Lion, or LOTR??? Happy New Year!!!

We did see The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe this afternoon... the movie theater was packed!!! (The parking lot and lobby, not necessarily our particular theater.) The movie was good; I'd give it 3 out of 4 stars... but boy, did it seem eerily similar to the Lord of the Rings movies theme- good vs. evil, and all that, but a couple of the scenes and how they played out reminded me SO much of battle scenes from the LOTR movies.

Now, Tom and I want to read the book again to find out if those scenes were actually in the book. And, I do NOT understand why people bring very small children to the movies... there were some people behind us with a little kid who couldn't have been older than 3 yrs old- it was distracting, and I certainly don't think they got anything out of the story. (How could anyone, when they got up to go to the potty at least three times in 2 hours?! -rant over-

Happy (almost) New Year, and best wishes to everyone for a prosperous, healthy, and happy 2006!!!
