The next movie up on my list is Benjamin Button. Its a fantasy tale about a man aging backwards in the 1900s. A great story premise, however maybe tedious at times. The special effects were better than I had anticipated, integrating star Brad Pitt's face into each of Benjamin's ages instead of using separate actors as I was expecting. The film doesn't exactly speed up at any point, as one would think it would. Many pros and cons to this film, and certainty not one of the best films ever made but as far as adequate storytelling- this movie does the job.
This movie has a general theme of aging. How do you feel about growing old? I know it sounds like a lame question, but bear with me. I didn't particularly have many things to say about this film.
