The curious case of Benjamin Button.

- I suspect he suffers from the same rare disease.

We had time to kill. It was Monday evening at our local joint. Fresh out from our Monday Blues period at work, we found ourselves wanting some fun or a venue to let off steam.

Each of us opined on what we should do. It covered a vast area spanning from Takraw right down to Karaoke. We chose the movies. So, Xul, Zano, Armi and I went to watch the movie as titled above.

Right after the purchase was made, while our money was still in the cashier's hand, I saw on the flyer in front of me. It read - Benjamin Button - 170 minutes.

"Nor, 170 minit la, tak lama ke?"

"A'ah siot..damn 3 jam nih."

Ok, so we anticipated what the next 3 hours was like while having a very sped up dinner at Waffle's World. I had a classic waffle.

The first hour of the movie was a little bit of a drag. But once the characters of the movie have sip through our minds, I think the movie went on at a very leisurely pace. In fact it was rather entertaining. Please bare in mind that I have kept myself only occupied with comedy movies since last year. I wouldn't want to spent 170 minutes in the movies thinking about the movie. I'd rather laugh my head off. But spent hours I did and I was left eager till the very end of the movie, trying to hope for the best for both Benjamin and Daisy though I realise that it was bleak.

I really entertaining movie. I can really see why they won an Oscar for best make-up. I do recommend it for all of you, provided that you weren't too tired and have the time to spare.
