Big Fish (2003)
Directed by Tim Burton
Metaphors in Big Fish 🐠 - Big Fish is the life story of Edward Bloom. The last name is a metaphor. Bloom is exactly what Edward does, just like a flower. He was born, he reached the height of his splendor, and then, little by little, he withered.
- The fish is the unifying thread in the movie that is there from beginning to end. It is the metaphor of Edward himself. When he was a child, he read about a fish that changed size depending on its surroundings. When free, it could triple in size.
Edward understands that he is like the fish and that his limitations in life are like the fishbowl. Keeping with the metaphor, if we escape the fishbowl we are free, we can determine our course, and achieve greatness. At the same time, leaving the fishbowl can be terrifying because we don’t know what’s out there.
- The town Edward Bloom was born in, named Ashton, is his fishbowl. It is a small, limited town for a man of his hopes and dreams. The fishbowl is our comfort zone. It represents conformism. It is the place where we feel safe and it’s hard to leave. However, in our fishbowl our opportunities for learning are limited. That’s why Edward decides to face the unknown and leave his fishbowl.
- The town "Spectre", in spite of the fact that it is a wonderful place, is still another comfort zone.
Edward plans on staying, but he changes his mind and keeps moving. He still has a lot to see
With Big Fish, Tim Burton wants to say that each one of us is capable of doing extraordinary things if we manage to conquer our fears, leave our comfort zone, and carve our own path.

Review for Barry Season One (First Aired March 25, 2018 on HBO)
First time watching the show and Streamed on @hbo.
Created by: Alec Berg and Bill Hader 🎬
Stars: Bill Hader, Stephen Root, Sarah Goldberg, Glenn Fleshler, Anthony Carrigan, Henry Winkler. ✨
A hit man from the Midwest moves to Los Angeles and gets caught up in the city's theatre arts scene. 📝
Good: Season one of Barry does such a great job and mixing dark comedy with drama and crime so well and made it look easy. I’ve always been a fan of Bill Hader, but after watching him on this show and knowing he created it as well, he’s become one of my favorites working today. The character Barry is handled so perfectly and you find yourself rooting for him throughout the whole series and you forget at times that he’s a hitman killing for money and Hader plays him perfectly. The supporting cast fits so well within the story but the standouts from the supporting cast are definitely NoHo Hank and Gene. The show does such a great job of keeping you on the edge of your seat, and at times remained me of the show Dexter, in all the best ways.
Bad: It wasn’t that the episodes were bad but it did take me about 2/3 episodes to really get locked in and really get into the shows tone.
Final Thoughts: So glad I finally got a chance to watch this incredible show. The scripts are great, the show is hilarious but dark at the same time, and I’m so excited to start S2! Highly recommend you giving this show a watch if you haven’t already! 4.5/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Do you watch Barry? What did you think of Barry Season One?

“Meryl Streep once told me she ‘borrowed’ my hair in « The Devil Wears Prada » I thought it was a massive compliment. I saw a picture of her playing the role and thought, ‘Oh yes, that is my hair’”
- Helen Mirren on Meryl’s hairstyle in « The Devil Wears Prada »
After watching « Cathrine The Great » on HBO, I watched a lot of interviews with Helen. She’s the cutest and most elegant person ever. So this is a Helen Mirren appreciation post💘

OMFG YESSS!!!!!!!!! YOU PEOPLE HAVE NO IDEA HOW EXCITED I AM!!!!!!!!! I'm gonna miss getting hype for a new Episode in the Skywalker saga every 2 years. It's always the best and because of these December releases, Christmas will always put me in a huge Star Wars mood. Like em or don't but for me, the Sequel trilogy is amazing so far. Unpopular Opinion, The Last Jedi is a GREAT movie. Anyways, TROS HYPE!!!!! | #StarWarsTheRiseOfSkyWalker

Tale about a fictional relationship between William Shakespeare and a young woman who poses as a man in order to star in one of the writer's plays. Suffering from writer's block, Shakespeare is in need of a new muse. He soon finds inspiration in the form of a beautiful female aristocrat, but her daring determination to act in his play puts their already forbidden relationship on even more dangerous ground.
Carrey, 57, and Gonzaga, 35, played love interests on the #Showtime series “ #Kidding ,” later taking their on-screen romance to the red carpet by making their debut as a couple during the #GoldenGlobes in January.
Dunaway is regarded as one of the greatest and most beautiful actresses of her generation, as well as a powerful emblem of the New Hollywood.
Joan Crawford praised Dunaway in her 1971 book, My Way of Life. "Of all the actresses, to me, only Faye Dunaway has the talent and the class and the courage it takes to make a real star."
Director John Huston, who played Dunaway's father in Chinatown, stated in a 1985 interview that he found her to be "quite extraordinary".
Robert Evans, who produced Chinatown, also described her as "extraordinary", and affirmed that "no one could've played her part as well".
Elizabeth Snead wrote in her review for USA Today of Dunaway's memoirs that she was "the epitome of a modern, mature, sexy woman" and Mark Harris of Entertainment Weekly felt that "Faye Dunaway is a rarity in the land of stars (and star bios) — a tough, smart, committed pro".
Stephen Rebello of Movieline wrote in a 2002 article, "Though fiercely modern, an ideal female analog for screen machos like Steve McQueen and the young Jack Nicholson, she also radiated the stuff vintage movie stars are made of. Any actress today would be lucky to have a fraction of her films on her resume."
In 1994, Dunaway was ranked 27th by People Magazine on a list of the 50 most beautiful people and in 1997 she was ranked 65th by Empire Magazine on a list of the 100 top stars in film history.

Fall is here! I love running in all the leaves 🍂🍂🍂 •
Famously demanding, with an attention to detail that sometimes drove costars and directors mad, Dunaway believed she was often mistaken for being as cold and calculating as some of the women she portrayed. Her clashes with Roman Polanski on the set of Chinatown earned her a reputation for being difficult to work with. Upon the release of the film, Polanski told a reporter for Rolling Stone that he considered Dunaway "a gigantic pain in the ass", but added that he had "never known an actress to take work as seriously as she does. I tell you, she is a In his 1996 book Making Movies, Sidney Lumet slammed Dunaway's reputation for being difficult as "totally untrue", and called her a "selfless, devoted, and wonderful actress". Director Elia Kazan described Dunaway as "a supremely endowed, hungry, curious, bright young talent", and added: "Faye is a brilliant actress and a shy, highly-strung woman. She is intelligent, and she is strong-willed." Like Lumet, Kazan felt she was not difficult, but a perfectionist who was never satisfied. "The artist is rarely, if ever, satisfied. The artist is frequently grateful and intermittently amazed, but he or she is never satisfied.
God is in the details. I want to get it right. The fact is a man can be difficult and people applaud him for trying to do a superior job. People say, 'Well gosh, he's got a lot of guts. He's a real man.' And a woman can try to get it right and she's 'a pain in the ass.' It's my nature to do really good jobs, and I would never have been successful if I hadn't.
