Tintin Movie: Rekindling my Inner Child

I saw the new "Adventures of Tintin" movie a few days back; I must say it was a great experience and I felt like a little kid again (yes I'm geeky like that).

Not only was the animation superb, but the characters' portrayal felt spot on, even after many years of not reading the old comics or watching the cartoons. The story is a mix of many stories from the original comics.

Tintin is still as two dimensional as can be (although he is the central character, he is not the most interesting, as he is a very straight forward character with little depth).

Captain Haddock, my favorite, provides the humor of the movie, and is very well portrayed. Thomson & Thomson are there too!

Of course I'm not into 3D movies... I feel it's just tacked on just to charge you more. I only saw one noticeable use of the effect, and it was not worth having those silly glasses on my face.

It was a thrilling adventure, and even though it was produced by a person I despise (Peter Jackson), it brought back my old memories, and I think I will be watching "The Crab with the Golden Claws" once I turn it into a DVD (I have it on VHS!).
