Bitterly Disappointing

I am a fan of the book, but will admit that it is not brilliant writing. But there is something in the book that makes it gripping and intelligent. But it is very complicated. And there was no way that they could stay completely true to the book. But the screen adaptation has lost that "something" completely. The special effects are marvelous, and costuming and stylization was pretty much how... read more

The Northern Lights books are brilliant, my favorite books. They should have never made a movie out of it, the story is way to complicated. So that movie is nothing but some stupid fairytale with pretty pictures, it just doesn't show what the story is about. It was boring and disappointing.

Movie Reviews (1001-1050) (50 movies items)

" Overproduced project that never manage to grasp the universe heads-on and the rich person gallery doesn't shine as much as it could as I got the feeling this director really don't care about this movie. What it do get right is casting a child actress who impresses me with her acting that overshadow the more established Hollywood faces and I like the unique universe that is created where people can change themselves into animals. A planned trilogy of this film never happened due to people in the"
