I managed to catch "The Spiderwick Chronicles" on Monday all thanks to Ripplevox
. Initially I thought this movie was the sequence of Narnia (which is due to show in May) my bad for not doing enough research about it. After the movie what I could say is it manage to stand out on its own. I had a wonderful experience, a fantasy one in fact.
The story takes place in New England, United States, where the twins Simon and Jared and their older sister Mallory move into the Spiderwick Estate left to them by their great-aunt, Lucinda. They discover a field guide to faeries written by the house's previous owner Arthur Spiderwick and soon begin to realise that secret creatures like brownies and faeries really do exist! Mulgarath, a ogre, wants to get hold of the field guide and attacks the children in an attempt to obtain it.Thimbletack, the brownie assigned by Arthur Spiderwick himself to guard the field guide, and a filthy-looking but likeable hobgoblin named Hogsqueal, help them defeat the evil ogre.
The whole show was intense and exciting especially when the evil ogre tries to get into the house. With some hilarious parts throughout the show. I was totally immersed into the fantasy world. I felt like i had bought a ticket to the fantasy world for the whole of 96 minutes and it manage to capture my full attention throughout. I'm sure that for both adults and children they will all enjoy it. However, the image of the creatures are quite scary though, therefore i would advise that young children might not be able to take it. Other than that, I supposed this show caters to almost everyone.
My favourite lines from the show by Thimbletack " I die, you die, we die, Bye Bye!!". He really tickles me with his expression.
This show is not draggy instead it's exciting, funny and has wonderful creative design, which transforms it into a veritable feast for the eyes.Out of 10 I would give it a 8.5. The other 1.5 I'm saving it for the next sequel. Can't wait for it though.
