A good fantasy film can transport you to breathtaking new worlds and invoke a sense of wonder in even the most jaded person. If you think you’ve seen all the best films in the genre, try one of these hidden gems. In the realms of fantasy, anything is possible – even finding a brand new favorite.
Fantasy is a genre ready-made for surprisingly powerful coming-of-age stories. Stories about the mundane meeting the magical have a natural appeal to adolescent fans.
The Spiderwick Chronicles – featuring Freddie HIghmore, Mary-Louise Parker, Andrew McCarthy, and the voices of Seth Rogen and Martin Short – has mostly flown under the radar since hitting the big screen in 2008. But it’s a worthy entry in this grand tradition.
Based on the children’s book series of the same name, The Spiderwick Chronicles is the story of a family that moves into an old mansion, soon discovering that its grounds are home to a host of goblins, ogres, and trolls.
Much like Harry Potter and The Hobbit delighted fans of all ages, The Spiderwick Chronicles is an adventure that appeals to both kids and parents.
