Big Fish

Okay, so I’ve actually watched this film on HBO a year or two ago. I really loved the movie because it’s an interesting exploration of how fiction is more vibrant, even more real, than reality itself. In fact, storytelling itself, as well as the act of listening to stories, becomes integral to life–something echoed by the philosopher Paul Ricoeur. This is what William learns as he is finally reconciled with his father, Edward Bloom.

Or, you know, the tall tales Edward Bloom tells his son are not only instructive, but very entertaining. As in time stopped, quite literally, as Edward Bloom found his true love.

So yeah. Tim Burton has done well in not making yet another Batman movie. If only a certain someone would learn not to tamper with another well-established, well-acclaimed series.

Anyway. Yeah.
