This is just the middle of what would apparently call a “postsplosion”. However, I’m not a fan of the consonant cluster “stspl”, and I feel like changing the tense for no particular reason, so I should warn you that I am about to postplode. I suppose if we jump back to the Latin that would mean “to clap after”, but I’ll run with it.

So my dad has requested (hi mom and dad!) that I wait to see The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe until I’m in Seattle for Christmas and can see it with him. Presumably this is because the first time I was exposed to the books was when he read them to me, like many other great things we read together (complete with character voices) when I was little.

However, with both the Star Wars prequel trilogy and The Lord of the Rings, I made it a point to see all of the movies on opening night. I have a strong fandom-based desire to continue my streak with regards to epic fantasy movies and continue seeing them on opening night.

This may require a phone call with the male parental unit…

  1. Oh jeez, have you seen the previews? It looks so bad. You might not want to bother seeing it at all, to keep from spoiling your childhood memories. XP

  2. I had the same issue with all 3 LOTR movies and my parents (in particular my mom), but fandom won out over family. She still hasn’t forgiven me, I think….
