J: Don't blame me, blame Christmas.
M: So, Jenna, what's the most important thing you think our readers should know about the newest film adaptations of The Chronicles of Narnia?
J: The fact that we only watched the first one, because it's the only one with James McAvoy in it.
M: And how did you feel about his role in particular?
J: How do I love thee? Let me count the ways... First, I'm not in to bestiality, but if I were, Mr. Tumnus and I would lead a very happy life together.
M: (Pauses for more wine)

M: Was this your first time seeing the chronicles of Narnia?
J: Actually, no. And having seen it before, I really expected to like it this time around. Boy, was I wrong! I found the religious and anti-science undertones far too distracting to enjoy the fantastical nature of the story. Plus Edmund's a nit-wit.
M: Poor Edmund. Turkish Delight: the downfall of many a good boy. So you weren't taken in by Mr. Liam Neeson's messianic purring?
J: I'm trying to imagine Jesus purring right now...It's not working. But no, I wasn't. He sounded condescending and a little bit smug.

J: Honestly, I stopped noticing it after awhile. I mean, everybody had one. It's not like it was special. I liked it, of course, especially James's. (We're on a first name basis.)
M: Anything else you'd like to add regarding TLWW?
J: Hmm, I like the BBC version better. The super, straight-laced version. Not that Lucy isn't 'straight-lace,' but you know what I mean.
M: Wonderful. Well, until next time folks...
