More evil movies coming up

The latest epic fantasy inspired in books for children full of religious references and with talking animals is The Golden Compass. This is what a critic at Entertainment Weekly has to say about it:

Clergymen who kidnap children. Witches who aren't wicked. Even a pair of sexually ambiguous angels. If you thought Harry Potter was blasphemous, wait till you get a look at the His Dark Materials trilogy. New Line's $150 million adaptation of the first in Philip Pullman's series of theologically trippy novels, The Golden Compass follows 12-year-old Lyra Belacqua (Dakota Blue Richards) as she sets off on an epic odyssey through a fantastical parallel universe inhabited by armor-wearing polar bears and shape-shifting daemons.

Of course, how could we even bear the thought of clergymen kidnapping children?
Let alone believing that witches can other than be wicked.
And finally, angels DO have a gender, don't be confused.

Errr, Harry Potter blasphemous? (yawn)
