Lucy and Edmund Pevensie lives in one house with their cousin Eustace Scrubb.

During their voyage across the sea they encounter different elementals, dragons, a band of lost warriors, merfolk and more.
Aside from the HP Series.. I am pretty much a die hard fan of the Chronicles of Narnia. This movie brought to life... my imaginations which I've read over and over during my childhood years.
Mhmm...Something seems to be lacking about the movie... I don't recommend the 3D Version. not really satisfying.
I always enjoy it whenever I see Aslan. Reepecheep was fun and paired up with Eustace.. it was great tandem and they brought life to the film with their constant arguing. Will Pulter as Eustace clearly did well and would really make you remember him. With its clean humor, Christian values, magical scenes, this would be a great film to watch with the family. It's good that they made it quite simple.. the story... so thought the younger audience can understand easily.
Metaphysical stories would be the transformation of Eustace (from nasty to being the hero who saves the day).....Lucy's dark side which was vanity, Reepecheeps journey beyond....
Convos I Like:
Coriakin: To defeat the darkness out there, you must defeat the darkness inside yourself.
King Caspian: Now's the time to be strong. Never give in.
Lucy: Aslan, will we ever meet with you in our world?
Aslan: You shall.
Aslan: Because there I have another name. You must learn to know me by that name. This was the very reason why you were brought to Narnia, that knowing me here for a little, you may know me better there.
