I love good movies. You see so much crap on the boob tube that it is a delight to see something really good.

It's rare to see the really good ones. Good movies for us is not about action, or violence, but the story.

We watched "The Curious Tale of Benjamin Buttons" last night and I was blown away. It was a beautiful story about a person who basically was born old and lived life in reverse dying as an infant.

I never really knew that Brad Pitt could act, but he did a remarkable job in this movie. Also, this movie had some incredible lines.

"You never know what's coming for you."

"We're meant to lose the people we love. How else would we know how important they are to us?"

"You can be as mad as a mad dog at the way things went. You could swear, curse the fates, but when it comes to the end, you have to let go."

"Some people, were born to sit by a river. Some get struck by lightning. Some have an ear for music. Some are artists. Some swim. Some know buttons. Some know Shakespeare. Some are mothers. And some people, dance."

If you haven't seen Benjamin Buttons, and you have three hours to invest, I highly recommend this movie.

    Ditto on the accolades for "Benjamin Button". Kayren and I got to see it right after it came out. I can still remember walking out of the theatre with all the thoughts and emotions it had stirred up in me. Some of the lines you mention and others had hit home even though my life has been lived in opposite progression. A lot of life's lessons presented in a most interesting way.
    My emotions were quelled rather quickly however, as we reached the parking lot I overheard a teenage young man say to his date, "That didn't really happen". I was quite perplexed that the young man and I had just sat through the same 3 hour presentation and all he came away with was that "It didn't happen."
    He doesn't graduate. He must return to class. Enroll him in "LIFE 101"!
