First off, I am a fan of David Fincher’s work. This film has his unique touch, such as the flashbacks being made to look like different era films. For example, the old guy that says he was struck by lightning seven times, every time they flashback, the clip is in the silent film era.
I thought that Brad Pitt was pretty awesome, going from an old man, to a young boy. And this movie will probably win best make-up.
There were plenty of unbelievable moments throughout the movie, but you really should just ignore them. The movie is about love and loss.
Unfortunately, I cannot ignore those kind of things. I liked the film, but there were things that bothered me. Daisy was in her 40s when she had her kid, which can happen, but was very dangerous for women back in the 60s. Also, if you noticed, the timing of Benjamin Button seems to be weird. There seemed to be no pace of how quickly his age was happening. If he was born like he was 80, did that mean every year he went one year backward? I know these things are trivial, but it seemed like it took forever for him to stop looking really old, but then he went quickly from a 40 year old man back to a 20 year old…
Anyways, it was a good movie, well directed. Probably will win some awards, but it was nothing that blew my mind.
