The Reviews for The Secret of Moonacre (2008) 720p


Well worth watching for the costumes and the sets!Reviewed byTheLittleSongbirdVote: 8/10

First of all, I am 17 and I absolutely love the book "The Little White Horse" by Elizabeth Goudge, with its beautiful imagery, memorable characters and above all its magical story, and I do agree the book is better than the film in many ways. In fact, the Little White Horse is probably my favourite book of all time. I think the film Secret of Moonacre is a beautiful film, that unfortunately is undermined by one or two problems with the story, and doesn't quite capture the magic of the book.

The film looks absolutely exquisite, with those gorgeous costumes and the lovely sets with the huge menacing moon. The music by Christian Henson is gorgeous and very fitting with the scenery. Gabor Csupo, the director of Bridge of Tarabithia, which is admittedly better, obviously has an eye for art, as he used to be an animator. Other directors that have directed visually stunning fantasy films are Ridley Scott with Legend and Guillermo Del Torro with Pan's Labyrinth.(which is the best foreign language film I have ever seen) Whoever trained the animals, must be told he/she did a truly remarkable job.

The acting is very good, an obvious standout is Dakota Blue Richards of Golden Compass fame in a strong central performance as the protagonist Maria Merryweather. Juliet Stevenson and Andy Linden provide the comedy, with the jokes about indigestion, and whizzing quickly around the kitchen. Tim Curry brings a touch of melancholy to an otherwise menacing and complex character, and it made a difference after seeing Curry in over the top roles such as FrankNFurter and Wadsworth. Though, if anything, I wish Curry had more screen time. Natasha McElhone looked lovely as Loveday, with a lovely face that sometimes defies her when she is cursing for instance. Though I will confess I wasn't entirely convinced by Ioan Gruffodd as Sir Benjamin. In the book Sir Benjamin is fat with three chins, which is a far cry from the gorgeous Gruffodd. I am not saying he was bad, he wasn't. He was very brooding at times, but other times when he looked uncomfortable. That I can understand, because since I have participated in operas with similar costumes,(like the Magic Flute) I do know from experience they can be very uncomfortable to wear.

The story I do agree takes a while to get going, but the book takes one or two chapters to explain the story, which isn't a problem as it is called character development. The basics are all there, the Moon Princess, the pearls and the battle of good and evil, but a lot was changed from the book, and one or two of the characters were changed, and others like Old Parson were left out entirely. I was prepared for a lot of changes when I saw this film (they do it all the time), and although I was fine with most of them, I was annoyed that Maria and Robin's relationship from the book was virtually eliminated, as that was one of the book's main merits. The ending was a bit rushed, I am putting a huge emphasis on the bit, but I liked the underwater sequence very much.

All in all, a flawed but hugely enjoyable film (not the best fantasy I have ever seen but a solid attempt) that is well worth watching for the visuals. 8/10 Bethany Cox

Thoroughly enjoyable, for adults too (just about)Reviewed byChai MasonVote: 7/10

I have to agree with all the other reviewers here - some very good reviews except for the two who went to premier and seem to have left them starstruck (moonstruck?) and ebullient about the use!! of!! exclamation marks!!!

In some ways, like CS Lewis and JK Rowling the narrative in the book (which I only know the story from the film) does seem to have a particular patchwork quality, many elements from old fabrics sewn together. Of course this is how stories have always been written not to mention the inherent structure needed for a story to be successful, a structure that has existed since language. So some of it seemed a bit old but that's what you need to sell something to a sometimes fickle audience. It was so great looking however that it almost made up for it. The sixth star of this review is for costumes, the seventh for set pieces so it's a 5 star really. The metalwork was particularly ornate.

The performances were all pretty much architypical regarding the actors previous casting, though it was interesting seeing good old Gruffudd getting grumpy again. It's true that Curry had little screen time though he was very antagonistic - but soon calmed down at the end (it is a children's film after all). The chef and the nanny were great and I liked the young guy who played Robin.

The animals (magic ones) were present as always, the obligatory unicorn and the lion from CS Lewis - though this lion was cooler that Aslan, he was BLACK. Having never seen or thought about a black lion before, this is now my favorite animal. Apart from bunnies. And I'm sure he could have kicked Aslan's ass (I've never been keen on CS Lewis and his stories have always annoyed me since I was a child but hey, we gotta live with them cos he was Tolkein's mate and he was well connected to get his rubbish printed and because of its popularity many people think it's actually good).

Sorry, rant over.

So it you're a parent - definitely get this for your children, you'll probably be able to bare watching it over again unlike horrific Di$ney films &c. If you're and adult ans you liked Stardust and Compass, you'll probably like this too, though it's not quite as good though it's better than Terabithia, which is just a children's film really.

I'm glad the fantasy films are back, there was a real dry patch in the nineties. But the key question is - WHEN is someone going to make a proper film of The Wizard of Earthsea? (I know there is a Canadian TV movie - it's awful - and the Ghibli film 'Tales From Earthsea', but it's not a proper telling of any of the books and it's directed by Goro and not Hayao Miyazaki so it's not even that good. Ah well. Read that Wizard of Earthsea if you've not, it's pretty much the foundation for Harry Potter and maybe Pullman's books as well though I'm not sure. Wizard of Earthsea is the greatest magus-topic novel I've come across because it's authentic. The thing is the mass will always desire the crass... *sigh*

not for fans of the bookReviewed bylouannmitchVote: 5/10

This film is not for people who have read the book. I loved The Little White Horse and was excited about it being made into a film but was very disappointed.

They changed a lot of the characters. Sir Benjamin's personality was completely different and Robin's origins and relationship with Maria was completely different. They also gave away some things right at the beginning which you are supposed the discover later. There was a lot of changes to the plot as well they need to make it much longer to fit everything in.

Having said that, if you haven't read the book, it's probably a perfectly enjoyable children's fantasy film. It is certainly visually stunning.
