The Curious Case of Benjamin Button - January 6th 2009, 04:38 PM

Has anyone seen the movie "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button"? And if so, what did you think of it?

I thought the concept of the movie was interesting. I also thought it was long. Really long. (it's almost 3 hours long)

I saw it! I agree, a tad long...but the story line was definitely something we haven't seen before. I enjoyed it. Whilst watching the film, my sister kept laughing and whispering in my ear, "How is he a newborn? Wouldn't he become some giant/grotesque man baby in he end?" Lol who knows, but I'd be interested in reading the book. I'm curious though, would any of you prefer to grow younger?

Three hours long?! Did I hear right?! Oh my gosh. I really want [or should I say wanted!] to see this film. I saw the advert for it and I thought it looked really good, but I don't know whether I could sit through all of that! I might have to wait until it comes out on DVD xD

I just loved the line 'what does it feel like, growing younger?' 'I don't know, I'm just seeing it through my eyes'. I don't know whether they were the exact words, but I thought it was an interesting reply.

The movie was pretty long, but I absolutely loved it. I had already read the story it was inspired by, which prepared me for the ending of the film (it was so sad). I thought it was a GREAT movie, and I highly recommend seeing it and reading the story of the same name (the only similarity between the story and the film is really the whole concept of aging "backwards" and the ending, sort of). I'm pretty sure the story was based on a quote that someone said- something about how the best part of life comes at the beginning, and the worst at the end?

Loved, loved, loved this movie! So beautifully done! My favourite of 08 for sure...

Would have been more symbolic if the hurricane was shown going anti-clockwise to go with the theme of the film. The setting would have been of more significance then.
