‘The BFG’ Cannes Review: Steven Spielberg, Roald Dahl Have a Great Character, Not a Great Movie Steven Spielberg + the wonder of childhood. What’s not to love about that cinematic equation? In fact, there’s a lot that could be scary about it. Sure, the combination worked wonders decades ago with “E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial,” but what about anything from the last 24 years?
