Chronicles of Narnia

Who's going to see it? I'm going tomorrow...opening day. I love it when we don't have school on Fridays that movies are coming out on. We were off the Friday that Harry Potter 4 came out too...

I don't normally like these kinds of movies, but I have to admit the trailers for the film make me want to go see it.

I saw it late last night. I was hoping for more. Was a little more "childish" than I was expecting but a good movie overall.

The biblical parallels are numerous and blatant. I wish more movies contained a positive message like this one does.

I think the "childish" essence of the film was what was best of it. When it tried to be Lord of the Rings it wasn't as strong. This story isn't about the chase. It isn't about dwarfs who only live over here, ghosts who live over there, hobbits who live over there etc. It isn't confusing...it's straightforward children's fantasy.
C.S. Lewis is one of the greatest writers - great poetry, great prose, great theology/philosophy, great stories etc.

well, the book is "childish"

I'm a big fan of this saga, good movie, I was expecting for a little more, great adaptation, but the fx sometimes seemed like... exaggerated

I'd never read the books, but vaguely remember watching the animated TV version that was on when I was much younger, so I went in not really knowing what to expect, and only had a vague recollection of the story.

It was very, very good. Much better than I had anticipated. Tilda Swinton was great as the witch.

Saw it last night. I think it really does the book justice.

My wife and son saw it Friday and just loved it. I hope to see it soon.

It is interesting that CS Lewis called the books "not Christian-books, but books by a Christian man" and that the alagory was not developed before he wrote the books, but became apparent when he finished the books.

I'm curious to see this, the preview looks interesting.

I've only read this book two months ago (new translation was published here to coincide with the movie), despite hearing about it several times before.
