No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Shouldn't he have pulled a chest burster then in the book?

My understanding is in the book/short story the mother did not survive the birth possibly due to well she the baby grew to an old man inside her.

In the short story the mother is alive and it never questions it.
No way dude, you're trolling me.

Saw this yesterday and it was possibly one of the most boring films I've ever seen. Its basically just Forrest Gump without the charm, excitement and historical significance.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Thats pretty much exactly how my cousin sumed it up when explaining his thoughts of the movie to me.

This movie was indeed really boring. But I didn't have a choice tbh.



A friend of mine changed the title to 'The Boring Snorefest of Benjamin Button' and it fits.

I'd have called it An Acute Case of Boredom and Brown Sets.

Seriously, every freaking scene was sepia :P

Probably to make it look old, considering it happened in the past.
