wedding song was "You make my dreams come true" from the (500)DoS soundtrack). We now have a 4 year old son and life is content. I now watch (500)DoS like that "expectation" vs "reality" scene. Its like I'm watching a different movie. I laugh in parts, feel sad in others and even cringe a little bit. Yeah, this movie has grown with us viewers, but like going back to our home town for the holidays, I'm glad we outgrew that.

What did Summer ever do to you? xD November 19, 2019 Reply Rogue Video 500 Days of Summer came out when I was 22 and it similarly hit me the perfect time in life. Maybe because of our different life paths or that I'm just now in my first long-term relationship but at 33, I still really love this movie after rewatching and still relate to it quite a bit.

A movie, that is suggested by other, starts off with me in good impressions. After watching the movie, the chances are, I will ALSO find it good. The downside to this is that I'm now a carrier of this outgrown rekindling or remembering of what others liked. All of a sudden, people will find you as if you are a manifestation of something they've outgrown. November 28, 2019 Reply Master Like most people have mentioned, the movie is good/great, it's just that you should understand what it's portraying.

It was my story, and the story of many men. And every time I've watched it over the years, with new eyes, I watch a new story. Everytime though, it's a beautiful story, of a man letting go of childish fantasies and embracing life, as it is, rather than how we wish it.

December 20, 2019 Reply Robert Bain Loved this commentary. More please December 20, 2019 Reply Messofanego I think it's also worth rewatching if you hated Summer the first time around, not realising she's well-written and reasonable while Tom is disappointed that the symbol of her and the pedestal gets knocked over. He has an unhealthy view of women that manic pixie girls will save nerds like him and the film is aware of that. Now that I'm married, I'm curious whether my wife will respond as well to the soundtrack and creative filmmaking or just bounce off Tom being kind of a dick. December 23, 2019 Reply Amelia I never really liked 500 days of summer. Probably because I was around 12 when I first saw it, and I thought the title itself, along with Tom, were pretentious as hell(even though I had never heard the word pretentious before). The movie just struck me as too childish of a movie, although looking at it now, guys might relate heavily to it. It’s probably because I’m a girl, so I knew what Tom was doing was idealizing that girl too much.

January 12, 2020 Reply roberthor This was good January 14, 2020 Reply jane doe You only outgrow this if you find a way to get past the ennui associated with the strong desire of love as a necessity to a great life. I still adore High Fidelity, (500) Days, and most everything that holds the future as magical when you find yourself. There are so many people that never find themselves, or just do not have the skills or mental health to accomplish anything of note. Being poor also makes you search for something wonderful in others. I want to be a great partner, so in ways I want to be the "manic pixie dream girl." My empathy, kindness, and love is all that I am when you cannot write a great book, direct a film, or be an architect. I watch this movie and see it as the blueprint still. I see those red flags and know I wouldn't be able to avoid them because I am like the characters that avoid reality. Outgrowing is something that is real, but so is nostalgia and the feeling that the past is safe. I love this film and I don't know if it is because I cannot outgrow it, or that I feel like there isn't a future where I can be independent. January 15, 2020 Reply zimzimzalabim hmm I don't know, I don't need to deconstruct a movie I fell in love with years ago, based on my current views as an older person (41 yo). I leave my current world views, overall jadedness and prejudices aside, and I try to go back to where I was when I first saw it, and it works for me. That's why I still love Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist and 500 days of Summer equally. Both take me back to where I was and the soundtracks are still amazing for both. Same goes for Breakfast Club, 16 Candles, Say Anything, Empire Records or Reality Bites, to name a few. January 17, 2020 Reply Killing Joke 2009 was a good year.

Maybe when I turn 30 January 24, 2020 Reply matthew shit video January 26, 2020 Reply Vanessa Crooks The thing about this movie that I feel you missed, the essence of it that you seem to get wrong (and you can't possibly outgrow it if you get it right) is the fact that it destroys the trope of the manic pixie dream girl and takes down the twenty-something existential ennui hippie sad boy. The great, timeless charm of (500) Days of Summer is the fact that you probably need to watch it twice, because due to everything that we've been taught and shown constantly about romantic comedies such as High Fidelity and Garden State is that no matter how quirky he is, the guy gets the girl, and so the first time we watch 500 we side with Tom, and then the second time we realize that he's an unreliable narrator who idealized Summer and who had a very specific romantic story playing out in his head. This is also why Ruby Sparks, which is so much more cheesy and fantastic and yet equally charming and great, nails it. Both Ruby and 500 point out the flawed narrative about women, the way that they're constantly portrayed as the romantic interest and nothing else. If you outgrow that, you've learned nothing.
