The Adventures of Tintin

There's good motion capture animation, and there's bad motion capture animation. Often the characters take on a creepy look. The Adventures of Tintin refines the technology to the point where the film looks great. Yes, it's good motion capture. Along with 3D, it really has an interesting depth, and everything looks very real. It's a fun story, and the characters are introduced well. There are many references to previous Spielberg films. Most noticeable, Raiders of the Lost Ark and Jaws. The chase scenes were thrilling and the pirate battles rocked. No lack of action here. A fun family film, but the children should probably be older, there is a lot of gun-play and perilous situations. I really liked this one.

Hi Linda,

On behalf of Warner Bros., I am excited to invite you to an exclusive group. We're about to kick off a first-of-its-kind influencer rewards platform, and we would love for you to be a part of it. We've been following Is This Seat Taken? for some time now, and we love it so much that we really hope you consider taking part in what we've built.

The program is called Blu-ray Elite, and as you can imagine, Blu-ray discs are the heart of this program. Here is what we're planning…

We will send you and a very select group a collection of 10-12 new release and classic Warner Bros. Blu-ray discs over the course of 8 weeks – and you get to keep them all! You were chosen because of your enthusiastic attitude, clear passion for film and active voice on Twitter. Personally, I will now be sure to see Tin Tin upon your assurance that the animation isn't creepy looking!

We would love to send you an application for the program - please reach out to me at for more info.
