There are so much stuffs I wanted to blog about but never got the chance or time to blog them out. Things like the Mayday concert, the gong de rituals, CNY and everything. However, I gotta blog about the movie I watched yesterday night. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
"I was born under unusual circumstances." And so begins "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," adapted from the 1920s story by F. Scott Fitzgerald about a man who is born in his eighties and ages backwards. A man, like any of us, who is unable to stop time. We follow his story set in New Orleans from the end of World War I in 1918, into the 21st century, following his journey that is as unusual as any man's life can be - a grand tale of a not-so-ordinary man and the people and places he discovers along the way, the loves he finds, the joys of life and the sadness of death, and what lasts beyond time.
Once you watched that, I guess you will understand why it got nominated for so many awards in Oscar. It might be a little slow-paced and a little too long (3 hours).But if you keep on watching,I'm sure you will find the plot intriguing.
Imagine a guy being born as a 80 something years old man? He lives life in a anti-clockwise way and gets younger and younger day by day when others around him gets older and older day by day. The plot itself is already very interesting and the movie completes with greating acting from Brad Pitt! I never saw him act like this before. His acting is great and convinces me that he is Benjamin Button, no matter it's a 7 years old boy stuck in a 80 something years old body or a 50 something years old man looking like a teenager. He should get the Best Actor ok! =)
Well, this movie is certainly unique and I really liked the plot! It kept me thinking about life. The best years of your life is really only that few years. You would have to live your life to the fullest or your best years would just pass before you realised it, mo matter you age forward (like a normal person) or backwards(like Benjamin Button). Besides that, it's pure pleasure seeing Brad Pitt growing younger and younger bit by bit. (Coz he became more and more handsome. LOL!)Although I suddenly liked Brad Pitt after this movie (never been a fan of his before), I wouldn't like to be his girlfriend! I would hate to see my wrinkles growing out every single day and see his wrinkles disappearing. Haha!
The make up and the effects of the movie is great and there are some scenes of humour too. I love the guy who got stuck by lightning 7 times. Just makes me laugh. Haha! And everything in the movie is just so precise! From the interior, the make-up ,the clothings...right up to the underwear of the actor and actresses! Makes me feel convinced that they are really in that era of time. Woo!! Just so cool!
So guys, remember to watch this movie. I'm sure you won't regret. However, make sure you are feeling awake when you buy the tickets. If you are feeling sleepy, you better watch it another day.
