Saw The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe last night. 5/5! A+++++! Excellent ebayer! Would buy from again. [heh, considering how obviously they've engineered this for a six-cap, I'm sure the next movie will be up soon ;) .]
I'll be the first to admit it's been about 15 years since I made it through the famous books from C.S. Lewis. But, from limited memory, it seems to be a fairly accurate rendition of the tale. The acting was stellar from everyone involved, from the child actors that played the four siblings, to veteran Liam Neeson as the deep majestic voice of Aslan. The professor was interesting - would have almost sworn it was Jim Carey (having watched the garbage that was A Series of Unfortunate Events); except in this movie, the professor was actually played well. The CG was pretty good - perhaps not as convincing as Lord of the Rings, but as believable as a talking beaver couple ever is.
While still a children's story, definitely worth watching for any age, especially if you read the books as a kid. Watching the movie, you might find some interesting hidden parallels that you missed when you were younger.
