The Golden Compass

In liue of the next Chronicles of Narnia installment this year, New Line Cinema brings the next fantasy franchaise to the screen based on Philip Pullman's fantasy trilogy. Even though this is based on a children's fantasy novel, the themes in this movie are pretty dark and "controversial" depending on what religious groups you may be affliated with. In the end it is a good movie but more violent then you might want to expose your small child to - in particular the fight between the two warrior polar bears for leadership of their clan. The movie ends with the required setup for the next installment of the franchaise which I am sorta looking forward to. Parents will want to screen this first and then decide if it is suitable for their kids to watch.
