Fantasy and Adventure

1. The Spiderwich Chronicles - I absolutely love this film. I can say that this movie can be aligned with fantasy classics like Narnia and Lord of the Rings. Although the movie is not as huge as them, the great emotional power is there for sure! It has also a family drama that really touched my heart, a kid that is longing for the love and presence of her/his father. It is such a great experience and is jam packed with incredible scenes of imagination, wonder and nail biting suspense. The fantasy characters were well crafted and created enough suspense to keep me on the edge of my seat but not so scary. The existence of a humorous mini monster was such a big help in making such comedic scenes and he blasted the ending! Whew! Galing!

2. 10,000 B.C. - This movie is a great ride that takes you through a sweeping landscape of honor, pride and standing up for one's self and each other. It is also great to see a film that tries to imagine what life was like 1.6 million years ago. The story line is simple, connected by a chain of prophecies told by different tribes' wise people and made happen with little important scenes like the ambush of the giant ostriches and an over super sized tiger. The effects were not that brilliant enough to amaze me but they were believable. This is a movie that you shouldn't miss.
