Okay, so I crossed another movie off my list: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. This one was all I expected it to be and then some. Beautifully told, well written, a classic. Now it was almost as long as the Titanic, but it was worth it. All the actors involved did an exceptional job, especially when you consider that they all did quite a bit of aging (and un-aging) in their roles. For some reason I was under the impression that Taraji P. Henson had a much smaller role, but I was glad to see her on the srceen for as long as possible. Bravo! Cate Blanchett was exceptional as well. And while I don’t want to take away anything from Brad Pitt as an actor, did I mention that he is about as handsome as they come? I might have to include him in the next chocolate break…What, you never heard of white chocolate?
This is a must see. I didn’t cry, but this movie definitely gave me a lot to pause and ponder, and depending on your mood, you just might need some kleenex.
Okay so let’s recap: that is one classic, one make you smile and cry movie (with a dog that should win an Oscar), and one weird (what should I be feeling now) movie. Comedy, anyone?
