She can act. Moreover, she acts very well. And the acting overall is one of the film's strongest points, as TowerDragon explained.RomulusMyDaemon wrote:And TowerDragon, it might not have been one of the worst films I've seen. Just one of the worst I remember, because as a reader and a fan to the His Dark Material series, I personally expected more.
That's still not a fair assessment by any means, Romulus. It's perfectly fair to criticize The Golden Compass for its mistakes, but it's definitely not fair by any means to say that it's the one of the worst films that you remember seeing.RomulusMyDaemon wrote:What's weird is, I've seen clips of the video game, and the characters were actually filmed for it. And in the video game, they finish the story. Why, couldn't they do that for the movie?
This topic has been discussed many times on this board. Suffice to say that there is a reason for the cut, and it's definitely not the fault of the filmmakers.
But, it like was one of the worst films I've ever seen. I truly don't believe in watching television except occasionaly, thus meaning I don't watch to many movies. Besides, I'm a critic, that's just who I am.
