"I has told you. I is not eating people. Not I! I is a freaky giant! I is a nice and jumbly giant! I is the BFG!" (by WhiteOleander21)
I watched this movie with my 7 year old daughter yesterday, literally 10 times back to back. Not only are the graphics in this movie beautiful but the message is as well. My daughter has been experiencing bullying lately and this movie couldn't have come at a better time. It taught my daughter how to stand up to bully's and not to let them affect or change her. The movie teaches you that it is OK to ask for help. It is OK to be different. It is OK to dream and believe in magic. I cannot understand why someone would give this movie under 10 stars. One of the best Disney movies I have <more>
seen in a long time. "Those who don't believe in magic will never find it."
An excellent movie - ignore the haters (by thecolonade)
This film really did the best job at capturing the essence of the story, great acting, very very good directing. This was a lovely film much better than i expected. I think a lot of the negative reviews it has got come from rather jaded older movie goers who are looking at it all wrong. Its meant to be a sweet tale of magic and friendship, it doesn't need to be darker and grittier, its for kids, its not made for adults to compare it to memories they had of the book. Its a lovely lovely film and this comes from a 36 year old horror fan who has a hangover, this film will stand the test of <more>
time mark my words. Remember the original willy wonka got bad reviews when it came out.
Roald Dahl's The Big Friendly Giant (by cultfilmfan)
As a child, whenever I read one of Roald Dahl's novels, or short stories was an absolute joy for me in every way possible. I remember one birthday in particular where I was probably 9, or 10 years old and I received the book, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and I remember each night coming home from school and even during school such as on lunch breaks, or at recess reading this book along with various other Dahl favourites I don't think there were ever any I didn't like and just completely falling in love with the books and the author's writing style itself. I credit <more>
Roald Dahl as an author who inspired me to read at a young age and now 20 years later, I may be reading different material, or sometimes more mature fare, but it was because of Dahl and his wonderful imagination, witty sense of writing and sometimes delightfully dark and yet humorous stories that made me continue to want to read and added some escapism and pleasure to a childhood that was mostly good, but especially helped out in the more turbulent times because I could escape into one of his books and put away my childhood worries and cares for a time. I eventually sought out many of the film adaptations that were made of his books such as Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, The Witches, Matilda, James and the Giant Peach, Fantastic Mr. Fox and now The BFG and because Dahl was so expressive with his writing and could completely transport us into other worlds, manners of speech and over the top yet fascinating characters, all of the above mentioned films were complete successes and I would like to add that Steven Spielberg's new version of his classic The BFG fits along with those classic titles and should become a hit with both adults and children and belongs with the very best of the genre. Spielberg here teams up with his E.T. The Extra Terrestrial screenwriter, Melissa Mathison who as any kid who grew up in the 80's, or 90's can tell you that E.T. was a staple in their childhoods and I remember myself that whenever I had a pick of a film at the local video store at that age, that E.T. would most likely be the first film I would pick up and bring home, even having seen it for the umpteenth time. I also know people who watched their VHS copies so much that the tapes themselves wore out from so much use. The sign of a much loved item. Here again over 30 years later, Mathison and Spielberg are still able to create magic and a long lasting classic that will both appeal to adults and the youngest of children. It has been close to 20 years since I last read The BFG, but watching the film, everything came back to me and it was like I was discovering one of my childhood treasures all over again. Mathison's screenplay which is full of wonder and amazement and also takes us into a new world with wonderfully rich characters, Dahl's wonderful mangling of the English language I mean that in the best way possible and also wonderful lessons for children such as about friendship, bullying and believing in yourself. The film also most importantly is a lot of fun and I was in an audience that was laughing when the film was funny and even close to tears in the beautiful and sentimental moments that didn't feel false, but felt beautifully captured and enriching all the same. The special effects are kept to a minimum and what we do have visual wise is so beautiful and truly spectacular to look at that it is one of the most visually pleasing and stunning films that I have seen on the big screen in quite some time. The acting by Mark Rylance, Ruby Barnhill among others is terrifically expressive and yet they seem to have a great time in this film and we are along every step of the way with them and when they are having fun, so are we, when they are scared, so are we and we connect with them and love being with these characters and watching them. Truly a beautiful film that is a wonderful and fun time for children, but beneath the surface also teaches valuable life lessons and truths and encouragement that every child needs. One of the best films of this year and one of the best family films of this year, or really any other. Highly recommended.
Firstly this is not your average Spielberg movie, it's more of a feel good family movie. The reason people hate this movie is because they are comparing it to a proper Spielberg movie. I think Spielberg was trying to do something different this time for kid viewers. My family loved this movie and if you hated this movie while you're reading this, just give it another try. Lot's of people think this is very immature because of it's fart jokes, I was counting how many fart jokes there were surprisingly there were only four in the entire movie. The director has had a few bad <more>
movies recently Indiana Jones and the kingdom of the Krystal Skull etc. Basically what I'm trying to say is that this is a good movie and it is too much hate.
I don't get the bad reviews here, were they watching the same film? or maybe they have lost touch with their inner child. I loved this film and I'm not a kid I'm a 55 year old bloke. The film follows the book faithfully and keeps hold of Roald Dahl's odd humour well. The girl playing Sophie is an excellent Northern British actress who plays the part very well and is well cast, the giant character is funny, magical and full of warmth and charm with the CG very well done. Sure its a kids film but as such it is a very good one, if you want more adult material then don't watch <more>
kids films but if you like magical fantasy with humour and great visuals I recommend the BFG wholeheartedly.
The BFG began as an imaginative book by Roald Dahl about a giant that captures and saves dreams so that he can bring happiness to sleeping children and adults as well. The movie begins as the BFG is seen by the cute-as-a-button insomniac orphan Sophie. The BFG takes the terrified Sophie gently from her orphanage bed and spends the rest of the movie bonding with her, precious soul to precious soul. My family one teen, one "tween" loved the movie. The story is about trying to live a kind and gentle life in a world that is not always so kind or so gentle. The BFG has his tormentors, <more>
and Sophie becomes his little supporter, encouraging him to deal rightly with his problem. Likewise, the BFG looks out for Sophie who needs all the love she can get. The movie tells a most unique tale that will keep you involved until the end. There are some giants that might be a bit much for preschoolers. I did see a two year old crying when they appeared. The BFG is a fun and warm movie with laughs and a fine message. Great fun!
I do understand that people are disappointed when watching a Kids movie and expecting an exciting and challenging plot. What is wrong with you guys? Just because it says Steven Spielberg doesn't mean this is a movie that is specifically designed for your needs. I am 30+ and I like this movie a lot, watching it from a kids perspective you even understand the breakfast scene and I bet all kids would laugh at it. It is kinda sad, seeing how incapable some people are recognizing a movie for kids as such. This is a proper 8! I like the accent, the CGI is fitting, the story is for kids, so if <more>
you are not a kid, stfu. I can fully recommend it to anybody with an open mind, who is not looking for the kids version of an Captain America Civil War CGI fest.
First off, I'm not a huge children's movie fan, but this one was just so charming and cute I couldn't help but like it. The real star is the BFG. The funny way he talks and the emotions on his face really made the movie for me. The little girl does a pretty good job as well. This isn't the kind of movie you watch for the story. It's simple enough, but does the job. It's more for the interaction between the girl and the giant, and in that department the movie delivers. Sure there were some childish jokes, but there were plenty of other moments that made me laugh out <more>
loud without involving body functions.I don't get why so many people hated on this movie. Where they expecting Schindler's List? This wasn't that kind of Spielberg Movie. It was more about the interaction of a child and magical friend, akin to ET - and while it may not be quite as good, I still got a lot of enjoyment out of it. If you don't think you're going to be a stick in the mud about it, go ahead and give it a watch. You might end up being surprised at how much you like it, just like I was.
I loved this adaptation, it is charming, funny and engaging. I've read some pretty scathing reviews, saying it's Spielberg's worst film - or one of, and I couldn't disagree more. It's really a kid's story, dressed up as a family movie. It's also a simple tale, requiring a simple plot and that is what you get, along with some Spielberg magic. The gas scene in Buckingham Palace is one of the funniest I've ever seen - it was hysterical! If you want to get all serious and pick fault with the plot line, you shouldn't be watching this kind of movie. It's a <more>
fantasy movie, involving some.... well... fantasy! There were some stereotypical British elements, which to us might be a bit overdone, but Spielberg isn't British. Whoever is slating this movie's plot and the movie in general obviously doesn't remember: E.T, Back to the Future; Poltergeist etc, who's plot lines were crackpot in the extreme. BFG is what it is... a lighthearted and delightful fantasy, which kids and adults will adore together.
