I went to see the newest Chronicles of Narnia movie, Prince Caspian, this past weekend. First off, let me just say that it felt a little weird seeing it without my kids. I guess I need to get used to seeing movies with just Don.
Actually, both of my kids had seen the movie with their friends and highly recommended it. So when Don suggested going to the movies on Saturday night, there really wasn't any movie I would have rather seen. (I'm holding on to hope that somehow my family can see the Indiana Jones movie together.)
I have to be honest... I didn't like the sequel as much as I did the first movie. I think it was mostly because I loved the first one. I had never read the books, so the first movie was original and full of Biblical parallels as well as a fun and interesting story line. In my opinion, Prince Caspian just didn't have the same stuff. Not as many Biblical references and too many battle scenes.
I wouldn't say don't go see it. I've heard a lot of people say they loved it. I had my expectations up too high and, for me, it didn't reach the bar I had set for it. If you've seen it, I'd love to hear your thoughts, or after you see it, come back and leave me a comment.
