The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe
C.S. Lewis's classic novel The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe makes an ambitious and long-awaited leap to the screen in this modern adaptation. It's a CGI-created world laden with all the special effects and visual wizardry modern filmmaking technology can conjure, which is fine so long as the film stays true to the story that Lewis wrote. And while this film is not a literal translation--it really wants to be so much more than just a kids' movie--for the most part it is faithful enough to the story, and whatever faults it has are happily faults of overreaching, and not of holding back. The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe tells the story of the four Pevensie children, Lucy, Peter, Edmund, and Susan, and their adventures in the mystical world of Narnia. Sent to the British countryside for their own safety during the blitz of World War II, they discover an entryway into a mystical world through an old wardrobe. Narnia is inhabited by mythical, anthropomorphic creatures suffering under the hundred-year rule of the cruel White Witch (Tilda Swinton, in a standout role). The arrival of the children gives the creatures of Narnia hope for liberation, and all are dragged into the inevitable conflict between evil (the Witch) and good (Aslan the Lion, the Messiah figure, regally voiced by Liam Neeson).

Director (and co-screenwriter) Andrew Adamson, a veteran of the Shrek franchise, knows his way around a fantasy-based adventure story, and he wisely keeps the story moving when it could easily become bogged down and tiresome. Narnia is, of course, a Christian allegory and the symbology is definitely there (as it should be, otherwise it wouldn't be the story Lewis wrote), but audiences aren’t knocked over the head with it, and in the hands of another director it could easily have become pedantic. The focus is squarely on the children and their adventures. The four young actors are respectable in their roles, especially considering the size of the project put on their shoulders, but it's the young Georgie Henley as the curious Lucy who stands out. This isn't a film that wildly succeeds, and in the long run it won't have the same impact as the Harry Potter franchise, but it is well done, and kids will get swept up in the adventure. Note: Narnia does contain battle scenes that some parents may consider too violent for younger children. --Dan Vancini

Prince Caspian

More exciting than The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian continues the movie franchise based on C.S. Lewis' classic fantasy books. The movie picks up where the first left off... sort of. It's been a year since the Pevensie children--Peter (William Moseley), Susan (Anna Popplewell), Edmund (Skandar Keynes), and Lucy (Georgie Henley)--returned to England from Narnia, and they've just about resigned themselves to living their ordinary lives. But just like that, they're once again transported to a fantastical land, but one with a long-abandoned castle. It turns out that they are in Narnia again--and they themselves lived in that castle, but hundreds of years ago in Narnia time. They've been summoned back to help Prince Caspian (Stardust's Ben Barnes, resembling a young, cultured Keanu Reeves), the rightful heir to the throne who's become the target of his power-hungry uncle, King Miraz (Sergio Castellitto). And he's not the only one threatened: Miraz's people, the Telmarines, have pushed all the Narnians--the talking animals, the centaurs and other beasts, the walking trees--to the brink of extinction. Despite some alpha-male bickering, Peter and Caspian agree to fight Miraz alongside the remaining Narnians, including the dwarf Trumpkin (Peter Dinklage) and the swashbuckling mouse Reepicheep (voiced by Eddie Izzard). (Also appearing is Warwick Davis, who was in Willow and the 1989 BBC version of Prince Caspian.) But of course they most of all miss the noble lion, Aslan, who would have never let this happen to Narnia if he hadn't disappeared.

Prince Caspian is epic, evoking memories of Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings films. (Some of the battle elements may seem too familiar, but they were in Lewis's book.) And it's appropriate for kids (Reepicheep could have come out of a Shrek movie), though the tone is dark and there is a lot of death, albeit bloodless. After two successful films, Disney and Walden Media's franchise has proved successful enough that many of the characters are scheduled to return in The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. --David Horiuchi, Amazon.com

Product Description

Double bill of family adventures based on the novel by C.S. Lewis. In 'The Chronicles of Narnia - The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe' (2005), Peter (William Moseley), Susan (Anna Popplewell), Edmund (Skandar Keynes), and Lucy (Georgie Henley) are deported from London to the house of an eccentric professor during World War II. They find life in the house extremely dull, until Lucy discovers a wardrobe that leads to a magical world called Narnia, where animals can talk and all are ruled over by the wise and benevolent lion Aslan (voice of Liam Neeson). The others don't believe her at first, but soon all of them go through the wardrobe and discover all is not well in Narnia. The land is being kept in a perpetual winter by the evil White Witch, Jadis (Tilda Swinton), who turns anyone who doesn't obey her into stone. The children join Aslan and the animals loyal to him in an attempt to vanquish Jadis. In 'The Chronicles of Narnia - Prince Caspian' (2008), the story continues as exiled heir to the throne, Prince Caspian (Ben Barnes), tries to defeat evil King Miraz (Sergio Castellitto) and regain his rightful place on the throne. Thinking it has only been one year since they last visited the magical kingdom of Narnia, the four child heroes return to discover that 1300 years have actually passed in the kingdom. With Narnia's golden age over, the usurpers, King Miraz and Queen Punaprisma (Alicia Borrachero), have taken the throne. Eager to keep his bloodline on the throne, the evil king plans to kill the rightful heir, Prince Caspian, in order that his son will inherit the kingdom. Now it's up to Peter (Moseley), Susan (Popplewell), Edmund (Keynes) and Lucy (Henley) to find Prince Caspian and, with the aid of those loyal to Narnia, restore the rightful king to the throne.

4.0 out of 5 stars Through the wardrobe 16 Jan 2009
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
For several years, fantasy films were MIA, except the occasional hack job.

Then Peter Jackson's glorious "Lord of the Rings" came and went, leaving some pretty big shoes to fill, as far as fantasy films go. And while "The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe" and its grittier sequel "Prince Caspian" don't quite fill those shoes, they come a lot closer than any movie has since. Andrew Adamson brings C.S. Lewis's classic fantasy novels to life with plenty of beauty, drama and solid acting.

With WW II raging, the four Pevensie children are sent to the countryside, at an eccentric professor's mansion. But during a game of hide-and-seek, little Lucy (Georgie Henley) hides inside a wardrobe -- and stumbles into a wintry wilderness, with a faun she befriends. Alas, her brothers and sisters don't believe her -- but they don't know that Edmund (Skandar Keynes) has also gone through, and befriended a sinister, beautiful Witch (Tilda Swinton).

Eventually all four end up going through the wardrobe, but but they soon find that the Witch is hunting for them, in fear that they will fulfil an ancient prophecy. But Edmund has run off to join the Witch. And so the remaining three must join up with Aslan (Liam Neeson), the leonine god-king of Narnia. But the price for victory against the Witch may be too high.

And then we have the drastically different story of "Prince Caspian" -- 1,300 years later, wioth the native Narnians driven underground by human Telmarines.

When King Miraz's (Sergio Castellitto) wife gives birth to a baby boy, his nephew -- the rightful heir -- becomes an obstacle. Young Prince Caspian (Ben Barnes) flees from his treacherous uncle, and is discovered by a band of Narnians.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Blu-Rays 17 Jan 2010
Format:Blu-ray
We received this box set yesterday and spent the evening enjoying them. We had the first one on DVD and wanted to wait until there was a set before we jumped into the blu-ray. We were not disappointed! The blu-ray is a big step-up in quality from the DVD.

Chances are, if you read the stories, you know what the films are about, and if you are interested in the blu-rays, you have probably already seen these films. I don't review movies and their content, rather the blu-ray and how well the film is transferred. The stories are excellent however, about four children who stumble into another world through a wardrobe. The world is filled with danger, adventure and glory for the kids. I hate spoiler reviews, so if you want to read about the story, or what others think about it, there are other reviews here or other websites. My wife and I like the stories, and rate them at 5 stars for originality, adventure, re-watchability, and action. As a fan of the books as a child, I am thrilled to finally have this film on blu-ray. The books are of course better, as is usually the case.

As with all Disney blu-rays, expect the twenty minutes of super annoying previews. That being said, Disney always puts out quality blu-rays and this is no exception

Picture:

Brilliant. Really just brilliant. I can't even find one complaint with the transfer, it is excellent. Ok, maybe one, the CGI is sometimes not as brilliant as the rest, but that is not the blu-ray's fault.

Both have 1080p/24 16x9 2.4:1 and really bring both of these films to life. Disney spent money on the transfers and it is evident as both films are just a visual treat. Five stars for both.

Sound:

Excellent. The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe has PCM 5.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Films 5 Oct 2009
By R. Dare
Format:DVD
Bought this box set after my 4 year old fell in love with the "prince caspian" film (he was amazed by talking animals) after viewing it on my generic satellite recording system.

Although there is moderate violence in this film, we (the viewer) are spared a lot of the gratuitous gore that blights a lot of films nowadays.

On the whole an excellent pair of films that have kept both me and the kids entertained for hours ;o))

3.0 out of 5 stars Where are the bonus features???? 22 Dec 2010
By Bubbles
Format:DVD
Is anyone else struggling to find the bonus features on the Prince Caspian DVD? I have the 2-movie collector's set and all the bonus features listed on the sleeve for The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe are on the DVD, but not so for Prince Caspian. There's only the commentary on the Prince Caspian DVD and I'm missing the bloopers, deleted scenes, and all the other mini-documentaries. It's like I'm missing an extra DVD, even though there's only space for the 2 film dvds in the case. All these bonus features are listed on the sleeve. Is there a special way to access them, like online? Or am I being stupid?

Excellent films though both. They look brilliant on DVD, and must be amazing on blu-ray.
