If you do read the Narnia series I also recommend Planet Narnia. There's a whole lot more to the books then just the biblical symbolism.

Ok, thanks. I suppose I should have read them before watching the movie. I watched one of them and thought it was pretty awful.

To be fair, the movies were pretty bad.

Yeah. I think what bothered me most was that the lion came off as a condescending puppet master type. He acted loving, but his actions were questionable. If I remember correctly, he watched the kids struggle and people die, and then when it looked like all was lost, he came in and roared and everything was ok. It made you wonder why he wouldn't just make things better sooner if he was the only real solution to begin with.
