An audio commentary for the New Line film adaptation of The Golden Compass
is something I planned on doing once I completed my Chapter by Chapter
feature on the original novel.
Though The Golden
is lightyears away from being a perfect movie, on the
first saw in theatres in 2007, it was my
perfect movie and I fell in love with
it, in spite of New Line's efforts to neuter the movie of its
religious content and general pressure on the creative team to make
this a kids movie rather than an all around good movie that kids would
be able to enjoy.
I have a lot to say about this movie, and an audio commentary is the
best way I can think of to share my thoughts with other fans.
My commentary is a .MP3 file that can be played in sync with the film,
which I'll be talking over with my own comments, criticisms, reactions,
and occasionally a mildly amusing remark.
Though the idea is similar to Mystery Science Theatre or Rifftrax, I'm
not trying to be funny with this, I'm just sharing my experience as a His Dark Materials
fan and hopefully giving other fans a reason to dust off their copies
of The Golden Compass
, and perhaps even inject some life into this
somewhat stagnant fandom.
Instructions for how to sync up the .MP3 file with the movie are
included both in the audio and in the readme file included in the
