(500) days of summer combines the happy and sad moments of a relationship by cutting back and forth between the present and past. it is incredibly funny, sad and true all at once. protagonist tom is so sweet and so hung up on summer but she doesn't seem forthcoming. all is revealed as the 500 days draw to a close...

if only i could say something more constructive than 'i want to look like zooey deschanel'...
for this, i'll just choose a film i've seen at the cinema either recently (this year, i mean) or one that i've rewatched recently. (y)

cinematters: night at the museum 2: battle of the smithsonian

i haven't seen night at the museum 1 so, to be honest, apart from comedy, i wasn't sure what to expect. it was rather good (i really like the concept), i had to say, though it was a little slow at first - though i think, as i hadn't seen the first, that was more me trying to put 2 and 2 together. ben stiller's good (i think the last film i saw him in was bedtime stories..?), as was amy adams as amelia earheart, whose hair i want (/vanity). the film definitely got better towards the end and i really enjoyed all the special effects! nice touches of history. the monkeys were adorable. perhaps i should get stuck in a museum now.

i think i'll give it 7/10. what does everyone else think? (though i'm not entirely sure why i am saying this, because no-one will give their opinion ;) )
