Hidden-Review-of-the-Day! Big Fish, Hook, Line, and Sinker!

     I'm sure many of you think Big Fish sounds like your "going to need a bigger boat". When actually, even with "Big Fish" as the films name, it's actually quite deceiving. The film is a very charming piece of work directed by Tim Burton and with a famous leading cast of Ewan McGegor and Helena Bonham Carter. "Big Fish shows a lot of heart and deserves to been seen to believe this wonderful fairy tail.

The cinematography plays a big role in the story just as much as the story itself.
     The story revolves around a dying father who never had the best relationship with his son and is finally piecing together the stories his father had told him while he was younger. As the son re-creates the father's life he begins to realize the father's great adventures he's been on and the troubles he's had to face. It's a fun story and one that never has a dull moment!

     On Reel Film Reviews, David Nusair writes how well the movie is paced and done by Tim Burton after his work on the new "Planet of the Apes" and his work in "Pee-Wee's Playhouse". "Big Fish" was made in 2003 and is almost pushing a decade since it's release. If you haven't taken the time to check it out or have never heard of it before it's definitely something new and has a lot of what Tim Burton is known for in his films.

Ewan McGregor stands in a field of flowers to impress the "love of his life".
     I watched this film a long time ago when I was younger and was taken a back by it because of it's difference. I'm sure if I watched it now I'd have a different look on it, but even when I was younger I still found it very pleasing to watch. It's a great film for anyone of any age and is perfect for those Saturdays with the family!
