COMPETITION: Win The BFG goodies with Spark Film Show!

Written by on 11th August 2016

To celebrate the release of the magical big-screen adaptation of Roald Dahl’s classic story The BFG, Spark Film Show are giving away some awesome prizes, courtesy of Oddyo.

The prize pack contains a Giant-Ears headband, a copy of The BFG book, a Giant Pencil, a Branded Notebook and some Gobblefunk Fridge Magnets.

The BFG (Mark Rylance), while a giant himself, is a Big Friendly Giant and nothing like the other inhabitants of Giant Country. Standing 24-feet tall with enormous ears and a keen sense of smell, he is endearingly dim-witted and keeps to himself for the most part. Giants like Bloodbottler (Bill Hader) and Fleshlumpeater (Jemaine Clement) on the other hand, are twice as big and at least twice as scary and have been known to eat humans, while the BFG prefers Snozzcumber and Frobscottle. Upon her arrival in Giant Country, Sophie (Ruby Barnhill), a precocious 10-year-old girl from London, is initially frightened of the mysterious giant who has brought her to his cave, but soon comes to realise that the BFG is actually quite gentle and charming, and, having never met a giant before, has many questions. The BFG brings Sophie to Dream Country where he collects dreams and sends them to children, teaching her all about the magic and mystery of dreams.

Having both been on their own in the world up until now, their affection for one another quickly grows. But Sophie’s presence in Giant Country has attracted the unwanted attention of the other giants, who have become increasingly more bothersome. Sophie and the BFG soon depart for London to see the Queen (Penelope Wilton) and warn her of the precarious giant situation, but they must first convince the Queen and her maid, Mary (Rebecca Hall), that giants do indeed exist. Together, they come up with a plan to get rid of the giants once and for all.

At The Film Show, we really enjoyed The BFG! It’s certainly one of the better family films this year and we couldn’t help but love Mark Rylance’s performance, made possible by the extraordinary advances in motion-capture technology.

The Film Show airs every Friday at 10am. This week, we’re talking all about Suicide Squad. It has turned out to be incredibly divisive amongst fans, critics and even us at The Film Show. This week’s episode is available to listen to early in the Mixcloud player above. If you want to weigh in on the conversation, be it about Suicide Squad or anything film-related, you can tweet us @LRJFilmShow or find us on Facebook.
