11. The Golden Compass (2007)
Based on the novel by Phillip Pullman, “The Golden Compass” takes place in a parallel universe and follows a young girl, Lyra Belacqua. We follow her as she begins an incredible and dangerous journey to the far North, filled with secrets and mysteries. Firstly, the film stars Nicole Kidman, Daniel Craig, Eva Green, Ian McKellen and many other talented actors and actresses. The whole cast is incredible, and they do a wonderful job. Putting into a film such a magic, complex world is a difficult task. I certainly appreciate the courage of director Chris Weitz. Although the music was not something extraordinary, the scenery was amazing while being believable.
