Re: [eldil] Prince Caspian -- the film
- On the other hand, I have seen one opinion that the
Prince Caspian movie was not merely good,
but--*gasp*--better than the book. Eastern Orthodox
writer Frederica Mathewes-Green was prompted by the

- Hmm, well, I don't know. I liked the book, so I don't get all this talk of it being "thin". I didn't like the way they jazzed up the action in the first film -- though giving Edmund a motive for being annoying and sulky was probably a good idea.
Atheists that liked the book also hated the film.
