Gene Veith noted this excellent review of the Golden Compass at First Things. The reviewer is one Anthony Sacramone and Veith identifies him as the author of the ‘Luther at the Movies‘ blog. If you never saw the blog, it is a true classic. Anthony would review various movies as if he was Doktor Luther come back to life. His sign off is worth reading in and of itself.
Sacramone is now blogging at First Things and his write-up of the Golden Compass is evidence that his wit and style is still with us (even though he has regretfully dropped his Doktor Luther persona).
BTW, the Golden Compass is the latest Christian attack movie to come out of Hollywood based on a anti-christian book.
