FYI, I like Big Fish quite a bit. I like a lot of Tim Burton's films. Along with Big Fish, Ed Wood and Pee Wee's Big Adventure are particular favorites. I'm not so keen on his remakes. My wife is the complete opposite. She tends to really enjoy a lot of his remakes and doesn't seem to be as thrilled with my three favorites. I did like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory though.
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. - C. S. Lewis, English essayist & juvenile novelist (1898 - 1963)
