Can't help but fall in love with #TheBFG #Movies #Review #ad

Disclaimer: I attended a screening of The BFG. No other form of compensation was received. Opinions expressed belong to Whirlwind of Surprises and are NOT influenced in any way.

I initially had mixed feelings before going to the screening of The BFG. Especially as it comes just a week or so after Finding Dory, which has been very much anticipated by many Disney Pixar fans, I couldn't decide whether I wanted to go based on the trailers I had seen and I wasn't sure if my husband wanted to go with me or not. Less than half an hour into the film, I realized that I was really glad I had decided to go to the screening. In fact, I was certain that my husband would regret not coming with me and that he would enjoy the film just as much as I would. The BFG is a MUST SEE because you really can't help but fall in love with The BFG and the beloved Roald Dahl story. Plus, it's directed by Steven Spielberg (see the clip for his thoughts on directing this film!).
There are so many aspects that make The BFG a great film.
The awesome characters: Sophie and The BFG make for a great combo. In a sense, they are both people that don't quit fit in and were looking for a family to call their own. The BFG's "Gobblefunk" is somehow delightful misspoken English that keeps you wanting more. My favorite was "Whizspopper" but you'll have to watch the movie to find out more. They just kept me laughing.

Humor: There is humor around every corner of The BFG. I loved how they made fun of mundane life and even the life of royalty. I'd rather not get into spoilers but gosh, there were times when I couldn't hold my laugher back!
Heart: It's so brilliant how little Sophie dreams up a plan to save the day and at the end of the day, we come back to the precious lesson that love comes in all shapes and sizes.

Filmography: Well, the pictures and scenery is just breathtaking and gorgeous. Some of the scenery is quite awe-inspiring and the 3D experience made it that much more beautiful.

Adventure: Every little trip felt like a grand adventure that the audience felt a part of. The imagination and flow was absolutely spellbinding.
