Read The Last Battle
Now I'm done. And... hmm.
No comments tonight on it, I'm digesting it all. And finding it impossible to even think of picking up a new book right now.
Went to Target tonight and bought movies!!!
=D $10 DVDs. I couldn't help it!
I got Batman Begins
(FINALLY!!!) and Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves
, the 2-disc edition! With extra footage!!!
My Robin Hood fangirl is squeeing. =D
And I found the BBC Chronicles of Narnia
miniseries and... yeah, I bought them. (Fairly cheaply, too!!)
Been watching The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe
, you're right. The special effects ARE "special." And it's insanely loyal to the book. Down to dialogue in bits.
And I'm getting terribly sleepy. =P
Oddly, it's making me want to watch certain scenes in the new movie, which I just might do before sleeping.
I would like to say that I may have been in the HP fandom entirely too long.
How do I know this?
Because when trying to figure out the Narnian timeline, I realize there are timelines created by others, even possibly using Lewis' own notes.
But I come from the HP fandom, where even JKR's own words are sometimes disputed as being NOT canon, because what she says isn't in the books.
Heck, even her own books aren't considered canon by some! (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
and Quidditch Through The Ages
, that is.)
So. Even though I generally count JKR's word as LAW, it is widely known and accepted that she's horrid at dating things. So sometimes you pick and chose what is canon, when it comes to the Harry Potter
And that very "the author's word or DOOOM!" mentality has so been engraved in my brain. The idea of taking another author's word as canon, even if it comes from C.S. Lewis' notes... grates.
I feel snobbish for this. Or... elitist. Or... some other unflattering emotion. =P That would probably make me terribly unpopular with serious Narnia fans.
(Speaking of Narnia fandom, though, dear fandom: Stop writing RPF and incest. And Lucy/Tumnus. And other things to make my brain bleed. Thank you. And to the RENT fandom: using song lyrics as titles does not make you clever. That is all.)
