The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

Aoife and I watched this movie over the weekend. It is well worth a watch. I am not going to say much about it as I dont want to spoil things for anyone. A couple of points..

1: If you are a cryer (Like me) bring tissues.
2: Brad Pitt is awesome sauce and now on my list of men I would shag if I had to.
3: Cate Blanchett is awesome too.
4: The movie really gets the brain working (in a good way)
5: Not one to watch alone

On another note....I watched Atonement for the first time recently. It was one of those movies that I was a bit "Meh, sometime maybe" about. It is fantastic. The long shot on the beach at the end of the war is an amazing bit of camera work. Seamless.

Happy 04.02.09!! Hope you all have great days..



  1. You and I are on totally different wavelengths here.

    I thought Ben Button was an incredibly well directed remake for Forrest Gump.

    The only thing I liked about Atonement was the score, and that one beach shot.

  2. I enjoyed the movie but Brad Pitt is a horrible actor and it the similarities to Forrest Gump are very obvious.

  3. A fellow liker of the film, I thought it was fantastic, I didn't cry, but then again I'm a man ! ;)

    Nice blog btw :)
