Golden Compass's watered down movie

Lame to the max.  Interesting twist on how the government and the church no longer need to pressure the media... mere dollars are pressure enough.  I bet real money that something's gonna happen with Tom Stoppard's original script.

New York looked at Tom Stoppard's script and said that it wasn't that great. It sounds like the real damage was what happened to Chris Weitz's version.

Yikes. I don't know much about it other than 2z is reading the book and wants to see the movie. But now I've read this article and want to read the book.

I still sort of boggle at the idea that it takes $180M to make a movie these days, even with awesome effects and actors or whatever. If it could be done more cheaply, it would be less of a risk, and could retain more of its soul.
