The BFG - Movie Review

"The BFG" is decent at best. Which is a real shame, because it's directed by the greatest and the most iconic film makers of all time. You'd expect more from Spielberg after last year "Bridge of Spies". Coming to think of it, I can't believe Spielberg directed this. Even with all the bright colors and the bizarre adventures, I still felt I was missing something.

But I don't hate the movie. It dose have it's magical and sweet moments that separates it from being a miss fire. Ruby Barnhill as Sophie was pretty good and it proves that there are good kids actors out there. But the saving grace of the movie is Mark Rylance (as the BFG) who really made this movie watchable. Rylance captures the lovable, fun, and joyful giant from Roald Dahl's book. The film itself is tech...

A magical fairy-tale. It'll entertain little kids

"Where am I? Giant country!"

Steven Spielberg knows how to bring the magical world of Roald Dahl to life on a screen in a masterly way. Occasionally I need to watch a not too complicated or weighty film. Such a film that takes you to an enchanting, carefree world and to forget about everyday worries for a while. This time it's a lovable little girl, Sophie (Ruby Barnhill), who after seeing the big friendly giant wandering through the dark streets of London is kidnapped by him and taken to Giant Country. Just like Mowgli in "The Jungle Book", Sophie is surrounded by computer-generated animations. But not completely. The face of the BFG looked quite familiar. Afterwards I discovered that Mark Rylance, who recently starred as Rudolf Abel in "Bridge of Spies" ...

'The BFG' Has a BIG Heart

'The BFG' is the kind of family fantasy we need nowadays. It's brimming with wit, charm, gleeful humor, emotional depth, and great characters. Spielberg has found his signature "magic" again; that indescribable marriage of emotion to visuals one can only ascribe to his previous works. His style feels genuine again. I was brought back to a childlike state while watching this magnificent fairy tale. Spielberg manages to maintain a constant state of pure wonderment throughout. I was sucked into this world right from the opening scene and I never left - thanks to the two main characters played excellently by Rylance and Hall. The bulk of the story mainly focuses on the growing friendship between the pair. Rylance is incredibly endearing as the 'BFG'. Everything from his appearance, t...

Zum Glück wendet sich Steven Spielberg nie ganz ab vom Märchen. Zum Glück hat Spielberg auch nicht vor, nur noch ein "ernsthafter" Regisseur zu sein. Diesmal verfilmt er Roald Dahls Kinderbuchklassiker eines Mädchens mit ihrem riesigen Freund. Ein Märchen über einsame Kinder, abwesende Erwachsene und die Kraft der Träume. Typisch Spielberg. Dahls Vorlagen entbehren aber auch nicht der Freude am Anarchischen und das war Spielbergs Kinderfilmen bisher fremd. Wir dürfen also gespannt sein! Sophie (Ruby Barnhill), ein aufgewecktes Mädchen, das in einem Londoner Waisenhaus lebt, wird eines Nachts aus dem Bett geholt. Eine riesige Gestalt, der BFG (Mark Rylance) nimmt das Kind mit an einen magischen Ort. Dort führt er ein einsames Leben als Aussenseiter. Die anderen Riesen verachten d...
