So this is a list movies that I have seen in recent history that made me say WTF for one reason or another, which I will explain. Except for one of these movies, I am still not sure how I feel about them. I don't think I hate them but I'm not sure I like them, either. This may require a second viewing.
500 Days of Summer
Okay, so Pago told me that this movie was not some corny ass romantic movie, which it wasn't. However, I'm not sure what it was otherwise. The tagline for the movie says it's a movie about love, which just sounds bad. I kind of think it was more about relationships. I also kind of think that it was the kind of movie that dudes and chicks can watch together without one of them feeling like they got gypped. Other than that, I am not sure if I liked it or not. I do love Zooey Deschanel, I think she's super hot as I've mentioned in this blog before. I also love love love Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Manz calls him my other manz aka my movie boyfriend. Maybe what it is, is that I actually secretly liked the movie but am mad that I did and so I'm trying to hate on it? I don't know.
Alice in Wonderland
Okay, I was all mad at first for like the first 2/3 of the movie because this was NOT any of the Alice stories. It was not Alice in Wonderland. It was not Through the Looking Glass. So what the fuck was it? I had a hard time dealing with this issue until I realized "Okay, it's just Tim Burton's version of an Alice story" and then I felt better about it after that. I will say that I did kind of like how he ended up making Alice sort of a strong female character who handled her own business.
Now this movie is one of those movies that WILL have you saying WTF, because seriously, you're like "What the fuck is going ON up in here?" It's another one of those twisty sort of mindfuck kind of movies, but the way the story was told and the way the movie ended make the movie probably one of the best movies I've seen. This one is a definite must see.
