The Lion, the Spook, and the Geisha

The critics on this week's new releases.

In this week's audio-only Summary Judgment, Mark Jordan Legan sums up how the critics feel about three new releases: Memoirs of a Geisha, an adaptation of the best-selling book; Syriana, the political drama from the writer of Traffic; and The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Hollywood's effort to bring the C.S. Lewis classic to the big screen.
