Our Comments:

We love the books on Narnia so much (the 7 Book Set) and find that, though they were aimed at children, they can be enjoyed by adults.  We never read them until we were 20 years old,  then read them once a year for three years, and once every ten years since over the next thirty years.  

We find, as adults, these films to be somewhat slow moving, and much prefer the books.  However, the Christian children that we know who frequently ask to borrow our set (ages seven and ten) love them so much that they have watched them all about seven times each just this year.
