Hi all, I'm glad that I came to this forum
I loved this movie and I am a christian but some parts did bother me.
this movie seems intresting, i would watch it if it cam on tv.
Don't watch it. The movie makes fun of anything religious. The writer of the book is an agnostic man who hates Narnia.
Changed my mind. Don't see this movie. It's written by a guy who hates God and Narnia.
I had trouble with this movie. It was well done from a visual perspective, but not so well done from the perspective of storytelling. I loved the Lord of the Rings and Narnia movies, but I had read both of those book series multiple times. I entered those movies with perspective. I had no perspective on this movie and wasn't given any. I spent the entire movie wondering what was happening and why. Maybe I'll read the book and then watch the movie again.
The movie is very well done. Have not had a chance to read the book but will soon.
“Get the girl right where we want her and wait two seconds to get mauled by a bear.” – Magisterium solider motto
Ok, not really, but one must wonder at these soldiers stupidity in this movie. Is it wrong that I wanted the bear to kill everyone? Is it bad that I wanted the little girl to die after 5 this-close attempts? Then I am just a sick, sick, man
Our little epic tale starts as many others, a poor kid (this time it is a girl named Lyra,) is running from a group of kids for no clear reason. Where she threatens their leader who pulls a bipolar and becomes happy after getting threatened (with a poison robe, oh god, not that!) So, Lyra (adequately played by newcomer Dakota Blue Richards) attempts to steal a robe in Jordan College, where she is an orphan living and studying there. Then, she sees a secret meeting (Orphans always get into some huge trouble), where by some weird, weird events, out all these two important men can talk about, they talk about her uncle (god, coincidences are lucky!) So, they poison his drink because he is a free thinker (Oh god, out of all the horrible things, not that!) Well, they make their first no-cigar kill attempt after she pops out of the closet in the nick of time to save her unsurprised uncle Azriel (played a buff Daniel Craig) from certain doom. So, after a magical dust talk (oh yeah, apparently dust controls the universe or something like that, hey it just controls my asthma.) We get to food where a Heepy (hot AND creepy) Mrs. Coulter (played by Mrs. Nicole Kidman) takes a page out of a pedophile’s diary and invites Lyra on a magical trip to the North! But, right before the get in her van I mean ship; she is given the Golden Comp*** or the altheometer, which Coulter wants and two kids are kidnapped! Will she save her friends? Will Mrs. Coulter get the comp***? Will Chris Weitz get lucky and direct a sequel where I have to wait 100 minutes for some bear on bear action?
To round this up, this movie has good FX and OK acting
The book is amazing. I'd like to see what the directors did with it.
