The Movies

I saw The Golden Compass yesterday -- VERY entertaining, and I loved its support of free thought, free inquiry, and strong females. It was a visual spectacle, and the sound system in the theater was awesome -- when the Ice Bears roared, it was earth-shaking. I love animals, and the movie was full of them. A minor complaint -- one of the villains had a snake as his daemon (in the story, daemons aren't bad in and of themselves; they are the animal spirit manifestation of each person's personality), and I don't appreciate the continued vilification of snakes.
