The Golden Compass...

We (as a family) collected Veggie-boy and went to see Golden Compass in Dundee. Wow. Well, the photography and the visuals are amazing. But I just kept thinking of LOTR (visuals, different species fighting), Narnia (animals fighting), Waterworld (flying balloons and 'this girl will save the earth') and Chitty-Chitty-Bang-Bang (stealing kids). Thankfully, Squid had the books, so I'll dive into them to get far more of the back-story. (No - not complaining. How on earth can you get 600+ pages of book onto screen without cuts, etc).


Overall, impressed, but await with some trepidation the next two episodes. Oh. The Steampunk machinery is to die for...
