We are (slowly) reading our way through The Golden Compass and we’re all enjoying it. HBO is presenting a new film version of the books sometime this fall, and it looks very good:
We also have the earlier film adaptation to consider. I think I agree with the casting from 2007 more than this one (you can’t go wrong with Sam Elliott, ever) but apparently that version is a butchered mess dictated by a doomed studio. I’m intrigued to see how the new version is embraced by a longer serial format.
