After a string of mediocre movies, director Tim Burton (Corpse Bride, Edward Scissorhands) regains his footing as he shifts from macabre fairy tales to Southern tall tales. Big Fish twines in and out of the oversized stories of Edward Bloom, played as a young man by Ewan McGregor (Moulin Rouge) and as a dying father by Albert Finney (Tom Jones). Edward's son Will (Billy Crudup, Almost Famous) sits by his father's bedside but has little patience with the old man's fables, because he feels these stories have kept him from knowing who his father really is. Burton dives into Bloom's imagination with zest, sending the determined young man into haunted woods, an idealised Southern town, a travelling circus, and much more. The result is sweet but--thanks to the director's dark and clever sensibility--never saccharine. Also featuring Jessica Lange, Alison Lohman, Helena Bonham Carter, Danny DeVito, and Steve Buscemi. --Bret Fetzer

agreed, just a paste jobby :thumbsup:

Not great reviews of the picture on this one. lots say it just looks like the dvd.

Actually, I'd say this is one of the best movies ever made (not like top 10 material or anything, but certainly top 100), and I've seen thousands.

Great price, but unfortunately I have to stick to the dvd version because my Blu-ray player is american and this blu-ray isn't region free.
