The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe

The first movie in the Narnia cycle is a whole lot better than the second.

But there are still problems

1. The Bad guy is so much cooler than the Good guy. Tilda Swinton v a pompous CGI lion: no contest.

2. Child actors. The little girl playing Lucy is a delight. The others not so much.

3. Violence for its own sake. I'll bet Lewis dismisses the climactic battle in a page. Here it goes on and on and on. 

Back to Aslan. If fictional characters who embody virtue are almost always boring- and they are- then our conception of virtue must be wrong.
