This was another film I waited to watch with my wife. I generally enjoy Steven Spielberg movies and it's also Disney. This is the final writing credit for Melissa Mathison before she passed. She also worked on E.T. with Spielberg and has written Indian in the Cupboard and the Twilight Zone movie. This flopped in the box office even though it's a Spielberg movie which shocked me. It could be that t... read more

Back in 2015, Steven Spielberg came up with ‘Bridge of Spies’ but even though it was well received, I thought it was rather underwhelming. Only a year later,  he quickly came up with something new but even though Disney had a record-breaking year, they had a flew flops and this movie turned out to be one of them. Still, since it was the last movie directed by Steven Spielberg, I was quite eag... read more

Esta a sido unas de las peliculas que pude disfrutar durante mi viaje de navidades 2016. "BFG, mi amigo el gigante" son unas de peliculas de Steven Spielberg que son hechas con amor y con gran presupuesto (con mucho, mucho presupuesto), y hasta es recomendable de ver si se admira el genero de fantasia como tal.

¿Pero que fue lo que paso? La pelicula no tuvo suficiente taquilla para s... read more

Ten-year-old Sophie is in for the adventure of a lifetime when she meets the Big Friendly Giant. Naturally scared at first, the young girl soon realizes that the 24-foot behemoth is actually quite gentle and charming. As their friendship grows, Sophie’s presence attracts the unwanted attention of Bloodbottler, Fleshlumpeater and other giants. After traveling to London, Sophie and the BFG must convince Queen Victoria to help them get rid of all the bad giants once and for all.

She also worked on E.T. with Spielberg and has written Indian in the Cupboard and the Twilight Zone movie. This flopped in the box office even though it's a Spielberg movie which shocked me. It could be that the main cast isn't very well known to pull enough interest. So let's get to it. This wasn't a bad movie, but it's a bit of a let down. There are some really funny scenes and the tale itself was interesting enough. The acting was good as well. One problem I had with it though is it was hard to figure out what era it takes place in as it looked like several mashed into one. Another problem is that i” read more

Bml93's Film Experiences for 2017: First Half (72 movies items)

" I'm disappointed to say that I really didn't care for The BFG. There are aspects of it to like and admire, and Steven Spielberg knows how to put together a film. Yet I was never engaged or invested into what he decided to tell this time around. My biggest issue is that I never connected to or cared about the characters. The giant is loveable enough, but the young girl feels like a blank slate. I never managed to latch on to her character. The plot is also unengaging and the way the story turn"
