The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

I have seen this movie roughly 4 times. Benjamin is certainly ( understatement alert ! ) interesting. The reverse of Robin Williams title character in the movie ” Jack “, it is like he has reverse progeria with maybe some sprinkles of ” Peter Pan – ism “. All things considered, as much as I might like to relive my youth, I really DON’T think I’d want to do so in a fashion like The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

(Paramount) Brad Pitt, Cate Blanchett, Taraji P. Henson, Julia Ormond, Tilda Swinton, Jason Flemyng, Elias Koteas, Mahershalalhashbaz Ali, Elle Fanning. Directed by David Fincher

Further anyway – What happens AFTER the Corpses come all the way back to life ? They’re reintegrating back into society as people, do they have to try to regain their human rights as well ? I’m reminded of the BBC series ” In The Flesh “. That’s what ” R ” & the former Corpses would have to deal with in my seed of a story idea.

With your indulgence, I will expand upon said story idea ( & maybe even come up with a title ! ) here.

Conservative actress tells Fox: Darth Vader is black because it’s in the Bible and ‘Jesus talks about it’

Where do they get THESE WHACK – JOB Helium – Heads ?

If anyone else said this, they’d be laughed at & derided everywhere they went !

& how do they connect the Bible with a science – fiction fantasy story ? Oh, right…… Fox Faux news.
