Default The Golden Compass - 12-01-2007, 11:27 AM

Official site is here: Official Golden Compass New Movie Trailers: Eva Green, Nicole Kidman, Dakota Blue Richards, Sam Elliott, Daniel Craig New Movies

I had never heard of the book series that this film is based on before, but judging by the trailer it looks like something I'd like. I'll have to look them up; but I certainly intend to go see the movie when it comes out in cinemas. ^^

If you click on the site, you can get your own daemon (the site will tell you what that is when you click the "Meet your Daemon" link) by taking a short quiz. It gives you an embed, but I find the best way to post the result is to go into your email (it sends you the daemon to your email addy), crop and save the pic within the email to your image host. Here's my daemon below: (I blocked out my name)

It's going to be an awesome movie- my daemon's a whippet. I'd really like to read the books, I just never bothered to look for them. :P

Just a warning for you readers out there- it's very anti-religion (anti-authority too, but mostly against churches, particurlarly Catholicism), so if you're easily offended, I'd steer clear. The author has stated himself that he wrote these books as the exact opposites of the Narnia series, which were heavily pro-Christian.

Though I'm a Christian, I actually enjoyed the books because they're well-written and quite imaginative. I look forward to seeing the movie, though I know it will probably be toned down and probably not as good as I pictured it :P

I'm not really bothered about rumours like that; after all, Harry Potter has been vilified by religious nuts, as has pretty much every decent book you could think of. Yes, the author is an atheist, but so what? That doesn't stop the book or film from being entertaining; who cares about the politics behind it if it's a good book or a good film? It's not like "Burn churches and kill priests" scrolls along the bottom of the screen while the film is playing. -_-

As for the movie, I'm really looking forward to it. I loved the books and hope they translate well on screen. I noticed they did the changing of Lyra's daemon fairly well, so I imagine they'll be able to pull off quite a lot from the actual books. I just hope they don't try to squeeze all three into one. That would make me cry...

I now know for certain that two more are going to follow it.

I'm seeing the film tonight, after fake-arguing with my father on how it isn't that bad of a movie. He says it might ruin my extreme religious upbringing due to its atheist nature xD
