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

Rotten on Rotten Tomatoes (232 movies items)

"42% Consensus: Without the bite and controversy of its source material, The Golden Compass is reduced to impressive visuals overcompensating for lax storytelling."

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

“This movie is well produced and has a perfect role, but I don't know why, the story seemed very boring to me on the way Chris Weitz directed. It could be better, I believe that some important scenes could be more breathtaking, and I got really disappointed with the end, it led me to vacuum because it has no sequel.” read more

"Production Budget: $180 million Worldwide Gross: $372.2 million The Buzz: Before it was released, Golden Compass was a firestarter for religious criticism: it either was, like the book, too anti-Catholic, or it removed too many religious elements that were present in the books. And even though it was pretty DOA in domestic theaters, it did earn the armored bear's share of its cash overseas."
