So, tomorrow at 10:15PM I will be
leaving work to go and see the midnight showing of Narnia. Why 10:15 you ask? Because I want middle row center seats. I am going to ring in my birthday with Narnia. Yesss.tarie
linked to the 10 minute trailer, and although I've watched it already at least 3 times, I decided to again.
I still cried, damnit. DURING THE TRAILER. I feel like such an ass o_O I pity whoever is sitting next to me during the movie :-P I have no idea why I cried, naturally. It could have been the music (which, if its not from the soundtrack to the movie, someone HAS to tell me what its from, because its gorgeous) I think its just because this story is so dear to me. It was the first "novel length" book I picked up when I was younger. I think I was something like 7 years old, and I read it because I had just seen the BBC special on PBS and wanted to prove to my Mom that I could read it on my own.
And I did. Twice, and then some. I spent the entire three weeks I had it out of the library reading it as many times as I could and... I loved it, even more than the tv movie. I read the other 6 as soon as I could get to the library, but this one will ALWAYS mean something to me. It was the first fantasy I ever read, and I've been hooked ever since. When I finally got the books from a friend a few years ago for my birthday, I was bouncing off the walls for the rest of the day. I would still LOVE to get my hands on a first edition set, but that will have to wait.
For now, I am going to finish re-reading the book tomorrow at work, and then head out to see this movie. And from what I've seen in the trailers, it looks sure to NOT disappoint.
This is one of the best birthday presents I could have hoped for :D
