The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe 
Has a Certain Sense of Wonder
4/4 stars

Itís interesting to watch this movie again after seeing it three years ago. Itís a lot different than the sequel in many ways. For instance, the environs that we could see here are mostly covered in snow, there are far less battle scenes, and the focus of the story is the discovery of the Narnia and the creatures that live in such an enchanted place. Even though Georgie Henley (Lucy), Skandar Keynes (Edmund), William Moseley (Peter), and Anna Popplewell (Susan) tend to overact at times, theyíre perfectly casted because they bring a certain fresh energy to the picture that may have been lost to more experienced actors. Plus, each of them has a special presence that made the movie that much more engaging. I must also give nods to Tilda Swinton for playing the chillingly effective White Witch and Liam Neeson for voicing the majestic Aslan. This is a great introduction to the ďNarniaĒ series even though I think itís not as heartpounding as its sequel. Nevertheless, while the second one lacks a certain sense of wonder, this one is drenched in it.

Alright, I absolutely hated this movie when I saw it, but in general I like this type of movies.The reason I didn't like this one was the poor acting of the kids, the story wasn't put together correctly (it seemed like it was only a few days but it was months), and a few scenes where I just rolled my eyes because it enhanced the movie so little they should have left it out. With that said, is there a chance I may like the sequel?
