Of Narnia 'fans'

I'm going to have fun with it this time around.

Yes, I saw Prince Caspian last night. I'm not ready to say something yet because I know as soon as I do bother to THINK about what I saw, raving animalistic fans will start literally pulling my hair out. I need to get some implants ready.

Honestly, someone needs to get control of these people -- oh wait, Disney already did. To quote Trumpkin from the movie: "you get treated like a dumb animal long enough, you become one."

I'm getting sick of reading comments like this from people on the fan sites. These are just for the trailer:
This trailer has literally brought tears to my eyes each of the gazillion times I have seen it at this point and I am not ashamed to say it! This looks like it is going to be a brilliant sequel to LWW...

i'm crying crying crying!!!!!!! ahhhhh! omg omg omg that was soooooooooooooooooooooo GOOOOOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! chills, goose bumps, ohhhhhh

Hallelujah

I am in tears also, I really am. Tears of pure joy. I am so glad I love Aslan and Narnia! It's the greatest feeling of all.

Oh...My...Aslan! This is so fantastic, i cant WAIT for it! I think I'm gonna have a hard time waiting for it to come out! Wow.....OMG THIS IS SOOO GOOD!! IT'S SO MUCH LIKE I IMAGINED IT TO BE!!!!!

Omg it was up on my bday yesterday! Thank u Disney!!!! Having trouble breathing at the moment!

AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!! *tries to calm breathing* I CANNOT BELIEVE IT!!! IT'S AMAZING!!!

That trailer gave me the chills. I know the movie is going to be simply amazing. I can't wait 5 months for this. I want it now.

I am completely of your attitude regarding those quotes. As for the movie, I think you'll be surprised at my review.

Being a general fan of the C.S. Lewis books I was looking forward to PC. The books delved into the internal conflicts of the characters and "growing up". It went over timeless struggles of the human mind. The movie was supposed to project this onto the big screen. Well, in that aspect of timeless theological motives the movie was nothing short of a disasterpiece.

Yep, I said it. It was a Disasterpiece. It's a prime example when someone takes a screenplay of a book and reads from the screenplay with no understanding of what the book is supposed to be saying. Sure, the graphics were outstanding, but the movie as a portrayal of an epic novel was an epic failure.

================================

So anyway, at the end of the movie as me and my son are getting up to leave half the audience is applauding. Um...were they applauding because it was over? I hope so.

Jackie,
I won't be surprised by anything. But I can't imagine how you would have been happy with the end.

Gus,
Thanks for backing me up. I'll admit to be a bit more skeptical of the movies from the beginning, not being sure whether these stories could be projected well through this medium. However, I was left reeling even farther by PC. What a farce.
