    Interesting. 🙂 No Twitter account here, but at least the interview will be able to be seen still.

    I still don’t quite get Twitter. I know just enough to tweet for NarniaWeb.

  • Braden Woodburn says:

    Twitter is a little boring. Why not Facebook? 🙂 Has anyone see the Opinion Poll today? How can people say Prince Caspian was a better sequel than Voyage of the Dawn Treader?? =O

    • thenarniafan says:

      well, for my personal opinion, prince Caspian is better than the third one. Why? Well just because i felt in Narnia, the cinematography, the characters, the story (even it had its differences from the book, but it make me feel that i was in the Narnia I know), for the third one, is a really good movie, but there are some things that i did not like from it, like the fact the the underwater world was not even presented and they just put some CGI water mermaid instead, and that bothers me allot. Still i LOVE THE THIRD ONE, BUT NOT LIKE THE FIRST AND THE SECOND ONE =/.

      • Dylan says:

        I have to agree. Prince Caspian was Narnia, it had the same director as the first one, the same composer as the first, and most importantly the same aptmosphere as the first. The Voyage of the dawn Treader felt completely void of any feel of the other movies, yes it was good, but was it Narnia? It sure didnt feel like it.

      • Braden Woodburn says:

        I think it didn’t feel like Narnia for 2 reasons: 1, they are mostly out at sea traveling and visiting certain places where in the first two they were in Narnia altogether itself in one area. Reason 2 is because there isn’t really much battling going on. We have the battle of The White Witch and the characters in LWW and then we have the battle of the Telemarines and the main characters. I dunno, I am just the type of person who always feels any sequel (for any film) tends to be better than the previous.

      • glumPuddle says:

        No doubt in my mind that PC was better.

        PC was a decent movie. VDT was a disaster.

      • Dylan says:

        I agree GPuddle. For how much hype there was surrounding this movie it was a complete fail. Now I do understand they were at sea, and i guess that does make it feel different, but if Adamson was directing and HGW composing, I think it might have a totally different feel.

    • glumPuddle says:

      It doesn’t bother me that it was different. It bothers me that it was terrible. Cheesy dialogue, bad acting, sloppy story.

      • Dylan says:

        Yeah, the dialoque was extremely cheesy.

      • narnian resident says:

        well, the dialogue was all THAT bad. there were plenty memorable things the characters said (Reepicheep had the best lines!) but there is that one line that Lucy says that makes me cringe everytime. i cannot make myself like it. in fact, thats my biggest dislike of my dislikes.

  • always narnian says:

    Well that’s annoying….I was the first comment and it disappeared….

  • Will says:

    You don’t actually tweet the questions to @CSLewis. You twee them to #CSLewis. @CSLewis will just link to the account

  • Aslan's BFF says:

    And you guys thought it was all over! Whatever is meant to be, will be, aye?

  • Physchoe says:

    Two places of interest:

    1) Must get a twitter account now…
    2) Dawn Threader was a better story than Caspian by far, and thus resulted in a better movie in my opinion. It did not drag on for 20 mins in the ending, and was far more magical. Both were missing interest parts, but Dawn Threader was also more original (not just "we have to fight another war with someone" like the first sequel to LWW). Regardless I love all three, the first is the best and most faithful adaptation of any fantasy novel, period.

  • DaughterofAslan'sCountry says:

    I think I’ve pinpointed the reason for the response to Dawn Treader. I think there are certain parts about VDT that have more of a Narnia feel than PC for sure. It wasn’t that VDT was a bad movie, it was that everyone had very high expectations. PC is a one of the hardest books to adapt into a movie, with the different timeframes going on, and how character building is done in film today. PC was off the book quite a bit, e.g. with Peter being a brat. But it was a great movie, if you don’t compare it to the book. With VDT,we had higher expectaions. They did the same thing they did in PC, taking out elements and replacing them with new ones, but it wasn’t done as well as PC. As a movie, with no thought to the books, VDT wasn’t as well done as PC.
