    Yeah, it's for real. You have to live in Belgium to fully understand it tongue

    TinTin, also known as Kuifje (don't ask me for a literal translation of that name: trust me on this one) is a typical Belgian hero. Y'know, a little dorky schoolboy, but always ready for adventure with his little doggie, made up by Herge, a man from Brussels. I'm just glad Spielberg wasn't a fan of Suske & Wiske.

    A travelogue too with Tintin exploring many exotic locations.

    Spielberg is making Tintin with Peter Jackson. Spielberg directs one movie and Jackson the other.

    And they'll ask another director of their stature to direct the third one. Brett Ratner is in talks*.

    Still don't see why this bothers you? It was a childhood favorite of Spielberg's so there is an emotional connection there. I'm really interested to see what Spielberg and Jackson are going to do... and Williams doing animation.... YUM! lick

    Hey hey hey!

    Tintin (or Kuifje in Dutch) is a great comic series! 22 albums which I've read all! I loved them. It had everything, adventure, political issues (and even now, the books raise discussions), even some scifi. The album Destination Moon was written many years before the moon landing and was actually quite accurate!!

    I think it's already a long time planned project of SPielberg. He always wanted to direct one of the stories.

    Agree. A very popular character in Belgium, Spain, France, The Netherlands, etc, and as James has said, it brings back loads of childhood memories. Now that´s the Spielberg I´m looking for.
    Anything with an orchestra or with a choir....at some point will reach you
  1. Just out of interest and slightly off the current trend.

    What are eveyones feelings towards Harry Potter and the chamber of secrets. I listened to it today, and there was a lot of good, varied action cues, along with supporting temes for lockhart and dobby. To cap it all off the exquisite fawkes theme is for me the most beuatiful cue of the last 10 years. From what I remember (which could very well be worng) there is some negativity towards this score, but I love pretty much every minute of it!

    Discuss!!
    If in doubt, let the wookie win

    I just listened to that score a few minutes ago and if you could transplant Spiders and Dueling the Basilisk into Indy IV then I think my view of the score would change. IMHO, those two action cues in Chambers are exactly what I was hoping for in Indy IV. Hell, replace "The Jungle Chase" with "The Whomping Willow" from Prisoner of Azkaban. Now that's what I call a classic Williams action cue. I absolutely LOVE that six note motif.

    BTW, the rest of Chambers is dynamite. Great new themes, great use of previously existing themes, wonderful new music... it's my second favorite Potter score.

  2. I can´t wait for the Tintin movies. I think I read all the books at least ten times each when I was young, and while I loved the old animated movie about the Inca stuff (where Gibson got his ideas for Apocalypso, no doubts there), I ignored the animated series completely due to unsatisfactory execution. But this CG thing might work... can´t wait, as I said. Andy Serkis as Haddock is a casting stroke of genius...

    The earlier stories were quite ridiculous sometimes, but the later ones captured my imagination again and again. That two-parter about the moon-landing was extraordinarily realistic and tense as hell. Tim´s search (yes, it´s Tim in Germany) for his missing friend Chang in Tibet was highly dramatic.

    I can´t imagine which stories they will do in those three movies, cause there are so many which are absolutely brilliant.

    But I can only hope for Williams to be in top form when he starts composing for this...

    Speaking of Tintin, any word on whether it will be hand or computer animated?
    • CommentAuthorMatt C
    • CommentTimeMay 16th 2008
    It will be computer animated. A la Beowulf, Monster House and The Polar Express. The word is that the movie will use some new 3-D CGI rendering or something like that to make it stand out and look good.

    Eh, I wouldn't immediately discount it because of that particular CGI technique. If both Spielberg and Jackson are behind this, I think it could work very well.

    If it were just Spielberg I'd hold out more hope. But seeing King Kong made me rather lose interest in Jackson.

    Spielberg is a very tight-paced director. His movies usually don't run longer than 2 hours (unless they're for good reasons), so if the two co-direct the third film it'll have a tighter pace than Jackson's previous four films (excepting The Lovely Bones).

    You know, this sounded wrong to me so I checked the run times of all his movies. It turns out that Spielberg hasn't made a movie under 2 hours since Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.

    For those saving up their hard earned money to purchase the ridiculously expensive rare and OOP CD of The Accidental Tourist ($87.99 at Amazon) can now buy it at a reasonable price from FSM.

    One of his least interesting scores, I think, but great that it's available to a wider audience. I will still buy it (I only have a CDR)

    No, he did, actually. It was War of the Worlds (clocking in at 116 min.), but even he was very surprised to see how short it turned out. He prefers a longer ride, indeed, delivering films mainly round the 120 minute mark, more then not over it (Minority: 145, Amistad: 152, A.I.: 146; his average is about 135 min.). However, he never 'stretches' it; all his films take exactly the time they need to. It's one of the reasons why I love him cool

    A.I. feels like it's about 8 hours long. One of Spielberg's few misses in my book.
