The BFG is no ordinary bone-crunching giant. He is far too nice and jumbly. Its lucky for Sophie that he is. Had she been carried off in the middle of the night by the Bloodbottler, or any of the other giants—rather than the BFG—she would have soon become breakfast. When Sophie hears that the giants are flush-bunking off to England to swollomp a few nice little chiddlers, she decides she must stop them once and for all. And the BFG is going to help her!

  • Why is this getting so much hate?

    November 6th, 2016

    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, ...

  • I liked it

    November 27th, 2016

    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 unde...

  • lovely movie

    December 23rd, 2016

    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 pa...

  • Lovely family movie

    November 28th, 2016

    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 (...

  • Simply Delightful

    December 15th, 2016

    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 enoug...

  • Needs Better Editing But There's a Number of Positives Here

    December 10th, 2016

    I'm also quite surprised by all the negativity thrown at this film. Yes, it does have its slow spots and could certainly use better editing, but it can be quite wondrous, humorous, and has some important messages to relay as well. . I thought the scenes with the Queen (Penelope Wilton) were highly imaginative, funny, and warm-hearted. Both Mark Ry...

  • "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!"

    November 5th, 2016

    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 ...

  • Not a total failure, but a rambling, timid effort to bring a difficult book to the screen

    February 11th, 2017

    It's been a whopping 25 years since Steve Spielberg's last real children's film, when he disappointed children and adults alike with his Peter Pan re-imagining Hook. After a long period of going back and forth between monochromatic, Oscar-wary history lessons and crowd-pleasing blockbuster fare, Hollywood's most famous director is back trying to w...

  • A nice adaptation

    December 28th, 2016

    I remember reading this book as a kid and I was glad that it go the proper film adaptation that it deserved. While the film version forgoes many of the darker elements from the novel but it does stay faithful to the story, the premise deals with ten year old orphan Sophie who is living in an orphanage in London who dreads staying there, one night ...

  • i liked it
