The Golden Compass is, IMNSHO, a brilliant movie, if for nothing more than the beautiful imagery of Lyra riding on Iorek's gigantic polar bear back across snow filled arctic landscapes.

The rest of the world is proving, once again, that they have better sense than Americans about these things. Of course the strange wierd authoritarian anti-anti-authoritarian church doesn't have the same inroads in the rest of the west that it has here. Not by a mile.

Free thinkers should unite and go see the movie. Twice. A sort of anti boycott.

I loved it too (I expect you saw my comments) although I think the book is even better.

yes I agree the book is actually quite a bit better. As is often the case.
