I did order the "Adventures of Tin Tin" from the library last week because of the movie. Havent read them since I was a kid and loved them. Will be interesting seeing how I read them as an adult. I have very happy memories of Tin Tin.

Havent seen the movie yet.

I dont mind movies/books. I never except them to be the same. They are two different mediums.

It only really annoys me when they take an excellent book and completely change the ending for a "hollywood happy ending".

Believe it or not, Del, the film does the books some justice. The plot is basically a hybrid of The Secret of the Unicorn and The Crab with the Golden Claws.

You know, i don't remember seeing a "happy ending" in a very long time. i don't even think hollywood knows how to do that anymore. the closest you get is "bittersweet". either one or more of the main characters die, or the ending is a mind****, or just in general depressing.
