Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
Michael A. Smith
A magical and moving account of a man living his life resoundingly in reverse, very loosely based on an F. Scott Fitzgerald short tale from 1922, it delivers top-notch moviemaking in every department.
Ben Button was a fun film. It was long, which is fine, it was well acted, which is great, and the story was well put together and made sense, which is mandatory. But there was a lack of depth to the whole story that was covered up by the unique case of Ben Button, of course him growing younger rather than older. Why this is not a homerun is because there was nothing out of the ordinary about the character other than the obvious. No accomplishment, no talent, no failure, nothing. I enjoyed it though.

Are you serious? Did you pay attention to a word of the movie? Horrible dialogue that tried to copy Forrest Gump just omitting the sense. Corny lines puked all over, no where to land, and a quasi dead main character that could well have been a robot. A waste of an opportunity to explore interesting themes is made into a preachy movie that preaches nothing. It has its technical accomplishments. Computer intromissions are pretty much the only thing that keep you watching (you dont care much about what is going to happen next other than how are he and she going to look next (or if something seems interesting and causes curiosity, the author just discards it and moves on into a disposable new event instead of exploring the former). Another good thing is her acting that saves an otherwise boring character (as swinton makes hers good too.
