now I don't think I would pick just one favourite movie, but if forced too Big Fish could be it.
Release in 2003, directed by Tim Burton based off the novel written by Danial Wallace. Big Fish stars Ewan McGregor, Albert Finney, Billy Crudup, Jessica Lange, Helena Bonham Carter, Alison Lohman, Marion Cotillard, Steve Buscemi and Danny Devito.
Will Bloom and his wife Josephine are called home to Alabama due to his father Edward's battle with cancer taking a turn for the worse. While the father and son are not estranged, the relationship has been rocky for quite some time.
The reason is the habit of Edward Bloom to constantly tell unbelievable tall tales, from the giant catfish he caught using his wedding ring as bait, to the day time literally stopped when he met his future wife Sandra Templeton. These tales have followed Will all his life and he has a deep anger and resentment towards these lies.
The film uses flashbacks to show Edward Blooms life, an adventurous and crazy one to be sure, with plenty of quirky characters and surprising guest stars to keep an eye out for.
As Will gets to understand his dying father a bit better, he realizes that perhaps these tales are not so tall.
Dealing with themes including reconciliation, accepting death and how generally one never knows their parents outside of the parental role.
76% on - this movie didnt get award season love, nominated for one oscar and four golden globes but winning none, it did gross over 122 million.
One of few examples of the film surpassing the book, Burton tells a visually stunning and creative tale of true love and how one views themselves internally and projects that to the outside world (some may say exaggerating). Superb acting, wonderful score, and amazing cinematography and effects.
Be prepared to have your view blurred the last few minutes, as this one gets the tears going every.single.time.

Big Fish by Daniel Wallace: I’m going to be in a production of Big Fish (the musical) this summer so I thought I’d read it first, and wow. This is a great book. I just finished it and it just left me with a big smile on my face. This was such a good, lighthearted, wholesome book. It’s a nice, happy story about a son and a father. The whole book is just one big awesome dad joke, and it’s great. It’s written very beautifully and interestingly. The style is unique, it’s not written in you typical chapter format but instead broken up into nice chunks of story. At time it was a bit odd and hard to follow / hard to understand, but that might just be the style of writing. It felt very free, so it’ll also be interesting to see how they adapted the book into the movie. Overall, this is a great book. I loved it. It’s a nice feel good book, and it’s also a pretty quick read which is nice. In general, great book. ~dani ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I realize there is something perverse about posting that I have no time to read, then skipping 5 minutes later to a post about the new books I bought this week. Send help..... but actually really don’t. Maybe send checks. I have more books to buy.
Tim Burton's best work, hands down! It's rich in story and rich in characters. There is an unseen spirit in our reality, a reality hard to capture or communicate. This film presents that spirit beautifully and presents it as the most precious gift of all.
I felt compelled to follow the story through the world of fantasy that Tim Burton assembled for us, to a point where everything started making perfect sense.
Ten foot giants, giant catfish, Siamese-twin vaudeville singers are only a small part of the narrative which weaves back and forth between a wonderfully inventive fantasy world and the reality of the world of Edward Bloom.
From start to finish Tim Burton swirls his wildly colourful cinematographic paint onto the big-screen with precise brush strokes.
But at the core of this simple tug-of-war between father (Albert Finney - present/Ewen McGregor -past) and son (Billy Crudup) lies the most excellent and irresistible nugget of truth.
Jessica Lange is wonderfully believable, and Helena Bonham Carter is positively magic.
When it catches fire, this great-looking movie offers hilarious diversions. And as father and son struggle toward a hard-won reconciliation, "Big Fish" reveals its beating heart.
You can hardly fathom any meaning to life without having lived many years. It’s a really well done whimsical legend of a simply extraordinary ordinary man.
Only Tim Burton could capture so much truth in surrealism and exaggeration! .

Big Fish 2003
Fantasy Comedy Drama
Tim Burton the smart genius that created so many films that blow our mind off, with his direction of movies, stories or any character that he build up that people never seen before, like Nightmare Before Christmas, Corpse Bride, Bettlejuice, Scissorhand and many more but surprise surprise Burton always lost to Disney in big nominations.
Big Fish, a novel written by Daniel Wallace back in 1998 then it become full lenght movie directed by Tim Burton with a big success, I just watched this movie once in my life but still remember the effect from the story cause it got strong story n big impact in every scenes, the storytelling flashback part by part it turn into a genius smart fantasy film that hit adults with its fantasy, the show that we re adults still can do anything with our fantasy, this movie just a lot to take in cause theres so many incredible things happen in inside the movie, that impossible turn into possible thing even you dont believe it. Like the witch, the giant, the town that never wear shoes and the big fish that live in the river every part of the story got their own unique way to self represent, its just a mind blow fantasy that ever made by Burton from the novel, become crystal clear film. Even theres so many character inside the movie like Jessica Lange, Helena Carter but the main cast tells to the father n son bonding before the father died and he tell the story whether you believe it or not or just a crazy story but if you believe it you ll see it and of course the touching emotions moment for the son n father.
Edward Bloom (Finney), a former traveling salesman in the Southern United States with a gift for storytelling, is now confined to his deathbed. Will (Crudup), his estranged son, attempts to mend their relationship as Bloom relates tall tales of his eventful life as a young adult
