The Golden Compass: Beauty or Blasphemy?

With all the publicity around the movie, I'm curious... do you think The Golden Compass (aka Northern Lights) is too much religion, or just plain fun fantasy?

Does the Irish Catholic Church hate it?


  1. I commented on this before; the comparison between the god freaks complaining about fantasy book being anti-religious (Northern Lights) vs the anti-god freaks complaining about fantasy book being too religious (Narnia). I get annoyed at religious/anti-religous fanatics going mental over nothing. Same as they did with Harry Potter, a load of b-ll-cks is what it is.

  2. I read the books and the religious aspect was so strong, but the film was lacking in anything really, any spiritual aspect was lost in the abridging!
