I saw the Golden Compass movie the other day in the store and decided to buy it cuz it was cheap and I hadn't seen it before. Well I just love the movie and its all set up for the second and third movie, but I found out that its been canned because of religious protests. It's fantasy just like Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, etc. It's a very creative and imaginitive story. I'd really like to see the rest of the movies. I'm sad there aren't any more coming out :(
The books are actually very political in nature. I have all three and read the first one. This reminded me I need to go back and reread the first and then the other two. It has been awhile but the book went on about how the church controlled too many things and had to be contained. It was an interesting point of view. The difference between Harry Potter/Lord of the Rings and The Golden Compass is that the latter book actually talks about God and church vs. the other two is put as good vs. evil. I think you can take the books one of two ways: A) it is just a story or B) you can have kids who think about it and actually do some critical thinking on their own. Not many parents want to choose option B. Most parents say they want independent minded thinkers but what they really mean is they can think independently as long as they think the same exact way as the parents.
