THE BFG!!

The Big Friendly Giant, thats what BFG stands for in the movie. And Once again Steven Spielberg has lived upto his reputation by bringing fantastical elements and creatures into everyday life.
And ofcourse the credit needs to be given to its two central Characters, the BFG played by Mark Rylance and Sophie which is very well played by Rubie Barnhill.
She's fully developed as a character, but her maturity is lovingly balanced with her regular, child-like ways. This is a welcome change, since "mature kids" in movies and TV shows can often seem sassy and unrelatable.
The movie is Based on Roald Dahl's beloved fantasy book, and it is about the sweet friendship between a Giant, and an orphan girl, Sophie who lives in an orphanage.
The movie has a dark tone, and tense moments of peril and danger punctuate the story from the beginning. After Sophie is kidnapped, she expects the Giant to cook her for dinner, but it turns out that he is a Big Friendly Giant, who has no such intentions. But there are others, who love to eat children; these bad giants played by Jemaine Clement, Bill Hader, Olafur Darri Olafsson and Adam Godley are destructive, loud, and scary when they're on screen.
One of the scene shows the Giant plant a nightmare in Sophie mind, while she's asleep, in order to make her believe him about the other bad giants.
In one scene, the BFG plants a nightmare in Sophie's mind when she sleeps just so she'll believe him about how truly bad the other giants really are.
While the scares are enough to keep the littlest audience members away this tale about discovering friendship and family in the unlikeliest places also offers sweetness, humor, and heart -- as well as themes of courage, empathy, and perseverance.
So for a movie, that has so much to offer, with a dash of laughter and some edge of the seat moments, with some mind blowing performances The BFG gets a 4 star rating.
