One year ago today the “Tintin Movie” was shown in Belgium. To celebrate, today I put in some of my favorite scenes of the blu-ray copy I own (and seriously, if you don’t have it in HD…you should). Weta put so many details into every frame…I could follow a specific pirate I hadn’t been watching, a part of Marlinspike Hall I’d never seen…There are so many details!!! Thank you, everybody who made the movie, for doing so.
Sometime in the next few weeks, I will be watching and reviewing some Tintin movies that are certainly oldies, but not necessarily goodies, depending on which guy you talk to. I received as a great gift a DVD box set of the 1964 “The Calculus Affair,” the 1969 “Temple of the Sun”, and “Tintin and the Lake of Sharks.” I have only ever seen the last of those three, simply because I never could find a copy in person and I’m too lazy/cheap to find them online. But on top of it all, I’m going to challenge myself: I’m watching these three films in their ORIGINAL french, because I just don’t trust/like the english dubbing (actually, my DVD doesn’t even have English dubbing. They come in French, Spanish, and Catalan…). I’ll put subtitles on in Spanish to get the words I miss, and I hope it will be a lot of fun, whether I love them or hate them.
Did you watch Tintin today? Did you come up with something special Tintin related to do?
If you followed these posts to the end, thank you. Thanks for holding on there with me while I wait for Tintin 2 to really get going (thanks a lot, whoever came up with The Hobbit 3…now HOW long will it be before Tintin 2 comes out…).
