Adam Walter Really, Really Doesn’t Like the Narnia Film

Walter rants.

So anyway, yes, I finally got out and saw Narnia. What a waste of time. It’s one of the few really boring films of 2005. It’s hard to say all of what went wrong–I don’t have the time or enthusiasm to compile such a list, frankly. For some reason, the filmmakers felt a need to deviate from Lewis’ story on a multitude of details regarding plot, dialogue, setting, character & motivation. Nearly every scene loses its way in a muddle of unnecessary confusion. This was as much a full travesty of adaptation as was Garth Jennings’ odious The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.
