The Spiderwick Chronicles Review

First things first, when a movie has 'Spider' in the title I expect to see some spiders!!. What if 'Snakes on a plane' had no snakes!!, or what if 'There will be blood' had no blood!!? It should have been called, 'Fairies & the weird ogre things', mainly due to the fairies and weird ogre things in the film...doesnt take a genius, someone tell that to whoever came up with 'Quantum of Solace' for the next Bond film.
Any-who, the film was enjoyable, but what really rocked my boat was the animation. Some of the background CGI characters were really dodgy but the main CGI characters were very sexy!! well not in the actually meanin of the word but in a "OMG IM LOVIN IT!!! sort of way.
The story was ok, nothing special but pretty much what you would expect. The main attraction is the magical-ness that everyone over the age of 20 wants to remember. Worth the cinema ticket, not really one for the DVD collection........ok ok or the Blu Ray collection smart ass!!
