Yesterday afternoon John and I went to see The third Chronicles of Narnia movie: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. I don't always claim to entirely understand what's going on in these exciting movies because I never read the books, but I always enjoy the tremendous productions. They have great music, and costumes, and animation. There is something to excite every age group...and both male and female audiences.
We saw it in 3-D, but I think it would have been just as good in 2-D. It is good clean family entertainment, and in our case it provided a fun date for my hubby and I. Since the Christian author C.S. Lewis wrote the books there is symbolic meanings in the characters and plots. We did pick up on much of it in this third installment, and liked how it taught lessons and warnings about desiring beauty, wealth and power...and how what we fear often comes upon us, so we mustn't give in to the desires of the flesh or the draw of evil.
I came away with a feeling that good had overcome evil. (:>) A very satisfying film! So while it is still in the theaters you should go and see it if you haven't done so already. It is good family entertainment!
