Movie Watch- Golden Compass - But there was no Ending!

19 March 2009 at 10:50:07 AM

I had started to watch Golden Compass last year but was put off by Dish's PPV terms. It was the first movie (probably more now) where, once you paid for it, you only had X amount of time to watch it. Better move was for me was to get the CD from Netflix and watch it.

I had heard, vaguely, that there was some controversy about the movie and had no idea what it was except that some extreme reilgious factions were against it. Another point against it was that Nicole Kidman was in it. We can't stand the woman,  but I have to say she played a wonderful evil woman. Cast her next as Cruella DeVille and she'll be in her element.

Anyway, hub and I both really enjoyed the movie even though I suspected at first it was a children's show AND it had some of the same players and elements as Lord of the Rings. I wasn't sure for awhile if it was a LOTR knockoff, especially when the white bear yells RUN RUN as the girl is going across an ice bridge. A little deja vu.

What's most disappointing, though, is that because of the controversy surrounding this movie, apparenlty the sequels will not be made.The movie ended not with a resolution but with a cliff hanger. Of course, so did LOTR but we all knew we'd be seeing the entire trilogy eventually.

What I'm going to do is get the books from the library and read them all. The author is a man named Pullman.
