A little scary

Some key events in the book were left out (ie. big sister being rescued from the goblins lair), but I don't think this took away from this being a fun movie.

I've been impressed with Freddie in his previous ro... read more

Definitely be cautious about taking your kids to see this film. I'm a grown-up and some scenes were quite scary to me!

A new family moves into an old house. One of the twins discovers an enchanted book which brings to life a whole new world of goblins, fairies, and other monsters.

The CGI is well done, the monsters felt very much "alive" and all are quite scary it's s... read more

"Vengeance or death!... Hopefully vengeance."

In tradition with usual children's fantasy features like Bridge to Terabithia or The Golden Compass, I found The Spiderwick Chronicles to be a whole lot better than I originally thought it would be.

"Re-watch - June 15th I picked this for the kiddo and I to watch, and wound up appreciating it a little more the second time around. She really enjoyed it, and got excited when I let her know it's a book series. I dig the mythology of the film, the world-building, and most of the characters. It's not great but it's not as bad as I'd thought previously."
