Craig's Movie Reviews

I love movies. I love writing about them. Hope you like reading what I write.


Spielberg and Dahl? Surely this should be wholesome.

The BFG is based on Roald Dahl’s children’s classic involves a girl as she is taken by big friendly giant to magical place where dreams literally grow on trees.

Big Hand

The expression is wrong. BIG hands make light work.

Steven Spielberg directed this film, teaming up once again with bridges by supporting player Mark requirements, who plays the BFG here. His role is brought to us through motion capture and astonishing visual effect, is bodily proportions stretched out to perfectly resemble the illustrations of the source Tory.

The best effect regarding the scatter is Rose himself. Here he is charming, silly, funny and just adorable all at once.

Yup this is what people will remember most about this film, but the girl I mentioned earlier, named Sophie (played by Ruby Barnhill) is a real fight to. She has all the marks for a child an adventure story. She’s wide-eyed and charming, but is able to do stuff herself. A good little performance.

Story -wise this film is properly stripped down. This no other kids no hiding from grownups storyline. It knows exactly what it is and 60 is a story of a lonely girl befriends a belief giant the narrative is how they stop those things.

In this way is very reminiscent of stupidly film. Once again to act to, things just start happening. Moments of character, fart jokes, humanity. It is all rather sporadic, but it works thanks to the strength of the characters.

The film also looks fabulous. The fantasy locations remind me of the better parts of Tim Burton and Peter Jackson’s worlds under real-world setting is satisfyingly like Harry Potter.

This movie was so lovely and wholesome, timely grades I have in their inconsequentiality, are need of highlighting.

In act three certain things that are stripped back would have benefited from remaining there. Untidiness would be a bit more intimidating if we saw all the evil things they do. However, that may be part of the big joke.

That’s what I can put some of this movies issues down to. A bit of a joke on the pathetic villains of this piece. Who cares that the final conflict is short? The baddies are morons!

So is this a kids film with which does all the right things, no more and no less? Yes. Yes, it is.

Can properly say that my recommended scenario.

Recommended Scenario: See my penultimate paragraph.

Interesting trivia, this is the first time ever Spielberg has worked for the Disney Corporation!
