The BFG: Movie Review

by Sheryl Wall

Special coupon for Dinuba Platinum Theatre at the end of this review.

BFG is based on the novel written by Roald Dahl in 1982. It starts out with a10 year old girl named Sophie at the orphanage. She has insomnia and is up in the middle of the night when everyone else is sleeping and is looking out the window when she spots a giant hand. Unfortunately, because she has seen the giant he kidnaps her for fear she will tell everyone and cause everyone to come after him to kill the big giant.

Sophie is afraid that she will be eaten for dinner. But after spending some time in the giant's home she realizes he is a friendly giant and they become friends. She names him BFG (Big Friendly Giant). She learns that in the past there was a little boy who also became friends with BFG but because of the not so friendly giants the boy is no more.

BFG is a dream catcher and on their journey to catch dreams Sophie drops her blanket. All the other giants are not friendly and want to have her for dinner and they wreck the friendly giant's home in search of her. Sophie and BFG must find a way to defeat the mean and angry giants before it is too late.

BFG is a fantasy like no other. It is slow in some parts, but overall it's very entertaining and takes unexpected turns. I really liked the scene when BFG and Sophie are catching dreams at this large tree by the water. The dreams remind me of many rainbow colored fireflies. It's just a peaceful yet beautiful scene. The graphics are amazing and it's really cool how BFG uses his cape to hide in the shadows in the human world whenever he spots someone coming down the road or out of their house. The mean giants I found to be the typical portrayal of big and scary giants and was a bit too unreal. Overall BFG is a delightful movie that is fun for all ages.

BFG is currently playing at Dinuba Platinum Theatres 6. Showtimes can be found on their website. Platinum Theaters Dinuba 6 now proudly presents digital quality films in 2-D and 3-D with 5.1 Dolby digital surround sound to maximize your movie experience.
