If there is any more sucking face betwixt Caspian and, well, anyone, I think legal action will need to be taken against Disney.
Go for it!
On the other hand, there's an essay in the current Touchstone about how the films undermine the hierarchical vision Lewis had of Christianity, and I think there's something to be said for this. In any case, the films just haven't 'done it' for me, I'm afraid - they strike me as very much a Hollywood take on Lewis's fictional visions.
My wife and I are looking forward to seeing this as a 'date night' in Dec. Then we're going out to dinner and talking about the movie in a dissecting, dorky and fun way. Can't wait, those nights are few and far between after having our kids.
William,Truly, as Pr. Henderson said, you need to read http://www.touchstonemag.com/archives/article.php?id=23-06-030-f before you go. Laura, reading what they have done in the movie, and having breathed the Narnian air since childhood, and knows it better then her own backyard, finds the movies "evil" and with a vehemence that suggests that she is niether kidding nor employing hyperbole. Even I am deeply troubled by what I read. Read it. Now. Please.
I am REALLY curious to see what they will do with A Horse and His Boy....
Doug Gresham, the "brat" who finagled himself into possession of CS Lewis' literary output, is probably at the root of all of this.Some years ago there was a rumor going around that he was going to rewrite Lewis' stories and "get rid of all the Christian nonsense."Sounds like he's succeeded, via Hollywood.You can have it; I've got a boxed set of the real Narnia on the shelf, which I will read again.BTW, there were two Gresham brothers. The other one was part of the Lewis movie and the one Lewis understood.Somehow he got elbowed out and nobody talks about him.Douglas has lived off his tenuous connection with a famous step father. IMO, he's a con artist, like his mother.--helen
on Narnia Faith .com You can go into the Pastor section they have several different locations that they have set up from Pastors to preview it before hand ....maybe there is one close
