best movie ever

oh and yeah i watched The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and i think it is the best movie ever..although it might be a little bit too long, (2 hours 45 mins) it's definitely worth it. The whole movie is so touching from beginning to the end..very very heart0warming or whatever you call these kind of touching movies...

PLUS PLUS PLUS BRAD PITT IS UNFORGETTABLE in this movie..thought he should've won Best Actor in the Academy Awards a couple of nights ago but Sean Penn won in MILK???okay...

another amazing thing about this movie is its SOUNDTRACK by the amazing Alexandre Desplat. I've already downloaded most of the tracks and they are marvelous..so i shall put a playlist of the songs on my blog ;-P

here's a short synopsis of the show:

On the day that Hurricane Katrina hits New Orleans, elderly Daisy Williams nee Fuller is on her deathbed in a New Orleans hospital. At her side is her adult daughter, Caroline. Daisy asks Caroline to read to her aloud the diary of Daisy's lifelong friend, Benjamin Button. Benjamin's diary recounts his entire extraordinary life, the primary unusual aspect of which was his aging backwards, being born an old man who was diagnosed with several aged diseases at birth and thus given little chance of survival, but who does survive and gets younger with time. Abandoned by his biological father, Thomas Button, after Benjamin's biological mother died in childbirth, Benjamin was raised by Queenie, a black woman and caregiver at a seniors home. Daisy's grandmother was a resident at that home, which is where she first met Benjamin. Although separated through the years, Daisy and Benjamin remain in contact throughout their lives, reconnecting in their forties when in age they finally match up. Some of the revelations in Benjamin's diary are difficult for Caroline to read, especially as it relates to the time past this reconnection between Benjamin and Daisy, when Daisy gets older and Benjamin grows younger into his childhood years.

go brad pitt!

i wish i could watch it again ;-P
