Curiouser and Curiouser

After Susan’s  group discussion about coffee in Bewley’s Cafe yesterday evening, myself and The Boy toddled off to the cinema to see He’s Just Not That Into You. Unfortunately, the showing was sold out by the time we got there: fortunately we were in time to grab tickets for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

Super fortunately said film was AMAZING!

I’m really not surprised it’s received so many nominations (although I’ve seen The Reader and have to say I’m shocked that Kate’s done so well from it) because it’s a cinematic masterpiece. It really is almost art.

It’s amazingly funny and sad and heartwarming and just pure lovely!Also it’s 5 MILLION times better than the original book, which is something I very rarely say (the only other one that received that remark from me was Lord of the Rings).

Brad Pitt was superb and I really think Cate Blanchett should have received way more recognition for the role than she did.

Can’t wait for it to come out on DVD.
