Double Feature Duel (Final Four): Big Fish vs. The Nines

Double Feature Duel (Final Four):
Big Fish vs. The Nines

The first matchup of the Final Four pits one of my Top Five (and a Father’s Day tradition) against a movie I didn’t even know about but now tell everyone to go see.

Title: The Nines isn’t particularly sharp in this category to begin with and it’s going up against a movie named after one of my nicknames. Tough break, newbie. Maybe Achilles would have had a better shot. (Point, Big Fish 1-0)
Funnier: The Nines was definitely not without humor, but that wasn’t its forte. Big Fish wasn’t exactly a laugh-out-loud production either, but the mood it set definitely tricked me into thinking it was humorous. (Point, Big Fish 2-0)
Better Turn: It’s tough to diagnose a movie’s turn when it’s shot as three vignettes. But this one was kinda easy. It was the end of the first vignette, which produced the first “What the hell?!” moment of the movie. And it definitely brought the audience into the second act. (Point, The Nines 2-1)
Better Ending: I almost started typing “Far and away, the better ending belongs to Big Fish” until I started thinking about The Nines. And it was worth a thought, but there’s a reason I watch Big Fish every year on Father’s Day. And there’s a reason I cry every year too. (Point, Big Fish 3-1)
Better Message: The Nines certainly posed an intriguing question about the nature of creation and thus, God. And though I love the Living Years message played out in Tim Burton’s head, I have to give the philosophical nod to the newbie. (Point, The Nines 3-2)
Better Acting: I do love me some Ryan Reynolds. But I also love me some Ewan McGregor. I also love Albert Finney. But I love Melissa McCarthy too. And then there’s Elle Fanning. But also Marion Cottiliard. This one is tough. And looking ahead, possibly game-changing. And I’m going to have to give it to The Nines. Despite the strange world Big Fish convinced us to believe in, The Nines gave us three different worlds, each of them different and superbly acted. (Point, The Nines 3-3)
Poster: Big Fish. In a landslide. (Point, Big Fish 4-3)
Watch again: The Nines. In a slightly smaller and less horrific landslide. (Point, The Nines 4-4)
More Creative: It all comes down to this. Which is more creative? They’re both top 5 percentile in creativity for sure. Big Fish has two worlds, one very real and based in fact and one very fantastic and based in story. The Nines shows us three vignettes and threads them together to question the nature of what it is to be a God. I haven’t seen either of these things taken to the extent these movies have brought it to. It could really go either way on any given day. But right now, if I had to pitch these two movies in 50 words or less, I’d lean toward the three vignettes spelling out the narrative of creation. (Point, The Nines 4-5)
Overall: It was the battle to the end we all hoped it would be and it came down to a category near and dear to my heart. And even that was a tough decision, especially considering what was on the line. Congrats, newbie. You have earned the respect of many today. Winner: The Nines (5-4)

  1. 一、线切前必须确认程序和补偿量是否正确无误。  二、起切时应注意观察判断加工稳定性,发现不良时及时调整。  三、根据被加工件的实际情况选择敞开式加工或密着加工,在避免干涉的前提下尽量缩短喷嘴与工件的距离。密着加工时,喷嘴与工件的距离一般取0.05~0.1mm。  四、检查电极丝的送进速度是否恰当。  五、检查电极丝张力是否足够。在切割锥度时,张力应调小至通常的一半。  六、加工中因断线等原因暂停时,经过处理后必须确认没有任何干涉,方可继续加工。  七、加工过程中,要经常对切割工况进行检查监督,发现问题立即处理。  八、加工中严禁触摸电极丝和被切割物,防止触电。  九、中走丝线切割 移动工作台或

  5. What I in fact care most in regard to is wellbeing topics.
    On my own, I subscribe to journals that concerns this subject matter, and I continue enlightened about the most recent health lab
    analyses. In what way is this of any use? Personally I think there is no more significant concentration for my time.

    Similarly, this blog page entry seems as if it’s well worth the time to read.
    I dig through thousands or even more of blogs weekly.
    Honestly, my back constantly is uncomfortable and I
    desire a fresh new spare time interest. lol Anyways, I think if absolutely everyone composed blogs about their unique time in the universe, and did it cogently, we’d have a
    more robust Net.
