Hello everyone! 🙂
I’ve now seen ‘The BFG’, the new film by Steven Spielberg, based on the beloved novel by Roald Dahl. I thoroughly enjoyed this film at the cinema! I remember ‘The BFG’ book as a kid and saw the 1989 cartoon feature film when I was at school. I also remember seeing a theatre production of ‘The BFG’!
It was a long time since I read the book or seen any adaptation of ‘The BFG’. I wondered what this new live-action movie version of the story was going to be like. I have to say I was very impressed with Steven Spielberg’s interpretation of ‘The BFG’ as he has remained true to the spirit of the book.
‘The BFG’ is about an orphaned girl called Sophie who gets captured by the Big Friendly Giant and taken back to his home in Giant Country. Seeing his world of dreams, Sophie befriends the BFG and they work together to save England and stop the menace of the evil giants who want to eat humans.
The CGI effects of ‘The BFG’ are amazing and I was easily captivated into this story. Seeing the film brought back happy memories of ‘The BFG’ as a kid. Mark Rylance delivers a superb performance as the Big Friendly Giant. I’m very agog as to how he looked so giant-like and with those big ears of his.
I also liked Ruby Barnhill as the little girl Sophie, who is the heart and soul of the film. I was surprised to see Penelope Wilton guest star as the Queen in this movie. She’s certainly risen in the ranks from being a Prime Minister in ‘Doctor Who’ to the Queen in ‘The BFG’. It was a pleasure to see Penelope Wilton in this.
‘The BFG’ is a wonderful adaptation of Roald Dahl’s children’s book by Steven Spielberg. I’m amazed with the special effects and the performances of the cast in this. I don’t think a live-action version of ‘The BFG’ was ever made before this film. It’s the children’s film of the year and it’s easy to see why!
I laughed when the Queen; her dogs and everyone else tried the BFG’s frobscottle drink. 😀
Thanks for reading!
Bye for now!
