Lallaye Peter coCEO of Cloud Ten which produced the had this to say about the forthcoming film The Chroni cles of Narnia The the Witch and the Wardrobe Great but theres nothing Christian about Hallelujah Perhaps not since the 1981 best picture Chariots of Fire has there been a film that so subtly and wonder fully appeals to the spirit and lets the audience decide if it wishes to go Com pared to the schlock that has been shown in church base ments over the in which the script would not have measured up to minimal stan dards in any writing class and the acting and directing were so bad that anyone seeking to make a living in this genre would surely have starved to TLTWTW is a masterpiece of counter Everything those awful movies this one It faithfully follows the storyline conceived by the Belfast gigantic Christ ian apologist and Oxford who died 42 years but whose work con tinues to sell and challenge the self indulgent and disbelieving spirit of the Lewis believed in taking on the popular philosophies of his day on their own not retreating into religious In addition to his teaching and during World War Lewis delivered lectures on the BBC on mar the Christian faith and other sub He couldnt have been more main stream than The Chronicles of Narnia The the Witch and the adapted from Lewis popular book opens nationally 9 with one of the largest rollouts in film The Walt Disney along with coproducer Walden have faith that the film will not only drive many Christians and conser vatives to see but that people who dont share Lewis beliefs will buy tickets for the adventure the spectacular special effects and the characters who find faith and courage in a most unlike ly place the mythical land of where it has been always but never Christmas until they This is an important film because it offers a better strategy for Christians and conservatives than Hollywood Movies have been a source of moral controversy from the first one reelers more than a century Politi cians and religious leaders denounced them for scenes that would today seem Most conservatives and rather than advocating for better have been content to boycott make really bad ones or criticize what was being This approach has had minimal influence on the film industry and has contributed little that was positive to the culture With there is no going back to the church This film should slam the door and take viewers to the main It deserves the patronage of all who have lamented the loss of good films and who believe they have a far more compelling and entertaining message than the vio lence and profanity that Hollywood for too produced As with The Passion of the Christ an openly religious film and Chariots of the public must buy tickets to TLTWTW and make this and its sequels big moneymakers for Disney and Large profits are the key to ensuring more good If all of the energy put into the failed boycott of Disney for gay day at Walt Disney World now goes into praising Disney and Walden for creating a magnificent this light will overcome that other Lewis got So will you after see ing this movie and cheering the ulti mate triumph of good over ;
