The opening credits for "The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn"
Just watched Spielberg's The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn this evening... and thoroughly enjoyed it.
There is so much to the film: the animation is stunning... the soundtrack is up to John Williams' usual standard... and the story, while not appealing to the purists, makes for a good movie.
But then this is my opinion... I watched the film well after all the hype and criticism has died down. I can understand the criticism levelled against it. I was worried Olly would get motion-sick but she didn't... which was a relief.
What really struck me was the opening credits (above). They really bring back the idea of opening credits-as-art. I really loved them and welcomed their length... giving me more to watch.
Whilst searching for the titles on YouTube... I found this opening too:
Not sure where it's from... was it used? is it the Theatrical Opening and the top one is the DVD opening? I don't know... but I thought it was really fab too.
