The film was ok, but too many slow moments and the pacing was off several times. The whole death of Aslan just comes across like a waste of time because;
A) you dont know him well enough to care
B) he comes back 10 mins later
so there's no emotional impact.

May just be rose-tinted glasses, but i remember the UK tv series more fondly than this.

But yes, perfect point. Not to mention the film presented said sacrifice as a sort of con, as nothing was actually lost, so nothing was actually sacrificied, which sort of pisses on the whole Jesus allegory.

I vaguely remember the whole Aslan dying lasting a LOT longer in the series. Oh, I know they had the advantage of making you wait a week, but I'm sure it lasted longer in the book too.

Perhaps ten minutes is the most Disney feel that they can stand to make children cry for?

Aren't the Asgard supposedly technologically superior?

I was totally flabbergasted by one stupid fool of a parent. Kid turns round and asks "Is Aslan dead, mam?" and she goes "No, he'll be back in a minute."

I just sat there thinking 'What's the point?' while restraining myself from standing up and saying "Madam, you are a damn fool. If you were a man, I would challenge you to fisticuffs"

Some people shouldn't be allowed to have children. Spoiling fucking films for children who don't know any better.

And when the kid's older it'll be "Son, your grandma's dead" followed by a "No mum, she'll be back in a minute".

The dangers of stupid off-the-cuff comments around little kids are many and varied.

I can just see the wee boy at the graveside now. "And this is when she comes back, right?

"For the last time, NO! She's fucking DEAD! When the vicar says 'resurrection' he doesn't mean NOW."

Well this is where he's going to get all religious and say "Well it only took Jesus three days... what gives?!"

Scarred for life see?

There's also the disturbing "It wasn't a sacrifice, just a con." angle, which will have Christians everywhere doubting their religion.

My biggest worry is how do they expect their kids to trust and respect them if they cant even talk abtou stuff liek that ina film OR tell them the truth. When they grown up and find out he
DID DIE
they'll hink their parents were REALLY thick, and be forever shamed.
