Big Fish Easter Egg - Burton References
This movie is replete with hidden allusions to other movies director Tim Burton has been involved in.
The Nightmare Before Christmas: Right at the beginning, when a number of lures are in the water, Jack Skellington's skull face appears as a reflection in one of the lures on the left. Also, in the field of daffodils, take note of Edward Bloom's (Ewan McGregor's) tie. It's a picture of the curling hill from Nightmare. Last of all, Danny DeVito's hat as the ringmaster is the same hat as worn by the mayor of Halloweentown.
Pee-Wee's Big Adventure: Near the beginning the young Ed Bloom shows a breakfast making device at the science fair. This same device makes Pee-Wee's breakfast.
Edward Scissorhands: The hand device that Ed Bloom sells seems to be a scissorhands allusion.
The Wizard of Oz: Okay, not Burton admittedly, but there are a bunch of allusions to this movie, especially around Specter. When the camera shows all the shoes hanging on the line, there appears to be a pair of ruby slippers hanging on the left. Also, the moving trees that try to ensnare Ed on his way out of Specter seem to allude to the apple-throwing trees in Oz.
Tim loves this stuff, and we love Tim, don't we? I'm sure there's more, but this is the more obvious stuff I've noticed.
