Thursday Movie Picks

Thursday Movie Picks: Characters Magically Ageing Up or Down

This week’s theme is a mix of everything really. A bit of romance, a bit of comedy and then some drama. It was easy enough to pick the three movies to recommend because I haven’t seen many magical ageing movies. I bet I’ll find all these picks in other lists this week!

1. THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON (2008)

The only pick in this list that is about ageing down – aka really old Brad Pitt turns to a baby Brad Pitt. While the movie might not have wowed me plot wise per say, the visual achievements are amazing to witness. Young and fresh faced Brad Pitt? I mean, yes please! All in all though, this movie is unique and strange in a good way.

2. BIG (1988)

I think I might have recommended this one already but it’s the prefect choice for this week. Big stars Tom Hanks, who plays a kid that makes a wish, and becomes an adult over night. There’s also a bit of a weird plot element that rubbed me the wrong way during my recent rewatch. Other than that though, this movie is funny and teaches a good lesson.

3. 13 GOING ON 30 (2004)

The title gives away the movie pretty well, referring to a girl, who magically becomes 30 over night. With Jennifer Garner and Mark Ruffalo starring, the movie is actually sweet and I really liked it back when it came out. Honestly, I can still see myself liking this one even now.
