As my friend Tessa can tell you, things that bothered me, say, ten years ago often still bother me today. One of these things is a non-crucial plot point from the movie “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.” Spoilers for people who haven’t seen a nearly ten-year-old movie to follow.
So, Benjamin Button is born as an old man, and lives his life de-aging, eventually becoming an infant. For instance, when he’s seven, he looks much older:
Benjamin is born as an old man, but he is still born baby-sized. He then grows, as people normally do, into a full-sized person, albeit one who is ostensibly getting younger. So at the end, he should remain adult-sized, but as an infant. Benjamin Button should literally be a big baby. But instead, at the end, he turns into a regular-sized teenager, then regular-sized toddler, and then a regular-sized baby.
Even with the caveat that the whole idea of a man aging in reverse is supernatural and beyond the pale of rational discussion, I say to David Fincher come on. You should have ended the movie with a giant baby. It still bothers me.
