I knew it would happen. From the moment the opening titles came across the screen, I could feel the nostalgic magic so prevaliant in the first NARNIA movie seeping in, and it stayed that way for me the whole time. The major difference, of course, is the set-up of the story.Read more ›
My ratings are based mainly on the QUALITY OF THE 3D, not the video content.
There are about 51 out of screen effects that extend about 10% of the way, from the screen to the viewer and another 14 ranging from 15% to 25%. Most of the 25% effects are very quick though.
The quality of the in-screen 3D is excellent for a post-production (FAKE 3D) film. This movie was never intended to be in 3D evident by the camera angles and scene framing but the conversion only had one easily noticeable flaw and the cardboard cut-out syndrome seemed somewhat less evident than in other converted films. I'm not a fan of 2D to 3D conversions but you could do much worse.
*** Everything considered I'm stretching ***
*** this one to a 4 star/very good ***
MY 3D RATING = VERY GOOD (poor, fair, good, very good, excellent)
Note: As far as the percentages go, everyone's eyes are different. What I see at 25% you may see at 15% or 35%. To fully realize how far something is out of the screen for you, pause on an effect and direct a partner with an extended finger to the tip of what you are seeing. You may be surprised.

For the most part, however, TVOTDT stayed true to form, following Lucy (Georgie Henley) and Edmund (Skandar Keynes) - along with their easy to hate cousin Eustace (Will Poulter) - through the fabric of a family painting and into the vast tapestry of the Narnian world created by C.S. Lewis and onto the Dawn Treader (the ship in the painting). Aboard the ship the join forces with recently crowned - a year in Earthly time, and three in Narnia - King Caspian (Ben Barnes) who, along with his crew of sentient beasts and willing sailors, seeks out seven Telmarine lords and swords. Almost immediately after they board the Dawn Treader, and unequivocally after they disembark for their first island excursion, the movie begins to take liberties with the original tale. Speaking of tales...Eustace did NOT spar with Reepicheep; he swung the mouse around by the tail. This sort of misguided subtraction by addition is why many fans of the original storyline could be displeased by this movie. Nonetheless, it's still a fantasy-adventure tale in which the characters grow and learn from their tribulations.
Acting-wise, everything was professionally done. Actors and voice actors alike were entertaining (Simon Pegg was particularly good as the voice of heroic Reepicheep), but Will Poulter absolutely stole the show as the obnoxious cousin. I'm not sure I've ever wanted to punch an animated character before. Maybe Scrappy Doo.Read more ›
So overall, an entertaining fantasy film, but a disappointment to those who like Narnia as C.S. Lewis wrote it.

Did they even film the scenes you say are "missing"? Movies based on novels cut things out.

|Why no 3D release?||
There has been some speculation that Fox doesn't plan on releasing any 3d titles until they've released Avatar as a standalone or Star Wars Episode 1 in 3D after its theatrical 3D release... I consider it hearsay at this point, but I think it's possible that they may be holding out for an... Read More

Michael Apted changed the aspect ratio from 2:35:1 to 1:78:1 due to the fact it was his vision to have it play on HDTV's( s he indicated in the commentary) due to multitudes of homes that have them now and wanted it to be a full theatrical experience and no "black bars" showing....this... Read More

Seeing as this is a 20th Century Fox release, there won't be a Disney code included. Disney dropped the Narnia franchise after "Caspian" didn't do as well as they had hoped at the box office.
In other (not completely related) news, Walden Media has announced that they're going to be... Read More
