Forget all the hype, controversy, and hullabaloo surrounding the release of The Golden Compass. Just go see it. It’s an amazing tale, and, if there wasn’t so much focus on certain religious undertones in the movie THAT ARE SIMPLY UNDERTONES… I think more people would be seeing it. I’m refusing to further discuss this supposed controversy because it’s moot. Just see the flick, and you will understand. There’s never any direct connection made. Period.
Parents, families, everyone– don’t be frightened of this movie! Seriously. It’s a wonderful tale of fantasy that I simply loved. Be open minded, and think for yourself. Feel free to ask me any questions about the movie if you are concerned about its content. Just don’t blindly follow hype. This story is too good to be missed because of close-mindedness.
