Home Sweet Narnia

This is not a movie review.

This is just to say that I went to see Prince Caspian, and my busy, whirring, always-rushing mind (which spent the first minute or so of the film frustrated with myself for leaving my knitting project in the car) was able to settle comfortably, single-mindedly, joyfully into the an utterly familiar world, yet in a vision I had never seen before. There are nits to be picked, certainly (chief among them the re-wording of one of Aslan's most important lines in the whole series), but I don't want to engage my critical eye on this one just yet.

I must say, however, that battle position in the grip of a Narnian griffin is a way cooler (technical designation, that) way to fly than astride any broomstick, hippogriff, or thestral in the Potterverse. And this is coming from a person who thought the best moment in the best film in the HP series so far is the justifiably noncanonical broomstick-board escape from Privet Drive at the beginning of Order of the Phoenix.

I'm looking forward to seeing this one! We opted for Indiana Jones instead on the rare day when we had a babysitter, so it may be awhile... :)
