Prince Caspian

Went to see Prince Caspian with some friends but the film left me feeling a bit disappointed. Obviously, most book to movie adaptations leave plot details out that only really die-hard book fans make a fuss about (case in point, the Harry Potter movies). However, while my personal peeve with The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe was that the animals seemed to have had a tad too much of the Disney magic, Caspian just failed to capture my attention. It was a battle movie. From beginning to end. I found myself having to refer back to what I remembered from the book just to fill in the plot. While I realize that the fight between the Narnians and the Telmarines is a crucial part of the book, it felt like that was the only focus of the film. Maybe I’ll need a second viewing to warm up to it, but I still don’t feel satisfied with these adaptations.
