The BFG, New Movie
Just watched Spielberg's "The BFG"...Good special effects but as usual arrogant movie makers manage to take the subtle and the sacrosanct and turn them into the superfluous and the sacrilegious. If you can't write your own story what on earth makes you think you can improve on someone else's?
It's not just that they absolutely butchered the story and the characters - it's that they changed how the BFG spoke and what he said. Why? Is there some kind of agenda here? First it was the Lord Of The rings - The best fantasy story ever written reduced to facile fight scenes for the masses - and now the BFG. Is there some-kind of subconscious subliminal propaganda going on here? Is it Americanization? Whatever it is it's awful.
