I haven't yet read any of the books, but yesterday I took my youngest and his friend to see this latest children's fantasy book series film adaptation. Here's my short review:
"A thoroughly enjoyable and entertaining fantasy film with the right amount of happiness, sadness, fear and exhilaration."
Here's a little more
- Seth Rogan? Really? Well, I guess he'd done quite a few voices in animated films too!
- My mind never wandered -- I was completely engaged by this film.
- OK -- I did think several times about "The Dark Crystal" and "Labyrinth," but it didn't distract me from this story.
- Great CGI!
- I don't think I'll ever eat honey, tomato sauce or oatmeal again -- without thinking of this story.
- Seth Rogan as Hogsqueal
- Martin Short as Timbletack
- Sarah Bolger as Mallory Grace (I think she's got a long film career in front of her)
Now I get to read the 11 (and counting) Spiderwick-related books!
