Photo: Paramount Pictures The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is a story of a man born with the physical characteristics and appearance of an 80-year-old man. He grows younger and younger as the years pass on, which makes him an outsider to those that know of his affliction. However, that is not to confuse physical appearances with the heart, mind and soul of a man. Benjamin Button's aging process, as has been pointed out by others, is merely a metaphor for how the beginning and ends of our lives are no different whether lived backwards or forward with a focus on the importance of how we live the moments in between. Beyond that, I ask you to not even consider Benjamin's "curious" aging process and simply get involved in the story. Benjamin is born in beautifully recreated »

"The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" reviewby Steve Ramos, Writer The Once and Future Brad Pitt Shines in 'Benjamin Button' The future Brad Pitt, a feeble and wrinkled old man, features in the first half of the epic romance "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button." Without his rebel good looks, thick blonde hair and fit body we’ve come to love and admire, Pitt relies upon his charisma and the one thing his handsome features often makes us forget; his deep talents as an actor. "Benjamin Button" is plush, colorful moviemaking, rich in detail and thoroughly clever. While it’s a masterwork for director David Fincher (He worked with Pitt before on the cop thriller “Seven” and “Fight Club”), revealing a sentimental side never seen in his previous films, it’s more a testament to Pitt’s talents. “Benjamin Button” is an exciting history of 20th Century America but more importantly, »
Fox met Harris - the actor son of late Irish film star Richard Harris - in 2003 after working together in West End show Les Liaisons Dangereuses. They wed two years later.
But the couple's marriage has been under scrutiny in recent months after Fox was pictured without her wedding ring - and now The Pianist star has allegedly moved her belongings out of the marital home in Los Angeles.
A close pal tells Britain's The Mail on Sunday, "They are not suited to each other.
"She is very successful and incredibly nice, whereas Jared is darker and more troubled. He is sensitive, a bit difficult and not a great looker (handsome), although that didn't seem to bother Emilia at first."
A spokeswoman for the couple has refused to comment on the reports. »
In the last episode of The Riches, Wayne Malloy (Eddie Izzard) was caught up in a shady construction deal with the Russian mob, his wife Dahlia (Minnie Driver) shared a kiss with a police officer who knew about her breaking parole, and their son Cael (Noel Fisher) was being used by dangerous traveller Quinn (Jared Harris) to threaten Wayne. What happens next?! We don't know, because that's when FX cancelled the show due to poor ratings. Because of the writer's strike, The Riches' second season was cut down to only 7 episodes last Spring. After a summer of uncertainty, last month FX finally announced that there will not be a third season. So how do we find out what happens after the cliffhanger? Well, you support Eddie Izzard's intention to make a self-financed movie.

There’s always a feeling with "The Riches" (9 p.m. Tuesday, Fx) that someone might be conning you.
It’s appropriate, given that the drama is about two vagabond con artists who’ve stolen the identities and house of a dead lawyer and his wife.
Wayne and Dahlia Malloy (Eddie Izzard and Minnie Driver) and their three kids are trying, with varying levels of success, to fit in with the cluster of suburban McMansions known as Eden Falls. But as Season 2 unfolds, Wayne and Dahlia, who are trying to pass themselves off as lawyer Doug Rich and his wife, Cherien, realize they’re not quite on their games as con artists.
They find it difficult to deliver the coup de grace to the people they’re deceiving, even though they’re allegedly hardened grifters of long standing. They have too much heart, so they waffle.
The same indecisiveness afflicts the show, »
