:hea::hea::hea::hea::hea:

Americans should NOT produce this film. They have no idea how to grasp Tin Tin. Speilberg's past few movies have been CRAP he's lost his touch.

I'm not happy.

You have no right to say that an entire country full of potentially talented people have no idea how to grasp something.

Admittedly I have no idea what Tin Tin is. But still.

Well it's not his fault if european film makers don't like making family adventure movies. ;) And then when they make them they can suck just as bad as american ones: look at Asterix. (ok it's funny but that stupid kind of funny)

I honestly think this can work out well. Jamie Bell and all. :D

Oh, please. I'm sorry, but to be honest Speilberg is better than every director in every country. He's not my favorite, but he knows what he's doing. I'm sure it will be fine.

Sounds better than I thought it would. I heard it was a live-action thing with Thomas Sangster as Tin-Tin. "degobiller"

And I'm not even obsessed with America like you are ;) But I still think it was a thoughtless way to put it.

It's not a completely idiotic idea. If you think of something that's inherently part of american culture, like the American Revolution, the Civil War or 9/11 - think about whether americans would be happy with a french or spanish or japanese director making a movie about them? Well, I guess some wouldn't mind of course, but there's always that feeling that "it's our history, no one else can understand it as well as we do". This is why Sofia Coppola was criticized by many french when she made a movie about Marie Antoinette, and Brian Singer for making a movie about the nazis who tried to kill Hitler.

Tin Tin I supose is a huge part of belgian and french culture, and even european in general (I also grew up with the cartoons myself). And because it was never big in the US, some of the fans are bound to think that the american public can't truly connect to it. There's a chance that Spielberg might try to americanize the movie because of this, but I hope he isn't that stupid.

I understand where the feeling comes from now.

The thing is though, there's a difference between a film about a cartoon and a film about something like 9/11 or the American civil war. Even I wouldn't be happy about an American making a film about something like the London Blitz.

worried isn't the word i'd use Interseller, i have noticed something about this film though, well the fanbase at least.

# some accept it just because it's Trek, as such they swallow anything.
# it's mainly TNG era fans that love everything about it, and i mean everything.
# TOS fans deeply concerned about it.

on a Trek board somebody rightfully said "some TNG fans refuse to accept that regardless of how good it was, TNG and it's spin-off shows will always be in the TOS shadow. to that end they'll always belittle and bad mouth TOS"

that is true regarding the films and possibly TOS, i find though TNG fans are just bitter Trek XI is using TOS characters,or "not going forward with the timeline"

meh! is pretty much my view on nuTrek :D TOS forever! William Shatner will be on Jonathan Ross's BBC 1 show on Friday, i can't wait :jmp:

i believe Simon Pegg is in Tin Tin also.

Speilberg:
Crystal Skull
Transformers
Eagle Eye (how many films DOES he cast Shai lebeouf in?!)
War of the Worlds
The Terminal

Craig:
Flashbacks of a Fool
The Invasion
Golden Compass


Tin Tin should be a "foreign film" produced in Europe by Europeans.

What's the problem of an American artist wanting to adapt a French story to the big screen?

He like's it let him do it!

Are you mad at Steven Spielberg as a director or as a producer/exec producer? Because I'm pretty sure Michael Bay was the director for Transformers as was someone else for Eagle Eye. Also, a lot of the ones you mentioned are pretty recent.. do you like his older work (hello Jaws, Schindler's List, Empire of the Sun, Indiana Jones, Close Encounters...)?

It seems very common for actors and directors to work together again and again..maybe they like each other?

His face and way of speaking annoys me on a general level, and all of a sudden he seemed to be in every film I watched. So the annoyance level became raised.

But he's really expressive and intense when he's acting, not fake or "mechanic" at all. And he doesn't depend on his looks unlike many of his age. I personally think he's got a great future ahead of him. ;)

Exec Producer and as a Director. Compared to his work in the 80's his work now is unwatchable. That's the point I was trying to make his recent work hasn't been good, so i'm worried that Tin Tin will turn into something horrible.
