Loads of Major Spoilers

I watched the latest Narnia movie last night at my Navy Base theater. Mom wouldn't let me see it unless it was free. But believe me, it was definitely worth the wait.

The beginning was very well written. It showed how Edmund want to be the hero he really is in Narnia, but in his own world. Lucy accepted the fact that they are back better,since she didn't have to impress everyone with her battle skills(since she had none). The letter form Peter and Susan was nice touch. Eustace crack me up. The actor did a great with him.

My favorite scene is a tie between the Book of Magic Spells(which was my favorite scene in the book) or Lucy temptation scene. The Dufflepuds were as funny as they were in the book, I think they did really well with them. The spell that made it snow was beautiful.

Lucy temptation scene was really well done, a spectacular acting job by Miss Georgie Henley. I like how they had the whole scene with Peter and Susan, and not because William Mosley was in it. Aslan was wonderful with Lucy.

I also like Edmund temptation was with the White Witch. I thought that was a good touch, since his temptation was him wanting to rule over all. Since she was the first person that suggested him to be king, I thought it suited the situation perfectly. Edmund also showed his darker side(Skander Keynes did an amazing job with it), which we haven't scene since LWW.

The bonding with Reepicheep and Eustace was magical, just like the book. I absolutely loved it.

The only thing that I was disappointed with was that it did not stayed true to the book. That's a pet peeve of mine.

Overall, the movie was magical, just like C.S Lewis intended it to be.
