The only bad thing about the hobbit being a trilogy..... tintin 2 is on hold? Can't Post

just watched the film, and really enjoyed it

should have got more than just a score nod at the oscars.

but yes. Peter is to direct the film correct, with extra Hobbit stuff to film, they'll put tintin on hold right?

I was really excited for the Tintin film [In reply to] Can't Post

And after seeing it, I was a little disappointed. I have a knack for guessing the plot/ending/climax of a film before it's happened, and this is one example. Once I'd guessed much of the plot, I was just waiting for it to end. It did feel like it dragged, with very little plot. Still, the technological innovation into making this film was outstanding. And despite all the negatives, it was still nice to watch.

I hope that this extra pre-production for Tintin 2 does it some good.

Loved it as well... [In reply to] Can't Post

Next episode is Prisoners of the Sun, right? I guess it is on hold.... unless Jackson hands out the reins, which wouldn't be inconceivable.

I had never heard of Tintin before it was announced that Pete was attached to it... [In reply to] Can't Post

so I'm no good as a judge.

But I watched the blu-ray at home and was pretty underwhelmed, accept that I liked the 2 undercover police guys. The rest did not make me care about a second film.

You could probably call me a purist [In reply to] Can't Post

As I have been a Tintin geek since I was little, I was nervous about the movie. I tried my very best to approach and view it open-mindedly, but I found the movie truly awful, and I would be more than happy if Tintin was left well alone.
I shall definitely stick with the books.Smile

I'm as sorry for you as I am for... [In reply to] Can't Post

the LotR lovers who were unhappy with the movies. It's very hard when something that you geek over is not filmed to your liking. Fortunately for me, I wasn't familiar with Tintin, so I had nothing to lose. Again, fortunately for me, I love the LotR flicks.

Maybe if they do Tintin 2 it will be done differently, more in tune with your vib. I'll hope so, anyway.

I found it rather a good learning experience [In reply to] Can't Post

Although I was familiar with The Lord of the Rings before the films were released, I hadn't actually read it. My Tintin experience gave me a much better understanding of how some people felt about book to film LOTR.

well [In reply to] Can't Post

I hadn't read the TinTin books either, but I found the film lacked substance; I was not drawn into the story. Impressive CGI, but the characters all seemed rather one-note. If people had said it was wonderfully true to the books I wouldn't want to read them, but if the books are better, then the movie won't stop me from reading them.
