Nothing In It; Being the blog of Elliott C. 'Eeyore' Evans (hosted at his domain '')

This post is titled:

Benjamin Button

We finally went to see this film last night. Wow, what a movie. It's quiet and subtle. It's funny and sad. It's about life. It may make you cry like a baby. The acting is great. The dialogue is only a small part of the communication. The clocks are everywhere. You should go see the movie.

Thirty years ago, people would be talking everywhere about the makeup effects used in this movie. Now, they are incidental to the movie. You won't think much about them.

I read one review of this movie, from a reviewer who was bored and compared it unfavorably to "Forest Gump". I should hunt that review down, so I know whose reviews to never read again.
