12.03.2010 - Unscheduled Friday was the right time to see the regular screening og The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, which I missed the press media screening conducted at the Gateway Mall Cinema on December 1, 2010.

Wednesday traffic was worse as the new month begins, but it didn't stop me from seeing it two days later at the Glorietta 4 Cinema's 3D.

There were no long lines but traffic was even worse trying to catch the 2:50PM screening, that we reserved via SureSeats.Com since funds are not enough to purchase three tickets.

The first Narnia film I saw was way back in December 2006, and it was distributed by Walt Disney International Pictures. A friend told me I don't need to see Prince Caspian, since it's a separate film not connected to the current one that is being shown right now in cinemas.

Though I have not read any of Narnia books since my own copy was taken by my cousin, and traded it with Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code. I have no inkling on what the story was all about, but only the first movie as my only reference in seeing the current one.

The adventure has been pushed to it's standards when it comes to the action scenes. I remember Georgie Hensley was the youngest of the actors, who is all grown up and definitely matured in this film. Though I admit being clueless what happened in Prince Caspian there was not much reference to the previous film. There was some reference to the first film and that's the part which I was not lost missing anything.

Eustace Scrubb was annoying but he was given a lesson in greed. You'll get the idea on how this character comes into play as he was first introduced to the world of Narnia.

This film was in Digital 3D which I'm not a fan of this concept, and I'd rather see it filmed in IMAX camera or in traditional film. There are some films deemed inappropriate of being in Digital 3D and this film is one of those that stayed being in 2D.

Overall it's still nice to see it on 3D but hopefully I'd rather see The Silver Chair shot in traditional film camera. I have mixed reviews of this Narnia film missing the second film but it turned out quite well though I give this a 4 out 5 grade.
