Chronicles of Narnia - the lion, the witch and the wardrobe

Simply awesome. These two words can sum up the movie Chronicles of Narnia -the lion, the witch and the wardrobe.
The movie is based on a book by C.S.Lewis which tells the story about four kids who are send up north of England during the Second World war to get away from the Air raids in London. They are staying in the house of a professor and while playing hide and seek the youngest of them Lucy hides in a wardrobe and discovers a fantasy land of Narnia, which is been ruled by a witch. Due to the cruel rule of the witch there has been winter for long time in Narnia and now the long gone away ruler Aslan, the lion is prerparing to rage a war and regain power. The four humans ( the kids) are the ones which will help in wage the war and bring freedom to the place. So the basic premise of the story rests on the victory of good over evil.
But the way the movie is presented with all the special effects leaves one speechless. The british english sounds very sweet and the little girl Lucy Pevensie has given a mind blowing performance.
SO anyone with a childlike curiosity should not miss this movie. And those who liked the movie there is good news since the next installment of Chronicles of Narnia is underproduction and planned for Summer 2008 ( there are total of seven books about Narnia). Can't wait for the next installment.


  • Narnia: The arrival of humans is a sign that Narnia will be freed of the evil rule of Witch. And so, people of Narnia had been waiting, because this was in the foretell, and hence Aslan is waiting (am yet to read the book completely). The children are on a quest now to help Aslan in their war arainst the Cruel Witch. Aslan's return from death was also foretold which the Witch did not understand and lost in the war!

    I think these are one of those series of children's books in the period when other books were on fairy-tales. Similarly the concept behind the "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" one of my favorites.

    I did not like this movie much, as its not that good as the book. Even the plot is somewhat changed (the beginning).

  • Ohh fabulous! I will most definitely make it a point indeed to watch this particular film in my flat over a cup of tea and some biscuits, perhaps tomorrow eeeevening after I return from my daily walk to the Tower Bridge. Thats what I shall do precisely. Cheerio!

  • Yep, movies made over books are most often disappointing since I guess they have to cut out chunks to fit it in a reasonable time frame. Lord of the Rings is a good example. There are HUGE amounts of detailed descriptions in the book, but they cant show it all.

    Do you think Narnia will go down in history with as much fan following as Harry Potter has? (I'm not a fan of Mr. Potter myself though.)
