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.

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

    THANK YOU! Not everything is she who must belongs to she who must not be named....also the he/she who must not be named ain't her idea either.

    the books do not matter, this movie is just ripping off the harry potter movies. that doesn't mean however that the book does anything like this, but the movie came out because harry potter was a massive success and the studio wanted some of that sweet sweet money.

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

    When I saw this movie in theaters (before they changed it) it was spot on to the book.

    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.

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

  • I for one like the book being named The Gold Compass(and it's what the Swedish name translates to), makes a nice plot meaningful trifecta, with the subtle knife, and the amber spyglass

    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.

    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...

    the original series is anti organised religion, not anti religion or anti faith just to clear things up

    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.

    This movie has got to be the biggest waste of a brilliant source material in cinema history. The book is legit one of the best I've ever read and this movie just completely butchered it.
