What a great movie! I loved the cast, especially Georgie Henley (Lucy). I just loved Aslan. though I thought he was rather small. The scene at the Stone Table could be frightening for younger children. I think the movie deserves five-stars. One of the best films ever!

Good long books to read! 10 out of 5

I watched this movie twice. Once alone and once with my very talkative friend. I enjoyed it more watching it with my friend. I don't often get emotional about movies, but this film had one character that got on my nerve as well as my friend. That little kid (edmund) i think is his name, couldn't keep his mouth shut. Informing the "White Witch" want she wanted to know. And that had my friend screaming at the television. That's when you can tell if a movie good or not. Watching and hearing my friend bang on the table cursing out that character. I really liked the "White Witch". She was evil as hell. My friend and i both enjoyed all the characters and the beautiful visual effects of the film. The sound was good and should be heard on your HOMETHEATER. I thought the large battle scene was done well. Filled with all kinds of creatures using many different weapons from swords, stones, arrows, and magic. My friend compared the battle scene to "Lords Of The Rings"!! Which of course isn't fair. I judge a movie on it's own and try not to compare. But i respect her opinion. The film is beautiful and it's part of my collection. I'm giving this movie 4 stars. Beautiful visuals, very good sound, totally cool characters, and a seriously evil witch. A large pizza with pepperoni, sausages, ham, and extra cheese. Plenty of napkins and a large coke.

Far more grown up and interesting story than I expected. Great production values: effects, settings, CGI, costumes are all top notch. The acting was decent, even from the children. I enjoyed this far more than I thought I would and have decided to watch the rest of the series. Compelling family fantasy.

I love the Narnian Chronicles. I realize that, especially since they are fantasies, everyone will have their own ideas about the scenes and characters, so it is hard for someone to make movies about the stories. However, it would be a lot easier, and less wearing on the nerves of those who love the stories, if movie-makers would stick to the books. They do not need to create whole new scenes that never appear in the book. (Or even get referenced. Or that the book's timeline even has space for.) Yes, I can see that film people would want to use CGI to play up a battle scene that occupies very little of the actual book: it's big, it's colourful, and, to misquote the news people, if you can make it bleed, it leads. It is a lot easier to forgive movie-makers for not including your favourite lines or scenes IF THEY DON'T MAKE UP GARBAGE AND WASTE EVERYBODY'S TIME!!! Having said that, I think Tilda Swinton does an interesting interpretation, and the actress who plays Lucy looks to have a good career ahead of her.
