So it's 500 Days of Summer but in Summer's POV
Initially, I gave this a 1-star review because of some stuff I feel Marvel didn't give us and should have. Part of my initial impression was how the trailer kinda set us up for disappointment. Part of it was also how this movie just followed the most amazing Spider-Man movie yet.
Also, there's this genre element that's a bit ... overdone? badly done? Yes, I get it. We're exploring genres now.
But then one commentor on Letterboxd (yes, you) asked…
This movie DESTROYED me.
It somehow reminded me of a quote from Call Me by Your Name:
"If there is pain, nurse it. And if there is a flame, don’t snuff it out. Don’t be brutal with it. We rip out so much of ourselves to be cured of things faster, that we go bankrupt by the age of thirty and have less to offer each time we start with someone new."
The truth is: we place too much value…
