This is a childhood film for me, I think I was about 10 when I first watched it and I thought it was Magical. Kids are so gullible it’s easy to believe in a world like this. The escapism is so good. I loved Mr Tumnus, he’s like the favourite character for me. Obviously, I’m a fan of James McAvoy because he’s in X-Men and he was in the Shameless UK TV show but I didn’t know it was him who played Mr Tumnus until about a year ago. He’s amazing. It definitely doesn’t come close to Harry Potter but it’s such a beautiful world. I loved the snow and the Queen.
I started reading the book but because I was only young I never finished it and I don’t think I’ll ever get round to reading it now but I’m sure the books are just as magical. I love this film, they did it really well but it just went downhill. The second one was okay but I didn’t enjoy it anywhere near as much as I did this one. After the second one when some of the cast didn’t return well it just got worse. I only rate the first film and I would recommend it to everyone, it’s fantastic and very fun to watch. You feel like you yourself goes on the adventure with these characters. That’s what makes it so special.
Tomorrow I will be reviewing Step Up 2: The Streets 🙂
