    I just love to read and I go on binges where I read five or six books in a row in about a three week period and then I slow down for a while. There are so many books to read right now. I am pretty sure Big ish is at the top of that list!

    Just got home from seeing it tonight.

    What a wonderful movie!

    I cried when Will carried his father down to the river.

    I was also riveted by the whole idea that Jennifer was an old witch to him as a boy and yet a little girl to him when he was older. She shows him how he dies when he's a youth, and she is young when he actually does die! Loved it!

    Now I gotta read the book......

    OK, this movie seems to be having good reviews . Now just waiting for it to hit Singapore. After all, this movie took over Lord Of The Rings: Return Of The King off the top of the box office.

    The visuals are pure Burton.

    The story is told in the surreal way that Edward Bloom told them, so having Burton's macabre/surreal hand in it isn't way out there.

    I'm a fan of pretty much the whole cast!

    I just saw it this afternoon. I really liked it...great acting, good visuals, intriguing plot. The end was sad...I'm glad he heard his son tell him the ending of the "story." I didn't realize there was a book. I wonder how the author came up with the story though. I mean, it's definitely unique.

    I just watched it today and I liked the ending How william was finally able to tell a story, complete with all the flavour and excitement I must say I liked the movie better than the book, seeing how they tied up everything eg. the funeral. In the book, it ended with edward becoming a fish- stumped me. Seems to me the movie was a lot clearer than the book. Maybe I ought to read it again

    But I didn't get the part about Jennifer and the witch. Are they one and the same person? William said it was impossible cos' edward met the witch when he was young. I didn't catch what she said

    Reminds me of Tom Robbins books - Still Life of Woodpecker and Even Cowgirls Get the Blues. Have to rent that one as it was made a movie by Gus van Sant and perhaps Breakfast of Champions, by Kurt Vonnegut.

    BTW mdrio9 - like the av. Is that the new Amy Acker? - missed this weeks episode.
