    Default "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" (2008)



    "The film quickly outgrows any sense of gimmickry and matures into a one-of-a-kind meditation on mortality, time's inexorable passage and the fleeting sweetness of love."

    I really enjoyed this movie and found it very thought provoking. It strikes me as a metaphor for a lot of things... how greater wisdoms come across us, recovering their childlike naiveness and eventually passing, while we grow old and discover our own. nothing lasts, happiness is finding the perspective to appreciate something before it's gone.


    if you're looking for a solid, well-acted movie to light your imagination and you dont mind the 2.5+ hour playtime, id highly recommend this movie. 4.5 out of 5.

    This was a wonderful movie, and probably the best of 2008.

    It was completely forgettable. I would almost rather hate it because then I would feel something.

    There was a lot of imagery and symbolism in it. I was hungry for more!!!

    So much about the human condition and that unforgettable quote:

    "Our lives are defined by opportunity, even the ones we miss."

    Come on, didn't your mind and soul just go wild with that?

    It was nice but I was shocked to see him end as a normal-sized baby.

    I'm excited to see this movie but I will be very, very surprised if it surpasses Slumdog Millionaire as best movie of '08 for me.
