I don’t like going to the movies. I love it. Everything about it, from the lining up, to the sitting in the dark, right through the whole experience. I used to go all the time, but since I’ve become a parent, it’s very much a from time-to-time thing. Unusually, I’ve had the chance to see two movies of late: King Kong and The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. I thought Jackson was nuts to make Kong, but in the end it’s a good movie. Probably thirty minutes too long and has one too many last minute rescue and one too many bug scenes, but otherwise great. Might have been a classic at 2.25, but at 3.15 it’s good. I dread an extended edition, though. As to The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe: I’d love the book, but this was dull. Marianne actually fell asleep during it, and I didn’t believe in any of the characters or situations. Maybe a two star film.
