the long movie part, yeah i didn't expect it to be 3 hours either haha, but it was a good use of 3 hours, i don't think they coulda cut it shorter.
Yea last night I watched the first 40 mins or so and I see what you mean. So I take it back and don't consider it a spoiler.

Just finished it last night. At first I wasn't sure if I would like the movie going in to it. The story seemed interesting but I wasn't sure if I would enjoy it or be bored. In the end I did enjoy it quite a bit. Great movie!

i could only stand watching half the film.....


its just forest gump and titanic mixed into 1.... you have the disabled guy going on these worldwide adventures (forest gump) and you have a dying old lady reliving the old days (titanic)

ill try and watch the second half... maybe it'll have redeeming factors.. but if i was in the theatres i woulda been out the door demanding my money back

There's so many good quotes, I can't remember them all, but I think I like this one best:

"You could be as mad as a maddog at the way things went, or swear and curse the fates....but in the end, you have to let go"

I felt that the movie made good use of the intended 2:46 minutes. I didn't feel that the movie was dragged on (It didn't feel like it was 3 hours). I would 100% recommend this movie.

Just finished watching it. Really, really good movie. It's almost three hours long but it definitely didn't feel like it. It's quite a tearjerker. Lots of really touching moments.

i guess i didnt explain my feelings at all lol

it wasn't that it was a long movie (im used to watching bollywood films at times which are like 100hrs long) its that the movie is basically a copy of the movies i listed earlier (which btw buttons doesn't measure up to) and that the film moved at too slow a pace... im fine with a slow pace if its building on characters or it supports the film in some way... but in buttons it seemed to be long just to set a tone of boredom. i guess u could say that was the point, to support the mood of aging and death.. but regardless, it didn't help the film for me and (coupled with the film imitations) just made it unbearable

well, the movie can't talk about everyone, it just revolved around the ones who were important to him and at that time, he wasn't around the home that often

Yeah, the general formula of the movie is the same as Forrest Gump, but Benjamin Button is a different person and perceives things differently and more thoughtfully, and he has more complex emotions, because he's obviously not retarded. So I found that it is in fact a very different movie

The plot could've been more interesting IMO.....I mean it is a rare and interesting case afterall....

It was a good movie but it wasn't an OMGWOW AWESOME one for me...~

The make-up and special effects were crazy though....so realistic....

Just watched it tonight. It was fantastic, I didn't want it to end (although I lost feeling in my legs). A great script and I do see the similarities that people have mentioned but I felt it flowed really well and had some great characters.

yeah it was a dope movie but there was an answer to every question, i would have liked it better to keep me guessing at some parts.

At the end of the movie, like 20% of the people started to clap but i guess everyone was afraid so they didnt clap. Pretty sad actually, the movie was worth an applause. Unlike Batman where everyone was going nuts b4 and after the movie.
