1. RUN to the video store and rent "Big Fish". It is absolutely wonderful.
I think it's Tim Burton's best film. It's magical, funny and quite special. Trust me on this one. :-)

3. "Big Fish" is wonderful!
It almost makes up for "Planet of the Apes".

4. I liked Radio
If you saw Remember the Titans, it has the same feel to it although the story is less about athletic heroics than it is about compassion, integrity, and a heroic willingness to help others. Its definitely not a film Republicans would like.

5. Another Big Fish rec...
Unless you're the type of person who likes movies with plots.

all i'm saying is don't expect anything more meaningful than getting the shit entertained out of you.

12. I disagree
that it is mere entertainment. It was the equal in metaphors to "Raising Arizona."

6. Big Fish is beautiful. My husband, who never watches a movie more
than once, has suggested after watching it that we buy the DVD. I'm hard to please and I give Big Fish a 10 out of 10. I highly reccommend it.

8. I choked up at the end...
The ending is very heartfelt and moving.

"Big Fish" is really an amazing film. It restores your faith in filmmaking. :-)

11. Big Fish is neat, but...
Girlfriend last night asked if we'd seen it; she didn't remember it at all. My story is that it's so dreamlike that in memory it's not much like a movie. I'd recommend it with only that caveat: if it's completely forgotten 3-4 months later, that could be something less than a glowing recommendation.

14. I loved Thirteen.... if you can keep track of it all, you will too
If you have a hard time following a complicated plot, forget it.

15. Thirteen depressed me. The acting by Evan Rachel Wood
was amazing. Holly Hunter was good too. I just felt kind of blah after it was over.
