Big Fish review

A story of a man much like Forrest Gump, who have experienced a lot during his lifetime and his son, who has trouble deciphering his father’s stories if it is fact or fiction. The body of Edward Bloom (Ewan McGregor) started growing faster like a fish he read about in an encyclopedia. He became the town’s best player in different sports. A giant from his town of Ashton was being ostracized. Bloom was able to negotiate with the gentle giant to leave town, since it wasn’t “big” enough for both of them. He was able to accidentally find a dreamlike village (named Spectre) where there are no problems, food and celebration galore. After seeing his future wife at a circus, namely Sandra Tibbleton, he mentioned that “when you meet the love of your life time stops.” He sacrifices to work...

A Touching, Imaginative Film

I've mentioned many times before that I love films that are about the power of imagination. This is one of those pictures but it does not completely lose track of reality. Instead of using imagination as its main weapon, it becomes the backdrop. What is at the forefront is family relationships, especially between a father who loves to tell stories to whoever he meets and a son that fails to extract the facts from fiction.

A newer fairytale

This movie was one that I bought without having seen it before. I enjoy most Tim Burton films and I was sure that this would be a good one. A friend of mine told me that I should see it, and I didn't really know what to expect, so I really walked into watching this completely blind. I am glad that I have friends that know my taste in movies, because this is a great film. Its reminds me so much of a classic fairy tale and yet it is completely original. The script was well written Albert Finney was amazing as the elderly Edward Bloom. Apparently Ewan McGreggor was chosen for the part because when Finney was McGreggors age, they looked very similar.
The story is nice, and the cast is great. It should also be known that this is the one of last big budget productions that Matthew McGrory was...
