The Golden Compass

Jo, Janet, Val, David, Ann and I went to see The Golden Compass at the local Odeon. It's the Fantasy blockbuster for Christmas and stars Nicole Kidman, Daniel Craig and many other big names.

The plot? "In a parallel universe, young Lyra Belacqua journeys to the far North to save her best friend and other kidnapped children from terrible experiments by a mysterious company..."

Most of us felt the film was fantastic - but Ann thought it was boring and didn't understand the plot!

I think it's the first film I've seen where the CGI animals were so realistic, you just couldn't tell the difference between the real and the imaginary - super stuff!!

Can't wait for the next one in the series...
