"'...I didn't cause a scene. I don't know why the usher asked us to leave.'
'Gordon said it was because you started talking very loudly in the middle of the movie, saying it wasn't at all like the originaly book...Gordon is still mad because he didn't get to see how the film ended.'
'He didn't need to see the end. I told him how the book ended and it was so much better than the movie. They even changed the hero's motavation. Can you imagine? That movie was such a travesty that I couldn't help getting upset.'" ~ Wonderland Creek - by Lynn Austen

Book vs. Movie: The BFG

Hello Everyone!
I just saw The BFG a few days ago and I'm so excited to review it for my first review!!! So let's get going! It might seem a little weird how I'm doing it, but I haven't had much time to think about ways of doing it without spoilers.

The BFG (The Movie 2016):
Based on The BFG by Roald Dahl
I can see that they put a lot of work into it. It has lots of double meanings to it that are really fun to look for especially spiritually, for me. I really enjoyed seeing the story I really like on screen. A few of the scenes were sort of confusing for me (compared to the book). Besides the fact that they took out one of MY FAVORITE parts of the book!!! But I recommend it. I know that some of the names of the characters are creepy, but READ THE BOOK FIRST. Always.
Costumes: 9, They were pretty good to me, one or two characters could have had better I think.
Script: 8, In some ways I think they could have been closer to the book, but they wanted to make sure that you got the idea.
Directed by: Steven Spielberg
Produced by: 
Steven Spielberg,
Frank Marshall,
Sam Mercer
Screenplay by: Melissa Mathison
Music by: John Williams
Mark Rylance as The BFG √ Perfect!
Ruby Barnhill as Sophie * Eh, I thing my little sister would have been better. She was rude and too tall!
Penelope Wilton as Elizabeth II √ For the year they put it in. For the book *Eh,WAY to old.
Rebecca Hall as Mary √ Good!
Rafe Spall as Mr Tibbs * Could be older
Jemaine Clement as the Fleashlumpeater * Too skinny
Michael David Adamthwaite as the Bonecruncher √ Great!
Adam Godley as the Manhugger * Too skinny!
Jonathan Holmes as the Childchewer √ Great!
Paul Moniz de Sa as the Meatdripper √ Great!
Chris Gibbs as the Gizzardgulper √ Great!
Bill Hader as the Bloodbottler * TOO SKINNY!
Daniel Bacon as the Butcher Boy / Pretty good.
(Sorry there are so many, they're all important!)
Good Quotes: Let me think about this.
Story: 5 I know, It's harsh, but, they took out MY FAVORITE part of the book! But not just that, they took out and ADDED things (I really don't like it when they do that).
Overall rating: 8


The BFG by Roald Dahl (The Book 1982):

I want to thank my sister for making me read this. It's one of my favorites!!I just think this is a wonderful and inspiring story everyone should read! That's all I can say about it (for now).
Characters: 10! This book has such great characters for you to love and hate!
Elizabeth II
Mr. Tibbs
Words: 10! I mean, If you have ever read a book by Roald Dahl you will know what I mean. He uses such words that are so fun to say and use!!
Storyline: 9! Death is mentined a few times. This is such a fun book!
Overall rating: 9.5!

The BOOK wins!!!
This was so fun to review, read, and watch! I hope you all will read it and then see it too!!
