The Angry Cankle

December 26, 2008

So I decided to watch ‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button’. Basically the storyline revolves around Brad Pitt’s character, Benjamin, a guy who is born an old man and througout his life gets younger. The movie had been getting some pretty alright reviews so I thought it would be good. My experience did’t begin well as in the aisle of the theatre I bumped my foot on some sort of metal thing and making it bleed, something I discovered a good hour later. The movie was watchable but a little slow. For the first hour-and-a-half Benjamin didn’t really age at all, leading me to ask myself how long it was going to take for him to become a baby again. The movie was also narrated, kinda the same way that ‘The Princess Bride’ is if you have seen that. There was also some intertwining of Hurricane Katrina and this whole storm motif that I didn’t really understand. It wasn’t a terrible movie, but when you give three hours of your life to something, you expect a decent level of satisfaction.
