The curiously long case of Benjamin Button

I didn’t see the Oscar Ceremony because I was at the movies last night. I saw “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”. Pretty good, I’d say. I give it about three stars, if anyone asks me. Good plot, interesting idea, well done special effects, a little too long (was it because of that clock running backwards, I wonder?). I liked it and I’ll file it under the I’D NEVER SEE IT AGAIN BUT IT IS WORTH SEEING IT cathegory. Now, I also understand the parallel between Button and mister Forest Gump from the movie of the same name.

Note: I stole the title from my husband’s blog, because I liked it. He also thinks that the sequel will be “Benjamin Button 3″ as the first … two happened last night.

    That movie was definitely longer than it needed to be; the pace of it was just slow, and I’m not sure every scene was necessary to tell the story. I really did enjoy the scenes in Russia, though, and thought all of that was handled well. I really liked the ‘it was nice to have met you note’.

    It was long, but not in an annoying way. It was long in a “I’d love to watch more but I can’t feel my bottom anymore” way.
