''Your life is defined by its opportunities... even the ones you miss.''

Brad Pitt: Benjamin Button

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is nothing short of genius. A genius to be expected of a seasoned visionary director such as David Fincher. In the past ... read more

"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

“On a technical level this movie is amazing. David Fincher tries new boundaries and he succeeds. I haven't seen the making of yet, but people have told”

“On a technical level this movie is amazing. David Fincher tries new boundaries and he succeeds. I haven't seen the making of yet, but people have told me about some things, that they have seen and it sounds amazing.

Unfortunately I don't feel as "touched" by the complete story. It does have a strong beginning and the acting is great. But at the end it seems more like bits and parts and not as a whole movie experience. Of course that symbolizes our life as it is (also bits and pieces and many different chapters, with different characters in them). But although I do like this aspect, I feel there could've been more.

Maybe Mr. Fincher spoiled us with the movies he makes and I expected more. But whatever it is and although I do like the movie, I couldn't bear to give it mor” read more

Best Picture Nominees (in Ten Sentences) (478 movies items)

"The next film in David Fincher’s resume after "The Zodiac" is certainly a curious case indeed, one that proved to be the most commercially accessible yet controversial. Based on a short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald, "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" follows our titular character (Brad Pitt), who has a rare birth condition which causes him to age backwards. The film cycles through his adventures in being raised in an old folks home by Queenie (Taraji P. Henson) and Tizzy (Mahershala Ali), h"
