User reviews Review. Featured review. Tim Burton's career equivalent of "Forrest Gump" is an ultimately rewarding adult fable with some beautiful cinematography and memorable ideas It was either "Cheaper by the Dozen," "The Haunted Mansion" or this.
I didn't exactly feel like watching my favorite comedian run around with a horde of little kids cracking bad poopy jokes behind them, and I didn't want to see Eddie Murphy do this either it was bad enough in last year's "Daddy Day Care" , so I chose to see the more adult-oriented of these three films, and I'm glad I did, because Tim Burton's "Big Fish" is a marvelous film--full of wit and imagination and eerie vibes that sometimes don't fit into Burton's films the way he wants them to--but actually have a purpose here.
That was Burton's breakthrough--then came "Batman," which was very good but slightly lacking in substance, and then came "Edward Scissorhands"--one of my sister's favorite films, a beautiful love story and an eerie fable but just missing a very small ingredient that kept it from becoming a great movie perhaps the same with his film "Ed Wood"--a very good film, but not exactly one of my all-time favorites. I have my doubts as to whether anyone other than Tim Burton could have pulled off "Big Fish.
The movie doesn't quite exceed on the level it tries to, but as a film, it's one of the best motion pictures of the year.
It stars Albert Finney as Edward Bloom, an old man who loves to exaggerate tales of his past and pass these on to his friends and family. One night his son, William Billy Crudup , tires of hearing the story about how he caught the town's largest fish in a lake using a gold ring--so he ignores his father for three whole years, until his mother Jessica Lange informs Will that his father is dying of cancer, and that he wishes to speak with his son one last time.
Drawn back to his old Alabama hometown with his new wife, Will finally learns the truth about these so-called "exaggerated" stories--and we, as the audience, get to see them in flashback mode. It begins with a young Edward Ewan McGregor , a "big fish" who was just too small for his own town and had to move away to search for brighter prospects. On his journey he comes across an assortment of odd fellows, including a "Gentle Giant," a failed poet living in a heavenly town named Spectre, and a strange circus ringleader who also happens to be a werewolf.
All of these stories that Edward Senior tells his family relate to their current positions, and to call the film simply beautiful would be what John Candy once said is "the understatement of the year.
Buscemi's poet has been working on a particular poem for twelve years whilst living in Spectre. It says, "Roses are red, violets are blue, I love Spectre. Danny DeVito also appears as the circus ringleader, and the most regretful scene in the film is that in which we see him naked from behind.
I shudder at the thought. But, for what it's worth, DeVito's second re-teaming with Burton is magnificent--he's a supporting character, but the film certainly benefits from his performance. Like all of Burton's films, "Big Fish" teeters on the edge of greatness, but it never quite crosses the line. This is a marvelous film, full of warmth, kind-hearted fables and beautiful cinematography, and it's one of the best films of the year. It's certainly a unique film experience unlike any you've ever had before.
Unless, of course, you've seen "Edward Scissorhands" or "Ed Wood. Still, I enjoyed it more than "The Lord of the Rings. Trivia note: "Edward Scissorhands" was a Tim Burton film.
The main character of this film is named Edward. Sometimes when people pronounce his name with their thick Alabama accents it comes across as "Ed Wood. We may never find out. John Ulmer.

Year: Directors: Jared Hess Country: the United States Cast: Jon Heder , Efren Ramirez , Jon Gries , Aaron Ruell Theme: A listless and alienated teenager decides to help his new friend win the class presidency in their small western high school, while he must deal with his bizarre family life back home.
The uncle also looks to get involved in get-rich-quick schemes together with Kip, in order to get money. And this is absolutely crucial since they get along and actually fall for each other.
They also get married at the end. Now, this is actually HUGE. But this one succeeds. Even for a year-old slacker with no job, who gets involved in a morally bad scheme, designed to trick people. In the movie, a mother — Daphne — is worried about her now single daughter — Milly — and wishes to find the perfect partner for her.
Obviously, she looks no further than Online Dating, creating a personal Ad for her daughter. Daphne finds someone she believes to be perfect for her daughter. She sets up a date for the two without Milly knowing it. In the meanwhile, Milly actually finds a potential partner, who her mother had actually looked into through the Ad and did not approve.
Milly is put into a situation where she can either be the woman her mother wants her to be, or she can be the woman she wants to be. These are all the things that have a connection to Online Dating, and we can all get a TON of value from them.
Year: Directors: Joe Swanberg Country: the United States Cast: Kevin Bewersdorf , Joe Swanberg , C. Mason Wells Theme: The relationships of three men are examined through their use of technology. Now, this movie is almost purely about Online Dating. The movie is about maintaining different relationships online and how the process has an impact on us. The movie is also looking at the male struggles in particular. Balancing their life between reality and their addiction online is what makes LOL … LOL.
Year: Directors: Gary David Goldberg Country: the United States Cast: Diane Lane , John Cusack , Elizabeth Perkins Theme: A forty-something preschool teacher looks to the personals for a change of pace and a relationship, with hilarious results. This movie is about a recently divorced teacher — Sarah — around year-old. Her family urges her to start looking for another partner, but she has a lot on her head.
On the other side of everything, we have the other main character — Jake. Sarah then starts going on numerous dates, but they all turn out to be terrible. The date then goes horribly wrong, since he admits that the dog is not his. The next date goes waaay more smoothly but ends up in a funny and awkward drive through the city in search of condoms, which ruins the mood for both of them. This makes Jake leave.
Sarah goes on a date with Bob and they end up hooking up, but after that, she finds out that he actually hooked up with her co-worker. Jake also goes on a date with another woman. Sarah then talks with her father and realizes that he spoke to Jake and that his feelings are true. That makes her go chase after him and confess her love. As you can see from this short synopsis, the movie really teaches us a lot about Online Dating, and not in a way that many may catch at first glance.
But this movie guides us through the numerous different dates that people can go on during their Online Dating experience, and most of these will be done at the same time. This is something that many people seem to forget. You REALLY CAN NOT be exclusive while doing Online Dating. The movie also teaches us that we need to stick to it and persevere in order to succeed.
But because she stuck to it and kept going and looking for the next one, things eventually worked out. Year: Directors: Sean Anders Country: the United States Cast: Josh Zuckerman , Clark Duke , Amanda Crew Theme: A high school senior drives cross-country with his best friends to hook up with a babe he met online.
This movie sounds a bit like Eurotrip… An online connection with a girl turns into the main protagonist traveling a long distance to meet her and experiencing some crazy adventures on the way there. But this movie is A LOT MORE different. Problem is that she lives on the other side of USA. So, naturally, Ian takes his best friends — Lance and Felicia — and takes off to meet Ms.
The three of them go on a wild trip, during which their car engine stops working and are met with a community of Amish people who help them out.
There, Lance falls in love with a girl named Mary. After finally reaching Ms. Fortunately, everything turns out just fine and Ms. Tasty and her boyfriend are thrown into jail…. Even though in the end Ian and Felicia got together, the main goal of the characters, in the beginning, was to get Ian together with Ms. The movie brilliantly portrays that it is definitely possible to find love the old-fashioned way instead of it being an Online Dating thing only….
If you like this, read on to the next movie…. The movie is about a man — Nev — who finds a family through Facebook and starts a relationship with one of the sisters — Megan. These turn out to be cut from YouTube. They do so and find Angela and Abby. Also, Angela is posing as Megan through a fake profile…. The conclusion is that having her artwork admired was something that Angela craved after she married and had to let go of her art career to take care of her children.
Angela only wanted someone to admire her work and to be able to do art again. But imagine it was someone more nefarious, someone, who could have tried to scam Nev out of his money. This movie sounded incredibly interesting when I read the short summary at first. It struck me completely out of the blue. Let me tell you why:. The movie is about a young girl who meets this older man online. They meet and she actually roofies his drink. Apparently, a girl her age had been kidnapped a while ago and our main protagonist — Hayley — believes that the older man — Jeff — is the culprit.
Even after Jeff takes his own life, the young girl decides to expose him to the world. A movie that tackles sooo many serious points. Although they both knew each other beforehand hence why Hayley wanted to go out with him, and why he wanted to meet her too they had to use Online Dating to outsmart one another in the beginning.
Now that was a real rollercoaster of emotion. Year: Directors: Nora Ephron Country: the United States Cast: Tom Hanks , Meg Ryan , Greg Kinnear Theme: Two business rivals who despise each other in real life unwittingly fall in love over the Internet.
In the film, there are two bookstore owners who are rivals. Joe Fox, from the Fox family which owns Fox Books, is a direct rival to Kathleen Kelly, who runs a small independent bookstore left from her mother.
The two actually meet online in a chat room under anonymous names and begin a relationship together. In the real life, they both grow to hate each other since they are rivals, but online their love grows. At one point the two decide to actually take things offline and meet. He decides to not show himself and instead opts to try and fix their real-life relationship first.
After making things up he finally decided to show himself to Kathleen and she realizes the real truth about her rival. Again, you have to be absolutely careful about your Online Dating since the person on the other side may not be who you expect them to be…. Basically, a young writer — Sam — meets a cute street artist and barista — Birdie and falls in love. He then manages to find her Facebook profile with the help of his roommate and starts to message her.
He starts to cook, he buys books by her favorite author, he buys albums from her favorite songwriter. He even makes it so he meets her accidentally at a comedy club and the two become partners at a ballroom-dance class. After some time, she confesses her love for him and a desire to perform a dancing recital where her parents will watch, but Sam gets insecure and turns her down.
Soon after he realizes his mistake and goes back to confess his feelings and that he had lied to her. Again, this only goes to show that you should be extremely careful with anyone you meet online since those people may not be who you think they are.
Year: Directors: David Schwimmer Country: the United States Cast: Clive Owen , Catherine Keener , Liana Liberato Theme: A teenage girl is targeted by an online sexual predator. This movie is a bit on the morally wrong side again. But it just puts an incredibly strong emphasis on the dangers of Online Dating….
After a bit, he proposes to meet at the mall to which she agrees. He suggests they go to a motel and she agrees. There, he makes her try on lingerie that he bought for her and starts to touch her inappropriately ugh!
After she says no he actually rapes her. Even the FBI gets in on the case. Annie tries to move on with her life, participating in a volleyball game at school. There, her father recognizes a man who he thinks is a sex offender and confronts him, making a scene. This puts Annie in a bad spotlight in front of her peers. After that Brittany tells her that people are making fun of her online for being raped.
Her father finds her and brings her to a hospital where Brittany stays for the whole night to mend their relationship. Regardless, this movie teaches us a LOT about the dangers of Online Dating. It also teaches us a lot about the victims. Usually, these people refuse to believe the facts and truth, insisting that their assailants love them.
Basically, be incredibly careful and think twice about every move you make. Things may not look like they appear at first. This movie is about 3 completely different stories that happen online and have dire consequences on the real world. The connection between the 3 are the characters. This makes the movie a great representation of the digital world and its problems.
The film begins with a new reporter — Nina — who is successful in making contact with — Kyle — a teenager who works as a video chat-room stripper. She is then pressured by the police to help them investigate his boss.
Kyle gives her his address; the police find them but they all escape. After Ben does so they distribute them to his classmates which tips off Ben to try and suicide but leaves him in a coma.
Rich finds out about Jessica and then finds out that Jason is behind her. Jason tries to intervene but Rich strikes him with a hockey stick. Mike then punches him which stops the fight. The last story is about a married couple — Derek and Cindy — who realize that their identities have been stolen online. They hire Mike a private detective to investigate. He finds a lead on — Stephen — and the couple starts stalking him. After finally coming to confront Stephen, Mike stops them, informing them that Stephen had also had his identity stolen.
As with almost all movie stories up until now, what you can get out of this one is to never trust anyone you meet online…. Year: Directors: Michael Goi Country: the United States Cast: Amber Perkins , Rachel Quinn , Dean Waite Theme: Two teenage girls encounter an Internet child predator. Megan is a popular girl who has a wide social circle.
And — Amy — is socially awkward. The police drop the investigation soon after because of the lack of evidence, but Amy is certain that Josh is behind all of this. She finds out evidence on him and shows it to the police, but is captured by Josh before they can react. He takes her away and after he opens the barrel she runs since she sees the rotten corpse of her friend Megan.
A true story. Turns out that Mark had been very active in online chat rooms and became close to a woman named — Rachel — who was suffering from domestic abuse. He is then horrified when John tells him that her boyfriend had murdered her. Mark responds to this by trying to plan for a revenge. He starts losing his sanity as he meets another online friend, Janet, who reveals that John is an interest to her organization, MI5.
John had pretended to be numerous people in order to play with Mark for unknown reasons. Year: Directors: Charles Binamé Country: Canada Cast: Emily Osment , Kay Panabaker , Meaghan Rath Theme: A teenager is subjected to a campaign of bullying by classmates through a social networking site.
