“The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” snatched the box office crown from “King Kong” during another fierce four-day holiday battle for the top spot.

Less than $2 million separated “Kong” and “Narnia” each of the past two weekends.

“We edged out ‘Kong.’ It’s been neck-and-neck,” Buena Vista’s Dennis Rice said Monday. “These are two great movies in the marketplace that are doing great business.”

Kong is great, but Narnia is better than I thought it would beand has had the benefit of a strong grass-roots marketing campaign.

it started off really well, but by the end it seemed to have turned in to a daytime kids movie... as my friend said, it looked like they ran out of money lol... there were a lot of blue outlined characters near the end

Narnia was ok. dragged too much in the middle section but picked up during the battle scene. The beavers were great though.

On a related note, I saw Narnia with a friend of mine who happens to be Jewish. It was fun watching her throw her hands up in the air a say "oh come ON!" during a few of the somewhat Christian references :lol:
