A Narnian Journey

Or in this case, rather, a Narnian ride.

The day before, Azleea asked me out to go watch Voyage of the Dawn Treader with her, Aina, and a couple of her other friends and I agreed because I’ve been stuck in this bumhole for too long and I have yet to watch this movie even though my anticipation was at it’s highest peak. It was already such a bummer that I couldn’t watch it on the 9th because I was at Tesco.

Coincidentally, I met Chew Jie & Pei Fong who has come to watch the same movie and also at the same time, which is pretty awesome, I must say.

Before going in, I am going to tell you something. I saw the Easy A trailer on the little TV above the counter and below there it wrote “KELUAR DI PAWAGAM PADA 30 DISEMBER” which is pretty weird because I’ve watched it already and it’s been weeks since it came out in US. I am just saying we are pretty outdated.

And the trailer for I Am Number Four came on before the movie started and Alex Pettyfer and Dianna Agron omg omg that is an epic trailer so the movie should be wicked.

Anyway, it’s the Narnian movie I watched.

And the movie didn’t disappoint. Not one bit.

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but it might even be better than Deathly Hallows (even my anticipation for Voyage was more frenzied than DH for some reason). Maybe it was because I didn’t harbour too high hopes and expectations, and I didn’t sneak some stills from the movie and watch the trailer over and over again, even though I have read the book. It still never failed to pull the elements of surprise at me. And may I just say that almost every actor and actress in that movie is hnng-worthy. Skandar Keynes, Georgie Henley, Ben Barnes (despite excluding Anna Popplewell & William Moseley) all rolled into one movie is just simply A+. And Will Poulter (the actor who plays the horrible Eustace) is a brilliant actor. It was exactly how I pictured him to be. And when Reepicheep sailed towards Aslan’s country and Lucy & Edmund said they weren’t coming back… the tears, oh my goodness. I’ve heard people say it was boring and if you’re having the same opinion as them well dear lord I must say that is a shame. Voyage of the Dawn Treader is possibly the best movie compared to The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe & Prince Caspian, even though the book was a tad boring. And for once, I can say that this movie > it’s book, but that’s my opinion. I know the remaining four books won’t be about the Pevensies anymore and this makes me very sad. I’m not ready for them to go yet.

Okay. Remember what I said that Voyage of the Dawn Treader > Deathly Hallows? Forget I said that. Both movies were brilliant, had their own specialties and I’m not going to start comparing soon.
