I saw the movie The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe recently, and I must say that I enjoyed it a great deal. The C.S. Lewis story is a good one, of course, a classic, and the screenplay is a good adaptation. The movie is well done, and well acted — I was particularly impressed with the children, who are all quite excellent (especially the youngest, Georgie Henley, who is really a delight). It's a fun bit of fantasy that I can recommend to adults, as well as for children. And it's probably best on a large screen, so don't wait for the DVD.
