The Spiderwick Chronicles
Can you ever think that there are goblins, boggarts and orgs all around us and invisible to us all the time - while they could see us. And if we see them, they could sense it. That's what this movie is about. It is basically a children's movie - a mix of "Alice in wonderland" and "harry potter".
I generally love such movies. The concept of the movie itself is non-realistic and that makes the movie more interesting. The author or script-writer can open up his imagination and write whatever he could possibly think of.
The movie starts off with "Mr Spiderwick" writing a book and sealing it to hide its secret. And after many many years, his grand-grand children come over to that place to stay. How they become acquainted with the "other" world and then see the boggards, goblins and the orges. And then they have a mission to save the book from the hands of the big bad shape changing orge - "Mulgarath".
The special effects are good and you probably would sit on the edge of your seat throughout the movie. A movie worth watching...
