Everything Wrong With The Golden Compass In 14 Minutes Or Less

  • Published on:  9/18/2018
  • The Golden Compass was definitely a movie that happened. You didn't imagine that. It was a thing. And it went away. Probably because they spent the entire first movie spraying exposition all over the screen. Here are the sins.

    Does Anyone else remember this movie? I thought I dreamed it.

  • MN Studios (Mar 2, 2019)

    Bryce McKenzie me too

  • Kenez Anna (Feb 6, 2019)

    also Azreal literally wants to challnge angels and god (if I remember correctly) what the fuck movie?

  • Ray (Sep 20, 2018)

    You doing this movie and Avril Lavigne releasing a new song really makes me question what year it is.

  • Richard Gautney (Sep 19, 2018)

    To be fair, the golden compass book came out two years before the first Harry Potter book, so... who's ripping off who?

  • Eric Grove (Oct 11, 2018)

    +Richard Gautney The Golden Compass movie is ripping off the Harry Potter movie. I read the scene in the book, and I wasn't picturing anything like Hogwarts. Then the movie adapts the scene, and what does the college look like now? Hogwarts.

  • Raeburn Oliver (Sep 22, 2018)

    Harry Potter is massively ripped off from The Worst Witch series. So I wouldn't be surprised if she stole from other books too

  • Jack _of_alltrades (Sep 19, 2018)

    *_There are many universes_* 14 000 605 in fact, and I've only seen one where cinema sins does infinity war.....

    +TheCumberCoIlective Oh hush. Just enjoy the joke.

  • Aidan Kohl (Sep 27, 2018)

    Honestly we getting sins on a movie like 10 years old but where’s thanos car?

  • Raimar Lunardi (Sep 19, 2018)

    Is is just me or he seems angrier with this movie picking things that he let go on others?

  • TheFractured Show (Dec 17, 2018)

    This universe apparently

  • AlexanderThe Great (Oct 7, 2018)

    +C Daddy No he does watch them they have more writers now, but at 1st it was just him and Chris.

  • The.Salty.Sarlacc (Sep 18, 2018)

    This movie tried so hard to Harry Potter, it Eragoned itself

  • wolfaesthetic (Oct 6, 2018)

    Movie, book, either way Eragon's (wow, Dragon+E <_<) an uninspired turd.Or a heavily inspired from other sources turd. Tomato/potato.

  • rEaR vIeW (Sep 20, 2018)

    Eragon deserved so much better

  • Archie Orridge (Sep 19, 2018)

    Its funny because this film was so awful at explaining anything, whereas the book made sense (for the most part)

  • Ominous Odyssey (Sep 20, 2018)

    That’s how things tend to work between books and movies.

  • Toddpunchify (Sep 19, 2018)

    I mean....it made me aware of the books, at least?

  • TRASH! TRASH! How about I throw the Gold and Compass at you!

  • Gold and Compass is the movie that told me about the importance of eating healthy!

  • Quill Maurer (Sep 20, 2018)

    The biggest sin of this movie, in my opinion, is that they tried to water down the anti-religion theme of the book, removing a lot of very important aspects of the story and making a lot of the background and motivations vague, resulting in a lousy movie, yet it was still had enough anti-religion, as well as just it's existence from it's source material, that the religious establishment hated it and campaigned against it. Result was that it didn't make either the religious or the secular (especially th...

  • Ronald Duttweiler (Jan 13, 2019)

    The main problem was not realizing that they actually needed to explain things in this movie, not just wait for all the explanations to happen later. Nobody knew what was happening, and they were so sure they would get a sequel, they didn't bother trying to make this movie good on its own

  • Quill Maurer (Oct 29, 2018)

    I just realized how to sum it all up: The biggest sin of this movie was it's futile attempt to not "sin."

  • KitsuneNeko (Sep 19, 2018)

    "Only one that can read it." Is a fault the movie did. She is not the only one who can read it. She just so happened to have one and figured it out. Turns out when you're young you can figure things out faster then those who are older. If the Church didn't destroy them all and banned the research probably MANY people would be able to read it... and she could teach others how to do so. BTW it's easier to reach before puberty apparently as it gets harder to make it work later on.1:33 about th...

    Lyra can read the aliethiomiter because it wants her to dust is sentient and what controls the needle. When daemons die they turn to dust and thst dust can be reabsorbed into the world or ascend and turn into angels (it gets complex here) .But the big reason the church hated this series is because Phillip Pullman was writing thst the first sentient angel to ascend claimed he was god the creater of all to all the angels thst followed and they believed him and so the foundation of religion was born. The...

    +tigerunicornpegases The other movies were never made, but the three books were called "Northern Lights" / "The Golden Compass" (depending on market), "The Subtle Knife," and "The Amber Spyglass"
