Choose life. (Deuteronomy 30:19)

So, has there ever been an adaptation of the Narnia books that actually started off at the beginning with The Magician’s Nephew, and then carried on through the whole lot chronologically?

Tonight, flatmates Dave and Cathy sat down with myself to watch last year’s kiwi-shot (not that you’d know it) movie The Chronicles Of Narnia, and once again they’ve just begun with The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe, perhaps because it was the first written, but probably because it’s the best known.

As a movie it was passable, a bit going through the motions, but certainly one that held my attention throughout.

I can't help wishing that they’d sat down beforehand and planned out how to shoot and release the whole series though. There are good lessons to be learned from the success of Lord Of The Rings.
