One last short blog post for another movie I was not able to re-watch before the Academy Awards. The Adventures of Tintin is nominated for Best Original Score by John Williams.

Williams is also nominated for Best Original score for War Horse. My bet, Academy voters are split by Williams’s two nominations. Even if this were not the case, I think The Artist takes this category.

For the movie, itself, the movie was OK. I’m not really sure why, but Tintin simply didn’t appeal to me. Maybe, it was the fact all character are supposed to be real humans and all animals are supposed to be real animals, yet they are able to do ridiculous things and the sequences are “cartooney”, for lack of a better term.


Many, many experts feel Tintin was snubbed in the feature animation category. I liked Tintin better than Kung Fu Panda 2, but if these “experts” would rather Tintin receive a nomination than A Cat in Paris or Chico & Rita, they’re dead wrong.

The Adventures of Tintin has a 7.6/10 rating on IMDB, is 74% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes an has a 68/100 Metascore.
