The Adventures of Tintin

It is not long now until the Tintin movie has its release here in Australia, and I am looking forward to it. In theory a collaboration between Peter Jackson and Steven Spielberg should be good – and one based on the Tintin comics as well. As a kid, the Tintin stories were right up there along with Asterix as my favourites. Of course going by the trailers seen to date it seems more a ‘loosely based on’ style rather than the true to the source style that the TV show a few years back used.

 

In part it is based on the ‘Secret of the Unicorn’ and ‘Red Rackham’s Treasure’ two parter, which was always my favourite. I always enjoyed those treasure hunt style stories, such as in Indiana Jones, The Mummy, The Goonies, Treasure Island, National Treasure and numerous others. I did write, way back in primary school, some stories of that nature, and went back to that partially in Tears of the Mountain. I hope to do some more of those (revolving around Professor Halir of course) in the future.

    I’m definitely looking forward to Tintin – I also loved reading those books, the same as I did with Asterix. I can’t say that I had a favourite though!
