The Adventures of Tintin - 12/15/12

Every week, Brent, Tom, Colin & Travis gather in a basement somewhere on the outskirts of madness.  A movie is chosen by one member of the group and after it is watched, the others debate the movie's merit for the entertainment of you, the listener. 

On this week's episode of the Saturday Night Freak Show, we enjoy Chicken Cordon Bleu and some wine & cheese (because tonight's movie hero is French) before discussing Tom's pick for the week: Steven Spielberg's motion-capture animation-style take on France's beloved cultural icon, The Adventures of Tintin.  Plus, there's a discussion about 3D films, the contrast between U.S. and Japanese animation, and a lengthy evaluation of the Rankin/Bass version of The Hobbit.


Next week: Colin's pick - Django (1966)
