Film #59: Big (1988)
Plot - Tom Hanks is a little guy turned big, who then acts like a kid and makes everyone really happy.
Form - Simple in a good way.
F/X - No.
Acting - Tom Hanks is pretty infantile, so he fits right in.
Mise en scene - There's a lot of really, really cool stuff in Big. Old computers, old toys, old trampolines, old stuff that's cool in general.
Quotables - Don't remember, but I wrote a song for the sequel: "Big 2/Big Twwwwwwooo/It's big enough for me/then it's big enough for you"
Cool stuff - Everything. Piano dancing and all kinds of stuff.
