Such great interactions. I feel I was in the movie.
I think this one caught everyone's attention due to the fact that aging backward is a pretty fresh concept. Once hooked though we were kept holding on by amazing actors and an awesome story. I very much enjoyed this movie 9/10
Totally impossible premise, but a deeply satisfying film. For those of you who think it was too long, bull-pucky! You're probably the same sort of people who get upset when someone doesn't respond to your text within minutes. Life and living is about the journey, not the gratification won in an instant. If you want to enjoy a great story, find the time and watch this wonderful story about a life lived well and full.
Wow Loved it ! such a beautiful story and acting is so Great 9/10. Do watch this movie....
Loved this movie!! Thought it was a little long tho..
Long, lame and frankly quite boring, however i do admit that the quality of the cinematography is fine, but i tried just to make sure, to finish this, but never could... 2.10
also its not to long you just have to be someone who can pay attention i smoke cigarettes and i did not move once to smoke one lol
im not tryna dog anybody but you should know if a movie is slow if its not action related or by the preview. Anyone will tell you this is a collector for its genre you can watch this with the most stubborn in their own way older folk or the most brightest of the youth. 10/10
I tried to watch it some years back; I started and didn't finish. Personally, it was lethargically depressing and too long. Not sure if I will ever watch the rest.
Fantastic movie- it is a compelling watch. The sort of movie where you are comfortable just taking it in, soaking in the details, listening and waiting for a marvelous story to unfold. If you are searching for action, fast paced, constantly witty.. then it's not the moment to watch this movie. It might be considered slow by some but personally I found it interesting throughout. I thought Brad pitt did a wonderful job in this movie.

Wonderful movie. Although it did get a little slow at times 8/10

I will never ever get back the time I wasted watching this film. I admit the odd cute scene, but the parallels with Forest Gump are plainly annoying. Boredom at its self important best!
Boring, beige and long. disappointingly forrest gumpish movie from, what was, one of my favourite directors.
I can completely understand why some dismiss this movie as a Forrest Gump rip-off but that would be a shallow comparison at best. Written by the same man, yes. Extraordinary experiences around the world by the main character, yes. But interwoven throughout this movie is the utter sadness of a physically impossible love story (at least one that lasts the rest of one's life) and death's inevitablity (regardless of which direction you may be aging). Heartbreaking and beautiful and wore me out emotionally. But it was worth the almost three hours. Visually stunning down to the little details. Thank you David Fincher as usual.
I will never get the time or money I spent on this movie back. The premise of the movie wasn't bad but felt there was absolutely no chemistry between Brad Pitt and Kate Blanchett, it was way way WAY too long and beyond BORING!!!! I'm so irritated about it because we were so excited to see it with all the hype it got and felt completely ripped off in the end.
i found this movie to be actually way better than i expected. although i found at some times it was relatable to forrest gump, it was still a good film. this movie does get boring at some parts though
A beautiful film, chronicling the life of a character the audience will fall in love with. Everything about this movie is perfect. An amazing achievement.
This movie was pretty fantastic, and the great performances from the actors add to the movies greatness. Each scene was gripping and the special effects used on Bard Pitt were done very well. The only things that I didn't like was that it was too long that I would never watch again.
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is a American fantasy-drama film directed by David Fincher. The screenplay by Eric Roth and Robin Swicord is loosely based on the 1922 short story of the same name by F. Scott Fitzgerald. The film stars Brad Pitt as a man who ages in reverse and Cate Blanchett as the love interest throughout his life. The plot centers around Daisy (Cate Blanchett), an elderly woman, is on her deathbed in a New Orleans hospital as a hurricane, alluded indirectly to be Hurricane Katrina, approaches. Daisy tells her daughter, Caroline (Julia Ormond), the story of a blind clockmaker named Gateau who was commissioned to create a clock to hang in the New Orleans train station. After receiving news of his only son's death in World War I, he continued work on his clock, but intentionally designed it to run backward, in the hope that it would bring back those who died in the war. After her story, Daisy asks Caroline to read aloud from a diary containing photographs and postcards written by Benjamin Button (Brad Pitt).

On November 11, 1918, just as the people of New Orleans are celebrating the end of the Great War, a baby boy is born with the appearance and physical maladies of a very elderly man. The baby's mother dies shortly after giving birth, and the father, Thomas Button (Jason Flemyng), abandons the infant on the porch of a nursing home. Queenie (Taraji P. Henson) and Mr. "Tizzy" Weathers (Mahershalalhashbaz Ali), a couple who work at the nursing home, find the baby. Queenie, who is unable to conceive, decides to take the baby in as her own and names the baby Benjamin. Then from here on, it chronicles the life of Benjamin.

This movie was fantastic, and the great performances from the actors add to the movies greatness. Each scene was gripping and the special effects were done great. A beautiful film, chronicling the life of a character the audience will love. Everything about this movie is perfect. The film had alot of interesting characters which made the movie interesting at all times, and a very interesting story as well. The directing was great, but thats what I expected from David Fincher, I mean the guy is a great director if you look at his inpressive resume (i.e. Se7en,Panic Room, Fight Club, and Zodiac just to name a few.) But if your looking for a great movie thats interesting then I would recommand this film. Two very BIG Thumbs up for me!!!!!
Beautiful, Emotional, Satrical, Chilling. Are just a few words you could use to describe The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. People really need to see the beauty in this film. I cried at the end. Brad Pitt really shows that he can act. David Fincher has created an American Epic that is sure to become a classic. Alexandre Desplat conducted one of the most beautiful scores that I have ever heard.
