narnia

Anybody else anticipating December 9 as much as I am?

Well, I'm probably not anticipating it as much as you are, but I do plan to/want to see it in the theatres when it comes out. Just don't count on me waiting in line overnight to get tickets or anything! I was very excited about it when I saw the trailers for it this summer in the theatres. David has read parts of the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe to Julia, I think we'll have to pick up on that again so I familiarize myself with the story (again.)

I can't wait!

I pointed a movie poster out to Rick this weekend when we were at Green Hills theater. I was so excited and told him that I can't wait to go see it. You know what he said? "Have fun....hope you find someone else to go with you."

Boys! If no one is being shot up or blown up, he really has zero interest.

We lucked out & it's Parents Night Out at our church, so we can leave the little one there while we take our son to see the movie!

What we need are some more babysitters so we can check out things like new movies. Now THAT sounds like a good idea...

More excited for this than I was for Lord of the Rings.

Seriously, I loved LOTR in high school like every other nonself-respecting geek, but Narnia was the fabric of my childhood. When I saw the first trailer for this movie, I literally got goosebumps. And Amanda, you can come with me and Sheryl. I'm lucky enough to be married to a woman that loves this stuff as much as I do.

I love C.S. Lewis and I have already read the Narnia series to Maria (5). But I don't get so excited over these things because the movies rarely measure up to the book(s). How could they?

1. Trying to cover a book in two hours.
2. Having someone else interpret the atmosphere, personalities, voices, and scenary rather than your own mind (this is my favorite thing about reading).

However, if the producers do as well as LOTR did it should be awesome. LOTR was about the best adaptation I have ever seen of a book(s) into movie(s).

More opinion that was warranted, but hey...you can always delete me.

P.S.

Thanks for the slight Phil, Anita and I would have loved the fellowship and the movie too! :-)

BTW, you were right Phil, Napoleon Dynamite is the dumbest thing I have ever seen.

btw, Christianity Today has a two part interview with Douglas Gresham on life with CS Lewis and the movie, on which Gresham served as a producer and consultant.

Part One

Part Two

Sounds good to me!

We'll have to make plans, and I'll somehow fake Rick into babysitting for you guys.....I think it'll be good for him!

I think it's time for the Singles to have another babysitting night for all of us to go see it.

I might have some contacts in there...

I said it'd be a Bloggers Night Out, so Clarissa, that includes you. :o)

And Malia, if you can get to Nashville you'd be more than welcome to join us!
