We Are Not Journalist’s Review: Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the film, and I believe that many people will say this sequel will be better than the original. That is often the case, though, with films these days where the first sequel is better than the original of a series. I just hope that they can continue this wonderful style of storytelling into the third film, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, which has been announced for a 2010 release. Running a little over two hours long, the film rarely drags and you do not feel obligated to sit through and earn your price of admission. It is quite the enjoyable ride, and probably one of the better films slated to come out this summer!
Cam’s Pop-Culture Episodes: It was among the most demeaning experiences of my life, at least it was up until and they blasted the trailer for Beverly Hills Chihuahua at us in deafening digital audio. As I sat there, confoundedly attempting to make some of sense of this cinematic catastrophe, and distracted by the “friendly” Disney SWAT team darting around the aisles looking for video-cameras, I was both amused and angered by the sheer insanity of it all. At the end of the day, we’re just there to see a movie, not declare jihad on the downtown cineplex. It was an ugly look into the ruthless corporate entity that hides behind the Magical Kingdom. In retrospect though, I can see why they were desperately afraid that pre-release footage from Prince Caspian would get out. Because if anyone sees a few minutes of this turkey on-line in the next few days there’s no way they’ll be showing up at the theatres this weekend.
