I don’t want to say too much right now — I’ve written a piece that I’ve submitted to another blog; if they turn it down I’ll post it here, and if they publish it I’ll post a link. But here’s the gist of what I have to say: I went to see the film adaptation of The Voyage of the Dawn Treader for the second time yesterday, and I liked it much, much better than the first time around. Indeed, I think the trick is simply to let go of expectations. Yes, the story in the movie is different than the book; and yes, I still say the book is better. But the movie has some treasures of its own. I won’t say more now… but look for a more in-depth post (or a link, if it ends up being off-site).
And so see Dawn Treader! If you’ve seen it once, even if you didn’t like it, give it a second chance. I think it’s worth it.
