I went to see Prince Caspian, the next movie in the Narnia series.
There were good moments.
But there were times when I asked myself if something was going to happen, if it was going to end.
The special effects were great. However, there were moments when they were very obviously effects.
Also, I really wanted more in WWII England. And didn’t get it. I feel cheated.
Script: I think the book was Disneyed.
Actors: Well… they had to use the same actors. I am thinking perhaps we may see Edmund and Lucy again. I think little Lucy is the most talented of the young people.
Lucy… light… Dante…. hmmm… I digress.
The sort-of bad guys, Telmarines ("over the far away sea", right?), obviously mislead by a guy with an Islamic sounding name "Miraz", need conversion. They eventually get it, but… the imagery… the imagery….
They are dressed sort of like Conquistadors. Problem, right? They are Spaniards and with a strong Moorish influence, or so it seemed to me. They bear a symbol, and 8-pointed star, which could be Christian or Muslim.
What is going on? Organized religion gone bad? Disney intervening? Dunno.
So, what are we dealing with here: natural religion of happy trees and animals, being "spiritual", as opposed to some religions which is more established? More organized?
I’m just asking.
I will be glad to read your own comments on the movie.
See it if you want.
But if Ironman is showing at the same cinema….
