The Golden Compass

Re-saw #TheGoldenCompass. Not very good, is it? Jackson’s Tolkein films worked. BBC’s Bleak House & Little Dorrit too …

… Pullman’s franchise could absolutely be adapted successfully, or Alexander/Prydain, or Susan Cooper (’65-’77), or etc. …

… You just need proper $ & time & taste. Not the conventions of the knucklehead noisy kid blockbuster (Cf. Narnia!). Too bad!
