Tintin and Asterix

I recently watched Stephen Spielberg's Tintin movie, and I liked it even better than the first time around.  It's a non-stop adventure that reminds me of the best that the Indiana Jones films have to offer.  Even though it wasn't a huge success in the United States, the film did well internationally, so I am looking forward t the next installment by Peter Jackson.  I really hope we can eventually see an adaptation of Destination  Moon/Explorers on the Moon, as those were my favorite Tintin tales as a kid.  I can't say that I have caught any of the Roberto Begnini and Gerard Depardieu Asterix movies.  They look like they might be fun, but aimed at very young viewers.

The live action Astèrix films are just as sharp as the books, and if anything “Mission: Cleopatra” is even better than the source (and that’s excellent)! Not children’s films, just good all-ages entertainment…!
