Movie Quotes: "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button"

My name is Benjamin Button, and I was born under unusual circumstances. While everyone else was aging, I was gettin' younger... all alone.

I have never watched the 2008 Hollywood movie "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" on the big screen, that's why I rented a DVD to watch it at our home theater (okay, maybe not a home theater, per se, but a DVD player with a super surround sound and an amplifier to enhance the movie sound quality... hehehe). Anyway, the movie stars Hollywood actor Brad Pitt in one of his brilliant performances to date. He plays the character Benjamin Button who was born with a rare disease that lets him grow younger as he age. He acts so believably incredible, his "old-age" teenager persona reminds me of the old-age John Nash played by Russell Crowe in the movie, "A Beautiful Mind" but something's telling me that the old-age teenage persona is played by young actor Spencer Daniels... hmmm.. I really have no idea. Moving on, this movie also stars Hollywood actress, Cate Blanchett who plays as Daisy, Benjamin's should-have-been wife in the film.

If you love sitting in front of a big screen for so long, then this movie is for you. Yes, the movie "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button's" screening time is quite long. But despite of this, I really enjoyed the film because it felt like I was watching the different life stages of a man who grows younger as he age. So, I think, every scene was really significant. Even though the movie took me about two and half hours to watch the entirety of the film, I can say that the movie gave me interest to watch it simply because I love science fiction! Hehehe...
