The Adventures of TinTin






I watched The Adventures of TinTin over the weekend.

I'd heard mixed reviews, so I wasn't sure what to expect. Sure, Steven Spielberg directed it, but I haven't yet forgiven him for Super 8. Still, when I noticed Steven Moffat got top billing for the screenplay credits (he writes most of the Doctor Who episodes these days), I decided to give it a chance. 



It was great fun. In addition to the breathtaking graphics, I loved the fast-paced action, clever dialogue and visual humor. My only issue with the movie was TinTin's sidekick, Snowy. I ask you, what kind of name is that for a dog?

I'd give this 8/10. If you're looking for a fun adventure with some laugh out loud humor, treat yourself to The Adventures of TinTin.

How about you?
