A Review of the New Narnia Film by BobinOz: Spoiler Alert!
The first movie I ever saw at the pictures after moving to Australia was “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe”.
My wife was a Narnia nut as a child and she dragged me along to the cinema with her. Mind you, even I had read that one as a child. A wardrobe leading to a fantasy world was a cool idea. Yes, it was the first movie I ever saw at the pictures after moving to Australia and it’s also the last! I don’t get out much. Well, not to the cinema.
But I do get out a lot into the open air, that’s what living in Australia is all about. I mentioned in my post on Monday, which was about the previous Sunday afternoon, that we went to the film set of an upcoming blockbuster.
According to IMDB, the new film goes something like this: “Lucy and Edmund Pevensie return to Narnia with their cousin Eustace where they meet up with Prince Caspian for a trip across the sea aboard the royal ship The Dawn Treader. Along the way they encounter dragons, dwarves, merfolk, and a band of lost warriors before reaching the edge of the world.”
Well, have I got news for you!
- They don’t return to Narnia.
- They don’t travel across the sea.
- There are no dragons, dwarves, merfolk or lost warriors.
- The world is round, there is no edge.
How do I know? Because I’ve seen the ship….
It’s nowhere near Narnia, it’s parked up over at Cleveland Point just an hour from my house! Look at the bottom of it, that ship won’t be sailing anywhere!
As for dragons, dwarves, merfolk and lost warriors, do they mean this lot?
And I travelled all the way from England around the world to Australia, I think I would’ve seen the edge of the world if there was one, don’t you? Now take a careful look at this short video…….
Did you see that? Yes, they are acting!
The first film was amazing because it was true, but now they are just making it up. I find it all very sad.
Storm Dust Update
After yesterday’s storm dust clouds, today’s sky is back to its usual beautiful clear blue colour as you will see from the image that will appear in tomorrow’s post. But the pinky red dust is still around; on the tables, on the chairs, on the TV set, on the fridge, on Elizabeth’s toys, well, just about everywhere!
The outback is now indoors. Now, what did we do with the duster?
