Prince Caspian : Somebody Else’s Thoughts

From the Wiredblog The Underwire:

Waldorf75: so the second “narnia” film is definitely the most violent PG movie I’ve seen. and from Disney, no less!
Waldorf75: i mean
Waldorf75: this is a film with fatal swordplay, a mass drowning, and — unless I’m mistaken — a minotaur getting an arrow in the crotch
Statler76: Any movie where a talking badger is carried off a battlefield, “platoon” style, is OK with me. It probably shouldn’t be, but it is.
Statler76: As for the drowning, it’s in the Bible! So it must be OK for family audiences.
Waldorf75:: Oh, and there’s also cat bondage, plus a throat-slitting talking mouse

Statler76: Yes, pretty much everything involving Reepicheep, the swashbuckling, mass murdering mouse, is a bit disturbing
Statler76: He stabs people. In the face. And makes jokes at the same time.
Statler76: This is an animal supremacy movie
Statler76: Human casualties are totally disposable.

Statler76: Also: Glad to see Aslan is getting just as opaque, unreachable and riddle-prone as his Judean counterpart. This is starting to feel like real religion, not just mild Christian allegory with big gay centaurs.
