    I love how this thread is no longer about the tie, but is now about Zoey

    Totally... because you know Carlyne Yi is a better "indie girl" [​IMG]

    I loved the movie and I thought he was dressed pretty well personally.

    I didn't love the movie (though the latter half was better), but I thought he was dressed well.

    Zooey Deschanel needs to play against type soon to remain interesting as an actress. She's wearing out the quirky indie girl schtick (even if it comes naturally to her).

    I have a very, very similar tie, slim, and I purchased it at Macy's. I have a similar fit Diesel cardigan, got it clearance for $30. You might want to check it out.

    I agree with only the second part of this post (because I loved the entire movie). Soon she'll be typecasted just as Michael Cera is as the awkward quirky kid.

    I haven't seen the movie but I don't want to, because the previews so badly turn me off.

    good news, she's single now! *sarcasm* I didnt think Leavitt's outfits were anything special, but he looked like how his character would actually look (in terms of music interest + age + whatever other bullshit I'm selling here). The movie was great, we're gonna see it again next week which is the first film of 2009 I will have made an effort to see a second time

    I'm surprised to read excellent reviews. Must be better than the previews make it out to be. Of course, I got suckered in by good reviews to see Juno, too. Is it better than Juno?

    most movies have all the best scenes in the previews and it ends up sucking.

    500 Days doesnt have a great preview but the movie is great, really well done and written

    Much better than Juno, which was ok, but Diablo Cody writing Juno's character made it annoying and just way too self aware for a 16 year old.

    This. I really enjoyed (500) Days of Summer. It had a lot less of the pretentious-indie-ness than you would expect.

    I didn't find it to be pretentious, just that it had too obvious markers of indie-ness. They both like The Smiths! He has the cover of Psychocandy on his bedroom wall in junior high! She has a Belle and Sebastian quote in her high school yearbook! They bond over mutual appreciation for the Knight Rider theme at a karaoke night!

    I don't see referencing those bands as a sign of "indie filmmaking". I'd surmise that whoever wrote the script based it on something that happened to him and those bands were probably a part of his life so he put all that into the story. God forbid you ever reference JATMC in a film and get painted with the indie-brush.
