Big Fish (2003) 
A newer fairytale
3.5/4 stars

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 part of, he played Karl the giant, and he passed away a couple years later. I've recommended this movie to a number of people since 2003, and still recommend it to those that haven't seen it yet.
