5.0 out of 5 stars A Must for C.S. Lewis Fans December 14, 2010
Format:DVD
"The Narnia Code" was an interesting movie to watch. I loved getting the back history of C.S. Lewis, from what happened in his childhood to how he became a Christian and his writing. It was also interesting to see his relationship with J R Tolkien and how they fed off each other in the early years and what Tolkien thought about the Narnia books.
Michael Ward theory really makes sense and would explain the "crazy" meaning behind some of the Narnia books. I don't know much about the old ways of astronomy but Mr Ward gives a great explanation behind it all. I even respect the fact there are many scholars of C. S. Lewis' books/life that agree with Ward's theory.
If you are a C. S. Lewis fan or just a Narnia fan this is a great film to watch. You will get some great insight and history on one of history's best authors and debaters and find the hidden meaning of the Narnia books. It's a short film, under an hour long, so it not like one of those long boring documentaries you can watch. It kept me wanting to watch more and learn more.

2.0 out of 5 stars I paid for an infomercial! December 26, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
"The Narnia Code" is a DVD dedicated to the hypothesis developed by scholar Michael Ward that C.S. Lewis' Narnia books had a hidden, underlying cosmology related to the planets of the solar system, the sun and moon.

The DVD gives us a little background of Michael Ward as well as a brief biography of C.S. Lewis himself. Mr. Ward spends a little time on his belief that he has discovered a richer, deeper cosmology in the Narnia books and he expounds upon the "Narnia Code" briefly. There are a number of interviews with various experts as well as Mr. Ward.

In the 59 minutes on this video, unfortunately, very little time is devoted to the "Narnia Code" itself. About halfway through this DVD, I felt as if I had bought an infomercial for Mr. Ward's book (complete with an interview with his publisher). When I say that there was a brief description of the "Narnia Code", I do mean brief. While there is a very good discussion of the the medieval cosmology that Lewis would have studied at Oxford as part of his classical studies and Lewis' belief in a cosmology that had meaning and purpose, designed by God, I did not feel the DVD addressed the subject of the DVD itself hardly at all.

By way of contrast, the Bonus Features includes a fuller explanation of the "Narnia Code" by Michael Ward in which he explains each of the Narnia books and their celestial equivalent. I personally found the Bonus Features to be more interesting than the feature! It includes interviews with three friends of lewis who are still alive, video of the world of Oxford in which Lewis lived as well as the expanded explanation of the Code.

I must admit I was very disappointed in this DVD. I have not read Mr. Ward's book and cannot comment upon his hypothesis and the fact is that this DVD does not explain it except in the barest of outline. In conclusion, I give this DVD only two stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing and mind blowing October 28, 2010
Format:DVD
I saw this on the BBC in the UK. It was an incredible insight into the mind of C.S. Lewis and the chronicles of Narnia. If you're a fan of the books, you'll love this documentary, it's amazing how they discovered this secret but once you see it explained in the documentary you'll wonder how you missed it yourself as it's so simple and the connections with the books make perfect sense. I can't wait for it to be released in the UK

C. S. Lewis is best known among literary enthusiasts as the author of the famed Chronicles of Narnia, a series of seven books that have captured the interest, and fueled the imagination, of young and old alike. But what do we know of the life of this charming writer?

Clive Staples Lewis was born in the late 1800's in Belfast, Ireland. Since early childhood he was fascinated with the cosmos, and because of a series of traumatic events in his younger years, he increasingly retreated into his own imaginary world.

Because of his conversion from atheism to Christianity, it has previously been believed that some of his works, to include The Space Trilogy and The Chronicles of Narnia, were overtly dealing with concepts such as redemption, sin and mankind's fall from grace; Michael Ward, however, might have discovered otherwise.

Michael Ward, the author of the recently released book Planet Narnia, stumbled into a most intriguing doorway to the hidden meaning behind the beloved Chronicles of Narnia quite by accident, as he read one of C. S. Lewis's works one night. The realization that he might have found something significant marked the beginning of a journey of discovery that culminated with a revelation which might shake the foundations of the ever popular novels. Extensive research supported the possibility that Michael Ward indeed cracked a code to enter into C. S. Lewis's unbelievable mind, and his work has brought to surface a much deeper meaning no one before ever detected.

Michael Ward's journey into the mind of C.S. Lewis is recorded in the documentary The Narnia Code, a documentary which tracks the discovery from its onset until the publication of the book. Fans of C. S.
