"My name is Benjamin Button, and I was born under unusual circumstances."

Throughout its undeniably lengthy 160 minutes, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is a captivating, heartfelt, jubilant and melancholy experience - beautiful to observe and overflowing with a sense of marvel and wonder. Based on F. Scott Fitzgerald's short story, this strange, ambitious saga of a man who ages... read more

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button isn't too much of a curiosity. It's the same old period drama that's been told on film dozens of times. Let us recap, shall we? Boy is born, boy is abandoned by family, boy grows up with foster parents, boy meets girl, boy goes off to see the world, boy comes back to find girl, girl initially rejects boy, girl finally comes to find the boy and they live happily... read more

Description: “I was born under unusual circumstances.” And so begins “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” adapted from the 1920s story by F. Scott Fitzgerald about a man who is born in his eighties and ages backwards: A man, like any of us, who is unable to stop time. We follow his story set in New Orleans from the end of World War I in 1918, into the 21st century, following his journey that is as unusual as any man’s life can be. Directed by David Fincher and starring Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett with Taraji P. Henson, Tilda Swinton, Jason Flemyng, Elias Koteas and Julia Ormond, “Benjamin Button,” is a grand tale of a not so ... (more)

Movie Reviews (601-650) (50 movies items)

" A good gimmick idea about a person born into the world as an old man and living life in opposite direction to other people. Brad Pitt is not that half-bad as the old Benjamin Button and manage to sell the old man's make-up too. It is manipulative enough that it actually twist a few tears of me at the end, but it doesn't break any new ground as a typical romantic drama and doesn't it feel a tiny bit disturbing during the old man/small girl situations for comfort?"

Best Quotes from the Movies (47 movies items)

""Your life is defined by its opportunities... even the ones you miss." - Benjamin Button "For what it's worth: it's never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There's no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a diffe"

"Years: 1918-2005 Locations (in the 1940s): Murmansk (Russia), New Orleans, New York This movie has a very large time span. I could put it as well in many other of my historical movie lists. The 1940s are one of the most important periods here. It's the middle part of the movie lasting appr. 50 minutes."
