The Spiderwick Chronicles 2008

description written by member Zara:

When city-raised twins Jared and Simon (both played by Freddie Highmore) move to an old country mansion with their mother (Mary-Louise Parker) and sister (Sarah Bolger), it's quite an adjustment -- especially when they uncover a magical and sometimes dangerous fantasy world. Based on the best-selling children's books, this family adventure populated with all manner of fanciful creatures co-stars Joan Plowright, David Strathairn and Nick Nolte.

The Spiderwick Chronicles Movie Review by Thomas (6/29/2008)

I thought this movie was going to be very childish since it was made by Nickelodeon. Well I was right but it was still a pretty good movie. It had a good plot and some of the special effects were good. I enjoyed watching it and I rarely do with this kind of movie. So I would reconmend seeing it for a fun family adventure...

The Spiderwick Chronicles Movie Review by Ben (2/21/2008)

"The Spiderwick Chronicles" turned out to be a surprise for me. I enjoyed it quite a bit, and unlike "The Golden Compass" which was meant to be the start of another New Line Cinema trilogy/franchise, this feels like a complete movie. And unlike all those other movies where you have the characters traveling to snowy places...

The Spiderwick Chronicles Movie Review by Zara (2/20/2008)

According to my 7 year old daughter, this movie was better than the other fantasy-styled movies because "it had much more less people in it."

I promise, I'm working on her grammar. This is MY kid we're talking about.

And there are less people in it. And the goblins and creatures are really cool. And the action is great....

The Spiderwick Chronicles Movie Review by Jarrod (2/16/2008)

'The Spiderwick Chronicles' is a fun little fantasy that is geared primarily towards children, though it occasionally has creatures and imagery that may very well scare those below a certain age, but for the most part, it remains mild, PG-rated fare. The movie is based on a series of books by Tony DiTerlizzi and Holly...
