The Spiderwick Chronicles  

Posted by: ~ames~ in , ,

Movie Description from Yahoo! Movies: From the beloved best-selling series of books comes "The Spiderwick Chronicles," a fantasy adventure for the child in all of us. Peculiar things start to happen the moment the Grace family (Jared, his twin brother Simon, sister Mallory and their mom) leave New York and move into the secluded old house owned by their great, great uncle Arthur Spiderwick. Unable to explain the strange disappearances and accidents that seem to be happening on a daily basis, the family blames Jared. When he, Simon and Mallory investigate what's really going on, they uncover the fantastic truth of the Spiderwick estate and of the creatures that inhabit it.

Starring: Freddie Highmore, Mary-Louise Parker, Nick Nolte, Joan Plowright, David Strathairn

My Grade: B++

What a magical movie!! A wee bit slow to start, but once the brownie, Thimbletack, makes an appearance, Spiderwick quickly picks up. There were a few scenes that had me a little bit freaked out, but it was all in good fun. And the visuals were amazing! And Hogsqual, the hobgoblin (voiced by Seth Rogen) was pretty funny.

Definitely a must see if you enjoy fantasy movies.
