500 days of summer vs paper heart

Since I have been home I have spent most of my time catching up on the movies I have been wanting to see since the summer time. I finally got to see 500 days of summer and paper heart, two movies that I need for my inner indie love story fix. Since they both kinda are about the same thing Love and if it is real and true love, all that crap I thought I would do a quick review of the two!

I was really excited to see 500 days of summer! I think mostly because I find Joseph Gordon-Levitt attractive and I like Zooey Deschanel. So I figured two attractive and cute people could make a cute love story. But I should have known in the first 5 minutes when they said this wasn't a love story that I was gonna get disappointed. The film had some cute moments but a majority of it was this kid losing it over this girl that said straight up she wasn't looking for a boyfriend. So Of coarse he got played and was mad and confused for the other half of the movie. And I was like why is she messing with his head, hes obviously feeling you and hes a shawty! But in end she got married out of now where to some other guy, snap sorry for the spoiler. All that the movie taught me was that sometimes you have to stay with someone you kinda like until you find someone you love. Thanks 500 days of summer, for nothing.

Ahhh yes and now Paper heart. A documentary I guess about a documentary, not completely sure. But Charlyne Yi who doesn't believe in love, goes around the country with her crew asking the question what is love and does it exist. Of coarse along the way she meets Michael Cera and she does kinda fall in love. Its really cute, like so cute my heart wanted to blow up. Charlyne Yi and Michael Cera are so awkward yet adorable and it was cool watching her travel around the country and meeting all the different people along the way. Also the end, that wasn't really an ending was clever.

So I give it toooooo, PAPER HEART for furfilling my indie love story movie fix. Ef you 500 days of summer, but Joseph Gordon-Levitt you are still a shawty!

My next movie to watch is district 9, way different vibe, its probably gonna scare the crap out of me.
