Thoughts on The Golden Compass

Short version: I enjoyed it. They cut quite a bit out, but that's to be expected when you're making a film from a book, especially from a book in which that much happens. It probably helps that I read the book awhile ago and am therefore fuzzy on a lot of the details. So even if it cut stuff out and moved stuff around, it still felt true to the spirit of the book to me.

So, as always after watching a movie based on a book, now I'm feeling the need to read the books again... As if I didn't have enough to read already!
