    Such a strange film for Fincher to do. Not his best, but still entertaining. Would've been cool if one characters timeline was told backwards and the other linear, so the happy ending would be the both of them at the same age. Oh well

    An interesting premise that was adapted from one of Fitzgerald's short stories. However, the 'world-building' was not consistent. He doesn't know how to walk until a good five years, but then forgets how to walk later at the end of his life. He is born as a baby with an elderly face but his body reverts back to being a baby.
    His age is also a question to be asked. I was disturbed at the idea that someone who looked…

    [Recommendation: If you enjoyed Predestination (2014) - I think they would make an interesting double feature]

    In deviation from his typical, psychological crime-centric thriller, Fincher explores a modern fairy tale through the lens of his characteristic omnipotent camera. Visually exquisite and meticulously composed, [...] Benjamin Button follows the idiosyncrasies of a man aging in reverse. Opening with a somewhat ham-fisted microcosm of the film's thematic overtones, Daisy recalls a clock maker building his magnum opus: a train station clock that…

    Tell me this movie isn't trying to be Forrest Gump (1994). Tell me.

    Pleasant little 7/10 movie. But lower your expectations if you're going into it as a FIncher fan.

    David Fincher’s The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is a winsome, epic fairy tale, a bittersweet romance, a fantastical voyage of discovery, and a sad tale of a rather extraordinary life. It’s also pure, unabashed Oscar-bait.

    At the end of World War I, Benjamin Button was born in New Orleans, Louisiana. His birth killed his mother and shocked his father (Jason Flemyng) because he was born looking like an old man in a newborn’s body. Benjamin’s father, unable to drown…

    "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" is a unique film. At certain points it drags. The performances are great. At one point in the film, there is a scene between Pitt and Blanchett in a dance studio that made me tear up majorly. This film is strangely beautiful, it really made me think about time and opportunities.

    There were some really weird directorial and story choices in this remake of The Jerk.

    How such a short novel can be spun out to nearly 3 hours is astonishing. However, the film is much better than the novel and includes some really interesting (de)aging of most of the cast. It takes a while to really get going and cuts back to the present too often, but other than that is a decent watch.
