My overall opinion:  

12/16/10 -- A great movie, one of my favorites. I recommend it to anyone! 

11/20/12 -- What an amazing movie. It's family friendly and follows the book closely, getting all the best details (IMHO). It always amazes me when I come back to watch this how young the kids all are! I've grown used to them in PC and VDT. The story is exciting and riveting (AND family friendly -- though younger kids might be a bit scared). Lucy especially is perfect. I still highly recommend it!

Lucy is so perfect I could cry whenever she's onscreen. Edmund's always been my favorite, and I did like his portrayal in these movies too. But Lucy... perfection.
