The Golden Compass

Bee n i took leave cos needed to recuperate from lost of sleep from saturday and sunday. But rain or shine, we still woke up at 7am. Last nite bee n i decided to take our 3 cousins for a movie since both of us not doing anything n its school holiday n d kids going back to their hometown. Had light breakfast at Restoran Jamal in KJ and fetched 2 boys n 1 girl (2 teenagers n 1 10 yrs old). Went to OU and catch the 11am show.

The Golden Compass, featuring Daniel Craig, Nicole Kidman & Dakota Blue Richards. Synopsis :
The story concerns Lyra Belaqua, an orphan living in a fantastical parallel universe in which the dogmatic dictatorship of the Magisterium threatens to dominate the world. When Lyra's friend is kidnapped, she travels to the far North in an attempt to rescue him and rejoin her uncle.
She begins a mighty journey to save the universe after learning that a valuable microscopic particle is under attack. should i review abt this movie?? I personally think its a draggy movie. Sooo boring. So far nothing beats Lord of the Ring trilogy. It has many fasinating elements but lack of flair, no punches, no 'ummph'. At the end of the movie, its 'hanging'. I think it definately gonna have a continuation. But it does make my 10 yrs old cousin S fasinated by the film's. I just enjoyed a scene where 2 polar bears fight against each other...the fight was cool!!

After movie, went for lunch. Since the other 2 kids from KB seldom get to eat fast food, they chose to have Pizza. Took them to Shakeys Pizza. After lunch, jalan-jalan and took the kids to One World hotel to have a look-around.

Later had Mcflurry, Chocolate Sundae and Cornetto Sundae at McDonalds before we all left home. But not before going for 1 animal-ride in OU...gosh...i donno wat got into me....i was in those rides....malu....tapi best gak....hehehe
