Maybe you’re looking to save a few bucks or the current theater choices just aren’t cutting it. Whatever the case may be, sometimes it’s just as nice to sit at home and watch a good flick. Take a look at this week’s picks for some At-Home Alternatives to the weekly cinema options.

In this series I explore that passion and break down key effects work. Today I’m looking at The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
