Prince Caspian Wipes The Floor With High King Peter



Prince Caspian.
or The Chronicles of Narnia 2, Narnia noobs.
Not a review.
My favorite Narnia book.
(Chronologically, it's the third book in the series, Narnia noobs)
And so far my favourite Narnia movie.
Not spectacular,
Not exactly mind-boggling.
But at least it was entertaining.
And not as bland as the first.
And I didn't want to scream at the screen after the movie.
And I didn't want to kill the film makers either.



Somehow I always imagined Prince Caspian to be more of a kid,
Donno why.
Ben Barnes is pretty good though.
He was the young Dunstan Thorne in Stardust, remember?
A bit wimpy at parts,
But girls will love him.
He's WAAAY better than that sissy Peter.
(That's HIGH KING Peter to you, Narnia noobs)
Heck, even EDMUND was better than Peter.



The four kids still can't act though.
Ok Lucy was still ok (she's a kid)
Peter damn kayu.
Edmund slightly less kayu.
Susan was so-so.
Cleavage rating: 4.
She doesn't show much.
And she isn't THAT hot in the first place anyway.
But she DOES look good when wielding a weapon though.
Hur hur.



Effects not bad though.
The battle was more memorable than the first movie.
Centaurs look better, so do the minotaurs.
Not enough Bulgy Bear though.
I didn't even see him sucking his paws.
But Trufflehunter was cool.
(that's the badger, Narnia noobs)
And Aslan was... well, Aslan.
(and that's the Lion, Narnia no.. you get the picture)
Oh, and REEPICHEEP!
REEPICHEEP IS AWESOME.


(Yes, this is Reepicheep, Narnia noobs)

And speaking of the noble mouse,
They even left in my favorite scene.
The one with him and his tail.
Story was pretty much faithful to book.
Except for one two parts.
Castle Siege my foot lar.
The bad guy a bit too much though.
Looks like King Leonidas.
His helmet also got beard wan, ahahaha.
But I DID recognise a lot more scenes from the book,
More than I did with the first movie.
Which is a good thing.



It's still a Narnia story though.
As in, kiddy, predictable, and of course, Christian-ny.
(Because Lewis's books were very Christian-ny, Narnia noobs)
THOU SHALT BELIEVE IN ASLAN.
THOU SHALT NOT WORSHIP PAGAN WHITE WITCHES.
THOU MUST HAVE FAITH AND ASLAN WILL HELP YOU.
THOU WILL HAVE PROOF THAT ASLAN IS AROUND IF THOU HAS FAITH
THOU MUST BELIEVE IN ASLAN OR THOU WILL BE ROARED UPON
Oh dear, poor D.L.F.
(That's Dear Little Friend, aka. Trumpkin, Narnia noobs)


(Trumpkin's the one on the left, Narnia noob)

Funny, that.
I never noticed how Christian-ny the story was when reading it.
But it becomes more pronounced when you watch it on screen.
And it's more Christian-ny than the first one too.
Maybe people made such a big fuss in the first one,
That he toned THAT one down.
But for this one no one cared anymore,
So they just followed the story.
Which somehow turned out to be more Christian-ny than the first.
Haiyor don't think so much lar.
Just watch it for fun lar.
Sheesh.
