to be precise, this will rape your childhood memories and replace them with dead soulless automaton nightmares
Scaliwags! Interlopers! Landlubbers! Visigoths! Motion capture technicians! Rumrunners! Bedlamites! Teabaggers! Antichrists! Troglodytes! Layabouts! Daleks! Spinozans! Flabbergasts! Imagineers! Crankshafts! Scootaloos!
there's no fucking way I'm seeing this movie.
sorry, looks like the Final Fantasy Pirate Christmas Special to me
Man, if there were such a thing as the Final Fantasy Pirate Christmas Special, I would watch the shit out of it. It would be the worst thing anyone ever made, and I would watch it every year.

Why couldn't he have made this with real actors, exactly?
Beat me to it by a minute.
That being said, it looks like it could be a fun adventure film. Not enough movies made in that genre anymore.
Originally Peter Jackson was producing/directing and wanted to use CG to make it look like a living Herge cartoon. Then when Spielberg took over because Jackson wanted to be hands-on with Hobbit, he turned into a Robert Zemeckis/uncanny valley nightmare.

No thanks bro.

I can see this kind of technology looking good ten years from now, but this is like the first few awful experiments with sound in film
Does it look awful? Could you name any specific?
I'm not disagreeing or doubting you, I just don't see what's awful about it. But I've been known to have pretty low standards.
Watching it again I see what you mean.
Still, no where near as bad as The Polar Express or Mars Needs Moms.
Whatever system they're using just isn't up to animating more "human-like" faces correctly yet. I have no doubt that it will at some point, as this already looks better than previous efforts in this vein.
its way near the bottom of the uncanny valley, for sure

This actually looks like it could be fun. I miss the adventure genre.
I have to wonder what was wrong with using real people though...

If i can get over the creepiness of the characters, it looks like it'd be a fun movie.
The only one who doesn't look creepy is the captain, and that's because he has a large cartoonish nose. I wish Speilberg realized the reason why most motion capture movies flop is because of the creepy uncanny valley they're in.
Tin Tin is a comic book, make him look a little more like it.

This looks promising.

This is genuinely gaudy.
They tell us how great everything is going to be in the future, but apparently we have to put up with NOW to get there, and now is terrible.
|Sundry - 2011-07-25 |
I think it looks fine.

Creepy looking characters but it looks like it could make up for it in other ways.
|Redford - 2011-07-25 |
To me the characters look perfectly fine in half the shots and weird and out of place in the other half.

Reminds me of that photoshopped realistic version of Mario.

I have such fond memories of the comics as a child. This doesn't add anything but takes so so so so so so so much away.

Wow, they didn't even attempt to draw the new characters in Herge's style, did they? It almost looks like they cut TinTin out and pasted him into someone else's movie.
|Rach_and_Roll - 2011-07-26 |
...why does TinTin sound like he has a British accent? Isn't he from Belgium?
Like anyone would know what a Belgian accent sounded like. Not even the Belgians could tell you.

It was a good movie but it felt like it ended abruptly at the midway/75% point in the story. It just kinda ends, with the promise of another adventure. But they didnt make it FEEL like the end, so it was kind of a "wait, it's over?" moment.
