Movie Review ~ Narnia
Casting plays a big part as to whether a movie ‘works’. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe had a very good cast. I was especially pleased with Tilda Swinton as the White Witch. She wasn’t quite what I had imagined during my many readings of the book… she was better. Just as the LOTR characters defined their roles, so too did the cast of TLTWTW.
In fact, if you weren’t familiar with the story of the Gospels, you would be unaware of the connection. If, however, you *were* cognizant of the Bible story, the parallels were obvious, and powerful.
It’s a story of: Friendship, Betrayal, Love, Hope, Honor, Guilt, Pride, Suffering, Judgement and Redemption… Just like an average night at Blog Idaho.
