Narnia

I went to see Narnia! I had mixed feelings over it. I think part of the reason why is that I never read the books, and from the movie, it was clear that there was a lot of context that I missed. So I might decide to read the books.

But I have a couple of other problems with the movie....


First, I have not gotten over Lord of the Rings. In every way, LOTR is how books should come to life on the big screen. And I feel like others (even Star Wars) can try as hard as they want and still not measure up).

Second, there was Lucy. The pig-faced little girl. I wasn't sure if she was supposed to be a human girl or a half-pig half-girl. I will have to read the book to find out. I have a feeling that maybe in future novels, she turns out to lead the pig-human race to freedom in Narnia or something like that.

Third, I was recovering from 3 weeks of holiday partying.


But the animals were cool, especially Aslan. And Mr. Tumlus was cool as well. And it seems that the Brits are becoming better thematic story-tellers which each series they bring to life (Harry Potter, etc, etc, etc)...
