• The Curious Case of Brad Pitt

    I caught The Curious Case of Benjamin Button on Christmas day.  We pretty much failed watching it at Burbank, a town that I have watched grow into a pseudo Santa Monica tourist attraction.  Attracting new businesses and better shops is definitely a benefit from all this…let’s call it “gentrification,” but the huge wave of countless teenagers and pathetic lack of parking immediately takes away its initial appeal.  Instead, we decided to catch the late show in Van Nuys.

    Anyways, I was watching the movie and I wondered what people will say about Brad Pitt in 50 years.  Of course he’s a superstar, but will they immortalize and mythologize this dude like they do with 1950’s film stars?  I’m talking about James Dean, Cary Grant, Fred Astaire, the Rat Pack, and the like.  Will coeds put up “old-school” posters of this versatile actor on their dorm room walls?  Will the future generation blogs post up black and white pictures of Mr. Pitt and talk about how cool he was back then? (I don’t do this but I know people who do.  Personally, I think it’s really SWPL.)  Who knows?  Just something to think about.

    Posting will be sporadic for the next couple of days.  It seems like most of the blogosphere seems to be on break as the bloggers are spending time with their families during the holidays.  Thanks for reading and thanks to everyone who shouted us out during Christmas.  Sorry if we didn’t get back to you in a timely fashion, but we will.

    I’ve never really thought he was an outstanding actor. To me, his appeal is all in his looks! :) This is one movie of his that looks really interesting though…. but maybe it looks so good because a great actress (Cate) is in it. Haha.

    First of all, I thought this movie was amazing. Second, in some capacity, I definitely think that BP will be idolized. He’s been in too many amazing movies to not–Burn After Reading, FIGHT CLUB (trumps all), A River Runs Through It, etc., etc., etc. Right?

    And this movie just added to it. He was scrumptious, no?

    I’m aching to see this… I’ve heard some pretty terrific reviews, and just have to see for myself.

    Happy New Year.

    have you read the short story? i heard it’s terribly different from the movie.
    as for brad pitt, i’m sure he’ll be remembered but not immortalized like fred astaire and such.

    Happy New Year, Cas! Lily and I also caught it on Christmas Day. It wasn’t our first movie of the day. We saw “The Spirit” – what an absolute train wreck of a flick. We felt so cheated out of $10 that we stuck around for Benjamin Button. Great movie, great characters. I do feel that Cate Blanchett and Tilda Swindon were much better than Brad but his role felt like a plot device to showcase the interesting people he comes across in his life.
