    I love that I can see both your faces while you are both commentating – not just your voices (no offense you both have fine commentating voices 🙂 ). I usually don't hear so much passion and interest for all things Narnia-related from people I myself know. So this is special…

    This was a lot of fun. Kind of hard to believe this movie is a decade old.

    I think it’s an okay movie, I do enjoy it, there’s only three things I don’t like about it. I really hate what they’ done with Peter and Susan. Peter is just being a jerk and every time He speaks, i just wanna smack him, I’m like, “dude, you’re not the peter I remember from the first movie, what’s gotten into you?” And I really hate that they made Susan a warrior because that’s not what she is! I really did not like the Night rade scene, mainly because I was sad that all the Narnians were trapped in the castle and died.
    I did enjoyed the music in this movie and the performances r good. I did think Ben Barnes did a good job as Caspian, it’s just he’s not really how I pictured him, when I think of Caspian in the book, I kinda think of Elijah Wood, I imagine him about Peter’s height, lighter skin and short black hair.
    The only thing that disappointed me about this movie was they didn’t add bacchus and Silenus. I really liked that scene in the book.
    I thought the effects are amazing, like the train station scene, they did a good job on that, and the river god. The costumes r great, my favorite one would have to be Edmund’s fairwell costume.
    And tbh, I like the focus on the Family Radio Theatre of PC more than the movie. I feel the BBC version of it was rushed.

      It's interesting that the equivalent of the Night Raid in the book (towards the end of chapter 7) is played more for laughs with an emphasis on Wimbleweather's bumbling and the mice being annoyed at him. Maybe they could have made the movie closer to the spirit of the book by doing something like that. However, I'm not really sure how they could play a scene like that for laughs in a visual medium without undermining the drama or coming across as callous towards the characters' suffering.

      The Radio Theatre version is probably the best adaptation of the book. The voice actress for the teacher is hilarious. She just sounds so delighted that her students have all run off in hysterics. LOL

        Yeah, I thought that scene where the boys gets turned into pigs. My favorite scene in the book is the part where Lucy wakes up and sees the trees moving and she runs and sees Aslan. That is so beautiful, i was a little disappointed that they changed it in the movie.

    I don't know if Movie Aristotle is reading this comment section but I just thought I'd say I like the design of the dryads in the movies too. Sorry, Rose Tree Dryad.

    Prince Caspian might be my favorite of the series, not only in the films but the books themselves. Even though I love the books, I think this film does a great job at bringing a feeling of reality, politics and so forth to a story in which C.S. Lewis' concise writing style only gives glimpses of. And casting a teen for Caspian was a great idea.

  7. Col. Klink says:

    I've been thinking, and I don't think Peter being a rival for Caspian changes the message of the book. Both the book and the movie take the position that Peter needs to pass the torch graciously. The movie just uses a negative example to make the point and the book uses a positive example.

    Having Caspian decide he really shouldn't kill Miraz to avenge his father's death is arguably more of a change to the book's philosophy since avenging people is considered fine and dandy in the books.
