    Surprised everyone has taken against this so strongly. It's Spielberg at his most shamelessly sentimental and earnest, but it works for the source material and the film just feels so well-intentioned and heartfelt. Both Rylance and newcomer Barnhill are fantastic, and the imaginative twisting of the English language throughout adds an extra layer for adults to enjoy. The BFG's monologue towards the end is one of the most effortlessly poignant and touching moments I've seen in a kids film in some time:

    This is one movie I can say if you loved the book, you'll love the movie. So much of the script was pulled directly from the book which I thought was wonderful! It's one of my favorite books of all time and I think it was a great film adaptation. I thoroughly enjoyed it. 5 years 3 months ago

    This was really a shame :( I'm sad it kind of 'spoiled' my memories of both the book and the earlier movie. I do think that the way the character of the BFG is made and his face is amazing! but I'm really sorry, it felt like there was no real story telling going on.. disappointed.. 5 years 2 months ago
