I did something I rarely do: I made an impulse purchase of a just-released movie on DVD. I simply couldn't resist buying The Chronicles of Narnia : The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe. I then watched it again with the kids, and found it just as good as I remembered from viewing it in the theater last December.
[SPOILER ALERT] I also concluded that my first impression of a few months ago was correct: this movie is a celebration of a manly man. This particular manly man is Peter, who goes from being a frightened bossy school kid, to a formidable warrior — not for fame or glory, but because it's the right thing to do. [END OF SPOILER ALERT.]
If you're new to my writing, you can find more of my thoughts on this point in an article I did at American Thinker about the movie. However, if you haven't yet seen the movie, get the video, enjoy it tremendously and then, if you're still interested, read my article (it's a bit of a spoiler, so you shouldn't read it before seeing the movie).
