Ferdy has an interesting recommendation regarding The Golden Compass:

...all I really know about the movie is what I've seen in the trailer. Nonetheless, I would strongly urge you not to see this movie.

People, we are drowning in movies about children chosen for a great destiny and I'm sick of it. I was sick of it when I saw Eragon, and I'm even more sick of it now.

What the world needs is people choosing to do good instead of trying to fulfill ancient prophecies. I'm sure it's every kid's dream to wake up one morning and discover a great destiny, but the founding document of our nation holds it to be self-evident that no one is born special. That's why we don't have kings and barons running this country.
