Spiderwick Chronicles

Ashli went to a birthday party for her best friend on Saturday.  Ashli wanted to see Spiderwick Chronicles so we talked to the girls mother about taking them both as a present.  So, Monday morning we load up the car and pick up her friend. After a stop at Dollar Tree for candy and drinks, we head to the theatre. 

There were some good previews.  Saw the Indiana Jones preview, which left me less than impressed.  Speed racer was shown but I had seen this one at Alvin and the Chipmunks.  Nim's Island looks like it is going to be good and we have the book at home. 

Spiderwick was pretty good.  It is a kids movie for sure.  There isn't any adult humor or anything like that.  The parents in the movie are going through a divorce.  There is lots of fantasy violence with green goo blood being splattered around.  Ashli said it was scary but that she liked it.  I really liked the ending to the movie.  There are twins in the movie and they are played by just one person.  I understand that this is done with relative ease, but why not hire twins for the role.  All in all it was a fun family movie that kids will love.

  1. i put it on my netflix queue. 😀

  2. I never think to stop somewhere else for candy and drinks, much less the dollar store… They always have all those cult faves there…

  3. It was very good i was suprised because fantasy films come a dime a dozen the music almost reminded of willow although willow is better.But it was good but still in my mind nothing will ever beat LOTR for fantasy films.
