4.0 out of 5 stars Welcome to the Spiderwick Estate Oct. 25 2012
By Jamie MacDougall TOP 500 REVIEWER
A mother and her three children move into an old family home that is soon revealed to be filled with magic, ogres, fairies, goblins and griffins. Only the long-hidden field guide of their relative Arthur Spiderwick may hold the clues to saving not only the world of the fantastic but the family as well.

Based on the best-selling series of books, The Spiderwick Chronicles is a magical fantasy film that takes on a darker tone than similar family fare. While some of the scenes are no doubt too intense for smaller children, older kids will find a lot to love here, as will their parents. It’s a fun adventure that reminded me of some of the great fantasy films that I grew up with like The Neverending Story, Labyrinth and The Dark Crystal. The special effects are not the best I’ve seen, but they are pretty impressive and the acting is also solid.

The Spiderwick Chronicles boasts great picture and audio quality and an impressive collection of special features that should delight fans. Included are 4 featurettes (totaling about 40 min), Arthur Spiderwick’s Field Guide Feature (available as a stand-alone feature and an in-movie feature), 4 deleted scenes (8 min), 2 theatrical trailers (5 min), and 9 Nickelodeon TV spots (5 min).

The movie will no doubt cast its spell on you with its magical world of enchanting characters and a nice selection of bonus features. Recommended for both families and fantasy fans of all ages.

My son love this movie. Great fantasy theme for an 8 yr old. Scenes were appropriate for his age. Compliments the books well.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too watered-down and cutesy June 29 2008
By bernie TOP 100 REVIEWER
The Grace family (mother, twin brothers Jared and Simon Grace, and their foil bearing sister, Mallory,) a little economically down on their luck and recovering from a nasty divorce moves into a creaky old house left to them by their great aunt Lucinda Spiderwick (Joan Plowright.) Jared (Freddie Highmore plays Jared Grace/Simon Grace) finds Uncle Arthur Spiderwick's"Field Guide to Magical creatures. " This unleashes a plethora of creatures that what the field guide to help them gain their rightful place in the world. Unfortunately their place means the elimination of the Grace family. Naturally mob is oblivious to the threat until it is too real to ignore and too late.

The main theme to the story is of a dysfunctional family that must band together to survive the onslaught magical creatures. This results in each member understanding the other better; now they metamorphose to a co-dependent family.

The set of books that are really one story in five cauterize books of course present a more in-depth story where the children are more cunning and resourceful. There were many compromises as movies must make them to fit the media and time constraints. However some changes were not necessary and down right uncalled for. Hogsqueal the hobgoblin was changed from a cunning creature that changed sides at will until and if his true colors showed, to a squealy revengeful cartoon character.

I will not go into the other characters but also we are not told that the goblin's roasting spit is the family cat, leaving us to wonder if it was the Easter Bunny. And what is with the cuter walking off into the sunset type ending running a chivalrous exit.

Because Blu-ray is just a standard now and everything is made in it there is no reason to go in to the intricacies. The DVD extras are mostly rehashing the movie.
