I read these books long before the movie was in the making. When I found out that it was, I was so excited! These are my favorite books, the story and character development is amazing!
I went and saw the movie on the first saturday it was open. I couldn't watch it that friday because I was out of town on survey. I was very impressed with the interpretation. It was good, at least as much as a movie made after a book can be. The changes they made seemed appropriate for the general audience, and they really played down the anti-religion aspect. Of course, The Golden Compass was much tamer in that aspect than The Subtle Knife or The Amber Spyglass.
I have heard that they may not make the last two because of the turnout of the first one. Is that true?
