        WOW!! this looks great!!!

        I can't wait to see the film!! I tired last Sat Night 12/01/07 to see an advance screening of the film, but I couldn't locate a theater in Phoenix having the paid advance screening :O( !!

        I have read Philip Pullman's trilogy "His Dark Materials" (Northern Lights (released as The Golden Compass in North America) The Subtle Knife, The Amber Spyglass)& to me the books are just as good as the "The Chronicles of Narnia"!!

        What is so damn funny is that the Catholic League called for a boycott of the film, just because there are anti-religious themes in the book!!

        (League president William A. Donohue said he would not ordinarily object to the film, but that while the religious elements will be diluted from the source material, the film will encourage children to read the novels, which he says "denigrate Christianity" and promote "atheism for kids." He cited author Pullman as saying that he is "trying to undermine the basis of Christian belief." The League hopes that "the film [will fail] to meet box office expectations and that [Pullman's] books attract few buyers.")!

        I think they said the same thing about "Harry Potter"!?

        I like the fact that Pullman has since said that the books do not have a religious agenda, saying of Donohue's call for a boycott, "Why don't we trust readers? Why don't we trust filmgoers? Oh, it causes me to shake my head with sorrow that such nitwits could be loose in the world."!!

        I can't wait till opening weekend!! I will be the 1st in line!!
