Everything Wrong With The Golden Compass In 14 Minutes Or Less

  • Published on:  9/18/2018
  • The Golden Compass was definitely a movie that happened. You didn't imagine that. It was a thing. And it went away. Probably because they spent the entire first movie spraying exposition all over the screen. Here are the sins.

    You doing this movie and Avril Lavigne releasing a new song really makes me question what year it is.

  • Raimar Lunardi (Sep 19, 2018)

    Is is just me or he seems angrier with this movie picking things that he let go on others?

  • Henry Blake (3 days ago)

    Because the expectation of this film were so high because it was based on one of the best book series ever written and then they completely butchered it and made the worst film ever. But at least they called it the golden compass and didn't use the actual title do you can ignore it.

  • Bioshock Menolly (Sep 19, 2018)

    10:40 Wow you really didnt read the book. The battle of the armored bears is waaaayyyy more graphic.. the whole story is dark.. and the movie ended like 2 chapters before the book did..

  • Purdue Maia (Feb 22, 2019)

    Version9ex Yes. It’s largely a commentary and criticism of the church and its cronyisms and just generally of religion

  • Dasan (Sep 18, 2018)

    Golden Compass is due for a reboot

  • Clash of Cookie Dough (Sep 23, 2018)

    They were supposed to make a 2nd one years ago

  • Alex Atkin (Sep 22, 2018)

    +Luna Ne The studio ruined it at the last minute, the game is way better, in the correct order with footage cut from the movie. It's so sad as I thought the cast were great.

  • Richard Gautney (Sep 19, 2018)

    To be fair, the golden compass book came out two years before the first Harry Potter book, so... who's ripping off who?

  • Eric Grove (Oct 11, 2018)

    +Richard Gautney The Golden Compass movie is ripping off the Harry Potter movie. I read the scene in the book, and I wasn't picturing anything like Hogwarts. Then the movie adapts the scene, and what does the college look like now? Hogwarts.

  • Raeburn Oliver (Sep 22, 2018)

    Harry Potter is massively ripped off from The Worst Witch series. So I wouldn't be surprised if she stole from other books too

  • Archie Orridge (Sep 19, 2018)

    Its funny because this film was so awful at explaining anything, whereas the book made sense (for the most part)

  • Marta Kuzmina (Mar 31, 2019)


  • Ominous Odyssey (Sep 20, 2018)

    That’s how things tend to work between books and movies.

  • Quill Maurer (Sep 20, 2018)

    The biggest sin of this movie, in my opinion, is that they tried to water down the anti-religion theme of the book, removing a lot of very important aspects of the story and making a lot of the background and motivations vague, resulting in a lousy movie, yet it was still had enough anti-religion, as well as just it's existence from it's source material, that the religious establishment hated it and campaigned against it. Result was that it didn't make either the religious or the secular (especially th...

  • Angie (Apr 5, 2019)

    I feel like this movie failed cuz it just doesn't fit in the big screen. I mean, I bet someone -- literally anyone -- could have adapted the first book into something waaay better than this, but I honestly find it difficult to imagine a 2 hour movie that manages to fit everything the book had to say. So THANK GOODNESS they couldn't go through with the sequels and they're trying again as a series instead.

  • Ronald Duttweiler (Jan 13, 2019)

    The main problem was not realizing that they actually needed to explain things in this movie, not just wait for all the explanations to happen later. Nobody knew what was happening, and they were so sure they would get a sequel, they didn't bother trying to make this movie good on its own

  • Toddpunchify (Sep 19, 2018)

    I mean....it made me aware of the books, at least?

  • TRASH! TRASH! How about I throw the Gold and Compass at you!

  • Gold and Compass is the movie that told me about the importance of eating healthy!
