The Golden Compass viewer reviews

I’ve recently spent some time reading user reviews of the movie The Golden Compass on Yahoo.  I just want to point out to all the people there complaining about the movie that a) you are an idiot if you rate a movie you haven’t even seen just because it has a different message than you feel comfortable hearing/sharing, b) America was most emphatically NOT founded as a Christian nation, and therefore this movie is not anti-America, and c) you should rate the fucking movie, not spew your own god damn beliefs and how they differ from the hidden/obvious/subtle/subliminal/obnoxious message in the movie.

I haven’t seen the movie nor read the book, so I can’t review it.  I do plan on seeing the movie, and if I do I will share thoughts if anyone is interested.  I happen to believe in a God with a sense of humor, open mind, and interest in people making decisions on their own.  Therefore, I’m pretty sure he/she would approve of me watching the movie and deciding on my own whether or not it is a good movie.

  1. My ten year old read and enjoyed this book. While we obviously haven’t seen it yet, he did say from seeing the previews that they changed it noticeably from the book. I think it looks interesting though and will watch it at some point. I heard some Christian fundamentalists were trying to keep it out of theaters which is about the most retarded thing I’ve ever heard. If you’re offended by it, then just don’t watch it. Don’t try and ruin it for the rest of it. It’s bad enough how many people have been killed in the name of religion over time. Don’t go killing the entertainment too.

  2. I agree, Rebecca. But then, that gives me a flashback to a bumper sticker my brother and I each bought when we were in college. It said “Censorship – if you don’t like it, don’t look.” I thought it good advice then, and still do. I had a cow-orker years ago who refused to watch Hill Street Blues because he heard they showed nudity on primetime television, and so he believed the show to be bad. Never mind that it wasn’t true – he was in capable of making his own decision because he didn’t check reality compared to rumors he’d heard.

    I just wish I could find more reviews of the movie, not the supposed anti-whatever message.
