Prince Caspian

Ugh, it's like they sucked all the life out of the first. Since the kids know their place and role in Narnia, there's no sense of wonder. It's like they just have to figure out how to manipulate the various rules of magic and tactics of warfare in order to prevail. No sense of danger, either. The brief "temptation" scene is tepid and unthreatening. The battle scenes (probably to get in a PG rating) were pretty lame too, paling after LOTR.

One bright point, which I can confirm now that I checked on IMDB and saw that Anna Popplewell (did anyone ever have a more British name?) is 19. Stone cold hottie. I haven't seen such beautiful lips and dimples in a long time, and the glimpses of cleavage were few but all the more delectable for that.

I avoided Speed Racer after the bad reviews, but now I'm thinking I made the wrong decision.

>>did anyone ever have a more British name?

Let's not forget the two kids from 28 Weeks Later:

Imogen Poots and Mackintosh Muggleton

Strangely enough, Imogen Poots was also dangerously, underaged-ly hot. Though she's got to have had a birthday since then...
