500 Days of Summer or How is this what indie rom-coms look like now?

I am getting very excited about this movie, and I don't know why. The two stars have never really been my thing but the quirky premise and this teaser trailer have me enthralled. But I'm thinking this might just be a bit too emo, indie, Sundancey even for my own good.

In Maddow's words: talk me down!

Now THAT'S how you make a trailer. I don't think I had even heard of this until this very moment and now I want to rush out to see this movie and find out what that choreographed number is all about.

And JGL has never been your thing? Have you ever seen Mysterious Skin?

I have seen Mysterious Skin but for me he'll always be that kid from Third Rock from the Sun and Ten Things I Hate About You so I can't really say I've sought him out or anything, but this might just do it :)

Ah, I understand completely. I feel the same way about Shia LaBoeuf; to me, he'll always be Louis Steven.
