Just got back from the new Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe movie. Man, that movie rules! I just read the book (well, all of them) a couple weeks ago (gotta re-read the books before seeing the movies, you know), and the movie is darn close to the book. I can only think of a few things that were left out, I didn’t see any major (but plenty of minor) differences in the primary parts of the movie. In fact, this is one of the few movies I’ve seen where they add a fair bit of content that isn’t in the book – it seemed to fill out the story a bit, since you can’t see what people are thinking on-screen like you can when you read the books.
In any case, I highly recommend it – this is one of the few movies I’ve seen where I don’t come away feeling that they’ve missed out on majorly important parts of the book. It reminds me a lot of the Lord of the Rings movies.
Oh, yeah – Lucy doesn’t annoy the crap out of you in this movie, like the older ones. They got that part right, for sure!
