I, too, liked BIG FISH; I didn't know what to expect and I let the film take me along.  My favorite Tim Burtons are EDWARD SCISSORHANDS, ED WOOD, and SLEEPY HOLLOW, and I found BIG FISH his most emotional film.

Thanks for your email, BK.  It was informative as ever, and I appreciate it.

You're quite welcome.

I'm trying to get up the energy to do some last-minute additions to the book.  Little things I found when skimming through it again.  Adding a few details, deleting some others, fixing some typos, and smoothing some rough bits.

She leaves Millie a couple of weeks into the LA run.

Does anyone know when that is?

Jrand... I just began watching.  I'll check out the listings of episodes.

Ray is a big fan of the rock group YES (I have to sit through them again in two weeks in the cavernous Madison Square Garden).  We have seen the television ads for BIG FISH where the YES hit "See All Good People..." is featured, but according to a YES board he reads, they feature it in the trailer but not the film.  Can one  of you DRs who has seen this film please confirm this.  Why would music be featured in an ad for the DVD of a film and not be used in the film itself?  I know once in a while trailers for movies that have not been completed do this, but you would think there would have been ample time to use actual music in the ads for a DVD of the movie.

What a swell party this is, was…….

I am very glad I stayed up till almost one this morning reading all three hundred + posts from yesterday.  I was delighted to be a part of the festivities.  Reading some of the recollections of finding this site, and the outpouring of friendship and love, got me all choked-up.  Naturally, my cats thought I had gone off of my gourd, since I was sitting there blubbering away in the early morning hours.

What a great group of people, and what a wonderful host!  Gee, today I even love the lurkers.

Thanks MattH. For some reason I have been in the mood for some Brendon Fraser.

I didn't think that DUDLEY was all that bad, myself being a big Brendan fan.  I picked it up in the WalMart $5.88 bin and was shocked to find that it also contains a DTS sountrack!  I'd say if you liked GEORGE OF THE JUNGLE, then go ahead and get DUDLEY, though the latter's jokes are not as frequent as the former's.

So, I watched on dvd:
BIG FISH - didn't hate it, but, didn't love it either. I thought that the circus sequence and the war sequences were the best parts.
THE EMPORER'S NEW GROOVE -DTS soundtrack, David Spade animated is better than the real thing.  Eartha Kitt is terrifyingly good.  Patrick Warburton is a sidekick with loads of gay agenda.
THE LAST WALTZ - not DTS sound, but, awesome nevertheless.
SWEENEY TODD - the sound processing didn't bother me too much, though it makes the audience sound as if they're in the next theater over.

Our local Native-American casino is opening their brand-new addition tomorrow night with a concert in their new showroom by Bobby Goldsboro.  Good Lord, I didn’t even know Mr. Goldsboro was still alive!  Has someone been storing him, along with Walt Disney, inside a great-big chest freezer up above New Orleans Square???

This also happened with the Peter Pan movie that came out last year that played Coldplay's "Clocks" in the commercials though it's not in the movie at all.

Has dear reader Jane gone on vacation?

Trailiers routinely use music that is not featured in the film - either rock songs or scores from other films.

In my DVD player:  "Stavisky" that I just got from eBay...and brand new!

In my CD player:  A Collector's Sondheim (3 CDs of pure Sondheim...up to 1985)

In my VCR:  "Oh Calcutta!"  My housemate wants to watch this sometime this weekend.  I told him that it's pretty bad (even with the nudity) but he's never seen anything like that.

Boy, HOWDY, BK!  We've got 'em stewing over to the FSM Message Board.

While folks think your "Petunia" remark will get you-know-who all het up, I'm afraid my remarks about "1776" have stirred up a hornet's nest with you-know-who and Mr. Paddon who has sanctimoniously decreed his disdain for the DVD (which he has NEVER seen) and declares undying devotion to you-know-who's every word about his laserdisc production of the title.

Yes, Mr. Paddon is a bit of a butt cheek.  He wants a cut of 1776 that was never shown theatrically and that was never intended to be shown theatrically, including shots that were taken from alternate takes which were never in the film or intended to be in the film and which has an overture "added" by the laserdisc producer from various score outtakes.  This somehow is the definitive version of the film because the producer says so, and keeps saying that Mr. Hunt approved everything and that he has the correspondence to prove it.  Of course, he has never offered ONE WORD of the correspondence as proof, we're just supposed to take him at his word.  Now, back then, Mr. Hunt might have been so happy to have certain things restored to his film that he MEANT to have in it, that he just allowed everything else to stay, even the bits that he didn't like.  Mr. joecaps might have been so annoying about it that he merely said okay rather than listening to the ranting of some obsessive and silly fanboy.  I've been in that position, too, you just can't listen to anymoe and you say "fine" even though you shouldn't.

LOL.

Beautiful day today, a bit cloudy, but that's okay.

I didn't like DUDLEY DO RIGHT because Sarah Jessica Parker was not very good....and...well...Leslie Nielson's particular shtick is getting VERY old, but Brendan was okay.
