Podcast: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button/ Forrest Gump – Extra Film
On this week’s Extra Film, Ryan and Jay continue their David Fincher Movie Series with The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, and then they review the classic, Forrest Gump.
Riding off of Zodiac, David Fincher took a turn to his most “Oscar-y” film to date with The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, a film about a man aging backwards throughout his interesting life. Marred as being lesser Fincher, the Extra Film lads dive deep into this innocent love story that has darker elements under the surface. By the end of the review, Ryan and Jay determine that this is one of Fincher’s best films and something everyone should reevaluate. This might be the best conversation they have had so far in this movie series, so do give it a listen.
After that, the boys turn to the Best Picture winner of 1994, Forrest Gump. Known for being an all-time classic with one of Tom Hanks’s best performances of his career, Forrest Gump follows one man’s journey through his life and the United States of America. There is a charm to this film that many adore, and it works for the most part for Jay. As for Ryan, he’s on record for not like this movie at all. With this in mind, it leads to a lively discussion that will have you shocked by the end of it.
