January 20, 2 p.m. - BIG FISH
Our Wednesday Matinee Series continues with Big Fish. All I have to say about Big Fish is that it's one of my all-time favorite movies - mostly because it was such a cinematic and delightful surprise.
Here's what the critics have to say about this fabulous fable from director, Tim Burton:
A modern day "Wizard of Oz." - Scott Patrick, STARZ!/ENCORE
"Amazing! 'BIG FISH' is an incredible cinematic journey that is as wonderfully magical as it is visually dazzling." - Shawn Edwards, FOX-TV
“'BIG FISH' is Tim Burton's masterpiece." -Glenn Whipp, Los Angeles Daily News
The details: Big Fish - (2003) Starring Ewan McGregor, Albert Finney, Billy Crudup, and Jessica Lange; Rated PG-13; 125 minutes
Edward Bloom has always been a teller of tall tales especially about his own life. He has created a past for himself that has taken him from a small Alabama town on journeys around the work. His stories found him encountering giants, blizzards, witches and he even had a run-in with conjoined-twin lounge singers. Now that he is dying, his estranged son Will just wants to get a glimpse of what his father is really like.
