Prince Caspian

Well, it’s a great May for movies.  Prince Caspian, Indiana Jones, and Sex and the City are all coming out this month.  So even though we’re in a recession, I’m forking over my hard earned cash to go to Star Cinema with the comfy seats.  Friday night we went to Prince Caspian.

I have to say I was pretty impressed.  Of the seven books, Prince Caspian is probably my least favorite.  A good quarter of the book is spent on the Pevensie kids lost on a island, eating apples and bear meat.  And when we finally get to the good stuff, there’s a challenge to single combat between Peter and Miraz, and a short battle afterwards and everyone goes home happy.  Yawn.  The movie added some stuff which worked to make the story a lot less boring.  And the guy who plays King Miraz–well done.  Very believable.

Warwick Davis plays Nikabrik–it must have been fun for him to play an evil dwarf for once.  I have the BBC versions of the first four Narnia books and he played an owl and Reepicheep in those.

Of course, it didn’t hurt the the actors who play Peter, Susan, and Prince Caspian are all pretty yummy.  Who knew Narnia was full of hotties?

  1. Did you see “Iron Man”? We went for Alan’s birthday – first time I have been in the theatre for two years, I think 🙂 The movie was really good.
