Tired of seeing Harry Potter for the 10th time? Can't wait for TRON: Legacy? Do you miss the feeling of 3D, but don't think Tangled will satisfy your appetite? Well if you're a fan of Narnia, the latest and possibly final movie, The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader will definitely satisfy your appetite and keep you occupied before the big Holiday fiasco emerges come December 17th. It's not even that it will satisfy you, it's also possibly the best Narnia entry in the entire series. Well, it's definitely better than Prince Caspian, for sure.

Edmund and Lucy Pevensie, the youngest of the Pevensie children, hate living in the shadows of their older siblings, Peter and Susan. So while they're stuck in England during WWII with their snooty cousin, Eustance, the three children get transported back into Narnia, happy to greet the now King Caspian. But to their surprise, they all have no idea what brought them back into the magical land. Now the children along with their old friends must find who or what called them back, and stop it before it destroys the light and goodness in Narnia itself.

I was always a fan of the Narnia series, yes, I even slightly enjoyed Prince Caspian. This one however, was the best one to be brought in the series. Disney probably made the worst decision for a movie's quality, yet probably made a good financial decision. Yes even though the Narnia series are good movies, it seems that the people grew out of it only after the first movie, which I think is really disappointing. The reason why Narnia isn't as popular as it was five years ago is because the US isn't interested in revisiting these four british childrenin a magical land, which is basically a combination of Oz and the world of Harry Potter, with a light dash of Lord Of The Rings blended into it. So if you're a fan of any of those movies I mentioned, which I know you're a fan of, then take the Narnia series for a spin and see how well it fits for you.

I'm making this review short and sweet: this Voyage has fun characters, beautiful scenery, nice CGI, and awesome 3D. This wouldn't be a Voyage I would go on more than once, but it's fun while it lasts. It's also pretty fun as a side-choice to something more dark like Harry Potter and the Lord Of The Rings. Plus also if you are planning on seeing this, try to watch the first two (Disney released) Narnia movies in the series, since they are both family friendly, has just the amount of frights, and are just plain fun. So if you want to escape this world this holiday season, then you might want to travel to Narnia once again, this time on the Voyage of the Dawn Treader.

Hello viewers of this blog,

Due to recent comments of spam and profanity present from obnoxious kids who think they are the funniest people in the world, I would like to request that the comments posted here are in good taste, meaning that they have no Anti-Semitic remarks, profanity, sexual innuendo, or any insults to myself. You can criticize the review and give pointers on how to make them better, but how about we be adults about this. Ok? Thank you, and have a nice day.
