LRA writes: This is the first film in a very long time where my optimism had absolutely nothing to do with what I was shown in the trailer or any of the advertising campaign. What sold me was the enormous amount of talent that was brought together on the project. You have Peter Jackson (LotR Trilogy) who was producing and even did a some second unit directing work, Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead) and Joe Cornish (Attack the Block) who worked on the screenplay, John Williams (composer of everything that is awesome) doing the score and Steven Spielberg in the director's chair who seemed to be tapping back into his youthful nature that was once thought lost long ago. Collaborations are never a sure thing but I'll be damned if those names (and many more) being attached to this film didn't send tingles of joy through my body whenever I would stop and think about it. The possibilities of what a team like that could produce were unimaginable but somehow they did it, The Adventures of Tintin is the best darn adventure film I have seen in years and also one of the best films of the year.
