Adventures of Tintin ... The Picture We Have All waited for...

I am sold.

I have only recently subscribed to both Empire and Sight and Sound ... for way too long I have bought them full price from the shop ...

I am proud.

This is why I read Empire...

More importantly my original "hmmm ... I don't know if it will be good" has officially changed to "I am so looking forward to this..."

 Completely steeped in the original artwork by Herge...

And even a close-up of Captain Haddock...

  1. Hi there Simon,

    October 27th marked the one year anniversary of the 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die Club. Our gracious host and originator of this club, TheAnswerMVP2001, has put the club on Hiatus since July. Today, four months later, I am messaging you, as one of the original members of the club, to see if you are still interested in continuing the tradition of the 1001 Film club. Lets pick up where we left off, selecting films from the extensive 1001 Movies list for the club members to review, and also occasionally review the films that other members have selected.

    Long ago, I decided to make 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die the main focus of my website, and this club was a great way of reading what others had to say on the subject, and I miss it. I would be honoured if you would agree to continue our year-old tradition in the same fashion as TheAnswerMVP2001 ran it. I would be happy to host our discussions on my site at

    Please let me know if this is something you'd like to continue. If we get enough people on board, I shall pick up the torch and keep it running.

    Please feel free to contact me through the contact form at

  2. Not quite what I expected, but I had no idea what to expect.

  3. FilmSquish - I have emailed you back! 1001 movies is fantastic!

    Fitz - I don't know either but it does look great - real but playful, the closest thing to live-action herge-tintin

  4. Confession from Jo- Tintin looks creepy, smooth and rubbish.
