Having seen 1982’s The Dark Crystal I initially wondered whom was resisting whom because if you’ve seen that movie you probably noticed that at the end that it tied up everything neatly. Looking at the trailer, it looks like Age of Resistance is a prequel and sets up and early chapter in the rebellion (?) […]
The BBC (British Broadcasting Company) is adapting the trilogy known as His Dark Materials (The Golden Compass/His Dark Materials, The Subtle Knife & The Amber Spyglass) as a miniseries, which is a really good idea because if the 2007 movie has shown us anything it’s that the material requires room to breathe.

I’ll be the first to admit that 2014’s Maleficent wasn’t the movie for me, which is why I expect it’s sequel will also not be to my liking.
