When the Queen is in residence, the Royal Standard is the flag that should be flying above Buckingham Palace. In this film, it is the Union Flag. This should only fly when the Queen isn't at home. It used to be the case that the Royal Standard should be the only flag above the palace and when the Queen was away, there would be nothing. However, there was an uproar following the death of Princess Diana as Queen Elizabeth II wasn't home so there was no flag to put at half mast. Since then, it's the Royal Standard when she's in, and the Union Flag when she's away. See more »
It was the Witching Hour, when the Boogeyman comes out... when people go missing. The girls say the Witching Hour arrives at midnight. I think it comes at three in the morning, when I'm the only one awake. Like always. Like now.

I don't get the bad reviews here, were they watching the same film? or maybe they have lost touch with their inner child. I loved this film and I'm not a kid I'm a 55 year old bloke. The film follows the book faithfully and keeps hold of Roald Dahl's odd humour well. The girl playing Sophie is an excellent Northern British actress who plays the part very well and is well cast, the giant character is funny, magical and full of warmth and charm with the CG very well done. Sure its a kids film but as such it is a very good one, if you want more adult material then don't watch kids films but if you like magical fantasy with humour and great visuals I recommend the BFG wholeheartedly.
