I also loved the cartoon version! [In reply to] Can't Post

It ticked me off that they felt it necessary to mess with Lewis' near-perfect dialogue when they made the new film, as if it needed "help" to be made relevant to a more modern audience. The cartoon was exceedingly faithful, in my opinion, whereas the movie lost some of its punch with a watered-down script. Boo! Hiss! Kids are brighter than you think, certainly brighter than Hollywood credits them. Narnia is an enchanted place, after all, where characters act differently, think differently and above all, speak differently. I don't see how an exposure to a wider vocabulary could be anything other than good to a child. They'll catch on quickly.

I'd rather learn from one bird how to sing than to teach ten thousand stars how not to dance--e.e. cummings

I like those old made-for-TV Narnia movies better than the new ones... aruman Send a private message to aruman Oct 15 2012, 3:36pm
