Narnia; the myth and the lie.

Today the film version of the book, the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe appears on in theaters all across the world. It is too bad that half of it is going to be a lie… Does that sound harsh to you? Do you recoil in your chair when you read that? Half of the movie a lie?


Well... interesting enough, C. S. Lewis was able to be a spin master that would make Dan Rather turn green. Let me give you a few examples of where Mr. Lewis took Facts in the ere in Narnia that he wrote the Chronicles in the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, and twisted them to fit his plot.

1) The Snow: Winters in Narnia used to last about 30 years. So when the children arrived one day before spring began,(29years 364 days into the winter!) they, and C. S. Lewis, just simply concluded that they had caused the new season. And moreover, that it had always been winter before they arrived.

After the unlawful transferring of power, the new rulers instated a brutal and vigorous plan to create globe warming to shorten the winter to normal earth conditions that they were used to living in. Due to the season shorting, many creatures where sadly and needlessly driven to extinction. Just one fact Mr. Lewis “forgot” to mention.

2) The Secret Police: An unfair, unproven fact! Please note that because of the wise rule of the “White Witch” crime was just about nonexistent. Therefore - it is possible that the police could be so unknown, and their presence so uncommon that they might have called “Secret.”

3) The Statues: A fact, but a cunningly deceitfully, twisted fact. The Statues were in fact tombstones of subjects that died during the long winter season. The ground would be obviously frozen during the winter so burial in the normal way was quite impossible. The kind queen, in her great love for her subjects, invented a wand that would fossilize the dead animal etc, into a protective block of stone until the end of winter when they could be more properly buried. Never was the wand used as an offensive weapon, a lie that C.S. Lewis use’s scandalously and outrageously often in his manuscript.

4) Tumness the Fawn: The fawn was a liar and all-round scallywag who had political ambitions. Ambitions - that caused him to have a great interest in overthrowing the Queen. The Children from the Wardrobe helped him to turn his wicked plans into evil acts. He was arrested for treason (the first arrest in Narnia in countless years), but it was too late. The connection had been made, the lies told, and the damage done.

Well, this movie can't be nearly as twisted as the first movie, which was a real travesty, imho anyway...

Yes, I went to see it Friday night! It was wonderful. They stayed with the story line.

I would tell anyone to go see it and not listen to your way too negative views on something that is so close to the salvation message. Shame on you!

After reading the blog again, Dude you really need to get a life. How about sky diving?? Or is there something negative and wrong with it????

Do you sit around all day and think of negative things to say about perfectly normal stuff??? I really can't understand you!

Has your brain been switched with an alien who hates everything on this earth???

Need some answers here!!!

Uh, narniagirl, hate to tell ya, but I think Tash was being funny.
Maybe you're being funny back?

Oh, if you knew Tash personally, you would know that he might be funny with what he's saying on the blog, but inwardly he agrees with everything negative. Trust me.

Dr Ryo here.

Diagnosis 1-Tash is a very messed up individual who would benefit from multiple beatings from his siblings. This treatment would knock sense into him, lol. I spent many hours coming up with this specialized treatment too.

Diagnosis 2- Narnia girl is jealous. Jealous of Tash's unique view about life. For her, I recommend eating 5 lemons in a row, each day.

As for everybody else, well, ur all just messed up but thankfully I'm a rock of Normality upon which you can cling for sanity! And no extra charge either...

I am not a negative person... I AM NOT A NAGATIVE PERSON!! I NEVER FEEL NAGATIVE!!! AWWWWWWWWW!!!!.....

Ummm.... what did you want me to write? Some boring article about how good the books (now the movie, which I’ll watch when it comes out on DVD...) are? I want what I write to be worth reading. You could go to a billion blogs and you would not find anything about Narnia from my point of view. (please remember that I am Tash)
Trust me...

Rebekah

I think you've got things pretty much figured out...

Whatever. If you knew me, you would know that I'm not jealous. I actually feel bad for Tash. As you said ryu soma, he is very messed up. If only he would go see a doctor.

Maybe all this talk will bring him to his senses!!

Even though I don't completely agree with Tash, I would like to say his interpretation is a little.... unique. I can't call Aslan a mobster. We all realize that Tash is Aslan's enemy, so he's kinda biased, I guess. But remember, I was there too. My story is rather... different from Tash's tale. But hey, since when have Narnians and Calormenes agreed with each other? Still, I think the story was entertaining (albeit slanted). One question--- since when are republicans allied with the White Witch?
P.S. I KNOW NARNIAGIRL and NARNIACHICK'S TRUE IDENTITIES

And please, I like the picture I have on under my name. What's wrong with being a clown? I am a proffesional now, by the way!
Yeah, I play the piano with my clown makeup on and make funny faces!!!! Cool huh???? :-)
Anyways, Tash is right, I think we're all taking it way too seriously! LOL I'm still laughing!!
