It's like an After-School Special version of "Pan's Labyrinth ," and I actually mean that as a compliment. Read full review
Bridge to Terabithia the movie, like the book, is buckets-of-tears sad. Director Csupo and company manage to get that - the simple power of a story about kindred souls, about loss, about the limitless possibilities of a lively mind - just right. Read full review
