The film follows a young girl named Sophie who lives in a world where giants lurk in the shadow of the streets of London. Sophie befriends an affable dream collecting giant she names The BFG. From there Sophie is introduced to the world of giants in Giant Country and finds that her presence there requires her to warn London that not only do giants exist, but that the unfriendly giants are coming.
When the film was first announced, it seemed like there was no way it could fail. Steven Spielberg directing, John Williams scoring, backed by Disney, etc… however, the film opened to mixed reviews at best and left many wondering what had happened. Watching the film again, I think its important to clear your mind and saying that this film is not like any other children’s film. Sure there’s the usual slapstick humor and wonderful CGI, however, the film is a lot more complex in that there are many thematic elements that the film touches upon. The expectation may be an action-packed adventure, however, we’re met really with the friendship between a little girl and a simple-minded yet complex giant. Themes such as loneliness, the shortness of life, and bullying are all touched upon here. Stepping back, one can see the intent behind the film and its possible to appreciate that this is different.
As for the home release, once again, we can expect a superb 1080p picture with DTS-HD audio. The scenes from Giant Country really shine and the details look amazing. Various featurettes are included in this film including a making of video, a short about the friendship between Sophie and the giant, and a Giants 101 bit where you meet the giants.
YouTube user James Hunter created the now viral video of Barron Trump that suggests he could have autism, and is now responding to the possibility of a lawsuit from Melania Trump over the video’s implications.
“I’m honestly kinda scared right now. The only reason I made the video is because I saw how much social media was bullying Barron Trump, and I wanted it to stop. I’d be really sad if I’ve made the situation worse, but I never could’ve imagined that the video would get so much press,” James told Gossip Cop in a statement. “I was just sending it privately to people who were bullying him to explain to them that Barron might be autistic, and that’s it isn’t okay to bully him for it, because I know what it’s like to be bullied for being autistic. But then Rosie O’Donnell shared it and it blew up. I myself am on the spectrum, and I honestly just wanted to bring light to the autism epidemic. I have a lot of respect for Melania Trump. I believe she’s a very smart and I’ll think she’ll be a great First Lady.”

“I never ever meant to hurt her family or her son. If this is actually true, and if I actually see a real statement of her asking me to remove it, I will. I NEVER meant to hurt their family. I just wi[sh] them the best.”
In a letter obtained by TMZ, her lawyer Charles J. Harder wrote, “The video allegedly seeks to ‘stop the bullying’ of Barron Trump. Not true … The video did instigate further bullying by Rosie O’Donnell and others.”
Rosie perpetuated the autism rumor by tweeting and weighing in on if Barron could be autistic. Rosie later wrote a poem to explain why she shared the video.
The footage in the video shows Barron at events very late on the campaign trail, and Melania and her lawyer insist this is all normal behavior for a 10-year-old to exhibit. There is also footage of Barron clapping without putting his hands together.
Melania and her lawyer are insisting the person who posted the YouTube video take it down and apologize.
The 21-year-old model co-hosted the award show and poked fun at the future First Lady during her opening monologue, something that was not well-received by Trump‘s supporters.
Gigi wrote a handwritten letter that she posted on her Twitter account on Monday evening (November 21).
“I was honored to host the AMAs last night and to work with some of the most respected writers in the business. I removed or changed anything in the script that I felt took the joke too far, and whether or not you choose to see it, what remained was done in good humor and with no bad intent,” Gigi wrote. “I too have been the center of a nationally televised comedy skit that poked fun at my actions, and was able to find the humor in it.”
“I believe Melania understands show business and the way shows are written and run. I apologized to anyone that I offended and have only the best wishes for our country,” she concluded the letter.

The 21-year-old model was joined on stage by co-host Jay Pharoah, who did a bunch of impressions, so Gigi prepared one of her own.
“I got through it!” Gigi said while shaking off some nerves after doing the impression. Watch the full opening monologue in the video below!
