Aslan Is on the Move

I saw Narnia on Friday night and I must say, it was nothing less than thrilling. That moment when Lucy stumbles out of the wardrobe and into Narnia brought me back to the first time I read the book as a very young child who still believed something like that could actually happen. Mr. Tumnus the faun was absolutely perfect and the centaurs and Aslan looked fantastic. But be warned: this movie is, after all, a Disney film and made essentially for children. If you didn't read the book as a child, you might not find the film quite so entertaining. It's no secret that I'm a huge Lord of the Rings fan and there is still a part of me that would've liked to see what Peter Jackson would've done with Narnia. That said, Narnia lives up to the hype and I'm looking forward to the sequels. --Kim

    I'm with you Kim... I loved it. Especially when Lucy first walked in the wardrobe and walked on the snow and brushed against the trees--just like I imagined it as a kid!
