Greetings from the line for Hall H, on Saturday at 5:30 am (well, when I began this post at least). I got up at 4, was here by 10 after 5 or so…
And I have never been further back in line for an event. I cannot even SEE Hall H right now. The Lawn is completely full of campers, the sidewalk across the street was full of campers, the line loops around the grass and back by the bay. I got up at 4 am, and now wonder if I’ll even get in.
I spent my time last night updating all the photos, and never got around to a summary post, so I figured since I have TIME (LOL), I might as well write up my adventures from yesterday. Read on!
“The Adventures of Tintin” is the story of an intrepid reporter and his scrappy dog who get swept up into a global adventure after purchasing a replica wooden ship from a street vendor. Based on the series of comics by Belgian artist Hergé, “Tintin” is the first animated feature to be directed by Steven Spielberg, and his first full length forray into the world of motion capture technology.
His influence is unmistakable, as Tintin takes off on an Indiana Jones-esque adventure in search of treasure. There are wild action sequences, interspersed with family friendly comedy, and an overarching spirit of adventure.
There were a few missing elements for me which keep me from calling it great, but there’s no doubt that anyone who was looking forward to it will be pleased, and it’s well worth your box office dollar this holiday season.
Ok, everybody. I’ve saved the best for last, and now here it is. Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson together, discussing Tintin, film-making, Their other upcoming and current projects, and some brief discussion of their past projects. It was an incredible thing to be a part of, and I couldn’t be more amped up for Tintin.
