Publisher says upcoming movie and game brand can be as big as Tolkien's mammoth franchise.
Sega has compared the family appeal of its upcoming movie adaptation 'The Golden Compass' to that of 'The Lord Of The Rings'.
Obviously Sega hasn't read the last book. The ending's good but I doubt many people actually get that far because it dissolves into random rubbish for half the book.
The second book's the best.
Yeah right, this story will never be as big as LOTR. Tolkien was pure genius. The movie, the game, none of it will match LOTR.
Sega is nuts!!! This crap is not even close to Lord of the Rings!! I'm not even interested in watching this movie...let alone the game!
means they won't.
The compass books are awesome and much much better than LOTR.
I think the movie and game will suck though and be too child-friendly
I have not read the book or seen the movie but I heard that they kill God in the movie and has a very anti-God message. Im not a religious person or anything but I do not beleive that a anti-God movie is a good direction to push kids. They mask it up like a harry potter/lord of the rings fantasy story but its really just some God hater try to spread his ignorance. This world is in alot of trouble.
the 1st book is a little anti-God. The 2nd and 3rd is more so. Funny thing, some religious activist hates the author because of it. While others are on his side :P Rumor has it Philip Pullman (the author) made this in response to The Chronicles of Narnia series, which is Pro-God. But anyways, my opinion, "His Dark Materials" trilogy has nothing on LOTR.
LOTR books are considered some of the best books written, the movies in my eyes are some of the best movies ever done, Goldan cumpass is nowhere near as good as LOTR.
When someone comes along and invents a half dozen languages written and spoken from scratch... a few thousand years of back story including a really interesting creation myth, songs about its own myths and legends, layer upon layer of moral issues that are relevant to a half dozen different species from their own points of view, and have so many unpublished notes that the next generation can make their own living just by cleaning these up and publishing them ... then they can come talk to me about being near as good as LOTR.
i really doubt it will be as good as lord of the rings ... but idk i guess well c
some people do think this book series is anti religion, it does have those themes mildly but always clearly states that god does exist. as for it being not a good book for kids to read, if religious belief can be shaken easily by a fiction book then that belief probably wasn't that strong in the first place.
most of the protests come from people who have not read the book or explored the ending.
