Versatile, My Foot!

There's a lot of controversy surrounding the movie The Golden Compass regarding the fact that it's based on a series of books whose writer, a devout atheist, claimed that he was trying to "kill God." (I recommend glancing at the Snopes page; it's an interesting read.)

I'm not going to read the books that the movie's based upon, not so much because I'm afraid reading them will undermine my faith, but because the author sounds like a total prick.

I'm also not going to see the movie. Again, not so much because of it's anti-religious overtones, but because I, for one, am absolutely sick and tired of Nicole Kidman's existence. I'm especially tired of her on movie posters looking like she's ready to kill someone for EVERY SINGLE GODDAMN MOVIE SHE'S IN!

She just has Tom Cruise on her mind whenever she has that look...imagining that he's jumping on Oprah's couch, just imagining Xenu stuffing him into a volcano then detonating it with a nuclear weapon...Ah, scientology...It lends itself to so much fun.

Too tough on Nicole! She may not be the best actress in town but I like several of her movies including COLD MOUNTAIN, FAR AND AWAY and THE INTERPRETER.
