YMMV / The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (1979)

Go To

  • Awesome Music: This movie may be pretty wretched to look at, but to listen to? That's another kettle of fish altogether. Highlights from the score include the Battle of Beruna and the theme that plays when the siblings chase the stag.
  • Ham and Cheese: The White Witch. See Narm below.
  • Narm: The cheesy seventies animation makes for this at times. Mr. Tumnus is particularly narmy, especially during the scene with Lucy that's supposed to be very sad ("I'm crying because I'm such a BAAAAD FAUN!!"). Yes, that line comes from the C. S. Lewis book; no, it doesn't help. Plus the White Witch who practically screams every other line.
    "If EITHER of you mentions the name 'ASLAN' again, he WILL BE INSTANTLY KILLED!!!"
    • Careful there. If the White Witch screamed any louder, she would have blown up Narnia. And as an environmentalist, I'm against that.

    • The White Witch goes into mega-ham mode with this line:
      "HOW will I KNOW the PROMISE will be KEPT?!"
  • So Bad, It's Good: This version of the White Witch thanks to her gloriously narmy performance.


How well does it match the trope?
