The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is good. Really good.
At the end of the movie, the entire theater erupted into applause. Did I say it was good?
Narnia also had wonderful comic relief. The Beavers drew a reaction from everyone. As someone who hasn’t read the books, the identity of he-who-gives-the-royals-weapons was hilarious. You didn’t see that one coming!
There’s a good deal of anti-Naria hate in the media, and along with it frantic denials by Disney’s stooges that the movie has anything whatsoever to do with a certain Christian apologist. Anyone who watches the movie and can write, like National Geographic‘s Stefan Lovgren did…
However, Lewis himself said he didn’t set out to write a Christian story, but simply a great children’s tale. His creative influences, at least at the outset, were not Christian, but various mythologies from early cultures.
… is either crazy or culturally illiterate.
But such peevishness is beside the point. The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is a great movie. If Ender’s Game is this good, I will be thrilled.
See The Chronicles of Narnia now!
