Movie Review: Prince Caspian

Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian

Good sequel. I can’t compare it to the book as I never read past “The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe”. Come to think of it, I’m not totally sure if I read that. I think I read an excerpt for one of my English classes way back in middle school and then we watched the animated movie.

Simple plot summary: The two sons of Adam and two daughters of Eve are summoned back to Narnia. For them, it’s been a year. For Narnia, it’s been 1300. (Yikes!) They have to help Prince Caspian the 10th take back his throne from his power-hungry/mad uncle, who’d like nothing more than to see his nephew dead.

Review:
It was a good movie. I loved the sword-fighting scenes. Very well choreographed. I would have liked to have seen the centaurs do more, but I was pleased with what was offered. The effects were good, the acting was solid (I thought), and I’m looking forward to the next movie.

Once this movie finished (by the way, you don’t have to stay until the end of the credits if you don’t want to. There’s nothing there) my husband and I had only one thought:

ASLAN IS AN ASSHOLE!

Now, if you go see the movie, you will realize that we came by this opinion honestly. I’m sure the later books explain his disappearance and lack of intervention in the Narnians’ lives but based on this movie — the story so far — he’s a complete jerk.

I don’t say that to deter you from the movie. It’s just my opinion of his character given the situations presented.

Previews:
Hancock – Now, I saw a teaser for Hancock a few weeks ago and wasn’t impressed. I love Will Smith, but the man has a knack of picking movies that he’s too good for. He’s a wonderful actor with great talent, but great acting can only take a bad movie but so far. Upon seeing a longer preview, I’m all for seeing Hancock when it comes out. I’m looking forward to it actually. I love superhero/comic book movies and I want to support them.

The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor – Only Rick O’Connell (Brendan Fraser) and Jonathan Carnahan (John Hannah) return. The rest of the cast is absent. Alex, Rick’s son, looks to be about 15 though Rick hasn’t aged a day. You’d think grave robbing and running from murderous mummies would age a guy, but not him. It’s a Mummy movie, so I want to see it. HOWEVER (caps on purpose), I distinctly remember seeing a similar plot in the Iron Man animated movie.

Wall*E – This looks so unbelievably cute!! Enough said.

Journey to the Center of the Earth – Another Brendan Fraser movie. The man is busy. I’m still out on this one. If nothing else is out at the time, I think I’ll give it a try.

Beverly Hills Chihuahua – I’m pretending I didn’t see this preview and for the life of me don’t even know why I’m including it on this list.

Movie Posters:
This is a new one since I’ve noticed posters but there are no previews… not that I’m looking that hard.

Twilight – This has got to be by the same people who brought us Covenant. Hey, I can’t complain too much. I said I wanted the teen movies (minus the drunken parties) to make a comeback and they have. They just have supernatural elements to them. To which I say, WOOHOO! Bring it on! Hey, what do you want out of me? It’s got vampires. I’m so there.
