So, what’s so special about The Golden Compass? Nothing. The show ended with the WTF feelings in me. And I need to ask my sons, “Eh, cilaka, tell me what’s so controversial about it? I mean, who is the bad guy here and how does the Catholic church fits into the story? Why are people so cautious about it?”
You can say it is bliss to be ignorant. My son Googled up the controversy and now only I know…..
So….is the movie good? Nay…I am not a fan of Harry Bladder nor LOTR so The Golden Compass is not my genre. I get confused with all those names and all those groups of people fighting each other. I am not sure why but I just can’t connect with a little girl who is too smart for her age. Gimme Nicole Kidman in Hairspray. That is a total biatch. Over here, I get confused with her character. And that Daniel Craig? His character was not fully developed. It leaves you hanging with half orgasm, that kinda thing?
LONDON (Reuters) – Family fantasy movie “The Golden Compass” found its way to top spot at the box office on its opening weekend, Screen International said on Tuesday.
The film, starring Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig, took the direct route going straight in at number one, grossing 5.7 million pounds.
The only reason I think people want to flock to the movie is because people wants to find something to justify their lack of faith or to check out due to curiousity. Basically, it is just a movie of a little girl and some furry animals. Nothing more. Blek.
You know what my 17 yrs old son said? “If you want controversy about the Christian faith, you should watch Bart Simpson. Now, that is really making fun of God. And that is more entertaining.”
So, after movie, we went to Batu Feringghi pasar malam and bought some of these t-shirts. They have nice ones like Starfucks, Unfuck the world, Good Bush and Bad Bush….etc etc.
But of course, I cannot allow my kids to buy some of those. Well, not with the F word.
LOL, COMA ala PUMA
Three tees for RM48. But tourists will get fleeced with RM25 per piece.
