GeekiN Episode #79 – GeekiNput: Comics on Film

Understandably, everyone had a lot to say for this episode. The good news is that you get over 3 hours of content out of the episode. The bad news? I guess you’ll be wearing out those pause buttons. This is a packed episode, including discussion on Marvel, DC, The Dark Knight, Hellboy, Vertigo, etc, etc, etc. We literally discuss just about everything. Next week is the Television Report Card episode where we plan to discuss the television industry and their recent efforts to make the networks geek-friendly.

The Golden Compass Review

The Golden Compass is a series of three novels that I had never heard of until I watched the Pirates of the Caribbean 3: At World’s End, and saw the trailer for the movie. At that point, I was so intrigued in the beautiful world that was displayed, that I had to immediately by and read the novels. I am now partway through the third novel, and I was eagerly anticipating the movies.

Now, don’t get me wrong. I am not the biggest fan of the novels. While I believe the story is a classic and very gripping, the author’s writing style has annoyed me from the very beginning. So with the movies, I anticipated a wonderful movie centering around the engaging story with none of the problems I had from the novels.

I can now say that without a doubt, that I have forgotten about all the problems of the books. I found a beautiful world with interesting characters, and even more beautiful locations and scenes. Unfortunately, I also found a whole new slew of new problems. Which experience was more fulfilling? I’m not quite sure that is a simple answer.
