Well, it's only about 40 days until the new VeggieTales movie hits theaters (check out the new official website here), but lots of Christians are talking about another upcoming film, The Golden Compass, based on Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy. Allegedly filled with anti-Christian themes and targeting children, several fans have asked me to comment on the film. Given that I have neither seen the movie nor read the books, any comment I make would be hearsay. But Jeffrey Overstreet at Christianity Today has written a wonderful commentary on the books and Mr. Pullman that you can read here. If you're interested in the books, the film, or the use of film in general to send philosophical messages, check out Jeff's comments.
