So here's the preview reel for The Golden Compass:

(I see random tracks from the Children of Dune soundtrack have become the oddly ubiquitous majestic background music of choice, much like O Fortuna or Lux Aeterna.)

I don't know how I feel about it. I mean, there's the whole we-can't-really-portray-the-Magisterium-as-religious-because-it-will-piss-people-off thing, and the fact that they basically booted Tom Stoppard off the project because he focused too much on the Magisterium, but--but! Eva Green as Serafina Pekkala! That one scene of Lyra and Iorek running! I want so much to not like it, but the shiny. Oh, the shiny.

Though I have to admit I really like the casting job they did, I think I will stay far away unless, say, you see it first and say it's good. I've grown to be wary of book-movies, unfortunately. So few of them seem to do justice.
