The movie version of C.S. Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian premiers May 16th, 2008. I saw The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe when it came out, but I was not that impressed with it. The CGI was spotty in parts, and the child actors were not all that great. The battle scene was not bad, but it didn’t completely “wow” me. The movie seemed to want to be on the level of J.R.R. Tolkein’s Lord of the Rings but fell short. It’s hard to compete with the job Peter Jackson did in translating Tolkein’s novel to film.
I haven’t read Prince Caspian; the only two books I’ve read in the Narnia series are The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe (of course) and The Magician’s Nephew. I really respect C.S. Lewis, and he has been an influence in my writing, but still, I don’t think I’ll go see Prince Caspian. I do like the poster though.
Anyone planning to see it? What are your thoughts?
