Bridge to Terabithia

Strangely enough, this movie would've been better if they had toned down the Terabithia scenes. I know the imagining-everything-and-actually-seeing-it was a way to draw kids into the story, but all of the over-the-top...ness of their world made it somehow less genuine. I used to have something like Terabithia when I was younger, and I remember making up adventures, and so I think I would've really loved this movie if it had just shown the two kids playing and running and talking about what they see in their world without actually seeing it all. I don't know, sometimes seeing the magical world of a kid's imagination works- such as in Where the Wild Things Are, but in this movie it was just a bit silly.
With that being said, this is still a really good movie and the kid actors all did a great job. It reminds you of being nine, and that is a very good age.
