Faith in Humanity Restored

Last night I went to see Star Wars at the Uptown. I won't even discuss the hair-dos in that film or how much I wanted to strangle wee little Yoda. No, the best part of my film-going experience came during the preview for The Chronicles of Narnia. I am a big Narnia fan to begin with, so imagine my delight when, as the music died and the credits flashed, some guy yelled out: "ASLAN IS JESUS!!" Aslan man, let me take this opportunity to say: I am smitten. Call me sometime. We could play "five minutes in the wardrobe" and eat treacle tarts by the light of the lamp post in the forest. Smooches.

See you at six-ish in yr CP hood.

Wait, Aslan was Jesus? That means Susan represented Mary Magdalene, Edmund was a metaphor for humanity and the Turkish Delight was just as delicious as the 2lb bear claws they sell near my office.

nearly in tears over the preview. But can I say, I never new star wars could be so good. I was glad I saw it. Being an immigrant like I am, I missed the end of the story when it came out. now I have to go rent them.

I'll have to try to hunt down that preview online. About three or four months ago I watched the BBC's made-for-tv series (circa 1988) of the Chronicles of Narnia. After The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, I realized I would have to watch them with a grain of salt and a gallon of scotch to derive enjoyment.

Here's hoping this upcoming round is better. :-)
