The Chronicles of Narnia : The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe is simply magnificent!!

The CGIs are simply superb. The Lion looks really lifelike, and it is 100% computer generated! There are no portion of the movie that are not captivating. Tumnus the faun looks believable, and really cute. Peter the High King looks a bit like our Prince William. I like Peter's character, very intense. Just like I imagine it would be. And the landscape is simply breathtaking.

Too much adjectives? Please go and see the movie urself.

Personally, I would give 9 out of 10. Something like the kiddie version of The Lord of The Rings.
But with the Biblical aspect being toned down a bit. However, that is most probably due to the first book of the Narnia Chronicles being left out.

Ok, ok. I know, most of you would probably say 'What is this heathen Muslim knows abt Narnia and Christianity?' Below, I would give you some comparison between Christianity and the Chronicles of Narnia.

The Chronicles of Narnia : The Magician's Nephew tells about how the Lion (God) creates Narnia (Paradise). Then, after is completed, Digory and Polly (Adam and Eve) causes darkness to descend to Narnia by bringing the Witch (the Sin).

Then, the story diverts from Bible. in Narnia, the son of Adam brings back the Apple to ensure that Narnia is safe from the Witch for a long time, thus the Apple is good. The Apple in Bible signifies the fall of Adam.

In The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, the son of Adam and the daughter of Eve have to fight the Witch and brings peace and happiness back to Narnia. Sort of like the Christians struggle everyday against the Adam and Eve's Sin. In one part of the story, the Lion sacrifices itself to save a boy. Sort of like Jesus sacrificed himself to save humanity. Due to Deep Magic, the Lion was resurrected. Jesus was resurrected too. Lastly, the humans fight agaist the Witch and won. Humanity fights against Satan, and (in Christianity eyes) they won.

Coincidence? Not my dear Watson. I had noticed the parallel on the second reading of the Narnia Chronicles.

Anyway, it is the priviledges of authors to write whatever they want. Hurray for C.S. Lewis for an entertaining world!

Now, if only they would make the Prince Caspian. ;)

The race of man shall perish, but the eyes
Of trilobytes eternal in stone,
And seem to stare about in mild surprise
At changes greater than they have yet known.
- T.A. Conrad

To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
- William Blake,
excerp from Auguries of Innocence.
