Big Fish (2003)
Nowhere near as magical as the book.
As soon as I started reading Big Fish by Daniel Wallace, I absolutely could not stop. I was attached to the book and finished it about a week before the movie came out. But I walked out of that theatre so completely appolled and disappointed. So many things were different in a bad way. For instance, Jenny Hill did not live in the strange town Edward passed through, and was never a little girl in the story, not once. He didn't leave her home without having an affair with her in the story. The whole story about his time in the war is different. They left out the greatest parts in the story, and instead of making the beautiful proof that his father's tall tales were real at the end, it was a dream in the movie. And that's not even every horrible mistake. I was just so disappointed. I didn't think Tim Burton did well with this story at all. To me, he's just not as great as everyone thinks he is.
Shakespeare in Love (1998)
Not an accurate movie in any degree
What a horrible pretentious movie. I mean, seriously. I've only seen like five minutes of it and could already point out inaccuracies. 1) Shakespeare married a woman named Anne Hathaway after impregnating her with his first child of three. Did they mention any of this? No. 2) Shakespeare was rumored to be bisexual. Any bisexual encounters? Not sure, didn't watch enough to know. 3) Shakespeare didn't have short, spiky hair. Hair like that didn't come around until 1998. "The greatest love story never told"? How about "The most horribly misleading love story that shouldn't have been told but we went ahead and did because we don't know how to do research"? I can't believe this won Oscars- I'm surprised there was no huge news about outraged historians.
