It's a supernatural movie about some kids growing up. I preferred the BBC version, but this one was good in a more modern-type of way.

Danny DeVito, Mara Wilson, Paul Reubens - I also never read Roald Dahl's Matilda. This is really a fantastic movie! Definitely fits more into the 'fantasy' genre....beautiful scenes; very colorful! And, wow! What a cast!

Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Christopher Lee - Being one of the millions of Johnny fanatics, I ate this up. Don't get me wrong, the other one is still a classic, but this one was closer to the book (yeah, I'm one of THOSE people).

Nick Nolte, Seth Rogen, Mary-Louise Parker - This one was just cool. Just so cool. Also based on a book series, this film stars Freddie Highmore and Freddie Highmore doing the 'Parent Trap' thing by playing believable twin brothers! I would see it for his acting alone.

Judy Garland, Margaret Hamilton, Frank Morgan - A house falls on a witch and then we battle evil flying monkeys, tell me that's not supernatural.

Alec Baldwin, Winona Ryder, Geena Davis - I consider this one of Michael Keaton's best roles. And the young Winona Ryder plays a great Lydia. The cast alone is worth seeing this one for. :)

The NeverEnding Story Franchise I can't imagine NOT having seen this movie....classic fantasy at it's best. Flying dragon (who somehow manages to look like a large dog), all sorts of fun creatures and let's not forget the kingdom that desperately needs to be saved! Lovely.

Adam Sandler, Courteney Cox, Carmen Electra - Okay, this movie is just fantastic. Lovely blending of comedy, action and fantasy. If you like Adam Sandler at all, you will love this. Also, the kids in it are wicked cute. And the guinea pig, oh my god, the guinea pig...

Nicole Kidman, Eva Green, Ian McKellen - Another book-turned movie. Same applies...if you've read the book, you'll be sorely disappointed. If not, enjoy this wonderful piece of entertainment that is beautiful to watch and has stunning performances!

Kathleen Turner, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Steve Buscemi - We have all known that place in our childhood...the creepy place with a story that probably isn't even true. But you still don't actually go there..........just in case.

Kristen Stewart, Josh Hutchersonm, Tim Robbins - This movie is based on a book written by Chris Van Allsburg who also wrote 'Polar Express' and 'Jumanji'. If that's not enough to get you to see it, it stars Kristen Stewart of 'Twilight' and is directed by Jon Favreau, director of the 'Iron Man' series. Yeah, I name-dropped.
