Serious Jest: (Don’t Bother) The Narnia series is like The Wizard of Oz meets Harry Potter meets Lord of the Rings, but not as good as any of them. Still, I enjoyed The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, just like I enjoyed the Narnia books as a kid, because of the new, creative world that they introduced, the entertaining story line, and the well-done special effects. This movie is not as good as the other two Narnia films. Other than the dragon, there is not much value added–green mist is not enough to take this series to the next level. While I realize that this movie is geared toward kids, this is one family film that you might put on for your child but only kind of pay attention to while you do other things.
