His Dark Materials: The Golden Compass

We have 3 Harry Potter movies left and 6 Narnia movies. However, next year, the first movie from Philip Pullman's "His Dark Materials" trilogy is going to be released (barely a week from the next Narnia film).

Now, I know people say " I read this book and its great", but HDM is not just that.Yes, like HP, its a children's series and very easy to read and enjoy. Like the Narnia series there are themes that focus on religion. Yet, there is something fundamentally different about these books. I can't wait for the first movie 'cause then people will actually get what I'm talking about. In any case, you can download the e-books here or listen to 10 minute samples of the dramatized BBC Radio versions here

Nicole Kidman is playing Lyra's mother in the movies and looking at the few pictures out, she's going to be perfect; sophisticated, icy and dangerous. Did I mention just a wee bit creepy too? Very cool.
Plus, Daniel Craig (of James Bond, Casino Royale fame) is acting as Lord Asriel, Lyra's father. Filming has already begun and I'm finding it difficult to wait for more news about it all.

The only thing left is an Artemis Fowl movie series *hopes desperately* (ETA: oh, and a Good Omens film)
