It’s Summer Vacation and time to catch up on some of the shows and movies we have been meaning to see. Life during the school year can be quite busy with both a college professor and a high school student in the house, so it is nice to settle in for an hour or more over dinner and enjoy a movie all together as a family.
Tonight’s showing is Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage Of The Dawn Treader . We are big fans of the Narnia books and have enjoyed all the movies, so this was an easy choice to make. Now that we have a large HDTV and a combination BluRay DVD player and SmartTV device, it is incredibly easy to rent movies from Amazon.com and a variety of other sources. This convenience make it easy to chose a movie on the spur of the moment, something that helps insure we actually set aside some time for entertainment in our busy days.
“The Chronicles of Narnia is a series of seven high fantasy novels by C. S. Lewis. It is considered a classic of children’s literature and is the author’s best-known work, having sold over 100 million copies in 47 languages. Written by Lewis between 1949 and 1954, illustrated by Pauline Baynes and originally published in London between October 1950 and March 1956, The Chronicles of Narnia has been adapted several times, complete or in part, for radio, television, the stage, and film.
Set in the fictional realm of Narnia, a fantasy world of magic, mythical beasts, and talking animals, the series narrates the adventures of various children who play central roles in the unfolding history of that world. Except in The Horse and His Boy, the protagonists are all children from the real world, magically transported to Narnia, where they are called upon by the lion Aslan to protect Narnia from evil and restore the throne to its rightful line. The books span the entire history of Narnia, from its creation in The Magician’s Nephew to its eventual destruction in The Last Battle. — Wikipedia.org
