So you say you're excited about Narnia...

...but have you read the detailed plotline that Narniaweb just posted?


Weirder and weirder.

Now you know I liked Prince Caspian. But honestly, this seems to be taking things a bit too far. I'm not even sure I can say I think it'll still be a good movie, because the sword thing just comes across as really weird.

So does the darkness.

Is it just me, or do these elements seem completely non-Narnian to you?

(The filmmakers really should take some lessons from the screenwriters of the HP movies. I mean, those adaptations haven't always been perfect, but they've been a heck of a lot better than the Narnia adaptations! I mean, in the HP movies, they actually use book dialogue in the right places and follow the actual storyline and use British words!)

The Sword thing is... okay? I guess? I'm okay with adding an overarching plotline. I'm just afraid it'll subtract too much from the whimsical adventure bit that is Dawn Treader.
As long as Eustace's transformation bit is theologically faithful, I'm good.

Oh great... and I was looking forward to the movie, since it's one of my favorite Narnia books.
Why, oh why must they recreate the entire plot, and take away the meaning of the movie?

Wow! That just seems strange and weird and awful. I am scared to see it now! :(

I'm actually really excited about it! Yes, it's a bit weird, but I think it looks awesome. *shrugs* I'm known for having a weird taste in movies.
