The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, And The Wardrobe

I just got back from seeing this at a small local theater. I was so busy with work and other things earlier this month that I didn't get to see it sooner. The theater that was showing it is right behind where I live in the basement of the local community college. This is not the most state of the art theater. No stadium seating, no THX or anything like that but it is perfectly serviceable, even to see a big budget movie like this. I sat in the very front row. Since there is no stadium seating these are the best seats in the theater. It makes it so you don't have to look at the back of anybody else's head. Seeing movies in a theater like this is like seeing them back in the good old days which is pretty cool in a way.

Anyway I really liked the movie. It was not overly long. Maybe just over two hours. The special effects were very good with all the talking animals and such. Some of the big action scenes were cool also like the frozen river melting away and the huge battle at the end of the movie. The music flows with the on screen action very well. This is definitely one to see. A great piece of cinema escapism.
