    Wow! Ten years. I watched it so many, many times. So much nostalgia. For me, the most important aspect of this adaptation was that they got the atmosphere correct. It made it feel like Narnia. I didn't think the other two movies quite got it right.

    Which version of the film are you using? I have several different version that are cut differently. There are various languages, the extended version (which is great) and there is the education version. Remember that both Walden and Disney have education programs for some of their movies. Which one did you use? Where did you start your counter?

    Using the theatrical version (NTSC). The timecode is based on the DVD. Following the logos, the blue clouds first appear at the 0:00:36 mark.
    (In the YouTube video provided, there is a blurry movie behind the timecode. That should help you see if check if you're in sync.)

    This version of the commentary won’t sync up with DVDs purchased outside North America, because they are in PAL format which runs slightly faster. A PAL version is in the works.

    It will work on all digital files, Blu-rays, and NTSC DVDs.

    I liked the first movie the best of the three. It was the closest of the big screen films (at least so far) to the original books.

  13. Lord know who I am says:

    Aslan, I feel sad….
    I feel tired and losing strength to keep going.
    I can't stay in your house….anymore.
    Hope is gone.
    She is leaving….
    I have no more strength….
    My Lord.
