So I know that I said I was going to write book reviews, but I have been so busy that I haven't had time to finish a book all the way through! It's kind of sad, actually. I'm working on Emma by Jane Austen, Tamar by Mal Peet, Nobody's Perfect by Anthony Lane, and Push Not the River by James Conroyd Martin. I pinkie promise that when I get one of these completely finished, I'll write a book review.
In the meantime, I'll write a movie review about a movie that I waited months and months to watch (literally about six months), and I finally watched it today!
The movie was 500 Days of Summer, and I have been hyping it up in my head since I saw the first preview for it.
While the movie was really great - incredible actors (I love Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel), witty and engaging script, and brilliant sets that really complete the whole story - it was a little bittersweet.
I'm not going to give anything away because I really hate that when people give away things for me. I will say this, though. The narrator warns you right in the beginning that the movie is "not a love story." If you've watched the movie, what did you think? Be careful what you post in a comment, though - no spoilers!
The best thing about this movie, though, was the soundtrack. The music was so amazing. In fact, the new music that you hear right now if you're reading this is made up entirely of songs from the movie. What do you think? I love it.
To those of you who liked my other playlist better - no worries. It will be back. This is just temporary, I think.
