The Golden Compass (no spoilers)

linuxspice and I took the Chthonic Railway downtown to catch the Golden Compass projection lantern show, and it turns out that the London seat of the evil Magisterium is... the Allen Lambert Galleria! (But isn't that in the land of the Skraelings?)

Anyway, the alethiometer predicts that it will be the show of the season, enjoyed by everyone from here to Svalbard. It did feel even more rushed than the early Harry Potter films, though, and ending it where they did put a definite Hollywood stamp on it. And given that they'll probably need to move some Amber Spyglass material into the second film for length as well, I wonder if they won't have to cram far too much into The Subtle Knife.
