| I Felt Like I Was 10 Again!
I watch new releases every weekend. I have seen almost every major film released this year. Narnia far outdoes them all. I was carried away by the breathtaking views, the powerful emotional undertones, and simply the fantastical nature of it all. I never thought a movie could capture the book I loved so much as a child. This one did so, far surpassing all my expectations. In all my years of watching movies, I have never been more enraptured with a film. Such a beautifully filmed, well-acted movie ... there are not enough adjectives to express how much I enjoyed this movie. It was well worth going to the midnight showing! I won't write a summary, or my take on the story as a whole, as I'm afraid I would give away too many plot points. Suffice it to say, if you loved the book, you will love the movie. If you've never read the book, you will still be swept away by the grandeur of the story, as well as the gorgeous film-making.

Trivia

Professor Kirke presents three choices to the other Pevensie children of what to think about Lucy's claim about Narnia: that she is lying, that she is mad, or that she is telling the truth. C.S. Lewis was a vocal advocate of Christianity, and in his book "Mere Christianity" presented three similar choices about Jesus' claim to be the Son of God: Liar, Lunatic, or Lord. This is known as his "Trilemma" argument, and is still often used by Christians today.


Quotes

Mrs. Pevensie: Edmund! Get away from there! Peter!
Mrs. Pevensie: What do you think you're doing? Peter! Quickly, the shelter! Now!


Goofs

When Aslan is resurrected, Lucy takes out her dagger. Aslan tells her to put it away. In the next shot her dagger is sheathed even though she never sheathed it.


Crazy Credits

There is a further brief scene with Lucy and the Professor after the initial cast credits.


Alternate Versions

The original theatrical version of this film was released by Walt Disney Pictures, but all television, video, and theatrical re-issue versions of the film are distributed by 20th Century Fox. As a result, the current version in circulation opens with a 20th Century Fox logo. This happened as a result of Disney deciding against its distribution deal when it expired in 2010; Walden Media sold its share of the rights to 20th Century Fox that year.
