Movie Review: Voyage of the Dawn Treader

This movie came out four days ago here in Australia, and I just went to see it. Of course, it was pretty amazing. And even though I'm definitely not one for all those sword fights -- my mind just wanders away at those points -- I loved it.

And I was thinking while I was watching, What is Narnia, compared to the real world? Like, does Jesus and Heaven even exist?

And you know what? My question was anwered. I wasn't even expecting an answer; my question just drifted off.

Aslan was speaking to them. "Will I ever see you again?"  asked Lucy and Aslan replied, "I will always be with you, and watching you in your world."

"But how?" wondered Lucy. "I have a different name in your world. That's why you've been coming to Narnia; to get to know me a little, so that you can know me in your world."

Okay, so that's not the exact words -- it's not like there was subtitles on at the movies! -- but you get what Aslan's saying.

CS Lewis really did explain this well, didn't he? He was talking about Jesus. And I love that.

  7. Hi, I found your blog while trying to google those lines Aslan said.

    I saw this movie on Saturday, truly touched just like how you did. (and burst into tears while I was all alone in the movie theater...)

    thanks for sharing it. :)

    I'm from Taiwan, by the way:)

  10. I just watched the movie in theatres, and i decided to look up the quote of 'I will be watching you' that you referred to. I absolutely loved the way Christianity was subtly mentioned in the end.
    10/10 :)

  12. M.Cat -- yeah, 3D IS pretty awesome -- even though they keep changing the glasses! ...it's kinda weird that Australia got to see it before America -- when I heard I was like, "Wow, that's a first."

    Anyone read the book? I totally have to!:)

    That's funny how people type in the part about Aslan about the other name in our world, like uh, I think I posted the most randomest review ever. Like who else would call it a movie review? :D
