Jo, Janet, Val, David, Ann and I went to see The Golden Compass at the local Odeon. It’s the Fantasy blockbuster for Christmas and stars Nicole Kidman, Daniel Craig and many other big names.
The plot? “In a parallel universe, young Lyra Belacqua journeys to the far North to save her best friend and other kidnapped children from terrible experiments by a mysterious company…”
Most of us felt the film was fantastic – but Ann thought it was boring and didn’t understand the plot!
I think it’s the first film I’ve seen where the CGI animals were so realistic, you just couldn’t tell the difference between the real and the imaginary – super stuff!!
Can’t wait for the next one in the series…
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s! My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community. But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure! On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
