The Curious Case of Benjamin Button  

3 Review

"The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" is a short story written by F. Scott Fitzgerald and first published in Colliers Magazine during 1921. It subsequently was anthologized in his book, Tales of the Jazz Age, which occasionally is published as The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Other Jazz Age Stories. Development rights to the story were held for years by the late Hollywood mogul, Ray Stark. He retained those rights until his death, when they were purchased from his estate and used for an adaption of the story as the 2008 film of the same name, which was directed by David Fincher.

I've been waiting for a free time to be able to write a review of the movie curious case of Benjamin Button. and now is the time.

For me it is a very touching story. i find some of the parts boring though...this film is quite a long one. it's so long that sometimes you find yourself hard to breath =P

There are so many meaningful quotes,that might help you to go on with our life positively. here's some quotes i get from imdb

Benjamin Button: Your life is defined by its opportunities... even the ones you miss.

Benjamin Button: It's a funny thing about comin' home. Looks the same, smells the same, feels the same. You'll realize what's changed is you.

Benjamin Button: [Voice over; letter to his daughter] For what it's worth: it's never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There's no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you're proud of. If you find that you're not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.

Mrs. Maple: Benjamin, we're meant to lose the people we love. How else would we know how important they are to us?

Captain Mike: You can be as mad as a mad dog at the way things went. You could swear, curse the fates, but when it comes to the end, you have to let go.

Queenie: You never know what's comin' for ya.

Benjamin Button: Our lives are defined by opportunities, even the ones we miss.

Queenie: Everyone feels different about themselves one way or another, but we all goin' the same way.

Daisy: I promise you, I'll never lose myself to self-pity again.
Benjamin Button: [while the day begins] And I think, right there and then, she realized none of us is perfect forever.

Daisy: We all end up in diapers.

That is it. the quote i find meaningful in the movie.
Benjamin was born in a special occasion. he was born old. and as days/years passes by, he find himself getting younger. different from other people. And that's why i pity him. He thought that he's an old man when he was still a "child". He stays with them, never go out. for what his momma say that outside is dangerous. Who would have know that he became a sailor and go around places??

It is fate. his father abandon him. yet another great momma is there to pick him up. or else he won't even find someone to raise him.

i see much similarity between an old man and a young kid. both old people and young kid needs care. and that's why benjamin leave Daisy- his love one when they got their first child. he think that it could be A burden for daisy to take care of two kids(he's growing younger).

i'd like to take a little time to talk about the make-up and costume. 5 stars. it's excellent. Brad Pitt is playing a role from 10-100 years of age. and the make-up seems real. Hardly even recognize him when he's in a old man look.

i guess there's not much to mention for this movie. If you want to know more you should watch it. it's more like life and love story. which, can make you laugh a little, and cry a little. Appreciate life. you don't know what comes next =)
