The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Button is born as a little baby old man who is taken care of at an elderly home. as he gets older, his body gets younger. when he's around 10 he meets a girl of the same age and falls in love but since he's a real weird looking 10 year old, nothing really happens and she's out of his life. when he's 17 and still looking weird he sets out on his own, getting a job and traveling the world on a boat. he gets drunk and laid for the first time and loves it. he's having a great life for being such a weirdo. he meets back up with the chick when he's older (looking younger) and a relationship starts. they have a kid and Button starts getting nervous about what is going to happen when he starts reverting into a child-like stage. he abandons his family only to be found years later back at the elderly home as a small child. his babys momma takes care of him like he's her own child. finally he dies as a little infant.
The Day The Earth Stood Still
Keanu comes to Earth as an alien who is to judge whether or not humans should be saved. when he finds out they are not a peaceful race and they are also destroying the planet through global warming, he communicates back saying to eliminate them and only save the other living beings of Earth. Jennifer Connelly tries to change his mind. So the big robot alien GORT changes into little tiny metal bugs and eats through everything in its way including people. Finally Connelly convinces Keanu that he made the wrong decision and he stops the destruction of Earth before it gets out of hand.
I love that last line of the Day the Earth Stood still: "Finally Connelly convinces Keanu that he made the wrong decision and he stops the destruction of Earth before it gets out of hand." This is AFTER little metal bugs are eating half the planet....
