Gratuitous Llama-ette Movie Review


The ten year old saw Prince Caspian last week with her class at St. Marie of the Blessed Educational Method and came home full of commentary. She seemed particularly exercised by the failed attack on Miraz's Castle and by the love interest between Caspian and Susan, neither of which was in the original, but which the producers nonetheless apparently deemed necessary to add to the movie (in order, I explained, to sell tickets).

I offered that if the gel were to write up her review, I'd be perfectly happy to post it here. The idea definitely appealed to her, but experience tells me that she probably won't get around to doing the essay. Thus, I give you her general summary:

"Let's put it this way: If you haven't read the book, I think it's a pretty good movie. If you have read the book, you probably won't like it very much."

Fair enough, from what I've read elsewhere. Of course, if she does put her thoughts to paper, I'll be sure to pass them along. I myself probably won't bother with the movie.
