NARNIA film

Anyone expecting much from the third installment after how average the previous one was.

I've heard it is pretty good, effects-wise anyway. Bough the first two at the weekend, I like the 2nd more than the 1st.

Second was the better book but thought the first film was a bit better.
They messed a little too much with the proper story in the second.

Only read the books once, my memory is more of the BBC series from when I was a nipper, loved it at the time.

Still mean to get the DVDs of them sometime too. :)

I think the BBC version was better. I have both on DVD. Having written that, the effects in the film were better as it was more recent, but I still prefered the BBC's take on it.
Best wishes,

More thought can be put in when the special effects aren't available. and the BBC adaption is a good example of this. :D

Both versions do drag, though, considering how short the books are.

The trailer was on this past Wednesday, when we went to see Harry Potter DH. It looks excellent. I have to say though, i was bored silly with the books. I could not finish them. (takes cover)

I had them on tape...I don't think I'd have read them though. The only one I really liked as a child was the Horse and His Boy, and I don't think they'll make that one into a movie. *sadface*

I've only seen the first film and I think it's one of those things that 'cause it probably influenced later writers it now seems pretty generic. Even though it was new at the time...

I've also never really been into sickly messages of love and hope...But then I'm just bitter :lol:

Yep! Thats what I hated too. Minus the bitter part..... The teen has only just learnt it has religious connotations... but then we aren't a religious household. My little one says: Mummy, how come some people believe in God? I tell her... Well honey? You know how YOU believe in Santa and the Tooth Fairy and some kids your age don't? Well its like that! to which she said: Yes but I know Santa is real.... HE brings presents! :D Bless her little heart. She does have a point though.

having watched film 2 last week, I have literally just finished 3, I enjoyed it I have a thing for dragons and mystical creatures its worth a watch but it wont be added to best film of all time category.
the effects were pretty good would be better viewed in a cinema and 3d version will add to the experience =]

I think it was better than the 2nd film :)

spoilers= contains dragon, mermaids,sea serpents.
And in Heather's case, there were sometimes Third Thoughts and Fourth Thoughts, although these were quite difficult to manage and sometimes led her to walk into doors

I wonder if they'll make a movie of the last book. There's a scene in there that came as a bit of a shock to me when I read it the first time. :shock:
