I saw Golden Compass...
... and I loved it! The characters were very true to how they were in the books. The movie did a few scenes showing what various characters were doing while Lyra was occupied. See, the book Northern Lights was from Lyra's perspective. This mostly was too, but there were times when they had other characters explain the plots and subplots for the audience. It worked well.
Ah Pan. I really enjoyed him. I loved seeing Lyra just as much. Lee and Hester were great as well.
They did cut out the last two chapters, were Lyra and Rodger fell from Lee's balloon, where they meet up with Lord Asreal and the final part where the doorway to Cittizee (I know I have that name wrong) opens and she walks through.
That's saved for the next. Those parts are in pics and on the previews so it's filled and ready. They had better cast and film the rest soon before Dakoda Blue Richards is too old for Lyra.
Anyway, I loved it. I can't wait to own it.
I certainly want more!
