Curious Case of Benjamin Button
« on: December 26, 2008, 04:50:47 pm »
I got to see this last night. Overall, I thought it was pretty good. It was interesting, although a lot of elements were reminiscent of Forest Gump. Also, the love story seemed a bit forced. Other than than, it was really a fun movie. Anyone else see it?

From what I saw of the trailer when he was born he was an old man but baby sized does that mean when he is on his death bed he looks like an adult sized baby?

Old.

How does he die? Does he turn into a fetus?
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Wouldn't that mean he'll eventually split into a sperm cell and an egg cell?

How devastated would you be if you gave birth to a wrinkly old man.

My cousin saw this last night and said it was horrid nothing every happens in the film the book sounds like it was better as it seems like it was designed to be a slightly absurd comedy. Also in the book Bens mum dies during childbirth and who could blame her in the book she gave birth a 5'10, 80 year old man. Like I said absurd comedy.
