I read a review that said they didn’t like the movie because it stuck too close to the book, while others say what you heard about deviating too much.
I haven’t read the book in years, but the movie was able to spark memories such that I could remember how the book went for the most part. I think the biggest thing missing is the 3rd-person getting inside people’s heads for their thoughts/emotions/etc. – that’s hard to convey in the film.
If you know the story you can follow along pretty easily; if you don’t know the story I can see you missing things.
I can’t wait for Voyage of the Dawntreader to be released – that was always my favorite book of the series.
saying some extra prayers for you with all that traveling..especially through MASS…dude they scared the redneck right out of me! I remember driving on a two lane highway that became four lanes because the drivers said so..not because the road was marked that way…I was like “Wha! Wha!! What!!, these people are crazier than rednecks” 😯
I took the older two spawn to see “The Lion, the witch and the wardrobe” when it was in theaters a while back. I have never been a fan of the books the movie is based upon (or C S Lewis for that matter, go figure I ‘m an atheistic-agnostic 😉 ). But I thought the movie was well done and reasonably well adapted With all the movies currently out right now I don’t know that “Caspian” is high upon the list so i might be waiting till its video debut to see it.
R – I thought Caspian was actually much better than the first. Partially because every adaptation I’ve ever seen starts with the first book – so it’s ‘overplayed’, and partially because there’s simply more adventure/excitement in subsequent books. I know there’s the usual ton of summer blockbusters to see, but this would still be worth seeing on the big screen (catch a matinee – saves a few $$$).
I’m interested too in hearing more about experiences in MASS…
