One of the first proper books I ever read was ‘the lion, the witch and the wardrobe’ and I also enjoyed the BBC tv series of the chronicles of Narnia series including the aforementioned book. It was with intrigue that i went to watch the film adaptation yesterday afternoon. Basically i hated this film. I have heard its a poor-mans Lord of the Rings but i can’t back that comment up as i have never seen or read that series as i have no interest in such childrens fantasy stories.
I was only about 10 when i enjoyed Narnia but obviously i have matured greatly (?) since then and just cringed at what i saw happening in front of me on the big screen. Don’t get me wrong, i think the film has been quite well made but i decided that i don’t actually like most of the story and just sat there thinking ‘as if!’ as i watched the story unfold. How could i have been so foolish when i was younger?!! Lock me in the wardrobe please if this rubbish is ever on TV!
