RE: Rate the Last Film You've Seen
Watched The Golden Compass last night. When it came out 5 years ago, I was still a Christian, moving toward agnosticism. Evangelicals were up in arms about this movie and it's portrayal of Free Thought Ideas in mortal combat with Religion as being even worse than Harry Potter, if you can imagine. Kids reading this sort of atheistic fantasy trash will surely give up the thought of god.

Flash forward to last night...I now wish every kid would read these books and see these movies. Death to the thought of God!!!

Oh, and it gets Thumbsup Thumbsup Thumbsup , for the cool Ice Bear King fight alone!

It was just a fucking apple man, we're sorry okay? Please stop the madness Laugh out load

Read the books - even better. Yes

The trilogy is His Dark Materials; Volume I is The Golden Compass.

This is the kind of caca that was going around Christee Circles circa 2007:

From Snopes.com:
[Collected via e-mail, October 2007]



I don't just generally dismiss a movie or book just because someone
'says' it's meant to be something else...but this is worth knowing if
you plan to see it (or plan to take your kids).



"Hi! I just wanted to inform you what I just learned about a movie that is coming out December 7,
during the Christmas season, which is entitled THE GOLDEN COMPASS. It
stars Nicole Kidman and it is directed toward children. What is
disturbing to me is that this movie is based on the first of a trilogy
of books for children called HIS DARK MATERIALS written by Philip
Pullman of England.



He's an atheist and his objective is to bash Christianity and promote
atheism. I heard that he has made remarks that he wants to kill God in
the minds of children, and that's what his books are all about. He
despises C.S. Lewis and Narnia, etc. An article written
about him said "this is the most dangerous author in Britain" and that
Pullman would be the writer "the atheists would be praying for, if
atheists prayed." Pullman said he doesn't think it is possible that
there is a God and he has great difficulty understanding the words
"spiritual" and "spirituality." What I thought was important to
communicate is what part of the agenda is for making this picture. This
movie is a watered down version of the first book, which is the least
offensive of the three books. The second book of the trilogy is THE
SUBTLE KNIFE and the third book is THE AMBER SPYGLASS. Each book gets
worse and worse regarding Pullman's hatred of God. In the trilogy, a
young girl becomes enmeshed in an epic struggle against a nefarious
Church known as the Magisterium. Another character, an ex-nun,
describes Christianity as
"a very powerful and convincing mistake." As I understand it, in the
last book, a boy and girl are depicted representing Adam and Eve and
they kill God, who at times is called YAHWEH (which is definitely not
Allah). Since the movie would seem mild if you viewed it, that's been
done on purpose.



They are hoping that unsuspecting parents will take their children to
See the movie, that they will enjoy the movie and then the children will
want the books for Christmas. That's the hook. Pullman says he wants
the children to read the books and decide against God and the kingdom of
heaven.



If you decide that you do not want to support something like this, I
suggest that you boycott the movie and the books. I googled a synopsis
of THE GOLDEN COMPASS. As I skimmed it, I couldn't believe that in a
children's book part of the story is about castration and female
circumcision.

WTF?!? There is nothing about circumcision. What is this guy on?

Skimming a synopsis...you don't have to be on anything, you're just simply not reading.

My fav is that there's all sorts of gruesome shit in the bible but somehow that's ok.

Anyways I've been putting that one off. Might have to give it a go.

Ratings modified to fit small screen on plane...

Wrath of the Titans: Plays fast and loose with the historical facts of the gods but not bad as a ripping yarn.

Haywire: Good bit of rough and tumble but good actor's talent under-utilised

Salmon Fishing in Yemen: I liked this one, wit, charm, predictable (in a nice way), acting talent well-utilised.

Man on a Ledge: We landed as it was reaching a climax so no judgement here but the build up was ok.

(2 x Ewan McGregor and 2 x Sam Worthington movies... the Scot wins)

You liked Stardust. I'd put it at least as good as that...although better, in my opinion.

I watched Stardust and it was a good movie. Golden Compass was brilliant, I still can not believe that they did only the first movie and not the rest. How could that not be a movie that deserves the second part?

I assumed the other two were being made. Are they not going to be done?
