||Witches - A great movie!|
The witches is a great movie for kids of all ages, especially those who loved the Roald Dahl book. It starts with a boy (Luke) and his grandmother talking about how to spot a witch and the things that have happened in her home village in Europe. As the story continues Luke meets a witch and recognises that she is one by the description given to him by his grandmother, needless to say the good always win in the end, so I won't give away too much of the storyline, except to say that they meet the grand high witch and she isn't very nice! She wants to turn all the children of England into mice!! My children and I have been looking everywhere for this movie and finally we got to see it, I will recommend it to everyone who likes children (and witches) just so they are able to spot what a real witch looks like!

||Nicholas Roeg and Henson|
This is basically a children's movie directed by Roeg with some effects by Jim Henson. The effects are largely secondary but when they are utilized, they work very well. The film is not bogged down with them as with other Henson films. It has a creepy quality that balances the 'kiddie' factor out nicely. It is a great looking film as well. Anjelica Huston is great, as is the wise grandmother (can't remember the actress's name). It had been quite awhile since I saw it (in a theatre), but it was great to watch again even on the small screen.
