Prince Caspian

Picture from here!
Two cents :-)
Well, I wasn't really expecting much from it since many other movies are not that great. Haha, that said...It was one of the best movies I've seen in a looong while!!!
Though they didn't stick too closely to the book, they made it so that it seemed as if the characters had grown up since their last visit to Narnia. (which actually they had! they were adults before)
Prince Caspian himself looked too old, but once the movie progressed some, it didn't matter.
Character develpment was hard to spot. Careful hints were here and there, but one would really have needed to watch the previous movie and read the book to really get at it.
...and if you listen carefully, you can hear what a great job the composer did for the movie! Some of the scenes you, could tell, had some parts of the music from the LWW. :-D
Hope you get to watch it soon!
(and if you've already seen it, what did you think?)

"Welcome, Prince," said Aslan. "Do you feel yourself sufficient to take up the Kingship of Narnia?"
<"I — I don't think I do, Sir," said Caspian. "I'm only a kid."
"Good," said Aslan. "If you had felt yourself sufficient, it would have been a proof that you were not. ..."
