I went with a group to see it on Midnight, opening night. Can you believe that the film reel was incorrectly spliced and they showed the "resurrection" before the "crucifixion"? Despite watching a good part of it out of sequence, we indeed saw it all, and I must agree that some of the Biblical elements presented (including many of Aslan's quotes that were similar to Christ's own words) left a good impression on me as I left.

Melinda,

I keep up to date with you thoughts pretty consistently. I have not talked to you since graduating, but hope you are well.

Anyway, I saw LWW on Sunday with my family. I loved the depiction as well. The only thing that did not meet my expectations was that I thought the book was much better at conveying the awesomeness of Aslan and building anticipation of the children meeting him. Did you have this sense in comparison? I understand there is only so much a film can do, but when I read this book I could not help but think that the mere thought, or mention of his name would strike at the heart and make one either cower in humility or swell up against him in arrogant pride. I think they could have depicted this better, but overall a very good piece of work.

Oops! Sorry for the double post.

WOULD SOMEONE LIKE TO COMMENT ON OR EXPLAIN THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THE PROFESSOR'S CONVERSATION WITH THE OLDER TWO SIBLINGS ABOUT THE THE YOUNGEST'S BELIEF THAT NARNIA WAS REAL AFTER HER FIRST TRIP THERE. IT SEEMED AS IF HE WANTED THE OLDER BROTHER AND SISTER TO BELIEVE IN MAKE BELIEVE IF THE FACTS OR EVIDENCE IS TRUE. WAS THIS SOMETHING C.S. LEWIS WAS USING TO MAKE PEOPLE THINK THAT MAYBE THERE IS A SPIRITUAL REALITY JUST LIKE THERE IS A MATERIAL REALITY?

THE SCENE WAS OVER BEFORE IT STARTED TO SINK IN THAT THIS IS SOMETHING PROFOUND.

WAS IT? WHAT DO YOU THINK? AND I HOPE I CAN FIND MY WAY BACK TO READ SOME RESPONSES. THANKS.

BTW, THIS MOVIE IS ONE OF MY TOP 10 OF ALL TIME GREATEST MOVIES.
