Prince Caspian -- Your Thoughts?

It has been 2 1/2 years since the first Chronicles of Narnia movie came out. It was December 9th to be exact and I didn't have to look that up, not because I am a movie fanatic but because I (and many at Grace Church) remember the night with much grief. On December 9th, 2005, the night of the release of "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe," Bethany and Hannah Pearson and Angie Carlson (teen in the Grace Church youth group) were involved in car accident that took the life of Hannah and severely injured the bodies of Bethany and Angie. Their recoveries are miracles of God to this day!

Today (May 16th) is the release of the second move -- "Prince Caspian." (here are the local listings of show times for this movie)

I guess that many of your will go and see this move in the next few weeks and I would like to get your thoughts and observations about the movie. Here are some suggested questions:
Did you like it? Dislike it? Why?
Do you think the movie gives an accurate portrayal of Lewis' book?
What lessons do you think it teaches us?
How does it point us to follow Jesus? Or not?
What was your favorite part?
Where did they mess up in the theatrical version?
Please write your thoughts in the "post a comment" section below. I would love to hear your observations.

Below is the trailer of the movie from Youtube.

Selena and I went to see it last night and I basically spent the whole movie telling her to be quiet because she kept saying "that's not in the book" The end was brutal for her I won't spoil it for you since it's "not in the book" and you won't know about it. I have listened to teh full version of Prince Caspian on audio CD and read teh book and the story was not very familiar to me. It was fun to watch but was very twisted around compared to the book.
