The Golden Compass
So I've heard a lot about this new movie coming out called The Golden Compass. When I first saw the previews for it at the movies I wanted to see it... until I got an e-mail saying that the movie is based on a book. OK, so it doesn't sound like a big deal. The only thing is, the books (yeah, there's three of em) were written by an atheist author who basically shows the other side to The Chronicles of Narnia- where the children kill God so that they may do as they please.
You read it right. Kill God.
I was obviously disappointed when I read this. I mean, at first I thought it was another chain letter, but when I saw the article for myself, my jaw dropped.
So many children are going to see that movie... I wonder if they know the true meaning behind it?
I was particularly disappointed to know that Nicole Kidman is the star of the movie, since she's known to be a devout Catholic. I love her in everything she does... she's beautiful, she has impeccable fashion sense and she's married to the hottest man on the PLANET! (and i will be seeing him in concert this saturday!! yayyyy!!! ok... i digress...) I was bummed to see that she took part in this, and that they are marketing this as such a great movie. :(
