Frederica Mathewes-Green Reviews Prince Caspian


imageFrederica Mathewes-Green, one of the featured authors of the Archdiocese, has published a general audience review of the new Hollywood blockbuster movie Prince Caspian, opening this weekend, based on the famous Narnia stories from the Christian apologist C.S. Lewis.

"If in The Lord of the Rings someone is always swinging an axe at the head of a monster, in The Chronicles of Narnia he is getting out of the rain, warming up by the fire, and having some tea and biscuits. . . . But as charming as the Narnia stories are, the movies give them more body, more strength. That’s especially true with this latest, Prince Caspian." Read the rest.

Conciliar Press also has online a piece by Antiochian.org editor Doug Cramer titled Longing for Other Worlds: Faith, Fantasy and Orthodox Christians Today, originally published at the release of the first Chronicles of Narnia movie.
