I was looking for something to write about. I had no idea what I wanted to rant about and piss you kids off with. So I logged onto my Tumblr for the first time in weeks and started looking at all the photos my friends had posted on it.
I found this picture. This is a scene from the movie 500 Days of Summer. I think this may be my most hated movie and the sad part is that I don't even hate it for the plot or story. I thought the movie was done excellently. I hate the movie because of Summer... Zooey Deschanel's character.
Her character may have been the Anti-Christ incarnate. From the minute she appeared on the screen, I knew that poor/pathetic Joseph Gordan-Levitt's character was doomed. He was destined for misery with this girl's CHOSEN indecisiveness.
Now I say chosen because she obviously didn't love him but was just comfortable with his presence and affection. In essence, she was using him. He loved her and she didn't love him. It's as simple as that. She should have cut it off before it got any worse. But nope, her lack of self esteem and poor opinion of herself needed that constant pick-me-up until she just couldn't stand the guy anymore.
In my opinion... this is the definition of a selfish bitch. But call her what you want. I felt so bad for the guy and I empathized and even could relate to the depressed schmuck.
Even in this picture you can see it. She knew what she was doing from the very beginning. Do people (boys and girls for you female readers who hate me!) have such terrible confidence issues these days that they need a person / parasite for their life to make everything better? This goes for Joseph Gordan-Levitt's character as well. He fell head over heals in love with this girl and got screwed because he thought that she would just heal the sick and resurrect the dead in his life. Wrong!
Both of these characters pissed me off severely. Mostly her because I still do not understand the female enigma, but him as well for his lack of guard and control. Maybe it was because I completely related to him at one point and saw myself.
I do know a lot of people who do this though. They stay in relationships that are unbalanced just to make their lives feel a little better, even though they know that something is wrong. People once again need to vocalize and use their mouths / brains.What do you think of this movie and it's portrait of terrible relationships?
