Not only would I hit that, I'd take it home and keep it. God. Even his voice. Seriously. Wow. I mean--he's pretty. But when he opens his mouth or picks up a weapon, I mean, God. Damn.
Being you know, me, the first worrisome moment I had was realizing that yes, Peter and Caspian really should stop with the sword waving and freaking make out already. Which made me kind of sad and then happy again because did I mention Peter's pretty? And they all kneel a lot? And wow?
Seriously. Caspian. Wow.
Besides that--this was really good. I liked the first one, but this one I really loved. Susan was amazing; I was surprised they used her so much and pretty thrilled with her shooting arrows almost at the same rate of bullets. And I loved that she was a queen here, used to command of her people, in battle and decisions. Lucy was cute. I'm hoping for Voyage they'll go with less cute and more personality. I like she's the one who carries faith, but they were really leaning on her adorableness and unlike the other three, she didn't seem to carry the fact she was a queen here and for some reason that bothered me.
Peter has, shockingly, hostility issues, which are highlighted throughout the episode. He's also still a king to his fingertips; he and Caspian emoted like teenage boys of hotness, and I was surprised how much Caspian could get across with just his expression. Edmund was interestingly sarcastic and kinda made me want to ruffle his hair. He also got progressively more attractive through the movie--it was like watching Clay Aiken in American Idol.
REEPICHEEP ROCKED. OMG. SO ADORABLE. AND I COULD TOTALLY SEE EDDIE IZZARD IN THE BODY LANGUAGE AND THE SARCASM.
More later, but honestly, even if everything had sucked? Caspian talking and Peter with a sword pretty much are worth the price of admission. That is a lot of pretty.
Two special effects I loved:
The trees waking up was damn near breathtaking. And Neptune rising from the river was amazing.
So, yeah. Waiting for Voyage of the Dawn Treader now. Eustace is my favorite (though there's no way they can match Caspian--Jesus. Where did they get him?
Did I mention Caspian's voice? Again. Can we get more of these? I seriously, with no exaggeration, would listen to him recite the alphabet for the rest of my life.
ETA: Caspian's accent is Spanish. I would like to personally thank the nation of Spain and its historical countries for this. A lot.
