Prince Caspian

This is an update to my news announcement: we’ll be watching Prince Caspian right after Bible Study tomorrow, at UA in Emeryville at 10:15pm. If you’re interested (and if you do not have finals the next day), please sign up right away! We need to reserve tickets as soon as possible.

If you’d like to get more info about the movie (without reading the book), Breakpoint has two good articles on it:

    Oh yeah!! I can’t wait to watch this!! The Chronicles of Narnia was definitely one of my favorite series. The others are Lord of the Rings, and Ender’s Game series!

    Just watched this movie last night. I would recommend it, though I have to admit there were some cheesy lines and scenes. Wasn’t that faithful to the book, but was pretty entertaining. If you watched the movie, what did you think? — Movie:0 Book:1

    On Rotten Tomatoes, Prince Caspian got a 71% (anything above 60% is considered to be good). In comparison, Lion, Witch, and Wardrobe got a 75%. In other words, if you liked the first one, you’ll probably like this one. The consensus, according to RT, is that Prince Caspian is “an entertaining adventure worthy of the standard set by its predecessor.”

    If you want my opinion, watch the movie first, and then we can talk. =D

    On a slightly different topic, I never liked the poster for Prince Caspian. Perhaps this is why. After all, both were directed by the same guy.

    I really liked the movie! I havent read any of the books and so wasnt sure what the movie was going to be about but I had watched Chronicles of Narnia when it first came out and really liked it. I liked Prince Caspian because I think it had many good spiritual lessons and insights. It is true that there were some unnecessary lines and plot developments, but overall i think just for the sake of the spiritual lessons, the movie is worth watching.

    I think especially in light of the Bible study we had on Friday with Pastor Manny about living by faith and not by sight, the movie was so appropriate and fitting. In the movie, we can see Lucy having this childlike faith and always trusting that Aslan is present and that he is in control even when all her other siblings think otherwise and end up responding to the physical realities around them. A lot of times living by faith seems so mysterious and is so hard and the physical things just seem so much more real and pressing, but I really liked the movie because it gave this overall picture of what trusting and living by faith looks like. So often we fall prey to being tempted by the physical surroundings and like Peter and Prince Caspian our pride controls us and we try to take matters into our own hands, but in the end Aslan (or God) is still in control and sovereign and makes all things right again.. watching the movie really motivated me to read the books by CS Lewis now!

    the makers of Prince Caspian kept to the original story better than i would have expected… i had heard they were going to make it into a silly pure-action flick, but thankfully this was not so much the case

    Hey Patrick, yea definitely agree. While I liked the action, I felt like it fit the story and heart of the book. I can’t blame them for addition for action scenes, they did have to adjust it for Holywood.
