The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe




Am I the only one who instantly fell in love with her at first sight, and found himself rooting for her?

Yes, I have read the The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and I knew I was on the losing side.

Two thumbs up (****1/2) even though my girlfriend loses.

No, no I didn't fall in love with her. In fact, she really scared me. However, the movie was AWESOME! I was worried it would lose all it's religious allusions, but it certainly didn't. I think Lucy was phenomenal. I mean, of course the book is still better but I was impressed.

I haven't seen it yet. When my son gets home from college, our family will see it together.

I was glad to hear that one of our local tv stations said it was so good that you needed to pay full price and see it in the theater. And that's from a liberal station.

I find it sadly amusing that Jeb Bush is being sued for violating the principle of separation of church and state because he chose the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe for Florida's reading selection for December. Give me a big, bleedin' break!

I bought tickets a week ago for opening night. I absolutely LOVED the movie! It followed the book better than I expected which is always a grand surprise and Jeje is right....didn't lose any of its religious allusions (I think mostly due to the fact that Douglas Grisham had his hand in the entire project). I will see that movie at least as many times as I have read the book....which is quite a few.

Sorry I didn't fall in love with the witch either and cheered when Aslan ripped her face off in the end! :)

Gosh, David, I don't know, maybe we should start worrying about you. . .

Well, ya know. When she fed Turkish Delight to Edmund, I wanted to be him. How can you resist Turkish Delight?

We were a little too busy on the weekend to go but the whole fam has read the series (3 times for me). Good to hear you liked it.

Not so sure about your choice in women...

My daughter just got home from college so we'll be seeing it tomorrow night. I'm guessing David you like evil blondes dressed in white who gives out candy to little boys. Interesting.

Okay, so I guess that answers my question. Nobody else has hots for the Witch, and that is Okay. You guys don't know what you're missing out

David we really must do something about your taste in women.

Just home from seeing the movie and was pleasantly surprised. I was a little worried about trusting Hollywood with C.S. Lewis but they did a great job. I think Jack would be proud.

Speaking of Jack .... an added bonus was the trailer for Pirates 2 :) Different Jack though. ;)
Hmmm ...maybe we should do something about my taste in men too?? You like witches I like pirates. Shameful.

hi! yeah, i guess that witch was attractive but ... sigh. She gave me a cold and now I'm sneezing. So no, I don't like her one bit.

Anyway it was lovely meeting you! I'd like to see your new collection of frosted hello kitty glasses as soon as you purchase them :D

Dave, the witch was attractive looking in the movie. But I wasn't rooting for her.

My wife candidly admitted that she wanted so bad to BE the White Witch. My wife sort of has a thing for getting what she wants....and the White Witch was pretty effective on that point.

She thought the White Witch was awesome and that Aslan's character didn't get nearly as much depth.

I liked the movie a lot. The only thing that sort of made me cringe was the way Aslan's death and resurrection were directed in such a way that you couldn't help but think of cinematic depictions of Christ's death and resurrection. I thought it was a wee bit heavy-handed on that account.
