Curiousity: Why do I have so little interest in The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe, the latest lit-rich fantasy epic to be transmorphed into a film series? I love C.S. Lewis as an author and all throughout my life I have had little use for his contemporary J.R.R. Tolkien yet The Lord of the Rings films couldn't have excited me more. Perversely I greet each new Narnia image or trailer with something approximating a shrug. Is it the talking animals? The director of Shrek? Fantasy epic fatigue after 3 Christmases of Middle Earth? Anyone else not feeling excited or is it just me?
