I went to the cinema last night to watch The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. I absolutely loved it. It is always a bonus when you love the story anyway but as usual I was a bit nervous about what they could have done with it. However I thought that it was very true to the book and it didn’t comes across as a Hollywood Blockbuster. I was scared that it would be Americanised but if it was I didn’t notice. Aslan was amazing, although a little less scary than I imagined he would be from the book. The White Witch was played very well by Tilda Swinton, she was scary!
The Children played their parts well, especially Peter and Lucy I thought. I was worried that at the end it would come across as they were real fighters all of a sudden but they retained that element of fear and a certain clumsyness in themselves that children their age would have.
I recommend it to everyone, especially if you are a lover of the books.
Of course I really want to read them all again now!
