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.

    Does Anyone else remember this movie? I thought I dreamed it.

  • Kenez Anna (Feb 6, 2019)

    also Azreal literally wants to challnge angels and god (if I remember correctly) what the fuck movie?

  • Kenez Anna (Feb 6, 2019)

    i remember watching it and being irritated for being so different from the books. Like how did you managed to leave out almost all the important shit out of it? (and we are getting a reboot tv series now that the books going to get another trilogy sequel thing? I hope they don't fuck that up!)

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

  • 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

  • Aidan Kohl (Sep 27, 2018)

    Honestly we getting sins on a movie like 10 years old but where’s thanos car?

  • Raimar Lunardi (Sep 19, 2018)

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

    +C Daddy No he does watch them they have more writers now, but at 1st it was just him and Chris.

  • nickynak3 (Sep 18, 2018)

    This film is heartbreaking because they had a fantastic story, gorgeous visuals and a stellar cast, but still managed to make a crap film? I just don't understand how they managed it.

    Pseudo Legion And Haven On SYFY, Imagine Greater, Ding!

  • Jay Barry (Sep 20, 2018)

    The studio was after the next Harry Potter but didn’t want to offend the church. So they cut out the elements dealing with religion, which is a lot of them. The studio execs didn’t read the other books, the second one has a main character who spends nearly half the book with two fingers cut off!

  • 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)

  • Savannah Miracle (Sep 20, 2018)

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

  • SHOOKEN (Sep 18, 2018)

    I always had a soft spot for this film. The books were so fantastic and the casting and art direction/special effects were brilliant, but the script didn't do the book justice. If it had, I can't even imagine how amazing the rest of the books would have been while being brought to life! But I kind of understand why the film was so lacking though. All three or four books are extremely long and detailed. About 50% of the second book alone would have to be cut for an adaptation. They would have been the c...

    I remember it was my fav movie when i was a kid but none of my friends watched so i guess i forgot about it but now i found the book 1 and i'm gonna read it :3

  • Druid Riley (Sep 28, 2018)

    I read all 3 books and wondered how ANYone could think these are kid friendly books

    "Invisible! Intangible! Inaccessible!"Incomprehensible!Inconsequential!Inedible!.....what, no Vizzini yelling "Inconceivable!" ? Shame, CinemaSins. Shame.

  • 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!
