Movie of the Week: The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

If I was 10 years old:

This was like The Lord of the Rings for kids.

I didn’t hate it but the story had too many holes and “huhs?”.*

But if recognized that if I was a young child, I would have thought it was on the level of Dark Crystal or Labyrinth.

The acting was good especially Tilda Swinton (White Witch) & Georgie Hensley (Lucy) and the whole Christian allegory was not as bad as some people made it seem.

The CGI was okay. I feel like they put all their energy making Aslan (The Lion) look realistic that everything looked bad by comparison.

Out of curiosity, I know they get a lot of cardio work but is there such a thing as a overweight centaur?

And, um, why the hell was Santa there?*

*No, I have never read any of the books.

  1. want some chicken?

    i agree there were too many holes and not enough character development. i felt like i waited 2hrs and 10min for an anti-climatic battle scene. i’m gonna have to see king kong to make myself feel better.

  2. OK, he was in the book.

    But his appearance was arbitrary and unexplained.

    He just showed up.

    Deus Ex Machina.
