movie thoughts: Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian

I really enjoyed this movie a lot more than Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.  Probably because I knew nothing of the Prince Caspian story where as I had watched the old BBC version of LWW and thought they really didn’t improve upon that in the movie, except to make it prettier. Yes, it’s very Lord-of-the-Rings-esque in it’s themes of the true king taking back the throne and uniting the land.  (Yes, I know Lewis and Tolkien were BFFs).

Also, Eddie Izzard as the swashbuckling mouse?  Yeah, it’s hard for me not to be into this movie. 

Even at 2 1/2 hours long, this was really fun to watch.  I didn’t expect to watch it all in one sitting but I was so drawn into the story that I didn’t notice.

The only clunky part was the Aslan storyline, which felt sorta forced, especially with how he defeats the baddies (totally ripped off Arwen hehe).   I’m sure fans of the books will be happy it was included but he doesn’t do anything for me.
