I was supposed to post one of these already last week, but I was busy lying deep in my bed, shivering from fever, so I guess I can be excused for the delay. The simple little idea of these simple little posts (that I'm intending to be posting once a week) is simply just that they give me a chance to say a word about some of my older favourites - films (and scenes, in particular) that I otherwise haven't had the time or place to mention. Let's see how this gets on, and whether I'll get bored in a month or make this a lasting custom.
Big Fish is one of my favourite Tim Burton films. It's a magical and vivid story about storytelling and what a pinch of imagination can do for an otherwise dull tale. When inside Edward Bloom's stories, anything can happen... So of course, when Edward meets his future wife, time stops, literally. I love the moment when he sweeps the popcorn out of his way... And how time then runs in extra speed afterwards. Genious. Oh and don't we all love Ewan McGregor? I know I do.
