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.

As I said, I would defy anyone to dislike this film (or any other fantasy/literary film) like I do. This film is a good a fantasy adventure in the tradition of Harry Potter and Bridge to Terabitha. I also I have a nack for fairies.

For a child, moving isn't easy...especially when his (or her) parents had got a divorce. That's happen to young Jared Grace. His father Richard is leaving his wife, Helen. Financially broke, his mom Helen moves him, his twin brother Simon and his big sister Mallory to a New England home owned by a senile aunt, Lucinda Spiderwick. Aunt Lucinda has been institutionalized because she claimed that her father's disappearance was caused by Sylphs (wind fairies). As the children adapt to their new world, Mallory accuses Jared of stealing her fencing medal. There are strange creaks heard from the house walls. One night, Jared finds a secret dumbwaiter and discovers a book with a warning that says; "DO NOT READ THIS BOOK." Of course, Jared reads the book and is introduced to a hidden world dominated by trolls, goblins and the evil orge Mulgarath. As the family outcast, Jared finds allies with the brownie, Thimbletack and frees the hobgoblin Hogsqueal from a fate worst than death. In the end, Jared's new found friends help defeat Mulgarath's evil intentions. Jared also finds Arthur Spiderwick and reunites the father and the daughter.

Admittedly, I don't have a favorite scene, because I love the WHOLE film. I did feel sorry for Jared in the beginning (being a black sheep in the family), until the ending of the movie. He learns about children who have to live without their fathers and also the importance of family -- an age-old lesson I don't mind at all.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Graces June 18 2008
By Amanda Richards HALL OF FAME TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Short Attention Span Summary (SASS)

1. Helen Grace moves into the Spiderwick Estate with her three kids, Mallory, Simon and Jared. Simon and Jared are twins (played by the impressive Freddie Highmore)
2. It doesn't take the kids long to find a secret room, a locked chest and a book marked "Do NOT read"
3. You can guess what happens next
4. Up pops a tiny Brownie named Thimbletack (Martin Short) who changes into a Boggart when riled up.
5. He gets riled up a lot
6. There's an evil Ogre named Mulgarath (Nick Nolte) who commands an army of Goblins, and really, really wants the aforementioned book
7. The Ogre can change his appearance, and is at his most frightening when he looks like Nick Nolte.
8. During the machinations and shenanigans to protect the book, the kids meet a scene stealing Hobgoblin named Hogsqueal (Seth Rogen) who has a talent for expectorating and a penchant for bipedal, endothermic vertebrate animals that lay eggs (also known as birds)
9. The kids set off on a quest to find the author of the book, Arthur Spiderwick (David Strathairn)
10. When they get back, they have to quickly work out a strategy for repelling Goblins and an Ogre who looks like the Grinch on steroids.
11. Exciting yet somewhat disturbing altercation ensues
12. Just desserts are served for the grand finale.

The movie is based on the five books that make up The Spiderwick Chronicles, but barely touches book three, Lucinda's Secret and never touches book four, The Ironwood Tree. There are a few small differences, but for the most part the movie captures the spirit of the series.
