I think the thing I like most about this new Spiderwick Chronicles poster care of Comingsoon.net is ho9w much it reminds me of one of those old Choose Your Own Adventure books. I really loved those things. They always had this great tone. Mystery and adventure, very serious and oft wandered into danger, and a magic that I've never seen translated really decently to the screen. I don't know that this film can really live up to what the poster makes me feel. Still at least I can enjoy it for a little while.
The Spiderwick Chronicles opens Feb 15th, '08.
