All Horses Outta the Gate!

Glenn here. I thought I'd take a quick moment out of my busy schedule (hah! I have discovered I have chicken pox, which puts a serious crimp in my movie-going plans!) to ask y'all what you think of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button or anything else that the studios have finally found us mere mortals worthy enough to set our eyes on. My thoughts on Benjamin can be found here, but I (and I'm sure Nat too) would love to know what You think.

Cold and distant or touching and poetic?

Speak up in the comments!

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

25 December 2008 7:00 AM, PST | Pastemagazine.com | See recent PasteMagazine news »

Because of a crazy clock built to run backward, Benjamin Button Release Date: Dec. 25

Director: David Fincher

Writer: Eric Roth (story by Eric Roth and Robin Swicord)

Cinematographer: Claudio Miranda

Starring: Brad Pitt, Cate Blanchett, Taraji P. Henson, Julia Ormond, Tilda Swinton

Studio Information: Paramount Pictures, 159 mins.

Because of a crazy clock built to run backward, Benjamin Button was born with a strange malady. This is not the sort of thing we question in a film like this. We simply accept it and move on. He starts his life with the wrinkled skin and arthritic joints of an old man and seems to look and feel younger as he ages. As Arthur says of Merlyn in Lerner and Loewe’s Camelot, "He lives backward. He doesn't age. He youthens." »

Blu-Ray Review: ‘Burn After Reading’ Hilarious Movie, Horrible Blu-Ray

22 December 2008 9:23 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – It’s impossible for a critic to thoroughly defend something he finds funny but fully realizes that a large majority of the audience may not. Sometimes a film just hits your funny bone in right way. “Burn After Reading” does so for me, but may not for audiences without a little bit of a mean streak.

Fitting snugly into the Coen Brothers’ resume of slightly-demented comedies, “Burn After Reading” disappointed audiences expecting “No Country For Old Men 2”, but like “Raising Arizona”, “The Hudsucker Proxy”, and “The Big Lebowski”, should have an extensive life on the home market.

Every time the Coens have made a “serious” movie, they’ve followed it with a lark of a comedy. “Arizona” came after “Blood Simple”, “Hudsucker” followed “Barton Fink”, and “Lebowski” was an odd choice after “Fargo”. They’ve all thrown audiences for a loop. It happened again with “Burn After Reading”, a dark, »

Artist Steve McQueen's directorial debut, "Hunger," Mike Leigh's "Happy-Go-Lucky" and Ron Howard's "Frost/Nixon" are all in the chasing pack with five noms apiece.

"Millionaire" faces competition for British film of the year from "Happy-Go-Lucky," "Hunger," "In Bruges" and "Man on Wire."

"The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" review. The Once and Future Brad Pitt Shines

17 December 2008 6:10 AM, PST | Upcoming-Movies.com | See recent Upcoming-Movies.com news »

"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, »

Golden Globes Nominations Announced!

11 December 2008 5:02 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The 66th Annual Golden Globe Awards will be held in Hollywood on January 11, 2009, and the nominations for the prizes have just been unveiled. The big news is that Doubt, Frost/Nixon and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button lead the pack with five nominations apiece, closely followed by Slumdog Millionaire, Revolutionary Road, Vicky Cristina Barcelona and The Reader with four.It's anyone's race, as the wide spread of these nominations suggests. The big Best Motion Picture - Drama category sees Button, Frost/Nixon, The Reader, Revolutionary Road and Slumdog Millionaire fighting it out for the big prize, proving that every film with awards pretensions should have at least one British star (Button's got Tilda Swinton, after all, and that's the only one with a merely tenuous link). Just behind the leaders are The Wrestler with three, and In Bruges, which took acting nominations in the Comedy/Musical category for both Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson. »

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

11 December 2008 12:59 AM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Casting Director: Laray Mayfield Director: David Fincher Writer: Eric Roth Starring: Brad Pitt, Cate Blanchett, Taraji P. Henson, Elle Fanning, Tilda Swinton, Julia Ormond The Pitch: In a film adapted from an F. Scott Fitzgerald story, Benjamin (Pitt) leads an unusual life, born at age 80 in post-World War I New Orleans and aging backward into the 21st century.The Curious Case of Benjamin Button could have been a casting director's dream — or nightmare. Starring Brad Pitt as a man aging backward, David Fincher's sixth feature is a sprawling fable with an equally sprawling cast. Fortunately, Laray Mayfield, who cast the filmmaker's Se7en, Fight Club, Panic Room, and Zodiac, relished the challenge. Fincher brought her the project three or four years before it went into production, without any star names attached — although, Mayfield says, the director always had Pitt in mind to play the title role: "David has a very »

Blu-Ray Review: ‘The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian’ One of Most Extensive Releases of Season

10 December 2008 6:59 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – “The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian” may have fallen flat at the box office this summer but it is sure to be a gigantic hit on Blu-Ray this holiday season. Not only are the words “family Disney movie” practically a license to print money around this time of year, but this studio has been one of the frontrunners in the race for the best at making Blu-Ray.

With “Prince Caspian”, they may not have made one of the greatest films or even Blu-Ray releases of the season but the mantra of “bigger is better” that clearly followed the production of the film has made it intact to the extensive Bd release.

Personally, I found the critical and commercial shrug that greeted “Prince Caspian” somewhat surprising. Releasing what should have been a holiday film in between Iron Man and Indiana Jones IV was clearly a misstep, but »
