Prince Caspian Opening Night

May 16, 2008 at 8:15 pm 4 comments

The Hub took us to see Prince Caspian tonight.  Some reviews said the evil character was more so than in the first movie, which I found hard to believe.  I didn’t think so, but The Hub said overall, there was more violence.  Perhaps, but the tone of spiritual evil wasn’t so intense throughout.

My main word of advice is, if you get there right when it starts (no previews for our showing…it’s first), you will be standing in the dark for ten minutes because the screen doesn’t allow enough light for you to find a seat!

Great movie.

Only wish I’d had something to jot down all my thoughts and observations as I watched it.  So many good truths stuffed in there to keep in mind.  I guess I’ll just have to watch it again with pen in hand!

    We were supposed to watch it tonight but it ended up being too late and being that it was a 2 1/2 hour movie, we thought we’d save it for when we weren’t so tired. I cannot wait to see it; Narnia is one of my favoriteeee series. I LOVED LW&W.

    Hey girlie, you were just late, they had a long preview for Wall-e. You’re right about it being dark though, couldn’t see your hand in front of your face for quite a while. That’s why I like to go to the theater in Owensboro, they have the little theater lights, just hate not to give my money to the local theater and Heaven knows I spend enough time and gas driving to Owensboro, LOL. BTW, I did a blog post tonight on it too, great minds think a like.

    I went. I loved it. However, it did delineate from the book. More on that if you ask.

    But overall, C.S. Lewis planted amazing spiritual insight in the Chronicles. I try to read them once a year, because I love them that much.

    Interesting note: C.S. Lewis’ son-in-law, Douglas Greshem, is very involved in the production of the movies. In an interview, he said that he felt the Holy Spirit purposel kept him out of previous productions (BBC ones) until such a time that technology could fully tell the story of Narnia.

    I sincerely hope that produce all of them!

Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)
