Profile of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

The mood of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is bittersweet, atmospheric, and sentimental. The plot centers around aging, misfits, and imaginary themes. It is a drama, romance, and fantasy movie. Stylistically, it is epic, has a Hollywood tone, and includes a voice over. In approach, it is serious. The pacing is slow. It is set in New Orleans. It happens in the 1920s, in the 1930s, and in the 1950s. It is derived from a short story. It is known for being original, an Oscar winner, and a blockbuster. It is especially suggested for a date night. Note that it includes profanity.

Newsweek
Lyrical, original, misshapen and deeply felt, this is one flawed beauty of a movie.

At runtime of almost 3 hours you would hope for some epic story with well developed characters, and yet this film fails to provide any of that. Interesting undeveloped idea with some incredibly cheesy scenes (hummingbirds?). Film looks the best way...

Beautiful
I loved it, the almost 3 hours went without me even noticing. However it is not for everyone. I still have to say that it's absolutely beautiful. Amazing casting and the acting was superb.

Ok but way too long
This movie was originally based on the short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald and turned into a way too long movie. The general story idea is very interesting though. It shows the life of Benjamin Button (Brad Pitt) as he ages backwards. I definitely...

An odd movie but worth a look. Brad Pitt is really good as usual assuming that's actually him in the movie & not pure CG. Either way the aging effects are some of the best I've seen. A cool story well executed.

I watched this movie knowing only that Brad Pitt, played a character that is born old and gets young as the years go by. And also that Cate Blanchett was the love interest in the movie. That being said I was pleasantly surprised to see that Tilda...

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is the worst high production value movie I have ever wasted my time watching. In fact, I'm convinced that with less money, a much better movie could have been produced. For example, there is simply not 166 minutes...

For 45 minutes in the second act, director David Fincher forced it upon the audience to know that Benjamin Button (Brad Pitt) and Daisy (Cait Blanchett) love each other. I gathered that the three instances where it was stated "I loved her the minute...

Avoid at all costs!
An absolutely criminal waste of the talents of anyone involved in this movie. Avoid at all costs. It desperately tries to extract the sentimentality of Forrest Gump and transplant it to a movie where the viewer will find themsleves helplessly...

After first watching the trailer for this film, I certainly had lofty expectations. After watching the film, I realize that it didn't meet my expectations fully, but close enough. Benjamin Button (Brad Pitt) is born with the physical characteristics...

Much better than expected, "THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON" boasts a compelling story. It's main feat, however, is its originality -- the story's hero is born an old man who gets younger as he ages. It's doubtful that there'll be spate of...

I was intrigued by this film just from the trailer, but because of the hype that it was one of the best films of 2008, I went to the theater with low expectations. I was hooked from the beginning of the film until the end of the film and I didnÂ’t...

The story of a man growing young - and the love in his life. That's really what it should have stuck to to be honest, but instead it tries for greater things and instead gets a bit lost. In the end, I did like this movie and it did pull at my heart...

This best picture nominee is definitely 2008's There Will Be Blood: ostentatious cinematography and platitudinous dialogue designed to distract the viewer from what is deep-down a rather banal and soulless story. It's essentially Forrest Gump...

David Fincher is another one of my directors and Benjamin Button is a departure from his usual work which is rather kinetic and stylish. One could almost see his previous feature Zodiac as being a stepping stone toward this film. This is not to...
