How we view and use media of any type has changed so much over the years. I’m reminded of that every time my daughter is confused by older technology or shocked by the lack of tech in my childhood (“wait, you didn’t watch videos on the computer when you were a kid? why is that TV a big box, I thought they were all flat?”).

Disney’s The BFG was my surprise hit of 2016.  The story is a childhood favorite for many, so I expected the movie to be good. What I didn’t expect was for it to be great – which it was.
