      In my childhood, I also imagined such a magical and beautiful dream

      I saw that many people in the comments said that it is not good-looking, and only minor children like it. I don't think so. Maybe it is indeed a little naive. The plot is not so ups and downs, and there is not such a big shocking scene, but the story is very warm, The set is very beautiful.

      When the kind-hearted giant took the little girl to the mountain to capture the dream, the scene there really surprised me, it was really beautiful, it seemed like it was too popular, the fireflies...

      Girls and Giants, heart-warming fairy tales, Spielberg movies, of course not to be missed.

      Girls and Giants, heart-warming fairy tales, Spielberg movies, of course not to be missed.
      People always have special feelings for different things: fear...curious...just like the giant in the movie, they are afraid that he will be a man-eating monster, but after getting along, they find that the giant is so friendly and cute. The key point is that this giant can also dream, and he is like a giant version of an angel.
      Then there is a wonderful contrast between the unused worlds. The...

      A good movie but hardly a classic

      The first time I saw this movie was at the beginning of 2017, during the Spring Festival, when my heart was fluctuating, I gave up halfway through it. After watching it again, it was a year later, and this movie is the first movie I watched in the new year. It also counts a debt that has not been completed in 17 years.

      The director of this film is the famous Spielberg, the four major directors of the New Hollywood period, "Saving Private Ryan", "Schindler's List", "Jurassic Park" and...

      giant

      I came home from vacation, turned on the TV, and was looking for a movie to watch, and found this movie. In fact, I didn't have the desire to see the name, but I chose to watch it anyway. The plot is more general and more childlike.

      This movie is about a little girl in an orphanage, Sophie, who fantasizes about monsters appearing at night. She stood in front of the window at night, and she saw a giant. The giant took her to the giant country. The other giants in the giant...

      big friendly giant? or traitor?

      The Disney series seems to be a movie for little kids. But I only started to like it when I grew up and ran three.
      Maybe it was because I was busy reading and taking exams, busy doing "useful" things, and didn't leave a little space for these wonderful things.
      After watching "Big Fish" by chance, I became fascinated by the human imagination. What a wonderful existence these useless things are, making a tasteless life wonderful and infinite. So I made up for the Harry Potter series,...

    Behind the scenes gags

    John Madden originally planned to direct the film, but later he only retained the identity of the executive producer.
    During the launch of "The BFG" in London theaters, Steven Allan Spielberg produced 32 dream catchers scattered across London's scenic spots and commercial centers, and at the same time coordinated with charity propaganda on different themes.
    The title "BFG" is an acronym for the English word phrase "The Big Friendly...

    Evaluation action

    In addition to showing unparalleled skills, Spielberg also skillfully handles the balance between oil painting-like visual effects and low-key narrative in the film. This is the most unique part of the film. All these factors ensure that "The BFG" is a good film worthy of appreciation. This time Spielberg is obviously focused on carving the strange world he created, rather than ambitiously building an unprecedented movie universe   ....M

      Sophie: It was the Witching Hour, when the Boogeyman comes out... when people go missing. The girls say the Witching Hour arrives at midnight. I think it comes at three in the morning, when I'm the only one awake. Like always. Like now.

      Sophie: Never get out of the bed. Never go to the window. Never look behind the curtain.
