Narnia

We saw this yesterday. I thought it was really good, especially the exchange where (after they find the ransacked faun's house) Peter says, "We need to call the police!" and one of the girls says, "These were the police!" (Not exact wording no doubt.)

However, no matter how brave etc. they depict it, I can't help but think running your outnumbered troops into hordes of monsters is a rather silly use of men and materiel. If I were King Peter I would've proudly said, "Run and hide! Later we'll attack the White Witch's supply chain!"

  1. Yes, this latest rendition of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe was very good. It stuck to the main points of the plot with only minor alterations as were necessary to avoid the cumbers of following the book exactly. The characters were well cast. You rarely see a movie of comparable quality these days; Lewis himself would be proud. And I hope Disney and the rest of the crew get together for at least some of the other books in the series.
