Just a quick note to say Kim and I saw “Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe” this weekend, and neither of us were impressed. It was just flat story-wise. There were neat moments, the effects were spectacularly believable, but overall, the movie was just unimpressive.

I have to blame the fact that the bar has been raised considerably by what was acheived (I feel) in balancing technological acheivement with taut story-telling in the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy of films. Which is doubly interesting considering that Lewis and Tolkien were contemporaries.

But Narnia was somewhere in between the Harry Potter movies and LOTR, not feeling all that original in scope or acccomplishment.

Thoughts?
