While in the nursing home, there are specific details that remind Jacob of his past. For instance, Jacob’s favorite nurse’s name is Rosemary and when he was younger he had a strong connection with Rosie, the elephant, also the circus comes to town reminding him of his past experiences on the circus. Therefore, when he falls asleep or day dreams the narrator transforms to the younger version of himself, telling the story of his life. Jacob reveals that the things that remind him of his past are taking over him and causing him to have flashbacks when he was in the nursing home, about to doze off, “All I can do is put in time waiting for the inevitable, observing the ghosts of my past rattle around my vacuous present”
Burton uses sound in his movies to do exactly that. In his movies, he uses non-diegetic sound to help build suspense and to entertain the viewer. In Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, Burton builds suspense by using very intense music that only the viewer can hear as Jake goes to open a door, thus making the viewer sit on the edge of their seat waiting for the next couple of seconds to define the fate of the character. In Big Fish, Burton uses a dark and menacing musical tone while Edward is fighting with the big fish for his wedding ring back; then, right when he released the fish, the music changed to a mystical and happy tone to express Edward’s triumph and to add to the beauty of that scene. In Edward Scissorhands, the music varies throughout the whole movie.
Then, he showed them the picture that he had and all sisters start looking together to see what develops. Finally, Jing-Mei completes her mother’s dream of reuniting the family and his father was happy to see all of them together. In my thoughts, when I was reading the story, I was thinking about the latest Pakistan movie “Bhaijaan” which is basically similar story as Jing Mei. The movie shows how much the pain one little girl has to go through when she was separated from her family in her childhood. She was going for the vacation with her family and somehow she was separated on the Pakistan broader.
There are many transitions in the film Big Fish. A film transition is a switch between a setting, character, narrator, lighting, music, etc. that helps set the mood, view, and aspects of the film itself. Tim Burton does a phenomenal job of his use of transitions in this film, he is able to make the film well structured due to these. Thus a great transition is that of the swap of narrators throughout the entire film.
It was weird for her as well since the music being played on her favorite show brings her comfort for some reason.

The reader finds himself or herself cheering on LuPone as she struggles through moments in her career and celebrating her success with Sweeney Todd and Gypsy towards the final chapters.

Some readers may have no idea that her first Tony Award nomination was for The Robber Bridegroom, which is currently being produced Off-Broadway. It is worth pointing out again that her sense of humor is highly entertaining.

What I image is that this person who is lying on a hospital bed was doing drugs since the author wrote “with nicotine it's trembling”. This for me make me feel sad because maybe that person took too much and gotten overdosed. In the next line the author writes “we pretended I was just cutting school” the image I get from that line is that this person was not cutting school but cutting himself because we do not really say cutting school we mostly say skipping school, which is really depressing. Now we have the last stanza, the imagery I get from these two lines is that this person who is lying down on the bed is actually in coma because of this line “I hold onto you like an unopened present”. I get this kind of image in my mind because every time you get a present you are always eager to open it you just can not wait, so this other person who is there holding into the one who is in coma is just waiting for the time where that person is going to open his eyes and wake up.

In Big Fish Burton uses flashbacks to show the viewers who Edward Bloom is and how he became the person he is. In one flashback it shows Ed being held down to his bed because he was growing too fast as a young boy and how it taught him that he was meant to be something big and important. By doing this Tim Burton makes the audience feel sorrow for Ed because in the present when he’s telling the story he is again held down to his bed as he awaits death. The audience also feel happiness towards him because this flashback symbolizes that Edward is a big fish. In Edward Scissorhands Burton uses the eye-line match when the inventor first presents the hands to Ed as an early Christmas gift but does not get them, showing that Edward longs to have them.
