Lovely. Would have been lovelier if we hadn’t been treated to the musical stylings of Manheim Steamroller instead of the dialogue during Lucy’s tea with Mr. Tumnus, but that’s the local Cinesuck for you. They got it straight just before he admitted [the important thing], so it’s all good.
Those child actors were killer. I’m still not completely sold on Liam Neeson as the voice of Aslan, but the growly bits were sufficiently… growly. Tilda Swinton is just about perfect as the Witch.
Michael, who can rarely be persuaded to read anything, is making noises about reading the book now. Score one for Mr. Lewis.
Cool trailers: Cars, Glory Road, Over the Hedge, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest. Several very tedious trailers as well. No King Kong for the first time in months. Amazingly, no Nanny McPhee either.
Michael shakes his head every time we pass the Final Destination 3 poster in the lobby. “It’s not the FINAL destination if there are THREE of them.”
(Oh, before I forget — was that Imogen Heap in the closing credits song?)
