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

I can't believe the movie got such bad ratings. Books are books, movies are movies, these are adaptations for the big screen. People still enjoyed Harry Potter's books and movies despite the fact that they differed slightly.
Now, I admit I haven't read the Northern Lights series, so I'm really reviewing the Golden Compass movie.

As a movie, it's an enjoyable one for the entir... read more

Review of The Golden Compass

“In the flurry of generic YA novel adaptions currently on the market - a newly created genre that shows no clear signs of stopping before 2017 - one would have to look several years back to remember the book-to-film trend that preceded these. This much more rewarding niche genre was the children's fantasy novel adaptations. Starting with Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone in 2001, dozens of other books/films have attempted to duplicate the boy wizard's box office. And while many such attempts were fairly entertaining (such as Spiderwick Chronicles and Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events), disappointing box office returns (or lack of interest) prevented many would-be franchises from getting off the ground. The Golden Compass suffered the same fate, making very little profi” read more

"By removing the religious subtext from the original novel, they took away what could have been an interesting and thought provoking film."

Young Adult Books: Adapted (44 movies items)

"Based on the "His Dark Materials" Trilogy by Philip Pullman This was one of the more faithful adaptations (None are exactly the same-as we know). It was also pretty well made and had all the talent in it to warrant a sequel. Why didn't it get one? Financial success was good here, but great overseas. A shame. It was pretty good."
