Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian   April 24th, 2010

Originally Written 06/06/08

I got together for dinner and a movie with my old co-worker Scott last night. He wanted to see Prince Caspian and I was up for seeing it again. We went to Chunky’s Cinema Pub, which is always a fun place, since you can get food right in the theater. It was good seeing the movie again. I still found that some of the parts of the story they embellished to make the movie more epic were a bit overdone.

The ending battle scene does go a bit long, and seems a little more supperfluous than the epic battle in The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. The last act is a little overburdened for me, but there’s still a lot to like about the film, especially the first two thirds of the movie. It’s definitely the lesser of the two films, but still enjoyable.

Scott liked it too, though he also commented on the battle’s embellishments. We also both chuckled over a couple of times when Prince Caspian was reminiscent of Indigo Montoya in The Princess Bride. I’d remembered a few lines that had reminded me of “you killed my father, prepare to die” when I’d first thought the film too.

Repicheep was wonderfully fun in this film; Eddie Izzard did a great job with him. Trufflehunter the badger was adorable as well. The characterization, visualization, voice-acting and writing for Aslan still makes me get a bit misty-eyed every time he’s on screen too.
