on a visit to the cinema with your folks anyway...

(BTW -spoiler alert, not much of one, as everybody probably knows the plot of the Chronicals of Narnia anyway, but its now up to you)

It was the bit where Peter is fighting Maugrim, the Queens henchman, and Aslan calls the others off, and says something along the lines of

'no, this is something Peter has to do for himself...'

My inner idiot took over at that point and spouted out (yes, you guessed it)

'no! no its not!

Earning me a smack around the head from the parents, and another when I yelled child abuse.

I think it was the final straw after all my uncontrollable giggling whenever Peter pointed a sword at anyone, something about as natural and threatening as Jayne composing and reading aloud love sonnets...

Apart, or maybe bacause of that (P's fight with the Queen is spectacular) bloody good film,

Including the soundtrack, if we do get a sequel, I think Narnia's composer would do a fab job with Firefly's existing themes and motifs.

As an aside, I'm always hearing this stuff about Narnia as an allegory for christianity, Aslan as a christ-like figure and whatnot.
It's interesting to note, that though everyone is fighting for the good and evil sides, and good wins, at the end of the day, lives are restored, injuries healed and life continues in bliss thanks to 'old lore' and the gift of a pagan icon.

no, go see, go see, very cool film. just learn silent manly shaking shoulder type laughing, as opposed to big out-loud guwauffing,

or however the hell its spelt.

I can't go see Narnia now. I know if I had seen it, the same quote would've been in my head. Now I know I'll laugh out loud at that. Not the concussion bit, but well...

Heh, I've done that at a play I went to with my school, some stupid making shakespeare fun for school kids thing.

I got sent out :D.

Oh and...

Most of modern day christianity is paganism repackaged ;).
