Movie Review: ‘The BFG’ [VIDEO]

Director Steven Spielberg is back in theaters this summer with a live-action adaptation of beloved British children's author Roald Dahl's 'The BFG'. The Big Friendly Giant is portrayed this year's Best Actor Oscar winner for Spielberg's 'Bridge of Spies', Mark Rylance. It's a wild ride through Great Britain, with places like Giant Country and the real Buckingham Palace.

The BFG uses 'giant speak' which invokes wrong syllables on common words, and you may have heard or read this kind of speak in Dahl's 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory'. Here's a clip.

Hartford Native Kirker Butler Releasing First Novel “Pretty Ugly” [VIDEO]

The first time I heard of Kirker Butler, I still knew him as Kirk, it was more than likely through my Dad. He had Kirk as a student at Ohio County Middle School in the early 80s. When I first saw him, he was onstage with my Dad in a Hartford Courhouse Players production of another Kentucky native Jesse Stuart's play 'The Thread That Runs So True'. That was a LONG time ago. Now, after finding success behind the scenes as a TV writer/producer ('Family Guy', 'What I Like About You', 'The Cleveland Show', 'The Neighbors', and most recently, ABC's 'Galavant') Butler is releasing his first novel "Pretty Ugly" this week and it centers around the world of, get ready for it, child beauty pageants!
