The Chronicles of Narnia — the review’s up! December 9, 2005

My review of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is now up at Shorter versions of this review will appear in the print editions of ChristianWeek, ChristianCurrent and BC Christian News.

I’m feeling like a real contrarian right now. I am honestly stunned by the gushing praise this film is receiving, and from such unlikely quarters — five out of five from The Guardian, four out of four from The Globe and Mail, etc. I can think of many films superior to this one — I am listening to the score for one as I type — and surely some room ought to be left on the rating scale for them.

UPDATE: Click here for a debate between me, Jeffrey Overstreet, Steven D. Greydanus and Barbara Nicolosi on the merits of this film viz a viz Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings.
