Just saw The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

I'm going to yield to Lisa and the review she's writing, because she's the REAL Narnia nut in this family. But overall: I liked it for the most part. It didn't yield as much emotional "umph" as any of The Lord of the Rings movies did, and it's because of that I think the movie could have stood to be much longer. But otherwise, this first (I hope) Narnia movie was a darned good thing to catch, especially now during the Christmas season. I will say this about the movie: it has the coolest looking Santa Claus ever (and this one gives you nice toys like real swords and arrows). Will link to Lisa's review when it's up, and tomorrow I'm hoping to watch Syriana, so expect a review of that too.
