Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian

Finally in Brussels, since last wednesday. And I wen't today afternoon to see it. Why? Because I love world of Narnia by C.S. Lewis, I read those 7 small books, and my favorite is "Prince Caspian", and the last one "The last battle". So, I couldn't missed those.
I must say, that this episode is much better, than the last one. In first I was pretty angry when I saw especially a moment, when Susan and Lucy were riding Aslan. That was so false, you could see almost bluescreen there. But here... They used the smallest possibility of bluescreen, I think, most of shots where made in nature, or finally they looked like made in nature. Thank you!
Actors played better, than in first "Narnia", but... they're now so big, and older... too much for "one year" difference between last and this episode. But how we can stop growing up kids-actors? That I can forgive :)
Ben Barnes (Prince Caspian), I already liked him in Stardust. So, I was little bit surprised, when I saw him on bilboards as this character in Narnia. I told myself, that then I really need to go and see it even more. And I don't regret. I just loved, how he interpret Caspian. And actor... just to eat him alive ;)
Sergio Castellitto (King Miraz) was fantastic. He could persuade even me to some point of view, when he show some... brilliant.
And those make-ups (appart of Susan, who was made as great beauty... with all do respect, that wasn't how I imagined her. In first Narnia she was good), and everything. Costumes were really nice (but after Curse of the Golden Flower, they're much worse ;).
BUT I'll never go to UGC again! Sound was horrible, sometimes loud, sometimes very silence, colours changes, when they changed tape orwhateveritisinenglish. That made me really mad. Now I can understand my friend from my class, Vincent, why he stopped going to cinema in Brussels: you pay a hell a lot of money (6,50 euro for student! yuyks!) for something of law quality...

Anyway, still I liked that film, it was much better than first one, but I'm one of Narnia-maniac, so it's up to you to go and see it ;) I can forgive a lot of things unconsciously ;) I'll buy it in either way on DVD, but I'll wait untill next year for third Narnia, so there'll be trilogy selling :P

haha, i love that when you say "hell lot of money (6,50 € for students), because in switzerland you pay at least fucking 9 € for any cinema. i think, actually, i haven't been in cinema since brussels, honestly. i'm watching dvds at home. :) but i'll consider the second narnia film, haven't seen the first one because everyone said it was so bad, but this sounds better now.

hell, yeah, I know, you told me. But, next pretty good cinema Kinepolis cost 9 euros too (iiiiiiiiiik!!!!!), just blew your brain out...
And if you're not so Narnia Maniac, you can see it also on DVD, my dear :)
