I completely agree with you mate... the CGI looked stunning, and Rylance IS the BFG! But the girl was easily the weakest thing about the film, and obviously she's one of the most important roles in it, so the fact they got her wrong made the film pretty disappointing.I finally see this and I was very impressed.
The CGI on the Giants is incredible and rylance was absolutely fantastic with his voice and the facial expressions of the BFG.
Jermaine clement also has a great voice in this. Does a good English
Only thing thing that let it down was the incredibly annoying girl. Which is a shame because she's in every scene. She really wound me up with her voice lol and some of her dialogue.
I love Spielberg, he's one of my top 5 directors but he got it wrong choosing that actress
He was so good wasn't he (my mate ran into him at Heathrow a few weeks back in a food place and sat with him at the same table. Him and his mate recognised him but couldn't put their finger on it. Until 2 girls walked past and handed rylance a note. My mate then asked if he knew him from somwhere and apparently he giggled and replied "I'm the BFG" lol. how brilliant is that.I completely agree with you mate... the CGI looked stunning, and Rylance IS the BFG! But the girl was easily the weakest thing about the film, and obviously she's one of the most important roles in it, so the fact they got her wrong made the film pretty disappointing.
It certainly wasn't a bad film though, but I expected a lot more from it, especially with Spielberg being behind the wheel. One of the reasons I love the animated version is because it always felt both magical and creepy to me... whereas this version didn't really have any of that IMO. Shame they decided to leave out all the songs I remember as a kid too.
It was pretty cool to see a road sign (which he used as a tray) in BFG's house with my hometown's name on it though! I just happened to pause it at that point to go get a drink, and when I came back I noticed the word 'Mansfield' in the background... kinda random that they'd choose that town lol.
I have a "4k", "3d" tv ! So why not the same with the blu ray (steelbook or other) release's ????I hate 3D films and so do a ton of other people. And judging by the TV manufacturers (who also don't care much for 3D) it will surely die before 2020.
They really should start including 4K instead of 3D. I'd take better resolution instead of 3D in a heart beat.
There are two types of 3d glasses, one (active) does indeed give certain people headache's. The 3d effect on tv's with active glasses is said to be much better than the passive system (which i have), and it appears to put a greater strain on the eyes giving the old grey matter a problem leading to the headache. The "tech" required to do away with the glasses altogether is almost complete, but will more than likely be apart of the "8k" rollout. To do away with it now and concentrate on 4k, is to bring it up to a more acceptable viewing experience in the near future. At the very least, 3d will give a greater depth perception to a high quality image.I have no need for 3D films and my head starts hurting almost immediately when watching 3D content.
If those stupid 3D glasses wouldn't be necessary I'd be all for it.
Couldn't help but laugh yesterday when my sister started talking about this film and said the exact same thing you did about how annoying it was when the girl says "BFGEEEEE"Film is really good but the little girl ruins the whole experience because she's sooooo annoying
Oh my days I can still hear itCouldn't help but laugh yesterday when my sister started talking about this film and said the exact same thing you did about how annoying it was when the girl says "BFGEEEEE"
