The Lion, the Witch... and the adorable little girl!!!!!

Boulos, Archana, Jesse, and I went to see The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe last night. Interesting, dorky fact: the only movies Boulos and I have attended together in the past year and a half are Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (twice) and this one. She is the bigger loser, as those are the only movies, period, she has gone to see in over a year! Everyone laugh at Boulos.

All women of child-bearing age be forewarned: Going to see the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe will make your uterus cry out for babies. The little girl playing Lucy is SO DAMN cute, I almost demanded that my friend Jesse (who is a homosexual) impregnate me mid-movie. Of course, the next step in the plan would be to move to WWII era London, otherwise my child would not have that cute lispy accent, and she wouldn't be nearly as innocent, or dress so adorably (according to my friend Erika, they now make "slut clothes" for children. haha). Edmund, though devious, is adorable as well. I could not stay mad at that child!


The kids (ignore the two older ones): Be still my throbbing womb


Beyond the adorable children, the movie was pretty excellent. Now, I am a huge nerd. I love children's books, and as I told a friend, I became a bit emotional when the movie started because I felt like I'd been waiting my whole life for a movie version of this book. In preparation, I re-read it about a month ago. I realized that Aslan makes me kind of uncomfortable. I assume this is because the book is really good; I love Lewis's style and everything, but when it gets to Aslan, the Christian allegory aspect of the book becomes way too obvious and overwhelming. He made me uncomfortable in the movie as well. I guess I'm not ready to be face to face with Jesus just yet.

The White Witch, however, is HOT. Jesse and I were blown away by her costumes and general sex appeal. So, unsurprisingly, the devil figure appeals to me.

Who can resist Turkish delights and high fashion? Not me


Other stuff about the movie: Susan was just as much a bitch onscreen as she is in the book, so that was well-done. I enjoyed the battle scenes. There were a few incredibly cheesy moments that I did not enjoy, and I almost murdered the annoying people behind us. They were like Mystery Science Theater for idiots. Boulos, Archana and I agree: Peter is hot. We loooooove teenage movie heros. Yay pedophilia!
