Disney Drops Narnia Movie, Dawn Treader Voyage Cancelled

I have always thought that it would be difficult to make a full length movie out of all seven books in the Narnia series. I was concerned that if the books were forced to fit into the ‘full length movie’ paradigm that ‘enhancements’ and ’embellishments’ would necessarily have to follow. I find that many Christians much preferred something true to the text. A cinematic version of the movies still would be nice, and I personally wouldn’t mind if they maxed out at 40 minutes. That is better than ‘filler’ stuff that is questionable as to whether or not it aligns with what Lewis would have wanted.

Some Philip Pullman Interviews with Excerpts

I wanted to gather in one spot a handful of interviews with Pullman. I have to imagine that there is a list somewhere with them, but I could not find them. They all make for interesting reading and I have drawn some excerpts from them. http://www.washingtonpost.com/ac2/wp-dyn/A23371-2001Feb18?language=printer Just a short walk away from the Pullmans’ house […]

A review of the Chronicles of Narnia Movie

Faithful, Faithful, Faithful. ‘Faithful’ sums up my review of the Narnia Movie. There have been many reviews of the movie already, by wiser heads. I’ve read only one of them, myself, so what follows is primarily from my own reflection. I should note that while I’ve read the Chronicles of Narnia, and TLWW a dozen […]
