Yeah, I couldn’t post a Jack image. It would be too easy to predict. On Sally it would be the same. So I decided to post Pumpkins, making this way a tribute to a big friend.

On the movie, I confess I was expecting more. Probably because I saw Corpse Bride and I loved it, and was expecting more from this. No, not that it is bad. But when you are watching a movie that you are expecting to be bad, without a story, and it surprises you, you get very interested on it. In the other hand, when somebody tells you it is great, and it is not as you imagined, you get disappointed. So, probably this is what happened.

Nevertheless, the story is nice, there are jokes all around, and the animation and characters design are very nice. Voted 8 in 10 @ IMDB.

Big Fish (2003)

Probably it is enough to say that this is a Tim Burton movie to explain why it is in the top 250 movies on IMDB. I am not properly a fan of dramas. It makes us think too much. While that is good from time to time, it also makes me depressed. And this movie makes us think yet more when you have old parents.

But hey, let’s continue on the movie. I mentioned Tim Burton already, right? So, expect fantasy. Lots of fantasy. Also, expect comic scenes. Watch the movie with your heart and mind opened.

Finally, although this movie is from 2003, it is nice to notice that Alison Lohman continues to be beautiful. And she is one year younger that me. Oh, let’s get back to reality… damn
