Subject:  The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe

Well, maybe I'm getting sentimental in my old age, but watching that film had me holding back the tears!!!!!



Seriously, I think it was a faithful interpretation of Lewis' classic story, and the script, performances and acting were very good. WW2 Britain and its fashions were well portrayed, and the unknown child stars were mature and interacted very well.



Thought Tilda Swinton looked very sexy as the White Witch!



The only thing going against it was some tacky specail effects (some of the CGI mooked more like CSO) - but I thought it was far better than "Lord of the Rings" and it brought the magic back of Narnia - aworld where good whips the a** of evil (fantasy!!!!!!)



Oh, and then there's all the religious sub texts - I took my Mum to see it, and in between tears when Aslan was 'sacrificed', she was qutoting from the Gospel According to John.....so is the film just a nice way of dressing up Christian values and ideas??????

The battle between good and evil is absolutely epitomised in films like "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe", the "Star Wars"/"Star Trek" legacies, and "The lord of the Rings".

there are more Christian (or Zen) subtexts in those movies than any others I can think of - and many books can be written about this topic.

>There's a University faculty in the UK that is teaches Tolkien - including the language (written and verbal) of Elf.

>I also understand that Jedi can be legally (or almost legally) chosen as your own religion...........and when I did some study at Lutheran Seminary, I met a lot of Star Wars and Star Trek fans.



...........Wells wrote "the War of the Worlds" as a critique of Victorian Britain (Rue Britania), and as a arning of how warfare will become as machines and technology get more advanced.

>Where are all these Scientological references you speak of????

I did not mean the HG Well's Book but the Cruise/Speilbore movie. 



"war of the worlds". There has to be a bigger message in this film and I finally got it.



Tom Cruise practises a certian religion (cult) right.



Tom Cruise is the Hero, the annoying little girl the "Unnamed Religion" and the Aliens are the worlds media trying to undermine peoples perception of the religion(cult).



you see now it all makes sence

Absolutely!



Terrorists will blow your arms and legs off or cut off your head. Its violent and very nasty, but Scientologists are like Vogons - they'll force you to hear them go on about their eligion and they'll screw with your head. Also, how do you spot a Scientologist? They try to blend in with the crowd and find people to convert to their way of thinking. Come to think of it, is there really much difference between the two????????

The media give us 'Knowsaphobia'..........when we read or hear about something (especailly when its about our health or the future), we start to think its happening to us.



When training to teach Psychology, we are warned to tell the students to be careful to not think everything they're reading about is about themselves.
