I am a rabid Golden Compass/Phillip Pullman fan
Okay, I am curious if anyone has seen The Golden Compass. My youngest wanted me to get it, and now it is MY movie. I was so nuts for the movie, I went out and found Pullman's books, and goodness above, they are SOOOO much better than the movie! The movie had a really hard time being made, was protested pretty heavily, then bombed in the American box offices. The rumor is that the sequels (The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass), IF made, won't be in english. Great, another fav movie I gotta read subtitles too....:roll:
Never judge a book by the movie.
Seriously, tho, I highly recommend the movie, and even higherly (if that's a word) recommend the books!! (Too bad we don't have a 'books' subforum....)
Know thyself, know thy horse.
