To Narnia, or not to Narnia?

I have a bit of a thing about Disney films. I don't normally take random grudges against multinational corporations, but just from time to time there seems to be a need, and Disney is #1 on my 'world would be better without' list.

I am being tempted to go and see Narnia. The clips look entertaining, the reviews are mostly good (apart from the Guardian one, which seemed to have a rather politicised beef with the book, rather than the film).

My memory is that the allegory is less in-your-face in "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" than in the later Narnia books, so my childhood disappointment when I realised Lewis was trying to sneakily Do Me Good should not be too much revived.

But it's *Disney*... Hmmm.
