Hrm

With a cast like Daniel Craig, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Andy Serkis, and Toby Jones, and stunning animation, The Adventures of Tintin shouldn't be this damn dull.

P.S. Alcoholism is funny!

To be fair, "Alcoholism is funny" is in about 60-80% of the Tintin books. IDK about the rest of it though.

I confess, more than once I've looked at a 'modern update' and said to myself, "wait, THAT'S what they chose to keep?"

Aw. :( That's what I'd heard, but ...

I've not seen the movie, mostly because I always remember being bored by nearly every Tintin story I read when I was younger. I suspect this to be partly because it just wasn't as funny to me as Asterix & Obelisk at the time. :)

I have vague memories of Tintin from when I was in Africa--I think I might have had 1 or 2 comics then. But I don't remember any of it, as I was 5 at the time. :)
