* The Spiderwick Chronicles - Fantasy movie based on a series of kids books. Looks vaguely interesting. Geeks really do rule Hollywood now. Added bonus: David Strathairn.
* The Golden Compass - Fantasy movie based on a series of kids books #2. Looks slightly more adult, and with much better cinematography. Added bonus: Ian McShane.
* The Dark is Rising - Fantasy movie based on a series of kids books #3. Yes, seriously. Hollywood, we need to talk. I can barely keep them separate, and I actively try to pay attention to these things. Added bonus:
* The Water Horse: Legend of the Deep - A kids movie about the Loch Ness Monster! That looks like it was made for the Hallmark Channel. If that sounds like your thing, hey, knock yourself out.
* Fred Claus - The trailer didn't look terrible, despite being a Christmas-themed comedy. Casting Paul Giamatti as Santa was a great idea. Still, doubtful.
