The Spiderwick Chronicles
The Spiderwick Chronicles is the story of a family that moves from NY to an abandoned old house, that was left to the mother. Why the house is abandoned is revealed early on, and the action begins. An appreciation for fantasy and magic helps with this one. A steady pace, brave characters and snappy script, move this story along to a sweet conclusion. The goblins are scary, the ogre even more so and Hogsqueal, pretty darn funny. There are some very intense chase scenes and the ultimate hero was a big surprise. A good, solid fantasy film for the family.
