Rated 5/10. These were rather cheesy productions and nowhere as good as the original movies.

This book entails a series of adventures that these kids go through. It is an action book and I recommend it to any reader interested in mythical creatures.

I used to watch this when I was a kid, so when I saw the new one come out I kid of saw it as a carbon copy compared to this one. This isn't particularly amazing, but I always thought the queen was damn scary.

I own Disney's version but still prefer this one. It stays truer to the book and I feel the build up to the war is better. Yes Disney's is brighter and not animated but there is a big difference in what was available in the different decades. The war in the second one is way to long. BBC usually stays with the book.

This wasn't that bad of a movie. When watching it, you definitely have to understand that it is from 1988 (but was released on DVD in 2002). The acting was fine; however, the mythical Narnian creatures are either animated and completely unrealistic or they just look like people dressed in weird animal costumes. For the 80's though, this probably wasn't that bad.

But I would definitely say that the 2005 version of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is far superior and more vibrant!!!!!! In this movie the Narnian creatures look more realistic and I found that there were more powerful moments between the Pevensie siblings and between Aslan and everyone. The soundtrack was also great in the 2005 version.
