silly daemons

A combination of being between books, having the television schedule chewed up by the writers strike, and the approaching end of the year has left me wanting to see movies more than usual. Tonight I saw the Golden Compass. My expectations were low, but it was much worse than I'd imagined. The acting and special effects were fine, but to use an obvious analogy: it's as if the producers severed the book from its daemon and put the resulting dull-witted zombie script on the screen.

At least the bear fight was kind of cool.
