PRINCE CASPIAN movie

I've figured out the main reason why I didn't love either the movie of THE LION, THE WITCH, AND THE WARDROBE or PRINCE CASPIAN, which I saw yesterday.

What I miss in the movie versions is the author's voice. barbarienne pointed out to me that a lot of PRINCE CASPIAN is narrative rather than action. That narrative is what I read so many times, what imprinted on my brain, and what says "Narnia" to me. It's not the characters and events per se. It's seeing them through Lewis' eyes and voice. In my mind and heart, the author's voice is inextricable from the story. Without that, the movies fall flat.
