Movie Review by Steven
June 13th, 2009

I find talking about "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" quite difficult. Not because it was a bad movie or poorly acted, but because I find the premise really unfulfilling. If someone created a wazy for time to reverse than that means that everyone would age in reverse, so how come only Benjamin Button is the only one who ages in reverse. (This is the first of 2 problems I had). The film was well acted and nicely shot (David Fincher has a great visual eye).

Maybe I just didn't understand the story. And my second biggest problem was that it was too long. It seemed there was too much going on and nothing truly didn't add up. For example, I think the scenes when he was with Tilda Swinton (and I like her alot) were wasted and had no real point. But what do I know. It wasn't a horrible movie, but it wasn't one to rave about either. Again, maybe I just didn't understand the story. And don't even get me started how they seamlessly added Huriicane Katrina into the plot. (I can't explain that one.)
