The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button

Solid. David Fincher is a solid filmmaker. Unfortunately he has been saddled with remaking Forrest Gump, and the finished product, though a solidly constructed film, has the depth of a puddle.
Too much in it = too much glossed over in an attempt to chronicle a timespan of 80 years under the misguided notion that this will automatically make it 'epic'.
Like Gump, not total cack, but when compared with a film such as 'There Will Be Blood' it comes off slight and insipid.
Good special effects though.

  1. I did a poster for the remake, did you see it?
