LITTLE FISHY STORIES - Big Fish review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

If you enjoy beautiful fairytales, lush cinematography, and watching the end credits with a glow in your belly- this is the film for you. If you hate strung-together vignettes and Helena Bonham-Carter, then avoid this one. Recommended for overcast Saturday afternoons, or the last film in a DVD marathon before bedtime.

Big Fish deserves big accolade - Big Fish review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

I'd been put off this movie by the poor descriptor on the back, but watching it at last, I wished I'd seen it before. A fantastically put together story, keeping you enthralled by the tangental shaggy dog stories throughout the movie. A sad and exciting story all in one, not a tear-jerker, with a real twist in the tale - contains romance, no sex or violence, but never - never a dull moment. Showing that truth can really be stranger than fiction.

Yet another turkey from Tim Burton - Big Fish review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

Despite the lavish production values and a great cast, 'Big Fish' is little more than a random mish-mash of fantasy dream vignettes strung together with a weak and badly scripted story. If you're a big fan of Tim Burton you'll obviously want to see it, though otherwise it's worth giving a miss.
