With the Academy Awards nominations out I decided to go see "The Golden Compass" today. It's nominated for two Academy Awards.
It's basically a children's adventure movie about a place where people's souls (known as demons) appear as animals that accompany them wherever they go.
Nicole Kidman stars as a sinister woman whose demon is a golden monkey. I kept thinking how much seeing her with her little golden monkey reminded me of when she was married to Tom Cruise. Do you think that was the intention?
I also rented and watched "Surf's Up" which is nominated for an Oscar for Best Animated Feature. I thought it was pretty boring but at least it only lasted for 80 minutes.
