Big Fish

Doesn't that film just warm your heart and make you feel good about being in the story telling business?!!

I did enjoy this but felt it overrated; I enjoyed it in a watch it one time way but feel no need to own it or rent it again. It is one of Burtons 'Hit's (he is so Hit and MIss for me)

Big Fish was a touching film but never really peaked for me

My Hit or Miss Burton List:

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - Hit From What I understand?
Big Fish - Hit
Planet of the Apes - Miss Gigantically
Sleepy Hollow - Hit
Mars Attacks! _ Miss
Ed Wood - Hit
Batman Returns - Miss
Edward Scissorhands - Hit
Batman - Miss
Beetle Juice - Hit
Pee-wee's Big Adventure - Hit
Frankenweenie - Hit

Matthew McGrory who played Karl the Giant passed away Aug 9th. He was 32. According to the AP report, "Paramedics determined he died of apparent natural causes, police said."

Yes. I really enjoyed the film as well. I thought it touched and delt with a very real issue. The poor relationship many men experience with their fathers. In many cases it's not 'till dad dies is he appreciated.

Ouch, natural causes at the age of 32?

I for one loved Big Fish!
