Decent Films’ review of The Chronicles of Narnia

Stephen Greydanus’ detailed review of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe perfectly sums up my conflicted thoughts about the movie:

[F]or those who’ve never read the books, or who remember them only dimly, the taste of Lewis’s story and themes afforded by the film may well be a revelation, and they may wish to seek out the books after seeing the film. Viewers who know the books, too, will return to them after seeing the film, grateful to the film for what it adds to them, and to the books for what the film leaves out.

And for more Narnian fun, check out this heated debate over at Looking Closer concerning the differences between the The Chronicles of Narnia and the Lord Of The Rings films.
