    Default Adventures of Tintin - a must for the boy's own francophile.

    Take yourself to see Tintin - it's a fabulous film with fascinating technology and wonderful sets - Jacques Tati meets Raiders meets Pirates of Carribean...go for it! Heaps of Tractions!

    Yes, our whole family saw it and loved it. Tintin reminded me of someone but not the actor who voiced him. Maybe he looked a little like Sam Worthington.....?? I thought that Thompson and Tompson could have been more subtly developed, but the wallet room scene was hilarious. Captain Haddock was great. Beautiful street scenes. Got a bit slow in the middle.

    Default adventures of TinTin

    Saw the movie yesterday and loved it.
    A must see for any Francophiles (especially Tractionistes).
    The only "sad" part was near the end when a traction is demolished.
    Happy tractioning,

    But is it any good for a long time Tintin fan....? I remain scared of what the yanks might have done to it...

    Dont worry Hakkon....all good.

    Despite using 3 stories to make one, it still works and a lovely nod to Herge in the opening scene.

    And shouldn't it be Belgaphiles??

    Faithful? Not sure....always the trouble. But it did get me inspired to get into the original which I haven't previously. I think you can just take it for what it is - still a good flick but I can understand how that might be too much to ask sometimes. If you do see the film, I'd be very interested in how you think it shapes up. The citroens and other french cars are great!

    Steven Spielberg is certainly American but 50% of the creative input was by Peter Jackson, a Kiwi. I suspect most of the filming was done in NZ at Weta Studios, certainly all the actors were in NZ for a motion capture boot camp at one stage. Motion capture is an amazing technology, you totally forget that what you are watching is all "fake" (although the actors are truly acting). One rollicking yarn, that is for sure, hopefully it'll introduce a whole new generation to Tin Tin. Well worth the watch even if you weren't a Hergť fan back in the 60's & 70's.

    Wow, I too must see. Sounds great.

    Don't forget to see Midnight in Paris too for different reasons and no Cits on film for memory, but if you are a Lefebvre fan and you want to sus out that cool Parisian artistic scene from the twenties and thirties, it is awesome too

    Brian it is the feature film that is currently showing. Adventures of Tintin I think it is called. Look up your local cinema.
