Ang Leon Na Ka-boses ni Sean Connery, Ang Bruhang Kamukha ni Galadriel at Isang Napakalaking Kabinet

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe Darius, Darice and I watched The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe last night. To say the moviehouse was jampacked would be an understatement. People were already seated on the steps! My vegetables, this was a mall along Marcos Highway! Nilalangaw ang mga foreign films sa mall na'to tapos biglang SRO sa Narnia.

Anyhoo, seeing this movie without having read the books is quite liberating because there are no comparisons to be made. I was just sailing along the story of four siblings trying to find their way about a magical place inside an old antique wardrobe. And I absolutely adored the story.

It feels good to suspend your belief for a few hours, and just let yourself be amazed by talking animals, especially by Aslan (Kaboses pa ni Sean Connery! Although, it was Liam Neeson who voiced the lion) and those cute beavers, centaurs, unicorns, dwarves and fauns! Then be scared of the bitchy white witch (who suspiciously looks like Galadriel from the Lord of the Rings, but it's actually Tilda Swinton, the one who played Gabriel in Constantine), and wonder if somebody can be that evil in real life. And then just simply be fascinated with the triumph of good over evil, in a land full of magic and joy and hope and childhood dreams, all behind an old big cabinet.

The best part about this is, when your daughter asks, "Mama, di ko gets" when the kids tumble out of the wardrobe at the end of the movie.

And you get to explain logic, share observations, and talk about the lion who sounds like Sean Connery, the witch who looks like Galadriel, and the big old cabinet, with all the seriousness of a five year-old kid.


  1. Di niya gets?

    The moral of the story is: no matter how far you get in life, in the end, everybody will still treat you like a kid.

    Hehe, labo! :P

  2. yung last part na lang na yon, kasi di ba nga, mejo tumanda na sila sa narnia? so di nya gets kung bakit naging bata uli sila sa ending paglabas ng wardrobe...

    inexplain ko naman. i think nagets din naman nya finally. hehe.

  3. Hehehe cute naman!

    I LOVED this film. Galing galing galing!
