The Adventures of Tintin: Boy Reporter comes to Hollywood
Who knew? The boy reporter has been around since 1929 when Belgian cartoonist Georges Remi took him on his first adventure.
Maybe the Movie Slut was too busy reading Nancy Drew when she would have been into cub reporters. But now she's caught up with the intrepid chaser of stories. And hopes his box office receipts warrant a sequel.
"Tintin" is two movies rolled into one. A charming arch comedy when the lad is at home in London and a hyper action flick when he's battling evil-doers.
The result is more than a sum of its parts. It's a movie to be enjoyed by grownups, who aren't too old for cartoons, and kids, who aren't too young for a global romp.
Stay tuned for her review.
