Those were EXACTLY my complaints! I was so ready to love The Golden Compass - the art direction, the atheist angle, the Alexandre Desplat soundtrack, Nicole Kidman, Sam Elliott -, but this wasn't even a movie, this was... an illustrated book review or something. They had all the money in the world to make this any way they wanted, but it plays like low-budget soap opera where every character talks and talks about what happened to them just around the corner.

Thanks for finding the words for what left me speechless, Mike. Excellent piece!
