Tonight we were five who went to the cinema and watched Arn – Riket vid vägens slut. I still haven’t watched the first movie, but I’ve read all the novels. The movie was actually pretty good, for being Swedish. Of course I was annoyed by some of the actors’ voices. I don’t know whay, but many Swedish actors seem to speak too clearly when saying their lines, it doesn’t sound natural at all, and that annoys me.
Now I’ve watched the new Narnia movie, “Prince Caspian”. The movie was very good but you should not compare it to the novel… The basics were the same, but half of the movie/novel (however you choose to see it) is altered. There is a lot of action, a lot of beautiful views and everything is very well-made. One thing that surprised me – in a good way – was that they had obviously thought about the small but important detail that the Telmarins had a special accent!
What is there to do at 4 pm on Whitsun Eve? Going to the cinema! At least that’s what me and my family did. I promise, I have NEVER felt so alone in a cinema before! Hardly anyone was there, and me and my family got a private showing. We watched “Spiderwick”, a fantasy adventure that takes place partly in modern times and partly “80 years earlier”. Three children and their mother move into an abandoned house where their aunt used to live. That aunt now lives in a psych ward, saying that her father was abducted by the Elves.
