Seems like there's a weird Anti-Narnia conspiracy going on out there...I noticed the Columbus Dispatch had an article Sunday subtley trashing the literary value of the books, which seems kind of dodgy to me, with one of the people interviewed saying that the only reason for their longevity is because people read them when then were kids, loved them, and didn't read them again. Obviously, I disagree, as do many other Lewis lovers I know.

Narnia Hate Watch
By: Paul J Cella · Section: Culture
Here at Redstate we have been struck by the level of unabashed odium that the upcoming film The Chronicles of Narnia has already provoked. Not since The Passion of the Christ have we seen such hatred for a film yet to be released. Thus we inaugurate the NARNIA HATE WATCH.
