I've always wondered why Herge's stories haven't gotten more love. Can't wait for this!

Haddock is the only interesting character in Tintin. If they didn't dial him down, I might go see this.

His estate are complete control freaks when it comes to copyrights, respect of the original story and merchandising.

Plus a lot of the earlier stories have a strong smell of colonialism and racism.

What racism?

haha. But there is worse than that.

This said, the movie looks fantastic so far. Like I said, i just hope they don't dial down the captain's drinking and swearing, because that's my favorite part of Tintin.

Got to see a sneak preview with the kids. Had a really good time. It's definitely a Spielberg adventure movie. For the book enthusiasts, don't let it spoil your fun that it diverts quite a bit from those stories. It's the best parts of Secret of the Unicorn combined with pieces of the Crab with the Golden Claws, with a lot of expansion of characters (especially Saccharin) and omission of others (disappointed that they left Calculus out!).

Loved the little nods to Hergé throughout, like the painting of Tintin at the beginning, and the newspaper being Le Petit Vingtieme. But the look was the most impressive thing about the movie. I was blown away at how real everything felt.

Not an Oscar-winner by any means, but a fun way to spend a couple of hours.

And a I guess technically it uses the last few pages of Red Rackham's Treasure, though the rest of that book is pretty much ignored.

I have never read the books (feeling left out!) but it was a lot of fun. I think the material was treated cleverly and it was def typical Spielberg action.

Also the graphics were awesome.

I'm not sure a huge fan of TinTin but my wife is. She doesn't want to see it because, like myself, she feels that it's going to be 2000'd. What I mean by that is, we feel they're going to trail from the original style and try to make it cool/hip and more up to date with today's standards of being cool. I hate when they do that with remakes...just leave a good thing alone. If you can't keep the trend or theme of the original comics then forget it.

Does anyone know if they strayed from the original theme?

I've not seen it yet, will do this week end, but I've heard that they made it less Belgiumish.

But apparently the French dubbing is much closer to what the graphic novel is.

So, for once, I won't see the original version.
But if you've never read it in French, I guess it's as good as it is in English.

my parents are huge fans of tintin. they told me they have the french translations somewhere in their storage. i read some of the comics in english as a kid. captain haddock is my favorite character.
2 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Thursday 1/12/12 - 3:21:13 PM EST (GMT-5)
if anything they should do the seven crystal balls and prisoners of the sun as the next movie...that had quite a plot.

Haddock is the best. I don't know how they translate all his swearing in English, but he's hilarious.

The English translations are mostly mariner-type phrases "Blistering blue barnacles!" and "Thundering Typhoons!" are two faves. But then the name calling is amusing (and non-sensical). He'll call people bashi-bazooks, or Ectoplasms if they piss him off.

I loved the movie I watched it with my dad and brother.
