Book vs. Movie
If you have not yet seen the film nor read the book, and do not want to know anything about it, i suggest you stop reading now.
For you other, super-cool-alreaddy-watched-it-and-read-the-book-twice-people, i have a few things to say:
I just say the movie, cause it didnt come to the cinemas in norway until 2. july… so I’m actually kind of early!
And i didnt want to torrent this one!
First of all, I did enjoy the movie. It was alot of fun, and many sarcastic quotes and some funny once too “You are a Mouse” haha. (You will get that when you see the movie). And the armor helmet/mask things they had, HAHAHA, omg, what was that all about?
It was something like this 😛 I didnt get that part, but anyway!
The fact that the book is kind of short. I think the movie could have been exaclty like the book and that alot of the changes they did was unnecessary. Like the fact that the kids (Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy) met with Caspian and the other animals that early. I know they are like, the whole NARNIA, but i didnt like that. They could have waited at least one battle before they brought them in!
And the fact that the kids were made “faliors” when they lost the war at first, in the telemarins castle. I didnt like that at all. They are never mentioned as faliors in the book. (Btw, that scene was so sad, when they had to leave people behind, because of the gate!). And just to be clear, I’m not saying that the scenes were bad, or that is was bad in anyway, I actually enjoyed how they made it. But I dont think that they had do do it. They could have gone with the book all the way.
I didnt like that Peter was such a “bad guy” in the movie either. That he and Caspian kind of disliked eachother and it was kind of a battle about being the “big king”. Thats TOTAL OPPOSITE of the book. Cause in the book Peter actually says to Caspian the very first time they meet “I am not here to take over your throne”. So thats was kind of BS.
Aslan came into the movie to late. I think.
The way they made the last fighting scene, where the ground fell apart, and the Narnians came up from the ground, was amazing! I loved how they did that. I actually think the fighting in the book is kind of weakly described. So i enjoyed this!
I actually felt sad at the end, when the kids are about to leave Narnia again. And lucy made me so sad. A tear atually came down my face…
BUT THEN THE WORST THING HAPPENED: (this is TOO american). The stupid KISS betweeen Susan and Caspian, OMG where the hell did that come from? the movie was great, they did almost everything right, and then they had to go and ruin it with a stupic 2 min romance? They could have made a perfectly good movie without any romance!
So overall, I will give the movie a 7/10. The kiss made it drop a point or maybe even two.
Edit: The fact that the Telemarins was spanish like, was weired. I cant understand why they wanted them to be that…
